Known for its affordable yet quality array of user-friendly smartphones, Tecno yet again launches the Camon 12 series which is made up of the Camon 12, Camon 12 Pro and the Camon Air.

The reputed camera-centric smartphones are expected to leverage the selfie features of the Camon 11, but with an upgrade which sets a trend in the world of smartphone photography.

Embedded with an upgraded camera for any angle photography Camon 12 series will create a buzz because of the series of smartphones suitable for social media enthusiasts and influencers who enjoy life by taking and sharing photos.

As we’ve seen on the Tecno phantom 9, Camon 12 series is expected to follow suit with AI max triple camera enabling you to capture photons as well as super wide-angle photography giving you clear selfies as well as beauty as you see it around you.

One thing is for sure. The Camon 12 series packs a higher edge to edge ratio more than the 87.5% frame of the Camon 11. This means an extreme frame that gives the user immersive display as well as ample screen estate for maximum viewership.

Camon 12 pro launches this week giving you AI technology, aesthetics and a revolutionary camera all at an affordable price range.

Now under the Camon 12 series, we also have the Camon Air which comes donning a 90% edge to edge ratio and revolutionary dot-in display technology as only seen on the Samsung S10. Samsung will obviously be at a higher price which makes Camon 12 Air the perfect option, for someone looking to keep up with the latest technology in the smartphone world but still not breaks the bank while they’re at it.
