Tecno is set to launch the Camon C9 in Kenya later this week. This phone will take over from the Camon C8 which was launched sometime last year. I do not have official figures from Tecno but sources inside the company have told me that the C8 did very well.
The Tecno Camon C9’s price in Kenya will be Ksh 18,000. This is the offline recommended price and you may get the phone for slightly higher or lower depending on where you buy it. when buying it through online channels, the price will be definitely be lower that this so I suggest you go with that option. The main selling point of the Camon C9 is its 13MP front facing camera with LED flash.
Below is a look at the specs and features you can find on the Camon C9.

Design and Display
The first thing you will notice about the Camon C9’s design is that it borrows a lot from Tecno Boom J8. The design looks good and the sandstone back cover gives it a premium feel. Since this phone has a 5.5 inch display, it really feels big when holding with one hand but you get used to size very fast.
As for the display, it is a 5.5 inch one with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, this gives a pixel density of 401 ppi.

The Tecno Camon C9 comes with a 1.3 GHz Octa-core Mediatek MT6753 (64 bit) processor paired with 2GB of RAM and Mali T-720 GPU. Storage space is 16GB but the good thing is that this can be expanded up to 128GB using a MicroSD card. For the short period I spent with this phone, performance was quite good but did not blow my mind.
The one thing you will probably like about the Tecno Camon C9 is its cameras. It has a 13MP unit with LED flash at the back and front. This is quite impressive especially the 13MP selfie one. The back camera takes some good photos but I noticed that it tries so hard to process them and this is not good in low light conditions. The front facing camera on the other hand is very impressive, takes some good shots in any lighting condition.
Tecno has included a 3000 mAh battery on the Camon C9. This battery is non removable even though the back cover can be removed. For me this battery is enough for almost anyone as it can last you through the whole day without any issues.
Note: This is not a review of the Camon C9, it is just a post listing its specs. We will have its full review very soon.
