Some time ago I wrote that Transsion Holdings, the owner of the Tecno Mobile, Infinix Mobility and Itel brands was planning to launch devices with Pop Up camera. The company has released its first Pop Up Camera phone under the Tecno Camon series, Camon 15 Pro.

After launching in India, Tecno yesterday April 2nd 2020 launched the device in Nigeria. Commenting on the device, Tecno Mobility noted that;

“Featured with 48MP clear lens, support 8x to zoom in the picture after taking a shot, every details are perfectly captured and shown. The clearness of the whole picture has upgraded by 68%. Click the shooting to capture beautiful view and unforgettable memories, you will find that every details are presented purely and clearly.
The four pixels were combined into a 1.6 micron megapixel to create high-quality night shots. The large 1/2” sensor captures more light at night, producing a photo that is brighter and with less noise.”
The Tecno Camon 15 Pro is the direct successor to the Camon 12 Pro and it features a quad rear camera and some other specifications. Here is how the Camon 15 differs from the Camon 12.

Design and Display

The Camon 15 Pro has 6.6inch display panel which is taller than the Camon 12 Pro that has 6.35 inch panel. Since last year, Tecno has been trying to catchup with the rest of the smartphone world in trending designs.

This was evident as they finally introduced AMOLED, under-display fingerprint and punch hole cameras in the Phantom  and Camon series.

The Camon 15 Pro will take a step back to the IPS LCD display instead of the AMOLED used on the 12 Pro. This means that the Under display fingerprint is absent too.

The Selfie camera spot at the front panel is absent too as Tecno Mobility added a new feature to the Camon 15 Pro that moved the Camera to the top; the Pop-Up Camera.

To the right is the Volume control and power button. The left side houses the sim tray. The bottom of the phone contains a slim bezel for structural support while the base houses the 3.5mm jack, dedicated microphone, USB port, and speaker.

At the back of the phone, close to the top-left position is the quad camera and LED flash setup in a vertical manner. Unlike other Tecno phones, there is space between the phone’s border and the camera. The fingerprint module is placed at the center, followed by the Camon brand then the Tecno Brand.

The phone uses an unspecified glass protection for the screen and the body is built with plastic. Now the display is sharper than what we usually see on most Tecno phones. The Camon 15 Pro screen resolution stands at 1080 x 2340 pixels, with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Camera Specifications

The Tecno Camon 15 Pro sure did a major upgrade over its predecessor in this department.

The Camon 15 Pro dons a quad 48MP rear main camera, 5MP 115° ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP camera for 2cm macro, Ultra Night Lens supported by DSP chip, with f/1.79 aperture. This is much more than the 16MP + 8MP + 2 MP triple set up on the Camon 12 Pro.
CAMON 15 Pro takes the unprecedented step to start TAIVOS™(TECNO artificial intelligence vision optimization solution) to bring you truly ultra clear night shot. The Ultra Night Lens makes better edge correction and multi-frame noise reduction, producing more pure and clear night shot. Reduce overexposure to restore true night scene in all directions, improve the image brightness and dynamic range at the same time, shooting brighter photos in dark environments

In the selfie department, the Camon 15 Pro used a motorized pop-up camera with a 32MP lens. the same found on the Camon 12 Pro. The camera has a catalog of software improvements and filters designed to make it better

Hardware Components and Memory

The Tecno Camon 15 pro seems to share the same hardware specifications with the Camon 15. The phone uses the MediaTek Helio P35 Octacore processor. The SoC is clocked at 2.35GHz (4×2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53). In the graphics processing department, there is the PowerVR GE8320 with speed clocked at 650MHz

For multitasking, there is 6GB of LDDPR4x RAM space for efficient operations and also 128GB of storage space for local storage (The Camon 12 Pro had 64GB of storage space).

The Camon 15 Pro runs the Android 10 OS under the HiOS 6.0.1 skin. The HiOS may come with some beautiful add-ons like WhatsApp Call recorder, quick tab, bike and game mode, WhatsApp mode, etc. It also comes with a lot of bloatware and adverts that usually piss off users.

The phone has a 4000mAH battery to provide power. This is an upgrade from the 3500 mAh on the Camon 12 Pro. The battery should last over a day on heavy usage. The phone is expected to be sold around N60,000.
