Tecno Camon C8 Specs & Current Price in Nigeria

This is the first Tecno phone to run on Android version 5.0 lollipop OS. Tecno Camon C8 was announced in August 2015.

It supports dual SIM cards one of which must be a mini SIM and the other a micro SIM.



It has an elegant design and a large screen of 5.5-inch High Definition (HD) resolution. This size is suitable for watching videos without straining the eyes.


The IPS capacitive LCD touchscreen makes life easy. It has a resolution of 720×1280 pixels measuring 267 pixels per inch.



Tecno Camon C8 is a sleek phone with a dimension of 150 x 76.3 x 8.8 mm. It has a plastic back cover but the body is metallic finish.

The phone is available in numerous colors. So you have a number of options to select from.

It is equipped with a 3.55 mm audio port and a USB port. It also features power and volume buttons at the exterior. Surprisingly, it comes with a dedicated button for taking pictures.



The smartphone has an impressive Li-Ion battery of 3000mAh. The battery should last for a very long time, at least a day, if you don’t overuse it.

The battery has a standby time of up to 480 hours. According to the company, the battery life can last for 10 hours when charged for just 15 minutes.

The battery which is pegged at the back is flat with a considerable size and is non-removable.




Tecno Camon C8 features a powerful rear camera of 13MP that is capable of taking 4128×3096 pixels pictures.

It is accompanied by a double LED flashlight to give stunning pictures in poor light conditioned environments.

The rear camera features geo-tagging and autofocus technology to enhance the quality of pictures.

It also sports an amazing front camera of 5 MP that gives 2592 x 1944 pixel pictures. The front camera also has an LED flash to give your selfies and groupies bright sparkling colors.

The cameras are awesome! They provide you with astonishing video recordings and breathtaking pictures and selfies that will wow you and your friends.



Like every other Tecno android phone, Camon C8 features USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for sharing data with other devices.

To let you enjoy fast and itch-free internet connection, the device is 2G and 3G network enabled. Having 4G would have been better, though.

With the available Wi-Fi hotspot, you can synchronize your computer and phone to enable you to enjoy seamless internet surfing on your computer.



The device has a large internal storage capacity of 16 GB and can be expanded to about 32 GB via the provided microSD slot to accommodate all your files.

In addition to 1 GB RAM, the device is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core A3 cortex-A53 processor.

Though the RAM isn’t large enough, I’m pretty sure you’d enjoy 2D games on this device. You probably won’t want to burden it with too much multitasking.
