The emergence of the Tecno Camon 11 and its variant Tecno Camon 11 Pro means Tecno is releasing it’s 6th smartphone in this year. It’s safe to assume 2018 was good for Tecno and of course their customers too.
Camon 11 includes a lot of features, but the major highlight is the AI camera and Dual rear camera’s for bokeh effect. The camera comes with many modes to enhance your photography skills. If you shoot pictures right, it could easily pass for a DSLR camera.
Okay, I might have exaggerated a little bit, but the camera quality is just too good for a phone that costs less than N60,000.
With a sleek appearance, great camera, decent storage, and a dirt cheap price tag, you are buying a smartphone that’s worth every nickel and dime.

Just like the Pro, the Camon 11 is built with the same poly-carbonate materials giving it a gradient glossy look. As far as size is concerned the device is slim giving its 156.65 x 75.95 x 5.6mm dimensions. It weighs 158g which feels a bit light in the hands.

Tecno has has jumped on the bandwagon of notch screened smartphone with this device. With a lot of mixed reactions about notches, I don’t know whether or not this is good news or bad for you. That aside, It comes in a slew of eye catching colours of Aqua Blue, Bordeaux Red and my personal favorite; Midnight Black.
On the right side you’ll find the volume rockers & power button. The left side holds the Dual sim & memory card tray. Up front holds the camera & LED flash on either side of the mouthpiece. 3.5mm headphone jack, USB port, blazing speaker grills are all fitted in the bottom. The rear includes the Dual rear cameras and fingerprint reader.
Utilizing an intelligent camera AI and a range of different camera modes of AI selfie, AI beauty, AI HDR, AI Bokeh, you have in this device a photography gear. It comes with a 13MP + 2MP rear facing camera, and a powerful Quad LED flash that allow for taking pictures in dark environments.

Additionally, the AR emoji similar to the iPhone Animoji is used to analyze facial reactions. A funny way to make the conversation lively when chatting with friends and family.
Finally, I feel the camera game on this phone can’t be overemphasized. However, comparing it to flagships of Samsung, iPhone. There is a long road ahead for Tecno, but considering the price of these mid-range smartphone, I can’t help but be content.
Performance X OS X Battery
Performance – The device is powered by a MediaTek MT6761 processor clocked at 2Ghz Quad-Core. For gamers, you’ll appreciate that it comes with the ARM Mali-G71 MP2 GPU for cutting edge graphics.
It is important to know that Tecno Camon 11 comes in two variants, based on their RAM; 3GB & 4GB. Internal storage of the two varies as the former features a 32GB storage and the latter a 64GB of storage. More so, storage can be extended with a MicroSD card that’s up to 128GB.
OS – For a user friendly and intuitive interface, it runs the latest HiOS 4.0. However, the HiOS is still a bit buggy that you may need another launcher. I recommend Nova Launchers as it runs smooth on my device and it can extensively be personalized to your style. In addition, it operates the Android 8.1 OS.
Battery – It comes with a 3750mAh of battery that can last up to a day on a full charge. Provided you don’t play games or surf the internet for extended periods.
