The TECNO Camon CX was launched in towards the end of March and it was a device that grew on us especially with its aluminum unibody design, more than decent photography prowess and attractive price tag.
A few months later, TECNO have released a limited edition of the Camon CX to celebrate the company’s partnership with Manchester City. If you live under a rock, TECNO is the official mobile partner of Europe’s Manchester City football club.
The Camon CX Manchester City Edition shares a lot with the standard CX aside from the attractive color, significantly more RAM and storage, Manchester City logo and consequently, a higher price tag.
