Recently, Tecno one of the prominent budget smartphone maker in Nigeria and a number of other African countries released a number of smartphones. One of which is the Tecno Camon X, a stripped variant of the Camon X Pro.

The new smartphone comes with the latest design trend including a bezel-less screen with elegant tall 18:9 aspect ratio. Surely, the Tecno Camon X keeps up on how a modern smartphone should look like.

In essence, the smartphone is one centered on taking pleasant selfies. You can consider this a followup of the Tecno Camon CM launched earlier in the year.

Like we’ve come to expect from them, the Tecno Camon X is a dual SIM Android device which has support for LTE and runs on the Oreo flavor of the operating system experienced through Tecno’s proprietary custom User Interface, HiOS.

From the specs, the device would have a very slim profile, sport a polycarbonate build and can be picked up in any of Gold, Blue or Black colors.

The Camon X Pro could be the best alternative if you’re not satisfied with what the Camon X has to offer, the Pro version offers more in some crucial aspects but carries a heavier price tag.

Other good alternatives include Infinix Hot S3 with 20MP front camera and 18:9 screen aspect, Tecno Camon CM that also features the 18:9 aspect ratio.

At first glance, you would agree with me that the Tecno Camon X might be the most good looking smartphone from Tecno in the Camon series even overall. The new smartphone has a nice bezel-less display giving you a full view.

This means you have a smartphone that has a high screen to body ratio (up to 81%). However, it is still made from polycarbonate rather than metal or glass covering you have in more premium smartphones.

Tecno Camon X is available in three colours: Champagne Gold, Midnight Black, City and Blue, though all colours will not be available in all countries.


Onto the full view 6-inch display, it is quite a beauty but when it lights up you would notice the low resolution and not too crisp colour reproduction compared to the more expensive Tecno Camon X Pro. The display is also pretty bright at 500 nits.

Besides that, both smartphones have the 18:9 aspect ratio in common with little bezels in the way. There is also a 1440 X 720 HD+ resolution display leaving the pixel density at 275 ppi. The display is covered in 2.5D curved glass


Moving on to the hardware featured on the smartphone, the Tecno Camon X goes for a decent mid-range SoC. In that regard, the smartphone has a MediaTek Helio P23 chipset with eight cores the highest of which clocks at up to 2.0GHz. When it comes to graphics munching, the smartphone is provided with a Mali GPU.

In continuance, the Tecno Camon X has a 3GB RAM for multitasking and apps installation. Storage space stays at 16GB or 32GB some of which already occupied by system software and pre-installed apps. However, you could expand this up to 128GB using a MicroSD card. As for the OS, the Tecno Camon X boots the latest Android 8.1 Oreo from the box.


In the area of photography, the Tecno Camon X is well equipped especially in the Selfie department. At the rear side, you have got a 16MP camera with ring LED flash (quad-LED). For selfies, a 20MP front camera is held responsible having an adjustable flash as accomplice. With this, you should be able to take some nice pictures for your social media platforms.

Camera has always been the headline feature for Tecno Phones in the Camon series and the Tecno Camon X is carrying on with the heritage. The 20 megapixels selfie cameras offers a dual adjustable flash for natural looking photos.

You also get bokeh effect on the selfie camera, so you can blurr out the background, despite the fact that the Tecno Camon X offers only single camera. The camera also supports HDR and has some AI baked into it.

Battery Capacity and Sensors

You have fairly enough battery inside the Tecno Camon X to offer daily usage.

Boasting of a 3,750mAh battery capacity, the smartphone is well above the mediocre capacity line. As a plus, the smartphone allows you to charge using quick charge, giving you a full charge in a relatively short time.
