TECNO Camon CM is TECNO Mobile’s first smartphone with edge-to-edge (bezel-less) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. As such, TECNO is able to pack in a big 5.7 inches screen in a phone the size of phones with traditional 5-inches displays.
The Camon CM is slightly less powerful than its older sibling, TECNO Camon CX (specs here), and it also costs a little less, so all is fair. Do not worry about it being less powerful though; you won’t notice the difference in most situations and use cases.
Both front and rear cameras are rated at 13 megapixels. Internal storage is 16GB. If you capture and download lots of videos and heavy images, you may need a memory card to complement that internal storage.
Android 8 Oreo is the latest version of Android at the time of launching the Camon CM, but TECNO has released it with Android 7 Nougat. Nougat is still up-to-date enough and you will have no trouble with apps that you install from Google Play Store.
There is a rear-located fingerprint scanner, as well as 4G LTE for fast mobile internet. With a 3,000mAh battery, you should have no trouble with the battery running out of power within a few hours. TECNO is silent about fast charging though, so we can safely assume that it is not built in. Again, we can see why the Camon CX costs much more. It has more to offer.
The TECNO Camon CM is a beautiful phone. It is a great choice for those looking to upgrade from their TECNO C9, TECNO C7, and TECNO J8 and who do not want to spend more than N50,000 on a new smartphone. It cost about N47,000 at launch.
