Well, the news of an impending Tecno Camon CX (or C10) hit the smartphone market some time back, and was welcomed by the lots of joy and excitement by the industry. Many people had been looking forward, and are now impressed by its actual release.
To be released with the Tecno Camon CX (C10) is the Tecno Camon CX Air (C10 Air) which is a somewhat slimmed down version of the Tecno CX smartphone, in terms which we are going to be considering as we go on below.
Stay with me as I go through the specs of the Tecno Camon CX (C10) Air smartphone. Please note that for easy understanding and better comparison, most of the specs considered under this review would be weighed with that of the Tecno Camon CX to enable our readers ascertain and distinguish better.
TECNO CAMON C10 AIR DISPLAY
The Tecno Camon CX Air smartphone, just like its other counterpart, boasts of a 5.5 inches display. A display which is just absolutely right for playing games, watching movies and doing one thousand other things that require a moderately big display. The smartphone has a resolution of f 1080 x 1920 pixels (HD) with display density of 293PPI.
DESIGN OF THE TECNO CAMON CX AIR
The Tecno Camon CX Air possesses a metal body, while it sports a 2.5D Glass Protector which brought about a slight curve at the 4 sides.
The phone measures 152.8 mm in length by 75.8 mm in breadth, while its thickness amounts to 7.75 in mm. It comes in Pink, Blue and Gold color variants.
RAM, ROM, PROCESSOR & OPERATING SYSTEM OF THE TECNO CAMON CX AIR
This device comes with a 2 GB RAM, which is very unlike the sister device – Tecno CX – which has two variants ( 2 GB and 3 GB). I expressed my disappointment at the size of the RAM earlier before now, and I still stand on that. Tecno has reached a status where they can produce 4 GB smartphones.
For storage of music, photos, videos, documents and a lot more other things, the Tecno Camon CX Air device packs an internal memory of 16 GB (Tecno Camon CX had two variants) which can be expanded to the tune of 128 GB with the use of a micro SD card.
The Tecno Camon CX Air runs on an Android Operating System v7.0 Nougat while it possesses a Quad-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6750T, along with a processor speed of 1.25 GHz. The processor is one of the major differences between the two devices, as the ‘Air’ device has a MediaTek processor while the other one possesses a Helio processor. So one found, how many more to go?
TECNO CAMON CX AIR CAMERA
Well, this is an aspect where there is a major difference between the Tecno Camon CX and the Tecno Camon CX Air. Remember how many cameras the Tecno Camon CX came with? It came with four cameras which amounted to a shopping 64 MP camera quality. But then, it is not the case with the Tecno Camon CX Air.
The Tecno Camon CX Air comes with a 13 MP camera on both the front and back camera, which is just the same as that of the previous Tecno C9. The rear of the C10 Air sports a dual camera flash light, which was not so from last year’s series flagship.
FINGERPRINT SENSOR AND 4G LTE
The Camon CX Air, like its bigger counterpart, comes with a fingerprint sensor, unlike the Camon C9 that only possessed an ‘eyeball scanner’ for security verification. It also, as expected, supports the 4G LTE network. I don’t even think that should be a fuss anymore. It is glaring that if you want to be accepted by the market, your device should support the 4G LTE as much as it supports Bluetooth.
TECNO CAMON C10 AIR BATTERY
The battery of this device is another difference between it and its sister device. Unlike the 4000 mAh battery capacity the C10 came with, The C10 Air came with a much lesser capacity amounting to 3200 mAh.
I believe we are beginning to see why it is very fair and okay to refer to the C10 Air as the ‘Lite’ or slimmed down version of the C10 device. The battery is of the Li-Po and surely non removable as you would expect.
PRICE OF THE TECNO CAMON CX AIR DEVICE
The Camon CX (C10) Air device is expected to sell for around N50,000 to N75,000. Well, I must say that the range at which it plans to sell is a very fair one, and would surely keep Tecno in the game. Prices had always kept Tecno in the game. The Tecno C10 Air would compete favorably with other smartphones which are in its category.
It costs Ksh. 14000 in Kenya.
