Tecno Mobile recently introduced the latest Tecno smartphone series dubbed Tecno Camon 16. The new smartphone lineup includes Tecno Camon 16, Tecno Camon 16 Pro, and Tecno Camon 16 Premier. The Camon 16 and Camon 16 Pro are expected to be available for sale before the end of September, while the Camon 16 Premier with a massive 64MP quad rear shooter is already on sale in Kenya at the price of KES28,999 (about $275 USD) for the 8GB/128GB configuration.
Apart from the rear design, Tecno Camon 16 Premier comes with practically the same specs as the latest Infinix Zero 8. Although Infinix and Tecno are subsidiaries of Transsion Holdings, a Shenzhen-based smartphone manufacturer that focuses on sales at developing markets in Africa ( like Nigeria) and Southeast Asia, but the similarities in their latest smartphone designs and specs make one wonder why the devices are released with different price tags. For instance, if you have actually seen Tecno Spark 5 and Infinix Camon 15. The designs are practically the same with almost similar features. Infinix Hot 8, Tecno Spark 4, and Tecno Camon 12 also share the same design with different price tags.
That been said, below are the features and full specifications of Camon 16 premier.

Tecno Camon 16 Premier features a 6.9-inch Full HD+LCD display with a dual dot display notch housing the front-facing cameras. The screen has resolution 1080 x 24060 pixels with HDR10+ and 90Hz refresh rate. Also, the phone comes with a screen density of 374 ppi.
