TECNO launching Camon 17 PRO soon

TECNO is introducing the Camon 17 PRO soon. The company in a press statement says the device will feature the clearest selfie camera, which is another breakthrough in their brilliant photography performance. The company promises that the Camon 17 PRO will not only have great performance but will also feature “breathtakingly sleek design with advanced technology”. The company says the device will also be a custom fit for young and active individuals.

During the online launch, TECNO will be talking about why the selfie-camera is important today. The company says that they will take time to showcase why they’ve gone all deep in to the selfie camera with a documentary titled, the “Rise of the Selfie“.

TECNO Selfie Documentary TECNO Camon 17 PRO

TECNO says the improvement in mobile phone camera technology indicates the increasing role that modern smartphones play in the development of our social psychology. A case in point, the company points out, is how the development of the TECNO CAMON 17 Pro was spurred by the demands of a selfie generation in the post-pandemic era.

This trend is also highlighted in Counterpoint Research, a well-regarded research organization, in its recent whitepaper released in April 2021. According to the whitepaper, consumer behavior and the smartphone usage scenarios changed drastically due to the social-distancing policies put in place to combat COVID-19, which has led more selfie demands, such as in home quarantine, to share life snippets with friends and in social media.

The Camon 17 PRO will join the Camon 17 version which is already in the Kenyan market, and available for Pre-order on Safaricom’s Masoko. We are not yet sure of the specifications of the PRO, however below you can find the specification
