Have You Seen Tecno Mobile's New Device, The Camon C8?

In case you didn’t know, Tecno’s new lollipop device that was reported here is named the Tecno Camon C8 (I am guessing the Camon was gotten from Camera and On #JustThinking). Anywho, I have it from reliable sources that Tecno is going to offer the premium Camon C8 device to the Nigerian market at an affordable price.
So check out some first-hand look in case you haven’t seen it and tell me what you think.


Once you first get to see the Camon C8, the first thing that comes to mind is its physical build and dual flash. The device has been tagged a premium flagship device.

Asides the physical build,  There has been a lot of hype around the camera though the Tecno Camon C8 would come with a 13MP rear camera/auto-focus and a 5MP front camera with flash. However, rumor has it the Tecno Camon C8 is going to prove to you all that it’s not all about Megapixels.

Also, to make picture taking easy, the device would come with a shutter button by the side of the phone.

You can’t eat all your cake and have it, hence the reason why the Camon C8 will come with a 1GB RAM like  the Boom J7 and a 16GB storage.

With a 5.5-inch widescreen display, about the size of an iPhone 6 Plus, the view is impressive with vivid colours, soft touch response and definitely a HD screen.

According to my reliable source, the Tecno Camon C8 should be within the  N20, 000 price range.
With the camera hype, I can’t wait to do an unboxing and probably pair it against my Samsung NX300.  However, pending that time, I would like to hear your take on this. For the price tag, isn’t this a great bargain?

    For that price…not bad at all

    1. KENSHI says:

      The Camon C8 is a little too much Tecno has given to the world at an overly affordable price, in my opinion.

  2. optimusPRIME says:

    not bad at alll…..great specs

    1. JujuEars says:

      The video reviews I see though, It’s beautiful specs they have put together. Really cool.

    Not bad at all

    Your reliable source na wash sha, Assumptions yapa e.g
    With a 5.5-inch widescreen display, about the size of an iPhone 6 Plus, the view is impressive with vivid colours, soft touch response and definitely a HD screen.”
    Would it have been too much to install CPU-Z to get the actual specs of the device rather than assuming the screen should be HD and other such things, like say HD na one single resolution sef.

  5. SexyChiChi says:

    The specs are great.

    1. KENSHI says:

      You know this! The build and UI are a brilliant combination. I’m the most thrilled.

  6. BenKafor says:

    I am tempted to get this phone

  7. Chisome says:

    I will wait until it comes out before i start to judge

  8. JanethEze says:

    16 GB storage. Impressive

  9. KENSHI says:

    With this design specs I see, I think Tecno is doing the economy a favor. This is too beautiful for 20k. I, in fact, do not think Samsung or Sony would give this awesomeness for a penny less than a fortune.
    Nice blog too Miss Techy.

  10. Awesomecaye says:

    I do agree with you KENSHI; it’s way too cheap for that price, and this is the simple reason why their products always appeal to a lot of people cos they are seen as the ‘Samsung’ and ‘Sony’ phones that they can afford.

    1. KENSHI says:

      Exactly, you have spoken just the beauty my mind seeks to express.

  11. Samm says:

    Pretty solid specs, a RAM of 2gb woulda made it *FLAWLESS*…
    Hope I’m not asking for too much..

      Is it possible to upgrade d Ram to 2g. Pls explain

  12. JujuEars says:

    Aha! All people just became photographers.. The body looks study, fit for the job.

    1. SolaJ says:

      *Sturdy you mean? Yeah! The body looks like that of the Canon DSLRs. Rugged. I’ld call this a nice move.

      1. JujuEars says:

        You sha get the message

    Sam, the RAM is actually 2GB. I have a problem with your review Missy. Be careful with what words you use. What do you understand by the word “premium”? Something tells me you haven’t touched the device at all and o couldn’t be wrong.

    1. KENSHI says:

      I believe some of the specs are actually premium, especially the few advancement in the camera. It’s what you may not even get in premium phones. Yeah! I suspect the RAM is about 1.5GB too. Missy has handled the phone in a review and even taken pictures with it. Check the blog.

    Tecno doesn’t seem to learn their lessons huh?

  18. Janice. says:

    Until Tecno can do wat Infinix did with their latest Hot Note Pro, i can go for their phones again. The battery life of d Infinix hot note pro is amazingly awesome. Picture quality is gr8 and d memory, dats just d perfect finish. 2g rom, 32ig ram. Tecno still has to do better. And come to think of it, d phone isnt even available yet so all dis reviews re jst speculations

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Hi Silvia, apologies, I thought I replied, you will need to take your IMEI number to a Tecno Carl care center, there might be a chance that they can track its location.
