Hey guys, welcome back. So, a few weeks back I talked about the Tecno Camon 11, if you haven’t read about it yet, you can do that by using this link.
The Camon 11 is a really good phone in a lot of aspects, but compared to the Camon 11 Pro, there are a few improvements that were made…and we are going to talk about them, so let’s dive in.
- Android 8.1 Oreo
- 6.2-inch Super FullView display in HD+ (1500 x 720 pixels) resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio
- 2.0GHz Octa-Core MediaTek MT6762
- 6GB RAM
- 64GB Internal Storage
- 24MP Front Camera and 16MP + 5MP Rear Camera
- 3750mAh non-removable battery
- Dual Sim
In terms of overall design, the Camon 11 Pro is quite similar to its sibling. The only difference here is the color. It comes in a Nebula Black color, a really nice glassy feel with a gradient look.
If you decided not to read about the Camon 11 (I know, too long, didn’t read), you should know that it comes in three colors (Bordeaux Red, Aqua Blue, Midnight Black).
Still on design, the Camon 11 Pro has a 6.2 inch screen size with 720 x 1500 pixels resolution.
Not a difference but good to know if you haven’t read about the Camon 11.
Clarity is not a problem on the Camon 11 Pro, colors appear sharp and usage under sunlight is still very impressive.
Looking at the front of the phone, it comes with a notch (just like the Camon 11) where the front facing camera with a LED flash is placed.
Possibly one of the reasons why this phone has a lot of positive reviews is the cameras. 24 Megapixels on the front is a plus compared to the Camon 11, which is 16 Megapixels (still a very good camera).
If you just love getting the best out of photos, the Camon 11 Pro should be for you. The LED flash is also there to improve pictures taken in the dark or low light conditions.
On the back of the phone, there’s also an improvement, the dual cameras have been boosted to an amazing 16 Megapixels + 5 Megapixels. The Quad-LED flash is also there for you when you need to improve brightness.
Compared to the Camon 11, the cameras have been boosted. The Camon 11 has a 13 Megapixel camera at the back.
You should note that these cameras are combined with Artificial Intelligence that helps to boost the quality of your pictures.
The finger print sensor is placed in the middle. A lot of us have enjoyed using finger print sensors on most phones, won’t be any different with the Camon 11 Pro.
Processor and Memory Storage
Still on improvements, compared to the Camon 11, the Camon 11 Pro has a 2.0GHz Octa-core Cortex A53 CPU combined with a MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 chipset.
That’s a lot of big terms for simple users. But well, the Camon 11 has a Quad-core CPU. It is good but compared to an Octa-core CPU, it means there’s four more cores on the CPU.
You get to run tasks smoother and faster on the Camon 11 Pro.
Talking about the RAM, 6GB of RAM on a phone is very impressive (can even be compared to a lot of computers). The bigger the RAM, the better it is for the phone to handle a lot of processes happening on it.
As I get to know more about this device, I feel like it’s more than just a “phone for pictures” but also a phone for heavy users and gamers as well.
The internal storage is 64GB which can also be seen as an improvement (since one of the Camon 11 variants has 32GB of internal storage).
Internal storage on both Camon 11 and 11 Pro can be expanded with an SD card with up to 128GB.
Almost forgot to mention that the Camon 11 Pro also runs on HiOS v4.1. An Android 8.1 (Oreo) customized Operating System.
Battery and Connectivity
For a phone with these improvements and specifications, you’d think they improved the battery. Well, I guess I saved the bad news for last.
No, the Camon 11 Pro has the same battery as the Camon 11. A 3750mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery.
Man, that’s a letdown. But considering all the other improvements, you still get a really good phone.
When it comes to connectivity, it supports dual SIM cards, 4G, 3G, 2G, microUSB 2.0 port, Bluetooth v5 (also an improvement compared to the v4.2 of the Camon 11), FM radio and face recognition.
You can get the phone at a starting price of N77,000.Jumia
Besides the battery letdown, the Camon 11 Pro is a pretty impressive phone. It should be super fast, give you really good pictures and a premium look for a phone.
It all comes down to personal preference though.
Light users won’t have to charge much, but heavy users will need to. But hey, it supports fast charging so that’s good.
So guys, that’s all. If you like this review please give it a “like”. Comment if you have questions or suggestions.
