Tecno Camon 16 Premier
Design and Display
Taking a glance at the image of the Tecno Camon 16 Premier, the words that come to mind is “The difference is clear”. Tecno made efforts in the redesign, which will appeal to enthusiasts who weren’t totally satisfied with the design of its predecessor.
Speaking of things Tecno laid to waste, the Tecno also ditched the motorized pop-up selfie camera we saw on the Camon 15 premier and opted for a camera cut-out on the display instead.
Speaking on display, the Tecno Camon 16 Premier features a 6.9-inch IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2460 Pixels, a density of 374 PPI.
The hallmark of the display numbers is its 90Hz refresh rate, which promises smoother deployment of UI elements.
Color options are a bit restricted on this smartphone, enthusiasts will have to settle for just one color, as it comes only in Glacier silver.
The camera department on smartphones from the Tecno Camon series is undoubtedly the most anticipated feature, due to the impressions we got from previous Tecno Camon smartphones.
The Tecno Camon 16 Premier features a quad rear camera setup on the rear that comprises of a 64MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.9, an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.3, a 2MP dedicated video camera with an aperture of f/2.4, and a 2MP depth camera.
This camera combo is capable of shooting videos capped at [email protected] It also offers video records at [email protected] and [email protected]
List Building Program
Selfies are manned by a dual front camera setup, which is the first of its kind in the Tecno Camon series. This dual-camera setup comprises of a 48MP primary camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.2.
This setup is capable of recording videos capped at 1080p @ 30fps. It is also supported by an LED flash system for brighter results.
Hardware and Software
The Tecno Camon 16 Premier doesn’t just shine as Tecno’s top of the line camera smartphone, but also the most powerful smartphone Tecno has ever created, a true mid-range, something that sounds a bit odd due to the fact that it’s not coming from the phantom series.
The Tecno Camon 16 Premier features a USB Type-c port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and a dual-band WiFi system.
The Internet connection here is capped at 4G, which means enthusiasts won’t get the luxury of 5G speeds.
