Tecno Mobile has opened the year with the launch of a new phone in the Camon series. On first impressions, the phone feels lighter than the Camon CX which launched in March last year.
The 5.7-inch screen smartphone takes up about 83% of the phone’s front screen and it’s much bigger than the screen of its much more recent predecessors (CAMON CX, CAMON CX air), enabling a much wider viewing.
Smartphone technology is moving pretty fast and devices have to follow suit. The Tecno Camon CM for example has 2.5D glass, a trend that has been hitting quite hard for some time now. What is 2D glass? The 2.5D is a term used for glass displays that feature a slight curvature at the edges known as contoured edges. Although, the curved edges might not be noticeable from afar, but you can see and feel the difference when you hold a phone bestowed with 2.5D glass in your hand. One such phone is the Tecno Camon CM.
One of the most obvious trends in smartphone manufacturing these days is the effort to eliminate the bezel, or frame, that surrounds a phone’s display with a goal of making the users feel like their holding only a screen in their hand with nothing else to distract from what is being displayed on that screen.
It’s safe to say TECNO has achieved that feat and even more with the CAMON CM. The device comes imbedded with an 18:9 screen support single window 1:1 split-screen which can be operated with only one step – meaning you can do two things at a time on the screen.
Other features of the phone are:
Display – 5.7 inches
Storage – 16GB, 2 GB RAM
Camera – 13MP front, 13MP back, both with flash
Battery – 3000mAh
Security – Rear fingerprint scanner though one may also use the usual PIN input.
SIM – Dual SIM with an extra slot for Micro SD.
The phone which will be retailing at 16,999/- on Jumia and will be available in offline shops as from next week.
We’ve got a piece of the phone and will be doing an unboxing and review in the coming days. Keep it here.
