This phone already is showing massive differences from the Tecno Camon X. it surely is the Pro version of the two, and in almost all ways.


Design and build

A beautiful beast this is. Tecno must have really invested a lot of time and energy to come up with a phone as good looking as this. Where do I start? Okay first it stands at 158.6 mm tall and is super slim at 5.5 mm thickness. Standard smartphones have thickness of 6.5 – 10mm thickness, but look what we have here. 5.5mm! It is in my head, that the slimmer a smartphone the sleeker it looks, and best believe that is the case here. Be sure to check its pictures online at the above mentioned website.

On the front of it is a clean bottom bezel and a top one having a selfie camera, sensor and call speaker. This phone does have face ID by the way, a feature you can use to unlock your smartphone with.

The back has the primary camera and quad LED ring flash on the top right corner and vertically placed. At the middle top is TECNO branding with the rear mounted fingerprint scanner right above it. The volume and power buttons are placed on the same side of this phone. Again, a beautiful phone it is.


Display and camera


It comes with a Full HD + IPS LCD capacitive touch screen of 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution. A very sharp display it is. It has great viewing angles and good brightness that allows outdoor visibility. Color punch saturation is top notch here allowing for the best experience when viewing whatever is on it. The best thing about it is that it stretches all the way to the side bezels. An end to end display it is.



We get two very impressive cameras here. A powerful 16 MP primary camera that shoots up to 1080p video quality and yet another even more impressive 24 MP front facing camera. Now these two lenses are somewhere up there in the list of smartphones with great cameras, that I have to note. Tecno Camon X Pro is a phone that camera fanatics will definitely find fantastic. Images are sharp, crisp, clear you name it when shot by a Tecno Camon X Pro’s camera- whichever you decide to go for. I would rate it 8 out of an impossible 10. This probably is this phones key selling point.


Performance and memory


It comes running on Android OS, version 8.0 Oreo. Great job TECNO for including the latest version(s) of Android on all your new releases. This is something even some top companies do not do, look! Then it is a MediaTek device in that it has a MediaTek Helio P23 chipset. It also comes with an Octa core CPU and a Mali G71 GPU performs graphical functions.



Its internal storage is 64GB and it runs on 4GB of RAM. And should you run out of space you can always chip in an SD card here. It does support one but only up to an additional 128 GB.



Could it be that this is the first TECNO smartphone with quick battery charging technology? I guess maybe. But nonetheless, it is a feature here. Its Li-Polymer 3750 mAh battery which will last a whole day’s usage by the way will be charged by 9V/2A fast battery charging tech.


I think this is among the smartphones I would strongly recommend. It comes in only one color: BLACK! Get on today.
