The TECNO Camon 15 series of phones are here. We have been playing the normal 15, for which we penned an initial impression piece and a short camera overview.
Customers have been asking about the price of these optics-focused babies, and the official word from the company is here, alongside to where and how you can snag the devices.
For the moment, only the Camon 15 is available. The 15 Premier and the 15 Air will be brought into the country in the next two weeks, so sit tight and wait.
Now to the good news. The Camon 15 is available countrywide for KES 18000.
The smartphone can also be purchased from e-commerce platform Jumia, as well as XPARK with free delivery wherever you are.
As said, the Camon 15 Air and Camon 15 Premier will be sold locally at a later date. When that time comes, they will retail as follows:
TECNO Camon 15 Air: KES 16000
TECNO Camon 15 Premier: KES 27000
I know this is the first time we have seen TECNO sell a Camon device at more than KES 20000. In fact, that has always been Phantom territory, and this kind of pricing is making us speculate what plans the phone maker for its high-end offering, considering it has always sold its smartphones at a cheap.
TECNO has also partnered with comedians Eric Omondi and MCA Tricky who you will see in ad channels. You can buy the phones using Eric’s and MCA’s tricky Jumia links below:
If you choose to buy from XPARK, then you can use the following links as well.
Furthermore, you can use LIPA LATER & TECNO. For the first three months, the option charges you a 0% interest rate. The payment period is stretched to 12 months. If you are interested in the hire purchase system, then you can use this link to apply.
