Tecno has never disappointed when it came to keeping up with the trends let alone pushing the boundaries with their lines of smartphones like the Phantom, the Boom and the Camon series among others. This makes the anticipated release of the Tecno Camon CM quite interesting

Launch Date in Uganda

Attempts to confirm a launch date from Tecno Uganda are yet to yield fruit but this blog has been assured that this device will launch in Uganda in the first quarter of 2018 at the latest.

Tecno Camon CM specs

As for the specs, and from the leaked images, the Tecno CM is rumored to feature a 5.7″ 720p Full Display, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The CM also features a 13MP front and rear camera, a MediaTek MT6737 and a quad-core processor. The fingerprint scanner, a 3000 mAh battery,  Android 7.0 and HiOS all come baked in.

I hoped that the Tecno Camon CM would at least have 32GB of memory as 16 is no longer enough for an average user. This is because the 16GB is shared with apps and the operating system leaving only about 10GB usable.

Tecno Camon CM Price and Availability

In Kenya, the Camon CM is already available through online retailer Jumia and is reported to hit the stores soon. In Uganda, the device is yet to be made available. Dignited  have confirmed from Tecno that the device will hit the Ugandan market this first quarter.

Multiple dealerships are already touting promotional materials about the Tecno Camon CM. Looking at the anticipated price in Nigeria and Kenya, the Camon CM may go for between Ugx 500,000 – 600,000.
