When the name Camon and Tecno are mentioned in a sentence, you’d expect a high-end smartphone with outstanding camera and a chic to get heads turned. Well, that’s what the Tecno Camon CM is all about.
Not only is the Camon CM sleek but comes with the first of its kind design on a Tecno phone – a full screen display.
Well, what does that amount to?
Obviously, it means consuming media, playing games and whatever that find its way to the frameless screen is going to be exciting.
Let’s get a sneak of the Key features:

- 4G: Yes
- Sim: Dual Mini Sim
- Screen: 5.7 -inch HD IPS Touch Display, 720 x 1440 pixels (364 PPI)

Let’s take a look at the perks and perils of the phone. However, this verdict is totally subjective.
- Sleek and great aesthetics
- Utilize corning gorilla glass for maximum screen protection
- 18:9 full screen display
- Fingerprint scanner
- Excellent Cameras – both Front & Rear
- Plastic finish – reduce the premium outlook
- Price – may be a bit expensive for budget buyers
- The 18:9 full screen features a 720 x 1440 pixel resolution which doesn’t compliment the revolutionary design. The Camon Cx screen could have been a perfect fit. (Opinionated View of a smartphone critic)
DESIGN, DISPLAY & FEATURES
The Tecno Camon CM sports a full body to ratio screen 18:9 which ensures users have media plastered all over the big screen – you’ll never have to miss the little details. Additionally, it comes with a large 5.7 inch screen.
In terms of size, Tecno has trimmed the size to 7.75mm, this makes it easy on the hand and adds to the sleekness of the device.
Scared the screen might be shattered to bits and pieces when it falls? Then don’t, cause the 2.5 corning third glass stands up to impact.
The fingerprint scanner is located on the back on the phone. Also, the rear camera and Quad-LED flash are located at the top edge.
To be very honest, users had expected more from the camera. For a frameless full screen device, 13MP on both rear and the front came short of expectation. But this is reality and the this is what it has to offer:
The back camera is equipped with 13MP with f/2.0 aperture and the Quad-LED flash allow for great pictures in poor lit environments. On the other hand, the front utilizes a 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture, LED flash and there’s a HDR portrait feature which allow for crisp and clear selfies.
PERFORMANCE X SOFTWARE
The heart of the phone is driven by the MediaTek MTK6737H Quad-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz. Coupled with 2GB of RAM, the result is a fast smartphone that executes tasks without lagging.
It features a 16GB of storage which can be expanded to 128GB with a MicroSD card.
Rumor has it – there’s a 3GB RAM variant with 32GB ROM, although the claim is still unfounded. You should bottle up your excitement for now till the variant is unveiled.
With that said, the interface is spiced up with the Android 7.0 (Nougat), while the HiOS brings a revamped feeling to users.
Watch the First
The Tecno Camon CM employed a 3000 mAh battery which rather suits the screen resolution. There’s also an significant battery conservation.
