Transsion brand Tecno has unveiled two more devices in the Tecno Camon 17 series, namely Tecno Camon 17 Pro and Tecno Camon 17P. These two handsets have landed in both Nigeria and Kenya simultaneously. Additionally, Nigeria also gets the Tecno Camon 17, which made its global debut in Kenya late last month.
Tecno Camon 17P / Camon 17 Pro Specifications and Features
The newly launched Tecno Camon 17P and Tecno Camon 17 Pro flaunt a 6.8-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels (FHD+), 395 PPI, 500 nits peak brightness, centered punch-hole, and 82% screen-to-body ratio. As an added bonus, the display of the Pro model also has a 90Hz refresh rate.
Further, the Camon 17P is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Whereas, the CAMON 17 Pro features a MediaTek Helio G95 chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
Talking about cameras, both the devices sport a vertically-aligned quad-camera setup on the back with quad-LED flash. The Camon 17P’s camera array includes a 64MP primary shooter, a 2MP macro snapper, a 2MP depth sensor, and an AI lens. On the other hand, the Camon 17 Pro’s camera setup consists of a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide unit, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP monochrome sensor.
As far as selfies and video calls are concerned, the former has a 16MP snapper as opposed to a 48MP shooter on the latter. However, both of them come with dual-LED flash on the front.
On the connectivity front, the duo supports dual-SIM, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Other features include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 3.5mm headphone jack, MicroSD card slot, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, and proximity sensor. The Camon 17 Pro also has stereo speakers.
Both of them are backed by a 5,000mAh battery and run HiOS 7.6 based on Android 11. But the Camon 17P only supports 18W charging instead of 25W fast charging like the Camon 17 Pro.
Last but not least, the Tecno Camon 17P measures 168.67 x 76.44 x 8.82mm in dimensions and comes in three colors (Frost Silver, Magnet Black, Spruce Green). Whereas, the Tecno Camon 17 Pro measures 168.89 x 76.98 x 8.95mm in dimensions and can be bought in two colors (Dream Silver, Malibu Blue).
