TECNO has just announced the new camera-centric Camon 20 series which will come in four versions for our market. And unlike the previous lineup, the Camon 20 packs heavy when it comes to specs, and it’s pretty impressive that the midrange lineup can go toe-to-toe with fellow rivals.
TECNO used their just-released new Magic Skin for their rear panels for the Camon 20 series. We get lychee-pattern leather for the back and nano-crystalline ceramic for the camera island. The back design implements 20 irregular ribs for the back pattern.
It’s worth noting that they all sport IP53 dust and splashproof resistance rating.
Camon 20 Premier 5G
Camon 20 Premier leads the lineup with a 6.67″ AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate. This display is the same across the rest of the series.
It comes with 8GB onboard RAM and 8GB virtual RAM paired with 256GB storage. This configuration is shared across the lineup. We also get HiOS 13 and Android 13 straight out of the box.
The whole series shares the same 32MP selfie camera.
The Camon 20 Premier has a triple camera setup with a leading 50MP RGBW Pro primary lens with sensor-shift OIS and support for ultra-Steady video, a 108MP ultrawide with autofocus and macro capabilities, and a 2MP depth sensor. The camera island has Laser focus and an octa-ring LED flash.
Powering the phone is a new Dimensity 8050 5G processor(It’s a rebadged Dimensity 1300) that also powers the Camon 20 Pro 5G.
Another similar thing is that the two have an under-display fingerprint reader.
It ships with a 5000mAh battery that supports 45W fast charging.
The Camon 20 Premier comes in Serenity Blue and Dark Welkin.
Camon 20 Pro 5G
The Camon 20 Pro 5G has a 64MP main with OIS, a 2MP depth, and 2MP macro. The other base Camon 20 and Camon 20 Pro(4G)have a QVGA camera alongside the 2MP macro.
The base Camon 20 and Camon 20 Pro will have Helio G99 and Helio G85 chipsets respectively.
They have 5000mAh batteries with support for 33W fast Type-C charging.
Camon 20 comes in Glacier Glow, Predawn Black, and Serenity Blue.
The series is up for preorder from 9th to 17th May by depositing Ksh 5000 at any official TECNO shop countrywide.
The official launch will be on the 17th.
