Tecno Camon 12 Specifications and Reviews
Tecno has built a reputation for sleek and eloquent designs. Camon 12 does not disappoint in this regard either. A few reviewers have said that they see a superimposed image of the Tecno Phantom 9 when they look at the Camon 12. This makes sense since the Phantom is the flagship’s phone of the Tecno brand, so maybe by mirroring the design Tecno is telling us that there is something special about Camon 12, and so we better take this phone seriously. Let us delve further into this world of a unique design.
The phone comes in various colour options you could choose from – from a blend of blue which they have made ‘Dawn Blue’ to ‘Dark Jade’ to cyan or ‘Sky Cyan’ as they call it.
A tiny space in the central area on the top takes up enough space to allow for a speakerphone grille, the ambient light sensors to automatically regulate the display light, and also, when the camera is on, to regulate the selfie camera aperture, brightness controller.
Where is the world going? Are we going to abandon the 3.5mm headphone jack for an integrated USB 2.0 jack? Well, Tecno just gives you both, so if in the future the world’s phone market goes either way, your phone is good to go. Probably for the next 10 years.
With the volume controller (you can alternatively change this by touching the screen at the top right side) and the power button in the familiar spots, there is not much difference to look at there. Maybe Tecno is just playing safe, or as they say ‘if it’s not broken don’t try to fix it.’
Let us wow ourselves with a colour rich LCD screen with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. This screen measures 6.52-inch IPS and is embedded with a touchscreen panel to give it a quick responding interactive interface. The touchscreen is bezel-less and constitutes an impressive 81.6% of the phone’s body. Standing side by side with the Phantom 9 you get a slightly smaller display screen, but this is still rather good, in fact, better than most smartphones of a similar price range, coming from other phone makers.
Going to the back of the Tecno Camon 12, you are confronted by what is now a common security feature- a fingerprint sensor to keep away intruders and unauthorized persons from breaking into your phone and accessing important and sensitive information.
Maybe for the sake of those of us that are rough and tough, or just plain clumsy and who would probably drop the phone a hundred times in a year, Tecno has not given the back of this phone a glass body panel. – this does not make this phone any less premium, in fact, we should be thanking Tenco for this action. It becomes a nuisance when a phone that was bought a few months ago for a lot of money looks all cracked up. Glass is not for everybody. Well done Tecno!!
The back of the phone is also fitted with triple camera sensors, which is cutting edge when it comes to commercially sold smartphones in the market today. But we talk more about the powerful camera sensors that come with the Tecno Camon 12 super smartphone below.
Camera and Digital Image Capture Department
Some reviews have mentioned that it seems as if it was the same team that worked on the camera for the Phantom 9 that performed the same magic on the Tecno Camon 12 cameras. Mind you, the Tecno Phantom series is the Flagship of the Tecno smartphone brand so that comparison alone is something to write home about.
On the front of the Tecno Camon 12, built for taking selfies and self-recorded videos we have a 16-megapixel camera capable of high definition pictures and video recording, but with no LED flash to support it. Understandably, the space for that LED light is taken by the ambient light sensor which does the job of regulating the phone LCD display brightness, as well as the camera aperture (image brightness auto adjuster).
Think that is good, the cameras at the back are where the juice is! The back cameras are super impressive: we are talking about a 16-megapixel camera that arms the Tecno Camon 12 to take high definition pictures that rival any commercially available smartphone in the world. This is flanked by an 8 megapixels camera which kicks in when there is low light, so as to prevent taking fuzzy photographs. (see why that light sensor is important? ) These cameras are accompanied by a 2 megapixels depth sensor to match.
Tecno remains true to its culture of using ultrawide and wide lenses for their products. These cameras at the back are strengthened with a Quad-LED flashlight which enhances the camera captures with lighting so as to give a richer and brighter image.
Beneath the coloured plastic is a powerful mechanism indeed. The super smartphone ships from the factory with the Android 9 Pie operating system.
Tecno Camon 12 hardware is merged with a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset which was developed using a 12nm process. Powered with a support of 4GB RAM that is plenty of efficiencies unless you are into nuclear codes or designing rockets to explore space.
In the media files storage department, the Tecno Camon 12 comes with a native 64GB memory capacity, but all that can be expanded by 3 times with a dedicated microSD card slot in case you want to put all the movies you have ever watched and want to watch in the future. This phone can easily serve as your external memory module.
Tecno Camon 12 Battery and Power
The Camon 12 comes to you with a 4000 mAh battery, which is a plus given as it is guaranteed to get even heavy phone users through the day with little to no charging required. This phone may only need you to plug in at night before you sleep, and then it will happily work for you during the day – or vice versa, if you are a nocturnal creature!
Unfortunately, this phone is not shipped from the factory with conventional fast charging technology – but it won’t charge slowly either. If you need a charging boost then visit your phone accessory shop.
