Tecno Camon 12 Air Design and Display Specs Overview

Tecno Camon 12 Air Specs

As we can see it in the Tecno Camon 12 Air Specifications table, this device back and frame is made from a shiny Polycarbonate material that makes it look quite premium, it weighs around 168 grams which makes it light to hold in the hand.

This year, the Camon series looks very identical to the Phantom 9, you might find yourself checking for the labels and the Orange button quite often to distinguish them, the dimensions of the Tecno Camon 12 Air looks exactly like the Tecno Phantom 9, An Indian Tech Youtuber put the Camon 12 Air case on the Tecno Phantom 9 and it perfectly matched, it fits very okay on the Phantom 9 and someone who don’t know might think it is actually Phantom 9’s Case.

Comparing the Design side by side with the previous Tecno Camon 11 Pro, you can clearly see 2019 in the Camon 12 Air Design, the Tecno Camon 11 Pro looks outdated standing with the Tecno Camon 12 Air, Tecno really did a great job in the Tecno Camon 12 Air design.

As far as display goes, it has a 6.55″ inches HD+ IPS LCD display which has a resolution of 1520 by 720p, 19:5:9 aspect ratio and PPI of 277.

The display will be bright outdoors and would also be responsive to type on, viewing angles will also be great.

But the only draw back you might get is in the display resolution, it is only a 720p display so you can’t stream above 720p videos on YouTube, it is still good though because it will keep your data consumption at minimum but those who is addicted to 1080p resolution might find it some how not pleasing to the eyes.

Tecno Camon 12 Air Hardware & Software Specs Overview

Tecno Camon 12 Air

Yes, the Tecno Camon series are quite known for their camera performance but that doesn’t mean they are a slouch when it comes to performance, in accordance with the Tecno Camon 12 Air Specifications, it is powered by Mediatek Helio P22 which is clocked at 2.0GHZ, it runs on an operating system of Android 9.0 Pie and Tecno customized HIOS 5.5 slapped on top of it, it also has a PowerVR GE8320 GPU, paired with a 3gb RAM and 32gb ROM, with all this, performance is at its best.

The Mediatek Helio P22 is the same chipset that is powering the Camon 11 Pro and Camon 11, so if you have handled either the Camon 11 or Camon 11 pro you might have just tasted how this device will run.

Though it might be faster on the Camon 12 Air or maybe run the same because the Camon 11 only has 3gb RAM, RAM is not always counted as a speed element but it is still very good as it will keep your current application in its Memory, so higher RAM, means more smooth navigations or performance.
