TECNO Camon 12 launching soon with a punch-hole display

TECNO Mobile has begun teasing the TECNO Camon 12 Series. From the shared image above, we should expect a Camon 12 and a Camon 12 Air. This is unlike with the Camon 11 series where we got a Camon 11 and a Camon 11 Pro.

The Camon 12 Air from the image looks like a very compelling device. The screen-to-body ratio looks to be over 90%, and as you can see there’s a punch-hole display which TECNO will be calling DOT-IN DISPLAY for some reason.

Being a 6.55 inch display, this will be a big phone, but with the greatly reduced bezels, it will be manageable. Hopefully, TECNO goes with a great display that’s FULL HD, and not 720p. To really be immersive, such a design demands a good display. However, leaks suggest a 720p panel, let’s wait and see.

What I already love about this phone is that it will be a better pick-up for me than TECNO’s latest Phantom 9. Which is funny as the Phantom 9 is meant to be the company’s flagship.

A press release “leak” states that the phone should launch on September 5th. That’s two days away.
