Official Tecno Camon C9 Specifications, Images, Review, Price In Nigeria, Kenya, India

After so many rumors and leaked specs including images of "Tecno C9", the much-anticipated device has been officially unveil with flabbergasting features, one of the best in any Tecno smartphone especially the camera and other features which we are going to look into in this review.

Tecno Camon C9 is yet another camera-centric flagship device from Tecno mobile after the launch of its predecessors in the form of Tecno Camon C5 and Tecno Camon C8 which also came with nice camera capacities. But this Camon C9 is designed with even more advanced features with new slimmer metal frame body design, upgraded specifications over the Camon C8 smartphone , and improved RAM storage.


Display & OS
Tecno Camon C9 features a beautiful 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a touchscreen clarity balancing on a 720 x 1280p resolution and toppled with a clear Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top, serving as a shield against scratch on the screen.

The phone joins Tecno W4 in the league of prestigious android 6.0 mobile phones meaning that Camon C9 comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow straight from the box and another incredible feature to behold is the availability of Tecno’s UI – HiOS V10 which is the latest version of new Tecno User Interface.

Much has been said about Tecno always releasing phones with just 1GB or RAM but they have tackled it on the Camon C9 as it comes with 2GB RAM.
Also just under the cover, you will see a jerked up quad-core processor delivering a speed of up to at 1.5 GHz or 1.7 GHz.
Both the processor and the RAM contributes to make multitasking easier on Camon C9 than its predecessor (C5 and C8)

Just like Infinix Hot Note, Tecno C9 has 16GB of internal memory or you can simply called it on-board memory which can be expanded up to 128GB with a MicroSD card

Now to the main focus of this mobile phone. Like i said earlier, it is a camera centric device so Tecno mobile tried everything possible to churn out the best of camera features on this phone.
There is a jerked up LED flash camera that are embedded on both front and back sides of this device - giving you a sharper, clearer and quality snapshots even in low light environments. With its 13MP rear camera, photos and video recording gets better with Camon C9. Now can you believe that the "front camera is also 13MP?" that's amazing and it ranked the phone among the top best smartphones in the world for selfie snaps.

You will agree with me that fingerprint is one of the trending features in new smartphones at the moment at it wouldn't be nice if it is missing here so Tecno did well to include fingerprints sensor here for optimal security of your phone.
Another new and great feature on Camon C9 is the iris scanner which is the first of its kind in any Tecno phone.

Network & Connectivity
Camon C9 comes with 4G LTE network support including the popular 3G, 2G, WiFi and GPS network connectivity. So it should support new broad brands that are launches 4G networks like Ntel 4G LTE

Before this official report, many online platforms has released rumors of different battery specs of this phone but the truth is that the official battery capacity of Tecno Camon C9 is 3000mAh which is not bad especially when it powers android Marshmallow with battery saving technology.
