Tecno Camon 11 Pro Full Specifications and Review: 24MP Beauty Camera. Notch Display, Octa Core
Ever since its creation in 2006, Chinese manufacturer TECNO Mobile has steadily won over the African mobile market. They initially began by producing GSM only dual sims and progressed to producing android phones with good value for money. The Camon 11 pro is no different as it continues to maintain its brilliance.
The Camon series is created with emphasises on the camera, and that trend doesn’t disappoint. AI-beauty is now the talk these days, so its no surprise the Camon 11 pro comes with a 24Mp front selfie camera equipped with this technology. It also features a 16MP rear main shooter together with a 5mp dept sensor camera. It runs on Tecno’s HiOS based on android 8.1 oreo powered by an octa-core processor.
A. MAIN SPECIFICATIONS AT A GLANCE
- 6.2 inch IPS Notch display, with HD+ Resolution of 720 x 1520p
- A MediaTek Helio P22 processor, an octa-core processor up to 2.0Ghz
- 6GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage
- 3750mAh non-removable Battery
- GPU is the PowerVR GE8320
- HiOS custom software based on Android Oreo (8.1)
- 24mp AI Selfie Camera and 16MP+5MP rear camera layout
The overall build of the Camon 11 Pro is classy. On the first view, you would be thrilled by this form factor. It is made of polycarbonate material, and that helps keep the weight at 158g. Dimensions are at 156.65 x 75.95 x 5.6mm. It also sports a capacitive always on rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Below the dual camera setup lies the flash sensor for enhanced night shots
The notch display has been trending and its no surprise Tecno has implemented it here. It’s a 6.2 HD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. This is 2019, so a FHD panel is what we would have come to expect. However, that’s what we get. There is also no word on the type of protection used and an 87.5% screen to body ratio. Overall screen to body ratio is 87%, and bezels are minimal.
As it is the case of all devices of the Camon Subseries, the Camon 11 pro is focused on photography. As a reminder, it is equipped with a 24MP selfie camera with AI-enabled features. There is an enhanced beauty mode, and HDR has been improved. The 16MP + 5MP dual rear camera ensures that the Camon 11 pro also take great shots since the 5mp camera acts as a depth sensor.
Tecno has a long history with MediaTek processors, and this one is no different. It is powered by the Helio P22 2.0Ghz octa-core processor (code name MT6762) based on the 12nm FinFET production process. The processor still has the Cortex A53 big-little setup. This should be capable of everyday task and casual gaming.
Onboard storage is 64GB which can be expanded by using an SD card up to 256Gb. This should be ok for selfie lovers. The ram is 6GB combined with a power VR GE8320 GPU which will handle all heavy apps and games.
The Camon 11 runs on HiOS 4.1, which is Tecno’s custom software based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Tecno has added AR Emoji, a feature which creates dynamic cartoon-like images by combining both human and visual expression. Honestly, android 9.0 pie was what we would have loved on board. But the custom UI should come with tons of other features to enhance the overall experience. All this combined with a 3750mAh battery should provide a good screen on time.
The Tecno 11 pro comes with dual sim support. 4G LTE can be enabled on both slots. WiFI is included with 2.4GHz range together with Bluetooth 5.0. The 3.5mm headphone jack is retained, and this is good news. Sadly, the phone still uses a micro USB. A type C port would have been better.
