The Tecno Camon CX camera-centric phone

Tecno Camon CX or C10

The Tecno Camon C10 also known Tecno Camon CX has been on the wait list of many after the unexpected high price tag of the 2016 flagship device –Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus– left a lot of Tecno fans disappointed.

According to a reliable source, the Chinese base company -Tecno- is planning a minor shake-over, the company is rumored to release only three flagship smartphones in 2017, instead of the annual four flagship devices we have seen in the previous years.

As you already know, the Tecno Camon CX will subsequently succeed the last year’s Camon C9 which proved to be a great device.

There have already been a lot of rumors about the concept and features of the Tecno Camon CX, top mobile pundits are already talking about the next generation camera advancements and other features expected of the brand’s Camera-centric product line.

When looking for phones with quality selfie or wefie cameras, Infinix S2 Pro comes to mind with its dual front camera (13MP + 8MP) and wide-angle of 135 degree.

It goes for about the same price as the Tecno Camon CX, though the CX has a better display than S2 Pro in terms of quality and size, (the S2 Pro has 5.2-inch display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels). S2 Pro has its RAM and internal storage capacity (3GB RAM and 32GB ROM) to fight with though.

If quality display is why you are attracted to the Tecno Camon CX, you might fancy Infinix Note 3 Pro which comes with 6-inch display, and feature full HD display just like the CX.

The Note 3 Pro comes with 3GB RAM which is 50% more than the 2GB RAM of the Tecno Camon CX and if also sports a larger battery capacity (4500mAh compared to 3200mAh battery of the Tecno Camon.
