Tecno Camon C9; A budget friendly phone with wowing specifications. Find out.

Selfie photography is now live thanks to the latest Tecno Mobile one of the Camon Series. Tecno Mobile has scheduled the release of the Tecno Camon C9 in this month of June and believe me this phone is a wonderful gadget. Forget the innovative design and look that we saw on the Tecno Boom J8, the Tecno Camon C9 surpasses all that. Tecno Camon C9 is indeed an innovatively designed and modelled phone using the latest technologies there is in the market. The upcoming Tecno Mobile smartphone is going to revolutionize the way we take photos and also giving an excellent preview and clear captured shots. The cameras of this wonderful device don’t just sit within a 7mm body. They have a reason as to why they are there. The Camon C9 is coming in to bring a new kid on the the Camon Series and somehow tell Camon C8 that well, it is old now, almost a year.

Tecno C9

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.

Quick Glance at the Specs of the Tecno Camon C9

  • 5-inch HD display screen
  • Multi touch: Yes
  • 5-point capacitive touchscreen
  • Up to 16M colors
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HiOS
  • 64-bit Octa-core processor at 1.5GHz
  • MediaTek chipset hopefully an MT6753 chipset
  • DUAL camera system
  • Primary; 13MP and front 13MP both with LED flashlight
  • 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM a microSD slot up to 128GB
  • 4G/LTE connectivity support
  • 3000mAh+


From what we should expect the device is believed to be equipped with two very able 13 megapixels cameras. The front shooter and the primary camera have similar specifications. This keenly means that this device will take very clear, high quality pictures whose resolution is good enough to be clear every after print on large papers.

From what I saw on the Tecno Boom J8, Tecno Mobile have improved both design and the way their devices look look. The Camon C8 was majorly metallic whereas the Tecno Boom J8 was completely plastic with metallic trimmings that would actually make the look great. It is not yet clear if we’ll see a Tecno Camon C9 that is built with a plastic body plus some metal trimmings at the edge. I hope the Camon C9 will be bringing in store some premium design what each one will actually fall in love.

What to Expect on Tecno Camon C9.

Tecno Mobile haven’t released a phone beyond 5.5-inch display screen like Infinix did with the Infinix X600. We should not expect that on C9. However, what am hopeful about is that the Camon C9 is it will have a 5.5 inch display with some good display specifications like 1080p resolutions maybe upto 441ppi (pixel density) and a FHD display. Also screen protection is important, we only saw the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on Tecno Phantom 5, so should we expect it on Tecno Camon C9? That is a question that will be answered once clear specifications of the device are clearer.

The device from what we have seen with Tecno W4, Tecno W3, Tecno Camon C9 might come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with the HiOS icing on top of it. Even if it comes with the Lollipop we know an update won’t be really long before it comes to bring in the Marshmallow. Since we saw the Tecno Camon C8 receive updates from Lollipop, HiOS Beta, HiOS 1.0, Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HiOS we should expect a C9 running on Marshmallow.

Cameras are one of the main things people focus on nowadays. Good camera specifications will always get a phone selling plus some juice in battery and processor plus primary memory. All these are catered for in Tecno C9.

Tecno Camon C9 is the device and first ever to be released by Tecno Mobile that has both the front/selfie shooter and the primary camera having similar specifications. The selfie camera on the Tecno C9 is centrally placed allowing you to take high print quality HD pictures with the selfie camera on this device. It of course features a front LED flashlight just like we saw in Boom J8. This is the trend to make night vision or low light photography enhanced.

Tecno C9 has Visidon Algorithm Brightness that produces 50% brighter images than average. Visidon Algorithm Noise Deduction clears up to 75% of the ‘noise’ in the background, leaving you with a crisp photo. The back camera also comes 13MP camera and Dual LED Flash (two flash lights).

Tecno Camon C9 promises clear and better quality pictures even in the dark with the powerful cameras which are 13.0 megapixels cameras.

The Back Camera; Tecno Camon C9

When it comes to storage we kind of covered. With 16GB storage we think Tecno Camon C9 will be in place to provide enough memory to store your pictures that you shoot around with this mid-range smartphone due to its price. Tecno C9 additionally has one good thing an SD card support that will allow you to up your storage with additional 128GB. If we get a 2GB RAM, device only Phantom 5 will be above this phone when it comes to RAM, multitasking will be efficient, quick app changeover, lagging is dead on this phone, meaning there’s no time ever you will find a smartphone with 2GB RAM lagging in performance, no with what I have experienced.

We have seen a couple of good Tecno Mobile phones that are good in specs and battery power having inbuilt batteries. The C9 is no different. The Tecno Camon C9 additionally has a good lithium ion battery with about 3000mAh that can offer quite an extended time.

The Tecno Camon C9 might just cost somewhere around Ksh. 20,000 upon launch this month. The details about the phone are a bit sketchy and you should only know of that. Everything else will follow suit whenever we get our hands on it.
