Differences between TECNO Camon 18, Camon 18P & Camon 18 Premier

TECNO has recently introduced the latest in its camera-focused series of smartphones. These are the Camon 18 Series of devices which include the Camon 18, the Camon 18P and the Camon 18 Premier. They’re all very different devices, but as you go up the series you get to notice a couple of similarities, and a couple of decisions that make each quite a good device to get.

The first major difference between the three devices is obviously with pricing:

  • Camon 18 Premier is set at KES 39,999 thanks to its gimbal camera, and its build.
  • Camon 18P is set at KES 27,699 and uses the same processor and RAM from the Premier
  • Camon 18 is set at KES 22,199 and uses a whole differnt processor, but keeps the camera and battery from the Camon 18P.

The Camon 18P on the other hand has a 48MP main camera, a 2MP depth camera, and a 13MP 50mm portrait camera specifically for sharp portrait photos.

The Camon 18 uses the same 48MP camera from the Camon 18P but has a 2MP depth and 2MP macro camera as the extra lenses.
