Available in three colour options (Aqua Blue, Midnight Black, and Bordeaux Red), the Camon 11 is just about the sleekiest Camon device Tecno has ever made. The device comes in an aspect ratio of 19:9 aspect ratio and visual thickness of 5.6mm.
Compared to its predecessors, the Tecno Camon 11 boasts of reduced (read: slim) bezels and a rectangular cutout at the top of the screen for more display real estate. This also makes the Camon 11 the first Tecno smartphone to sport a notch.
The physical keys (volume rockers and power/lock) are all on the upper right-hand side of the device while the 3.5mm headphone jack, and USB charging port are located at the bottom of the Camon C11.
The notch houses the selfie camera, earpiece and a couple of other sensors while the dual rear cameras are vertically aligned at the top corner on the back.
On the left-hand side of the Tecno Camon 11 is the tray that houses the dual SIM card and micro SD card. Overall, the Tecno Camon 11 is decently designed (the glossy coating is beautifully done) and a total beauty to behold.
The device’s frontal is largely occupied y the wide 6.2-inch Super FullView display with an impressive 87.5% screen-to-body ratio and 500nits brightness.
Again (as seen in attached images), there is a rectangular cut-out at the top of the display which positions the Camon 11 as the first Tecno-branded smartphone with a display notch.
The display is an LCD screen with an HD+ resolution (1500 x720 pixels resolution) for optimal image and colour reproduction.
On the Camon 11, TECNO uses the latest version of its native HiOS (v4.1) which comes with new features onboard: fingerprint call recording, smoother and redefined interface, system navigation gesture, launching apps using fingerprint, ability to uninstall system apps and many more. The HiOS 4.1 is, however, based on the Android 8.1 operating system.
The CPU powering the Camon 11 is a MediaTek MT6761 system-on-chip with four (quad) cores and clock speed of 1.5GHz. The device come in 2GB RAM and 3GB RAM option while internal storage options are 16GB and 32GB.
The camera specifications and features of this device are its major selling points. There is a dual camera setup on the rear which is made up of a primary 13-megapixels lens and secondary 2-megapixels sensor.
Below the sensors is device’s quad LED flash for lighting up subjects to be captured. On the Camon 11, TECNO mobile promises ultra clean image quality as it uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) coupled with 4-in-1 professional re-mosaic algorithm.
The front-facing 16MP camera also used this AI-powered technology to produce high-quality selfies. Some feature of the selfie camera include Night Scene, Portrait Bokeh mode, Automatic Scene Detection, Document mode, Sky mode, Backlighting mode, Sports mode, Night Portrait and more. Designed and made for selfie lovers, the Camon 11 is designed to impress.
The front-facing camera also supports Face ID for facial recognition biometric authentication and likewise AR Emoji. AR Emoji is Tecno’s version of Apple’s Animoji which uses to front camera to analyze human expressions through AR technology there creating a cartoon image of a user. These images can also be used when texting your friends on several instant messaging apps.
What’s a selfie-focused device with poor battery life? Fluke, I suppose. The Camon 11, however, doesn’t fall into such category as it comes with a 3,750mAh Lithium-Ion battery for long usage and (wait for it..) more power to take top-quality selfies!
