Tecno Phatom 6 and Phatom Plus, they just launched another device called the Tecno Camon CX and CX Air or C10 and C10 Air. The Tecno Camon CX is a unique phone that embraces the trends of it’s time. If you have known Tecno Mobile, whenever you hear the name Camon, you should naturally think of a “Camera”. The Camon family of Tecno smartphones are mostly focused on a better camera while blending it with high-end specs. From the Camon C5, C7, C8, C9 and now the Camon CX, Tecno has been improving a lot when it comes to mobile photography. Here are some questions to ask yourself before I continue.
- What is all this with CX / CX Air everywhere?
- Why should I buy the Tecno Camon CX or the CX Air?
- What is so special about the Tecno Camon CX that I shouldn’t ditch it?
- What is the price of the Camon CX?
Tecno Camon CX / CX Air Specs PriceWell, if you take your time to read this post, answers to those questions and more will be found here. I can feel how eager you are, so let’s unleash the info. Tecno Camon CX and her little sister, the CX Air, were launched on Thursday, the 23rd of March 2017 at the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. The device would be available in 41 countries across Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. This device is focused mainly on photography which is what the young generation admire most in smartphones. The Camon CX is well-built with “aerospace-grade” aluminum alloy uni-body, light and also very slim at a 5.6 mm thickness. There’s a 2.5D NEG glass (Nippon Electric Glass) covering the 5.5 inch Full HD IPS display. Now, let me be more precise on the specs of the latest addition to the Tecno Camon series.
PhotographyLike I said, the Camons are mainly focused on Camera/Photo while balancing other specs. The Camon CX photography features are quite interesting. The device comes with a 16 Megapixel main camera with an advanced sensor. The camera is backed up by 4 led flashlights, put together in a ring-like form. With 4 led lights, taking photos in low light conditions via the Camon CX will be very bright, detailed and colorful. The front-facing camera is also a 16Mp selfie camera which is kept at the center for a perfect selfie. The camera, according to Tecno will make all of your selfies worth showing off. There’s also a dual flashlight for taking selfie photos while it’s dark. The front-facing camera on the CX has something new to spice up your selfies. The camera has a feature that gives you an intriguing 4-in-1 HD photo that is 30% brighter. Each pixel sensor detects light, captures individual images and converts the information into signals before forming the final image, resulting in selfies that are 30 percent brighter, capturing special moments perfectly. You also get an amazing 8 customized real-time portrait filter options to make your photos more stunning.
Storage, Android Version & PowerTecno is always adding some fresh features to all their new devices. The CX and CX Air aren’t exceptional. They both have a 16GB onboard storage which can virtually go a long way for an average user. Although other OEMs are really increasing that figure, Tecno thinks that’s okay for a professional smartphone photographer. All of the features on this device will be justly controlled by a 2GB of RAM. 2GB RAM is kinda old to high-end users or those that have used devices with 4GB RAM or above. Well, Tecno feels you won’t experience any hitch with the Camon CX.
“You can buy the Tecno Camon CX for justThe Camon CX runs on Tecno’s custom UI, HiOS 2.0, which is based on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS(Operating System) coupled with all the unique features that HiOS has to offer.
