Design and Display
If you have seen the designs on the Tecno Camon 18 and 18 premiers, then you shouldn’t expect anything spectacular here, as they all share a similar design.
On the rear, we have what Tecno describes as a glossy mate splicing design, that combines a glossy and matte finish. This finish comes in three colours and they include Dusk Gray, Ceramic White, and Iris purple.
Sitting on the rear is an array of their cameras with an LED flash. You would also find the Tecno branding here, which helps indicate it’s a Tecno Smartphone.
Moving up front, we are greeted with a 6.8 IPS LCD display with a punch-hole camera in the middle, which happens to be similar to what is offered on the standard Camon 18. However, we have a higher refresh rate of 120Hz rate in lieu of 90Hz. Please note that the 18 premier also features a 120Hz refresh rate.
