The Tecno Camon C9 in Kenya – Here is what you need to know

Tecno C9

Tecno has today officially launched the Camon C9 smartphone in Kenya. The Camon C9 takes over from the Camon C8 and C5 smartphones that were launched in the country last year. The Camon C9 comes into the market about three months after the company unveiled The Boom J8, a smartphone for music lovers.


The Tecno Camon C9 is available for Ksh 17,999 in most retail stores in Kenya. To put things in perspective, we will be looking at a few things about this smartphone that you may want to know.


As mentioned above, the Tecno Camon C9 is available in most retail stores around the country. Expect the price to be slightly lower if you buy the phone from online stores. The phone is still not available online so you may have to wait a few more days if you don’t want to buy it offline.

Camera-centric smartphone

Tecno Camon C9 Camera

The Tecno Camon C9 is an all-round camera-centric smartphone. It has a 13MP main camera and a 13M front facing one. I spent a few minutes with the Camon C9 and I can tell you that the 13MP front facing camera takes some very good photos, this is impressive if you consider the 18k price tag. The back camera also takes some good photos but the front facing one is impressive because we didn’t expect it. We just don’t see 13MP selfies cameras every day. The first thing that you will probably notice when you pick up this phone is its front facing camera

Not a small phone

The Tecno Camon C9 isn’t a small phone. It has a 5.5 inch display which is neither too small nor too big. 5.5 inch displays are considered the perfect sizes but they can see a bit big if you are used to 5.2 inch displays.

The Tecno Camon C9 is available in Champagne Gold, Elegant Blue and Sandstone Black.  My favorite so far is the Sandstone Black one as it looks and feels good when holding it.

Notable specs

Some of the notable specs of the Camon C9 include:

Display Size: 5.5 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels

Processor: 1.3 GHz Octa-core processor (64 bit)


Storage Space: 16 GB, can be expanded using a microSD card

Android Version: Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HiOS v1.0 ontop

Camera: 13 MP at the back and a 1.3MP front facing one. Both cameras come with LED flash

Battery: 3000 mAh removable battery

Tecno T-Band

Besides the Camon C9, Tecno has also launched its first smart band, the T-Band. This smart band is available for Ksh 3,500, a very affordable price if you ask me.
