TECNO launches the Camon CX across various markets in Africa


TECNO Mobile, has launched the much anticipated Camon CX  across 41 markets in Africa, Middle East and Latin America, including in Kenya and Nigeria.

Introduced in 2015, the Camon series has sold over 5 million handsets globally giving the firm over 25 per cent of market share in Sub-Saharan African countries since 2014.

Sales in the African market reached 25 million devices in 2015, including 9 million smart phones. Globally, it sold 60 million devices last year while the sale of smart phones manufactured by the company increased by 40 per cent.

Nigeria, Tanzania, Egypt, Kenya and Cameroon are among the firm top markets in Africa.

TECNO Camon CX uses a smart image sensor composed of 16 mega pixel sensors in the front camera, coupled with unique ‘4 in 1’ technology.

Each pixel sensor detects light, captures individual images and converts the information into signals before forming the final image, resulting in selfies that are 30 per cent brighter, capturing special moments perfectly.

The phone’s dual-front flash feature allows Camon CX users to take amazing quality selfies in dark environments where previous artificial light would blur and distort images.

It also has a customised ring flash, light speed charge and a 5.5 inch FHD (Full High Definition) screen, all allowing for ease of use on the go as well as the best quality images.
