Tecno Camon C8 is not a new device. You probably expected a C9 which is on the way coming. Just this year we should expect a Camon C9, that will of course be better than the Camon C8. Tecno Camon C8 has received so much attention that has included the selfie centric device receiving updates up to including the latest HiOS user interface. Camon C8 however, it is not a 4G device and this somehow demeans it but it still stands out better than the Camon C5 which was the first 4G smartphone by Tecno Mobile.

I am not of the thought that Camon C5 didn’t hit. It did its best job starting the Camon series (C-Series) which saw the birth of the Camon C8. Camon C8 does not only feature great photographic features (cameras)  but also it features wonderful specifications. The technical specifications of the Tecno Camon C8 surpasses even those of the Tecno Phantom 5 last year’s flagship because of the HiOS update it just recieved both via OTA and also OTG via the flash tool.

Camon C8 Display

It is an elegant device with a 5.5 inch display showing up to 16M colors that will display every color in right codes. The display is an LCD touchscreen that features IPS (Inplane Switching) technology for improved sensitivity. With a pixel density of 267ppi every pixel is accounted for. You get high picture quality with HD experience. The screen is a 720HD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Even though this might not be the best in 2016 (this year) it still stands out tall.

The display is wonderful for both gaming and video playing as a result almost any game can be handled by Tecno Camon C8. Tecno Camon C8 is thick enough (slim) to fit in your hand/palm including your pocket. So you won’t need a handbag to walk around with it.

Camon C8 Memory

Camon C8 like I said it can handle any game. This is possible thanks to its able 16GB ROM (internal storage). The Camon C8 also features a MicroSD card slot that can take up to 32GB of secondary storage. This is to supplement the inbuilt storage.

One other important thing that makes Camon C8 a cool phone is that it features a 1GB RAM. This is the primary memory of the Tecno Camon C8 whose primary work is to streamline overall performance. An instruction handler will always ensure every task is executed at its own time. No lagging can be experienced on this phone even when playing some heavy games like FIFA by EA SPORTS.

  1. […] Camon C8 was a selfie centric device and this is due to the cameras this device had in place. With dual LED flashlight at the back, the Tecno Camon C8 carried the day with only 5 megapixels selfie camera. And well it was the selfie centric phone. If the Camon C8 was selfie centric, then I wonder what name we should give the Camon C9 because this phone is well above the selfie centric thing. It is much more above the Tecno Camon C8 in almost every specification there is. The cameras of the latest Tecno Camon C9 are far above just being selfie camera taking photography to a whole new level. […]
