Tecno Camon 12 Air brings back a forgotten memory, with an interesting display-O screen. The Camon series is not always got an ‘Air’ version. The first we saw was few years ago, when the company introduced the CX Air, alongside the Camon CX. Other Camon series since then had been without the ‘Air’ version except the just announced Camon 12-series, which is also the first time Tecno is launching 3 variants of it camon device Ina single launch event.
Now the most interesting part of the Camon 12 Air is the screen. The device does not only have a large 6.55-inch HD+ display, but came with a punch hole display, (Display-O) wherein the front facing camera is hidden. This means that the phone should have relatively compact body despite it large screen estate. The display uses IPS panel, with 720 x 1600 pixels resolution, and boast above 85% screen-to-body.
The device is available in two versions. The Asian version, powered by an Octa-core Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 CPU clocked at 2.0GHz, along with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, and the African version powered by a Quad-core Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 CPU at 2.0GHz with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, with PowerVR GE8320 GPU and storage expansion options on both sides
On the camera department, the Camon 12 Air packs triple sensors at the back, a combination of 16M + 5MP + 2MP sensors, while leaving the selfie duties to be handle by single 8-megapixel sensors, hidden in the hole upfront.
It also comes with a rear placed fingerprint scanner and support 4G LTE network on it dual card slots. Since this is a semi tablet, a 4000mAh battery is built in, to supply the device with current, while ensuring that users are not denied the latest Android 9.0 moniker, through Tecno’s own proprietary HiOS v5.5.
