Where to Buy Tecno Camon C9
Design and Display
The Android smartphone features a different design from its forerunner. The physical buttons have now all been moved to the right side.
Tecno Camon C9 still has a 5.5-inch IPS Display, but it now packs more pixels with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution for a better viewing experience. The C8 had only 720 x 1280 pixels, so this should be a decent improvement.
Camera and Storage
The C8 was built with photography enthusiasts in mind and the Tecno Camon C9 is carrying on with the legacy. On the back the camera still says 13 megapixels, but do not mistake it as the same camera as the C8.
