For some reason we do not understand, the prices of a lot of smartphones have dropped, and we feel now is the time, for anyone who has been planing on getting a new phone. But knowing that many people would not know what products would be great for them, we decided to write about smart phones we think are worthwhile of taking into consideration, and the Tecno Camon 11 happens to be one of them. The Tecno Camon 11 is a product released in September of 2018, and we still consider it a product that deserves being a part of this article.
Appearance and Display
The appearance of the Tecno Camon 11 is one of the greatest selling point of the phone. This device has got a pretty cool design, and we doubt you would be able to resist it. The device was released in November 2018, but it still ranks as one of Tecno most lovely phones. With this product available in bordeaux red, aqua blue, and midnight black, colour should not be a problem for anyone. We find the Camon 11 to be a product that measures 156.5 x 76 x 5.6 mm (6.16 x 2.99 x 0.22 inch).
In the aspect of display, we would like to give the Tecno Camon 11 a 4-star rating. The display of the phone is an in-plane liquid crystal display which measures about 6.20 inches. We found this 6.20-inch display to have a resolution of 720 x 1,500 pixels, leaving the smartphone with a pixel density of about 268 pixels. Also, the display causes the phone to have a screen-to-body ratio of about 81.3 percent. As regards the protection of the phone LCD, it has the protection of a NEG display protector.
Not all builds of the Tecno Camon 11 are powered by the same set of chipset and GPUs. A build of the phone can either come powered by the MediaTek MT6739 chipset or the MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22 chipset. The MediaTek MT6739 is a 28 nm chipset which has got a total of four cores, and each of these item’s four cores can be clocked at 1.50 GHz. For anyone who is not necessarily interested in playing heavy games with their phone, the MediaTek MT6739 is good enough to serve them excellently.
Just like the MediaTek MT6739, the MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22 is also a quad-core chipset, but this is a 12 nm chipset. In addition, it cores can be clocked at 2.00 GHz, not the 1.50 GHz of the MediaTek MT6739. Also, while the MediaTek MT6739 has got the support of the PowerVR GE8100 GPU, the MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22 has got the support of the PowerVR GE8320 GPU.
Builds of the Tecno Camon C11 can also come with RAM of different capacities. We have builds of the smartphone which operate with 3 GB of RAM. We have also have builds of the device that come with 4 GB RAM. While a 3 GB RAM build would be enough for most people, we would have people who need a build having 4 GB of RAM.
OS and Storage
Just like almost every other Tecno smart phone, the Tecno Camon C11 is a device running the HiOS operating system. A lot of people might have never heard of this OS, but we are pretty sure many have seen this OS, as it is the OS powering almost all Tecno devices. The version of the HiOS Camon 11 runs, is based on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system.
Builds may not only differ in the aspect of chipset, GPU, and RAM, another aspect in which they may differ, is the aspect of storage. There are two possible storage size a Tecno Camon 11 may have, with the first one being 32 GB and the second one being 64 GB. While the 32 GB of storage would be adequate for some people, we would have so many other people who would find this quite inadequate. For such people, they can get a 64 GB build. However, if a user of any of these builds requires additional storage space, a micro SD card not more than 128 GB can be inserted into the device.
There are a total of three cameras featured by the Tecno Camon 11. We have one selfie camera and two rear cameras. The selfie camera is a 16 MP camera which is pretty enhanced. We have taken pictures with this peripheral, and we can confidently state that you would not be disappointed by the quality of this peripheral. The rear side of the Camon 11, comes with a 2 MP camera and a 13 MP camera. Just as you have probably assumed, this 2 MP camera is only supporting the 13 MP camera.
Phones in the Tecno Camon series are generally known to be dual SIM smart devices, so is the Tecno Camon 11. The Tecno Camon 11 has got two sim slots which can take nano SIM cards. The two SIM cards inserted into the phone can furthermore be placed on 4G networks.
The Camon 11 has got every connectivity technologies you would expect from a product of its kind. The device comes with support for the Wi-Fi technology, and it can also be used as a mobile hotspot. Bluetooth support is also not a thing this device lacks. But being a little elaborate, the device has got the support of the Bluetooth 4.2 technology.
We have a 3,750 mAh battery powering the Tecno Camon C11, and we think that is really cool. With such a powerful battery, a single charge should last the user a full day. Also, the phone comes with a rapid charge technology, making it possible for the device to be fully charged under 2 hours.
