The Tecno Camon 15 series: Tecno Camon 15 Premier and Tecno Camon 15 Pro are the latest devices in Tecno’s flagship lineup of its superb camera devices. And this comes in, right next to its Camon 12 series.
The price of Tecno Camon 15 Pro in Kenya is around Kshs 18,500 with the Techno Camon Premier going for roughly Kshs 25,000
The Phone comes with some very interesting features which set and make it a special proposition for those who look for more features in the budget offering.
Techno Camon 15 features a Quad 48 MP primary camera, a 4000 mAh battery and 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM.
Pop up Selfie Camera
Tecno Camon 15 Pro is the first Tecno smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera. This is the new feature it brings with it. Sure pop-up selfies are a cool thing first for what they are and then for the room they create for the display’s estate. The back panel of this phone is also textured with a design we are dubbing, ‘slim rays of light’. The fingerprint scanner has been brought back to the back panel from Camon 12 Pros under the display. That new pop up selfie aligns itself (from the back) with the camera module.
Last year we saw an AMOLED panel but with 720 x 1600 pixels resolution. In 2020 an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen was preferred with a sharp 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. Camon 15 Pro’s display is 6.53 inches covering a 104.7 cm2 surface area. It is a very sharp display you will love how crisp it is and how bright this display can get. Of course, the view estate is so satisfying thanks to the pop-up camera which allows more room for the same.
48MP Quad Camera
Tecno Camon 15 Pro arrives as the first device with a 48MP quad shooter in this price range. I cannot find the appropriate words to explain home how this very rarely happens. It actually almost never happens, finding a 48MP sensor for the price you pick Camon 15 Pro for. Then there is a motorized pop-up 32 MP selfie camera to ice the cake. It is a camera centered smartphone this no doubt about that dear reader. Video recording is 1080p@30fps for both the main and selfie camera lenses.
Tecno Camon 15 Pro is an Android-powered smartphone running Android 10.0 with HIOS 6.0. It comes having 128GB of expandable internal storage with 6GB of RAM. Network support for it is up to 4G and there it is Dual SIM phone with support for dual stand-by. We say Tecno has been generous with both storage and memory of Camon 15 Pro. It is also great to see the current OS installed from the word go. Hopefully, it will receive an Android 11 update.
Interesting why Tecno included a 5000maAh batter on the base model yet a 4000 mAh battery on Tecno Camon 15 Pro. We would have expected it to be the other way round but it it is as it is. We are looking at a smartphone that when fully charged would take you a whole day of usage with some ease. Strange also is the realization that in 2020 Tecno still includes a micro USB 2.0 port in the now glorious days of type-C. Hello Tecno. Nevertheless, this phone holds up great. 4000 mAh is still a decent battery capacity.
