TECNO Camon 16 Premier now available for KES. 28,499 with free wireless earbuds

Update: Camon 16 Premier Unboxing


TECNO’s latest device is the Camon 16 Series. The company has just announced the new devices in an online launch. And though they’ve been very scanty with information shared even post launch, what we know is that there are three devices currently in the Camon 16 series. These include:

  • Camon 16 Premier
  • Camon 16 Pro
  • Camon 16

The Camon 16 Premier, which is the highest end of the three devices is already listed on Jumia Kenya for KES. 28,499. The link is down below for everyone interested.

For that amount, you are not only getting the device, you’re also getting TECNO’s first True Wireless Earbuds – the HiPods H2. Though the buds haven’t been priced officially locally, we estimated the price to be about KES. 2,800. Hopefully, they sound good enough for that price, we haven’t tested them.

What is important to know is that this price point gives us an idea of how the sister company Infinix will price the Zero 8 which is set to launch on 7th September. The devices appear to bear the exact same specifications – down to the same cameras, same refresh rate, same fast charging, same fingerprint placement. The only differences are in the design of the back cameras with Infinix going for a diamond design, and TECNO going for a boxy look.

The Camon 16 Pro and the Camon 16 will launch later on in the month, and will bear cheaper prices. But they will also have different specifications. Presumably lower refresh rate displays, and different processors.

Check the Camon 16 Premier out on Jumia.
