On the 5th of April 2018. Tecno Mobile officially announced the Tecno Camon X and 4 other smartphones in a global launch held in Lagos Nigeria.

Even though not a continuation of the Camon CX, the Tecno Camon X is still the latest addition into the Tecno Camon family.

Let us look inside the box of a Camon X.

Inside the box, there is a unit of the Camon X cradled atop a box containing the other accessories.

Physical features

The power button, volume rockers and SIM tray are on the right side of the Tecno Camon X

This has ensured there is no button or feature on the left side of the phone.

SIM tray has two slots for Nano SIM cards and an extra for a memory card

The Camon X's speaker grilles, USB port, microphone and earphone jack are all lined up in this order underneath. tecno camon x 77 of 143

Rumours say ₦58,900, but there is no official price as it is not yet on sale. Our price projections for the Tecno Camon X is somewhere between ₦60,000 to ₦70,000. Until it is available, buyers can however pre-order it on Slot for ₦2,000.

First impressions

There is surely a lot of hype around the Tecno Camon X and from what I see, it is not disappointing on many physical ends.

I liked holding the phone; it felt right to touch. The sleek lightweight design and marvelous cameras Tecno promised us are any smartphone user's dream.

But a few days of review will reveal how well these stacked specs play out in real world use cases. Until then, the Tecno Camon X looks like an excitingly good deal from what I see.
