Tecno Camon 12 Price in Nigeria
The Tecno Camon 12 was priced at 47,500 Naira in Nigeria yesterday, the Smartphone is yet to be available on stores but by next week, it will be made available based on the time of writing this post.
Looking at the price of Tecno Camon 12, with all the specs it offers, such as the 4gb RAM, 64gb ROM, huge 6.5 inches IPS LCD display, i can honestly tell you that the price is okay. Which Smartphone Manufacturer will give you such Smartphone at that price, maybe there are but i haven’t seen that, if you have, you can let me know in the comments below, the Tecno Camon 12 will be available on Jumia as well as on other online shops like on Konga, Jiji or other offline stores within your locality.
On several social media platforms, people are saying that they didn’t believe Tecno will launch this Smartphone at this price, some where saying that it is because of the new Smartphone Brands that recently entered the Nigeria Market that rise up the competition and thus making every Smartphone brands to step up their game and also in low prices so as to retain their customers, well this maybe true.
Tecno Camon 12 Design and Display Specs Overview
As we can see it in the Tecno Camon 12 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 looks exactly like the Tecno Phantom 9, A Nigeria Tech Youtuber Eric Okafor put the Camon 12 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side by side with the previous Tecno Camon 11,you can clearly see 2019 in the Camon 12 Design, the Tecno Camon 11 looks outdated standing with the Tecno Camon 12, Tecno really did a great job in the Tecno Camon 12 design.As far as display goes, it has a 6.4 inches HD+ display which has a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 Hardware & Software Specs Overview
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 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 6gb RAM and 64gb ROM, with all this, performance is at its best.
The Mediatek Helio P22 is the same chipset that is powering the Camon 11 and Camon 11 Pro, 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 mighty be faster on the Camon 12 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, more smooth navigations or performance.
