Camon 15 Pro Review

It’s back isn’t smooth because it has some textures on it and that will make it stay on your hand without sliping off. The edges are curved and that will make it easier to fit in your pocket. Looking at the right side, there is a volume button which is a bit separated from each other.

The power button is just beneath the volume rockers. At the left side, there is a slot for dual Nano SIMs with an SD Card. The smartphone has a dimension of 161.2 x 75.9 x 8.5 mm and weighs about 197grams. It comes in two colours which are Ice Jadeite & Opal white.

Display

When you look at the display, there is one thing that you will immediately notice, what’s that? There is no notch because it now uses a pop up camera and that creates room for the display. No wonder it has a screen to body ratio of 91.2%.

The chin and the bezels has now been trimmed down a bit which makes it look better than the Camon 12 Pro. The screen measures a 6.53inch with a surprising Full HD+ resolution, that is a 1080p by 2340 pixels. Under sunlight, the screen will perform better than the Camon 12 Pro because it has a 480nits brightness.

No AMOLED here, it uses an IPS LCD panel with a 403ppi density for amazing color reproduction. Media consumers will so much love this phone because of that full view display. Even without an AMOLED screen, the Full HD+ resolution is something to be proud of.

Hardware & Software

Under the hood, the Camon 15 Pro is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset which has an Octa core processor clocked at 2.35GHz. It runs on the latest Android 10 with the newest HIOS V6.0.1. For graphics or gaming, there is a PowerVR GE8320 GPU responsible for it.

The processor is supported by a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There is a dedicated micro SD card slot where you can extend the storage up to 256GB. WhatsApp call recording was made possible by the HIOS 6.0.1.

Camera

The Super Night Lens’ is powered by a DSP AI chip that will help take in more light during night photography. On the front, it has a 32MP pop up AI powered camera for selfies or video calls. The rear camera can shoot videos in 4K at 30fps as well as 1080p videos at 30fps, while the front camera can only shoot a 1080p videos at 30fps.

There is a quad led flash at the rear which helps in low lightening situations. Camon 15 Pro is the first device from Tecno to come with a 48MP camera. In short, it is the first from Transsion holdings. The company claimed that it can take very clear picture in low lightening conditions.

Battery

What is supplying power or energy to the Camon 15 Pro is a 4,000mAh battery which is lesser than the 5,000mAh battery in the Camon 15. It doesn’t support fast charging but Tecno assures you of full day usage. It uses a Micro USB cable.
