Heighten your viewing experience with the AMOLED screen…

Tecno Camon 12 Pro is variant of the Camon 12. And as you can tell from the word pro; there’s an upgrade in the specifications on all fronts.

The Camon 12 pro picks up where the Camon 11 pro left and yes, it has significantly improved the specs which would discuss in detail below.

Before then, here are some things we like and didn’t like;

AMOLED display

Massive RAM storage

Improved screen resolution

On-screen fingerprint scanner

Good looking construction & thinner bezels around the screen

Average battery storage

No fast charging – Haba Tecno, we expected more from the battery department

In terms of design, asides the slight screen increase nothing has changed physically. It sports a sleek body and a crisp display, thanks to the AMOLED screen.

Tecno were generous in the display aspect by offering a 6.35 inches, 97.4 cm2 (~81.3% screen-to-body ratio) and screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~269 ppi density).

Overall, viewing experience is heightened and you’d enjoy the splash of vibrant colours across your screen.

It comes with a tear drop notch and on top is the selfie camera and call speaker grills. Tactile volume rockers and the power button are placed on the sides. Underneath the smartphone seats the USB 2.0 charging port and the speaker grills.

Yes, Tecno didn’t follow the headless phone jack trend. So you get to enjoy listening to music with about any earpiece you could pick up on the market.

The major iteration is the on screen fingerprint. Although we are yet to test it ourselves, many Youtubers reviews have revealed a fast unlock feature. According to most videos, unlocking the screen with wet hands is a drag, but manages to unlock the phone after multiple trials.d

Flipping to the back, you are treated to a three cameras on the right edge and aside the camon inscription that falls vertically, the back falls plain without the fingerprint scanner.


Another aspect I feel there was a significant specs improvement is in the camera department. Indeed, it boasts twice as much pixels with a 32MP camera. Selfies are generally better on camon 12 pro.

Turning to the rear, I know this piece of action is a deal breaker for most customers. Well, it’s not disappointing as the three cameras combine to provide a flawless and inch perfect pictures. You can switch in between the AI bokeh(Portrait) mode to AI recognition HDR and 120 degrees Macro photography.

Taking pictures at night is a breeze, thanks to the Quad flash which is as bright to lit up dark environments.

Hardware X Software X Battery

Out of the box, the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset runs the show. Coupled with a Quad-core chipset & 6GB of RAM, this smartphone runs lighting fast. Multi-tasking and playing games has never been easier, you are assured to seamless actions when using this device.

It runs the latest Android 9 Pie and it’s customized OS the HiOS 5.5. I was less than impressed with the underwhelming 3500mAh. Considering the AMOLED screen – this phone would easily zap more battery juice. Heavy users would definitely have a problem trying to go through the day on a single charge.

There’s a N10,000 difference between the Camon 12 and 12 Pro. I’d advice you to go for the Pro if the price is not going to deflate your purse. Instead of pinching pennies, you should pick the 12 Pro if you can, as the features it holds is worth the price.

You can cop the device for N55,000 – N60,000 and the dollar equivalent is $160 – $180.
