The TECNO Camon Camera Evolution
Over the years, we have witnessed the evolution of TECNO’s Camon camera. The latest being the TECNO Camon 12, which was released in September 2019. The first Camon smartphone was launched back in 2015 – the TECNO Camon C8. The selfie camera of the Camon C8 features a 5MP sensor, which was quite good at the time.
March 2017 saw the birth of the third Camon device – the Camon CX, which features a 16MP selfie camera alongside a quad-LED flash to help brighten photos in low-light conditions. The evolution will then take a step backwards in January 2018, as the then-new Camon CM comes with a 13MP front-facing camera. Don’t know if you know this quote – “minor setback for a major comeback”?
Just before the end of 2018, TECNO Mobile bounced back with the release of the Camon X and Camon X Pro. The Camon X packs a large 20MP selfie shooter while the Camon X Pro comes with an even larger 24MP selfie shooter.
From 2018 ending to 2019, the company launched the Camon 11 followed by the Camon 12 with dual and triple cameras at the back. It is suffice to say that we are now in the ERA of Multi-Smartphone cameras.
