In the ideal life, a completely perfect smartphone could be hard to find or probably easier at a high cost. But the TECNO Camon X pulls strings close to the imagination, and instills in you another feel of royalty from the press of the trigger.
Just a month old, and already a king in its league, this TECNO baby does not disappoint in its specifications, and the only other thing it would ask of you is to purchase it; Otherwise, what else?
Let’s take a keen look at the key features that the TECNO Camon X holds in it, and how best they operate.
18:9 Full Display + Less Bezels
The Camon X comes wrapped in a polycarbonate unibody design, with a 6-inch Full HD display in the modern 18:9 aspect ratio. With slim bezels, just like on the Camon CM, the screen is an IPS with 2.5D corning gorilla glass giving you a rather durable display.
The modern aspect ratio gives you an enticing experience while watching videos, capturing images, surfing the Internet, and multi-tasking. Besides, you get a larger screen to body ratio and the possibility to fit more information inside your phone screen with lesser bezels added to it.
In the line of multi-tasking, you could wish to have two apps open simultaneously, with the screen split and probably copy and paste between these open apps. An 18:9 screen will give you two perfect halves for each app in split screen mode; beyond imagination!
In addition to the fingerprint scanner and the traditional PIN/Password/Pattern security, the X comes with a very interesting feature. The facial recognition technology, also known as Face ID, requires you to just look at your device to unlock it, in seconds.
First seen on the iPhone X – and now making rounds on Android smartphones – Face ID typically does better than patterns, PINs, passwords, and fingerprints, because the chances of another person having your facial outlook is so minimal.
The beauty about this is that it works even in low light and total darkness. This is with the help of the front flash, an option that shows up once face ID fails at first instance.
