Tecno mobile has around 5 different smartphone categories targeted towards different sets of users. There’s the Phantom, Pouvoir series, Pop, Spark and the Camon, of course, targeted at lovers of quality photography.
Tecno Camon smartphones are known for their outstanding camera quality – their selfie camera quality, especially.
The Camon 17 is coming in as a direct successor to the Camon 16 released in 2020. The device features updates in major areas, including the display, processor, camera quality and other departments.
You should note that the Tecno Camon 17 in Nigeria comes in three variants: the regular Camon 17, the Camon 17p and the premium Camon 17 Pro. But for this post, we’ll be reviewing the specs and features of the regular Camon 17.
