Things we know about the TECNO Camon X and 4 other phones announced yesterday

During its Global Spring Launch event held in Lagos, Nigeria yesterday, TECNO Mobile announced five new smartphones — The TECNO Camon X, TECNO Camon XPro, TECNO F1, TECNO F2 and TECNO POP1.

Here’s what we know so far about them.

TECNO Camon X and XPro: All about the selfie game

Not to be confused with the Camon CX series, the new TECNO Camon X series was obviously built with selfie addicts in mind. I mean, why else would anyone put a 24 megapixel front camera on a smartphone?

According to Philex Meng, Chief Marketing Officer TECNO Mobile, it goes even beyond the megapixels.

Yet to be announced

TECNO F series: Go-power!

TECNO also announced the F series — TECNO F1, TECNO F2 and TECNO POP(aka F3) — as their new entry level models, which leverage the Android Oreo (Go edition).

The Android Oreo (Go edition) was developed specifically for entry-level smartphones and comes pre-installed with stripped down, ‘offline-first’ versions of popular Google apps such as YouTube Go, Gmail Go and other “Gos”.

Needless to say, the F series is targeted primarily at first-timers so, don’t expect all the bells and whistles of a mid to high end smartphone.
