The Tecno Camon CX, also known as Tecno Camon C10 has been on to-buy-list of Nigerians after the unforeseen attached high price tag placed on the 2016 flagship device.
The Tecno Camon succeeded last year’s Camon C9 which lots of customers agree to be a great device. On the internet, there had been lots of talks on the rumors of the features and concept of Tecno Camon C10.
The badass clear camera advancements and other smooth features made the phone a go-for-selfie lovers.
As early as April 2017, the Tecno Camon CX made it way to the Android market. The design concept f this flagship device is a total makeover from what we saw in Tecno Camon C9.
Tecno have gone out of their way to focus on the front camera and this time, features like low light technology, wide angles, and panorama have been introduced in the front camera.
The device is said to come with 16 mega pixel camera for both front and back shooters, it also carries some extraordinary camera features that labels it the “best selfie camera under extreme lowlight” or generally, in extreme conditions.

Tecno Camon CX carries a full metal body, and boasts of the latest Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box. This with no doubt is the first device from Tecno Company to run the Android Nougat OS.
The UI is designed with HiOS 2.0. Tecno has been rumoured to provide Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade for Camon C9 users.
The Tecno Camon CX stands tall with a 5.5 inches full HD display plus a 2.5D curved glass. Inside the board is a mediaTek (MTK) Helio P10 Octa-core 64-bit Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.5 GHZ. This processor is supported by a 2/3GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage space.
For heavy users, you can opt for the 3GB RAM version to enjoy the experience of a lag-free multi-tasking experience.
It supports dual SIM with dual standby, 4G LTE network support and the storage is expandable via MicroSD up to 128GB.
That’s not all…. It gets better
The Tecno Camon CX comes with a Fingerprint canner feature which is placed at the back below the camera region. The Camon C9 was first said to come with this feature (Fingerprint sensor) but it turned out to be false. We sincerely hope the same won’t repeat for the C10 device.
The battery is not all impressive. In fact, Tecno Camon CX houses a 3200 mAh Li-Polymer battery which is said to support a light speed charge, The Chinese OEM is saying that an hour charge of the Tecno Camon CX can give you up to 70% of battery juice and also, 10 minutes of charge can last you a day. The device should also come with a super screenshot (not really sure what this feature does but it sounds kinda interesting).

Want to know the best part?
It tells for the same price tag as the Tecno Camon CX, though the CX has a much better display than S2 Pro in terms of quality and size, (the S2 Pro has 5.2-inch display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels). S2 Pro features 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage capacity to contend with though.
If quality display is what you fancy a lot, you might opt for Infinix Note 3 pro that comes with 6-inch display, and feature full HD display just like the CX. The Note 3 Pro comes with 3GB RAM which is 50% higher than the 2GB RAM of the Tecno Camon CX and it also sports a bigger battery capacity (4500nAh compared to the lesser 3200mAh battery life of the Tecno Camon).
