TECNO Mobile, a TRANSSION Holdings’ subsidiary has launched another version of the camera-centric CAMON series. The new triple rear camera CAMON device dubbed has been called the TECNO CAMON i4 in India.
The TECNO CAMON i4 comes with a 13MP main shooter with F1.8, an 8MP ultra-wide angle lens with 120 degrees view for capturing wide frames and landscape pics and a 2MP live focus lens that captures details for better portraits. On the selfie side of things, the TECNO CAMON i4 is equipped with an artificially intelligent 16MP selfie camera.
The device sports a 6.2-inch HD+ display with a screen resolution of 1500 x 720 pixels, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and 88.6 % screen to body ratio. A 64-bit MediaTek Helio A22 quad-core processor clocked at 2GHz runs the show.
Android 9 Pie is fueled by a 3,500mAh battery.
The TECNO CAMON i4 is the first TECNO smartphone to come with a ‘dot notch’. All other TECNO devices have been using the iPhone X style notch which has been criticized for encroaching on the display. This uses the same design language that was introduced by the TECNO CAMON 11 and the CAMON 11 Pro.
