You know the TECNO Camon series don’t you? First we had the TECNO Camon C5, then the C8 (which most of you have) and now coming soon is the TECNO Camon C9 which is taking selfies to the next level.

This is a camera focused phone. Like the TECNO Boom Series which focuses on music, this series is built specifically for cameras. Stop someone by the road who has a TECNO Camon and ask to see their camera. You’ll see that there’s something more done to better the camera experience.

The TECNO Camon C9 will launch before the end of June (and will be available on Jumia Kenya). And as I have said will pack some good cameras. The C9 resembles the TECNO Boom J8 in terms of back cover and design. And as such, will expectedly cost more. Many estimate price to be somewhere close to Ksh. 20,000.

But what do you get at that price?

  • 13MP Front camera!
  • 13MP back camera!
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HiOS (Or Android 5.1 with a future upgrade)
  • 2GB RAM (Some leaks say 1GB, Others say 3GB)
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 3000mAh battery (Some leaks say 5050mAh)

Yes the front camera is 13MP! I want to see what type of selfies this one will be taking. All you selfie-holics (that’s the name, right?) are obviously drooling.

The back looks like so:

The design ensures the phone is only about 7mm thin.

The colours will vary according to one’s preference. But so far I’m loving the sandstone black version which resembles my current Boom J8.

Here’s how the black front looks:

Here’s the black back:

The phone is beautiful, let’s agree on that.

When the phone launches I hope I will be among the first to give you a full review. I know you’ll want  a whole post on the cameras and how they perform. And you’ll also want an in-depth review of the phone’s general performance.

I do hope TECNO will solve all the HiOS mishaps before this phone launches.


There’s that now. Let’s wait for the phone. Tell me what you think!
