Tecno Camon C9 is Tecno mobile’s latest addition to the smartphone market and it comes with exciting features. When we got a chance to see how the phone works, i couldn’t wait to open up and experience the phone. As I held the phone in my hands, I could understand the hype that the phone received prior to its release. Coming with amazing designs and features, this phone proves just how much work Tecno has put into the Camon C9. Without further ado, let’s dig right into the details:
- HiOS 1.1.0
- Android V6.0 Marshmallow
- 5.5 ” HD IPS Touchscreen
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB internal expandable memory
- Dual Micro SIM with LTE connectivity capability
- 13MP Auto-Focus back camera with Flash
- 13MP Front camera with Flash
- 3,000mAh non-removable battery
The guys at the design section put in good shifts on this phone. Even though, like its predecessor, it retains a 5.5-inch screen, the phone comes with improved aesthetic qualities when compared to previous Tecno phones; while the C8 looks more flat and rectangular, the C9 is curved around the edges with a bevel structure at the back which distinguishes it from its predecessor.
With a screen resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, the Tecno Camon C9 boasts a Full High Definition (FHD) touchscreen display accompanied with the hiOS display which gives the Tecno Camon C9 a smooth and fluid user interface.
The Camon C9 comes with two cameras; one at the front and another at the back. The rear camera is a 13 megapixels camera and the front camera also has an amazing 13 megapixels which is a huge improvement on the Camon C8’s 5MP. The Camon C9’s front camera possesses a wide field of view. More so, the flashlight on the back of the C9 also looks better than that of the C8 as the seeming double flashlight beside the rear camera in Camon C8 now becomes one in Camon C9.

PERFORMANCE AND OS
The phone maintains the 16GB internal memory that we saw with the Camon C8 but it has an improved 2GB RAM memory in order to make its functionality fluid and also enable the device multitask which is something to be happy about, as you can run multiple applications without worrying about the phone hanging. It runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with an amazing and powerful 64-bit octa-core(8-cores of CPU per count) Mediatek MT6735 processor with a swift, lightning speed of 1.3GHz.
The Tecno Camon C9 has a 3.55mm headphone jack at the top and also a USB charging port is present at the bottom of the device
The Tecno Camon C9 has a dimension of 76.84 x 153.3 x 7.35
The Tecno Camon C9 features four buttons which are visible at the right side of the device, the first two buttons are the volume buttons which can be used to adjust the volume of the device when listening to music or making calls. The next button that comes just below the volume keys is the power button and the last key which is found at the bottom right of the device is the capture button for taking photographs. One stunning thing about the Tecno Camon C9 capture button is that when the capture button is held down, it can capture several shots of photograph which can be up to forty(40) pictures at a go
Another salient feature of the phone is the eye print scanner. It allows you to scan and save your eye prints, then later when your phone is locked, it can only be opened by you peering into the eye scanner. Sure it might take a while before you have a full grasp of how it works (I fidgeted with it a bit myself) but once you get it set up, it is a good security feature. However, the eyeprint scanner is programmed to allow you input the security code of the phone in case you are in a hurry or if you forgot your eye somewhere (Just kidding) . When we tested this feature at the office today, no other eyes could unlock the phone except mine (the saved eyeprint) and that’s pretty impressive if you ask me.
Camon C9 comes with a neatly sealed, built-in battery like the Camon C8 with a capacity of 3000mAh. The battery boasts an amazing 6hours 40minutes when the device is at optimum working ability in other words the device lasted for 6hours 40minutes when we increased the brightness and ran numerous applications on the device.
All in all, the Techno Camon C9 has lived up to most of the expectations that we had for it. however, the final decision lies with all of you. What do you think of the phone? Let us know in the comment section below.
