This Tecno Camon CM Took Over 1000 Professional Engineers to Design

Tecno Camon CM is obviously a member of the Tecno Camon family. The “M” stands for “More”.

It’s the first Tecno phone released in 2018 as it was launched in Ikeja mall in Lagos, January 2018.

The phone comes with a few outstanding features that aren’t common to Tecno phones or other brands until its release. Even with these features, it still runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. Let’s hope an upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo is provided.

Tecno revealed that over 1000 engineers worked on the phone within 15 months with over 50 partners around the world. Yes, this is how far they went to design the Camon CM.

One of the outstanding features of the phone is the 0.1s fast fingerprint scanner as stated during the launch. But is it really that fast in reality?

Physical Description

It’s a very light and sleek phone with a thickness of just 5.6mm. The power and volume buttons are situated at the right side of the phone. The left side is where the SIM and microSD cards are inserted. The top carries the 3.5mm headphone jack while the bottom has the USB 2.0 port and speaker grills fixed to it.

Bezel-Less Display

The device is designed with a bezel-less screen that features 18:9 body aspect ratio, giving a very convenient full-screen display. This is the best display for video and reading on any smartphone before it.

Tecno mobile proudly tags the 1440 x 720 pixels resolution as HD+ because it is confident of its capabilities. Apart from size, the display also sports 2.5D Gorilla glass protection for much more durability.


13MP Cameras & Quad-Flash

Tecno knows that the first thing most smartphone users look out for, these days, is the camera and the quality of image a phone produces both in a bright and low-lit environment.

This is why the 13MP back camera was designed with 4-LED flash that’s 3 times better than a normal flashlight. And this is a good thing if you have dark skin because taking pictures at night in dark environments won’t be a problem anymore.

The front camera is designed for better selfies, groupies, and wefies. It’s also 13MP and has an LED flash sitting next to it.


Storage Space

In my own opinion, the storage space doesn’t really compliment its outstanding features. The ROM is pegged at 16GB while the RAM is 2GB. This should have been expanded to 32GB and 3GB ROM and RAM respectively. It would have made the device even more appealing.

This isn’t a problem, though, if large space isn’t a major feature you expect to see on your next smartphone.


1:1 Real Split-Screen

Here’s another feature that isn’t found on most Tecno phones.

What the split-screen means is that you can seamlessly use your phone for multi-tasking on the same window. Your screen will be divided into two halves so that you can carry out two different tasks at the same time. This is a feature found in some Nokia Android phones.

What’s in the box?

Okay, don’t expect anything spectacular. The box contains the phone itself, Tecno branded earpiece, power adapter, USB cable, silicon jelly cover, 13 months warranty seal, user guide, SIM ejector tool, conformity card, and Boomplay music subscription details.
