The specifications of Tecno Camon C9 show that this device is a better replacement to its predecessor.

Overview Features

Display and Build

Tecno Camon C9 features a 5.5" FHD IPS touchscreen with a resolution of 1920*1080 pixels and pixel density of 267 PPI. Serving as a protection on this display is a corning gorilla glass 3 that offers enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility and  a better retained strength. A tougher screen is a good thing especially for those with butter fingers since this device can survive more falls, impacts, and hits before it cracks. Also on its display, on-screen navigation keys that were found on the Camon C8 have been replaced with capacitive soft keys.

The Camon C9's ultra slim body is made of metal with a leather textured back cover. It has a dimension of 153 x 76.4 x 10.35mm. This build makes it slimmer and lighter than the Camon C8, hence it is easier to hold, carry about and slide into a pocket. It comes in various colour options of champagne gold, sandstone black and pearl white, giving users an opportunity to choose between several colours. 

Like the Phantom 5, the Camon C9 has a fingerprint recognition sensor that is embedded below its rear camera. This fingerprint sensor is said to have a fast response time and false rejection rate that exceeds that of some high end devices, with little or no error margin. 

Processor, Hardware and OS

The Tecno Camon C9 is powered by a 64 bit MediaTek MT6592 Octa-core processor which splits the work between four-cores that will perform advanced work using more power and another four cores that will perform menial tasks that require less power. With this processor, more work can be done by the processor without draining the phone's battery at a faster pace. The processor, its processing speed and software have been designed in a way that will allow the Camon C9 deliver a high level of performance. 

The Camon C9 comes pre-installed with the latest Android version 6.0 Marshmallow and Tecno's User Interface, HiOS V1.0. Just like other smartphone brands which have a customized user Interface like the Samsungs's Touchwiz, HTC's Sense, and Huawei's Emotion UI, Tecno has not also left its own UI on Its latest device. This customized Interface is said to combine 1000 times functional optimization to provide an interactive and user-friendly experience. You get to customise your display screen, get a custom music player skin, freeze apps and regulate app data usage with this interface. 

Also, the Tecno Camon C9 has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory storage that can be expanded upto 128GB via microSD. Its large RAM is capable of supporting fast multitasking with little or no lags and hangs. Its Internal memory storage with provision made for expansion if need be, takes off the limitation to the number of apps, games, and multimedia users can store on this device. Users of this device can expect great multitasking, smooth 3D gameplay, and great camera performance from the Tecno Camon C9.


For its most exciting feature, the Tecno camon C9 features a 13MP front camera with flash light and a 13MP back camera with flash light. One will agree this is a unique feature in a phone since it features the same resolution on its front camera as its back camera. With dual flashlights, you no longer need to wait till its broad day light before taking pictures or making videos, as images with vivid quality can still be taken in low light conditions. By this time you should know what to expect from this bad guyhttp://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/highfive.png ; nothing less than Images and videos with good quality.

Also, the centralized location of these cameras on the Camon C9 allows images to maintain their original orientation, hence eliminating irregular object angles that are usually present in images captured by some smartphone devices. As another advantage, the location of its front camera enables users to take selfies while looking directly at the camera instead of appearing to be looking sideways or craning their necks too much in a bid to take selfies.

The front camera with its 83 degree viewing angle helps in adjusting the camera to take pictures, even capture upto 3 people at a time. Some features of these cameras that provides aided capability include smart human face Identification, face beautification and real-time makeup effect with eight natural makeup styles, and a visidon algorithm noise deduction technology, an algorithm for image noise reduction .

Battery and Connectivity

The battery capacity of Tecno Cammon C9 is 3000mAh. With Tecno's HiOS User Interface, not too large display screen and the phones's processor, this battery should be capable of ensuring the phone stays powered for hours. Connectivity options on this device include GPS, Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, 4G LTE connectivity and dual-SIM functionality.

Tech Lass's Verdict:

A user friendly interface, good gaming experience, and photo manipulation capabilities integrated into the Tecno Camon C9 to meet the requirement of the average smartphone user makes this device a must have. Currently, the most advanced option for processors is a 64-bit octa-core processor and a smartphone with a better processor like the Camon C9 is what anyone should go for. 

As the first smartphone designed by a Chinese Original Equipment Manufacturer with dual selfie camera, I do believe Tecno mobile must have incorporated the best features into its cameras to make this phone a legend for photography enthusiasts. Having held promises of being better than its predecessor in terms of its improved specs and still maintaining its budget friendly price, the Tecno Camon C9 is worthy to receive attention.http://emoticony.leestone.co.uk/emoticons_standard/smile-big.png
