Just this week, Tecno launched the Camon 17 smartphones in Kenya. This lineup of affordable but smart mobile gadgets are; Tecno Camon 17 and Camon 17 Pro. I’ll go for the Pro version for its additional benefits if asked to choose. Who wouldn’t want that? But before we even go through the features, it is worth appreciating the fact that TECNO mobile has turned its focus on the young at heart individuals whose love for selfies is now the company’s new mission and goal.
The manufacturer recently launched a documentary, titled “Rise of The Selfie” which dives into the selfie’s history and why it has become such an essential feature of the current generation. This aligns with a cause TECNO has always been championing: a smartphone is not about the brand, but about the consumer himself. To be the smartphone brand for the users who are always “young at heart” and challenge themselves for new things, TECNO CAMON 17 Pro enables individuals’ want to further express their unique selves.
CAMON 17 Pro is here to enable the users to control their own images by taking photos that showcase the best of themselves and also is an unconscious self-suggestion to be the best self, which is the core value of selfie. The Camon 17 Pro has an inconspicuously placed ultra-wide sensor front selfie camera of 48MP powered by the next generation TAIVOS 2.0 which optimizes its settings based on the user’s scenery changes to capture the best photos one can ever imagine of.
Its front camera setup consists of a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide unit, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP monochrome sensor. The super night mode adds clarity to your photos when taken in the dark, now you won’t have to worry about what time of the day or night to capture the best shots of you as the camera lets in more light and optimizes details against a low-light background. It also eliminates the clutter in your background to make you stand out.
Tecno Camon 17 Pro flaunt a 6.8-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels (FHD+), 395 PPI, 500 nits peak brightness, centered punch-hole, 82% screen-to-body ratio, and an added bonus of 90Hz refresh rate. It is powered by MediaTek Helio G95 chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage to ensure you never lack space to keep your data.
Camon 17 Pro runs Android 11 backed by a 5000mAh battery that supports 25W fast-charging, so you won’t have to spend your time every now and then at the socket. As far as connectivity is concerned, Camon 17 Pro offers dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port. It comes in California dream silver and Malibu blue color options and is equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, which is embedded in a power button. Dimensions-wise, the device measures at around 168.89×76.9×8.95mm.
