Here’s the Whole Truth about Tecno Camon X and Camon X Pro

Tecno Camon X and Camon X Pro are two beautiful Android phones which are upgrades to the Camon CX series.

They are the first Tecno’s flagship smartphones of 2018, released on the 5th of April to be precise.

Personally, I think the Tecno X and X pro were released to compete with Infinix Hot S3.

Both phones come with premium designs and excellent cameras that make them a good match to even more expensive phones.

I’ll try to keep the hype out of this review and keep it honest.

Fingers crossed!


Design And Display

The phones come with a cool but not super fascinating design. The body of both devices is plastic and features a golden stripe at the edges and sides. And like most phones nowadays, comes with the premium iPhone-like design having the fingerprint sensor at the back.

Like the iPhone, you’ll find the rear 16MP camera at the top right corner. And a little beside it you’ll find the LED flash, which has four tiny flashes all arranged in a circular ring.

Both devices have a SIM slot that also accommodates the micro SDcard.

The displays are impressive but not new in the smartphone world. They sport the trending 18:9 aspect ratio on a massive 6-inch screen. Camon X comes with a 1440 x 720 pixels HD display while Camon X pro sports a 1080 x 2160 pixels (FHD+) resolution.

They have small bezels that almost appear to be non-existent.

Camon X and Camon X pro are pre-installed with Android v8.1 Oreo. You’ll get amazing features like sleek notifications, picture-in-picture, and so on.

It also comes with Tecno HIOS v3.3, which is the latest user interface of the brand as at the time of its release.


Processors and Internal Storage

Both devices are powered by a 2.0GHz Octa-core processor, MediaTek Helio P23 processor.

While the Camon X has a 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, Camon X pro packs a more prominent 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Camera has remained the selling point of Tecno since the launch of the Camon series. It’s no surprise that both devices are designed with high-quality cameras for a better picture experience.

Tecno Camon X/Xpro camera

Camon X sports a 20MP selfie camera and a 16MP rear camera while the X pro has a bigger 24MP selfie camera and 16MP rear camera.



Both come with a 3750 mAh non-removable Li-ion battery. With that, you get at least 10-12 hours usage time after a full charge. I mean a heavy usage such as gaming, browsing, or video streaming.

Other Features

They’re both endowed with the Blink-to-Capture feature. It’s a new feature that triggers the camera when a focused object blinks. This will make it easier to capture better photos. But honestly, it’s useless against non-human images.

Tecno Camon X/X pro

Also, they feature face recognition technology. It’s not a new technology, I know. But it’s a huge plus — at least, for the competition.


Final Verdict

As for me, I believe Tecno Camon X and Camon X pro are worth the money.

They have everything you’ll need in a smartphone; premium design, excellent performance, abundant storage, and excellent cameras. And to seal a good deal? They come at reasonable prices too.

With Camon X and Camon X pro, you’re not only purchasing a premium device but a future one too.
