The major differences between the two smartphones lie in their displays, random access memories, and battery capacities. The Camon 12 Pro is what we would recommend to anyone who can afford the product. This article would be examining the phone in details, so read on.

Design and Display

The design of the Tecno Camon 12 Pro is a quite impressive thing, and we expect that from a company like Tecno. This design is quite similar to that of the standard Tecno Camon 12, although, you can see a noticeable difference in their sizes. While the standard Camon 12 measures 166 x 75.8 x 8.2 mm (6.54 x 2.98 x 0.32 in), the Camon 12 Pro has a dimension of 158.6 x 75.5 x 7.8 mm (6.24 x 2.97 x 0.31 in). Another noticeable difference between the designs of these two devices is that the Camon 12 Pro does not have a fingerprint scanner on its rear side.

The major reason for the differences in the sizes of the two devices is their display. The standard version of the Camon 12 comes with a display of 6.52 inches, while the pro version of the phone comes with 6.35-inch display. But why would the pro version have a smaller display? Well, the Camon 10 Pro comes with an AMOLED display, unlike its counterpart which features an IPS LCD display. The resolution of the pro version is claimed to be 720 x 1600 pixels. In other words, it has a pixel density of about 276 PPI.

Computing Power

The same chipset that powers the Tecno Camon 12 is also the chipset that powers its counterpart. This chipset in question is the MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22, a 12 nm process chipset. Furthermore, the MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 is an octa-core chipset, and we have seen it in a good number of other cool Android smart devices. Playing games with a device that features this chipset, has never ended a disappointment. In other words, this item was built for heavy-duty computing tasks.

The MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 is not the only thing common to the Tecno Camon 12 and the Tecno Camon 12 Pro. Another thing common to both of them is their GPU. The GPU featured by both devices is the PowerVR 8320 graphics processing unit. The performance of this GPU is not a thing we can consider crappy, so you also have nothing to worry about in this aspect.

We stated earlier that one of the major differences between the Tecno Camon 12 and the Tecno Camon 12 Pro, is their RAM. While the standard version comes with 4 GB of RAM, the pro version comes with an even larger main memory. The main memory featured by the pro version is a 6 GB RAM. In other words, we can not imagine any type of Android smartphone user who would not find this adequate.

OS and Storage

Almost every cool smartphones released in 2019, come powered by the Android 9.0 operating system, and this is the same OS the Tecno Camon 12 Pro runs. However, the OS of this phone is not the stock Android 9.0 operating system — Tecno hardly puts stock Android in their devices. The custom Android the phone runs is known as the HiOS 5.5. Does the HiOS offer some performance boost? We strongly doubt it. Rather, we just think the modification is all about branding.

The Tecno Camon 12 Pro features just as much storage as the Tecno Camon 12. Both smartphones come with 64 GB of storage space. In this current age, a lot of users would have no cause to demand more storage, even though the OS and pre-installed apps take some of this storage space. But for people who would, for some reason or the other, need more storage, the Tecno Camon 12 Pro gives room for storage expansion. A micro SD card is all you need for storage space expansion.


Tecno Camons are generally known to have epic cameras, and the Tecno Camon 12 Pro would not prove that to be wrong. The device comes with a total of four cameras, but the selfie camera is what interests us the most. The selfie camera of the Camon 12 Pro is an highly-enhanced 32 MP camera. This camera is just so epic that we could not just stop taking pictures with it. The peripheral also promises to deliver 30 fps 1,080p videos.

While the Tecno Camon 12 Pro has a different front camera, compared to its standard version, their rear cameras remain the same. The main camera on the rear side of these devices is a 16 MP camera. This 16 MP camera has the support of a 2 MP camera and an 8 MP camera. They also enjoy the support of a bright LED flash.


4G support is not a problem you would have with the Tecno Camon 12 Pro. The smart device works well with the 4G networks available in the country. And when not interested in placing the device on 4G networks, you can always step down to 2G or 3G networks.

As expected of any smartphone, the Tecno Camon 12 Pro comes with support for the Wi-Fi technology. This technology helps ensure that you can connect to those high-speed networks. In addition to having support for Wi-Fi, the Camon 12 Pro is also a phone you can use as a mobile hotspot.

To exchange files between the Tecno Camon 12 Pro and other devices, you can use Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or its USB port. The Bluetooth supported by the phone is Bluetooth 5.0. And the USB port featured by this smartphone is a micro USB 2.0 port. We have a 3,500 mAh battery powering the smartphone.
