Are you looking for a smartphone with a great camera, plenty of space and lasting battery? Tecno Camon 8 can meet all that and more. It is said that the phone was designed with photo enthusiasts in mind.

If you want to get the phone and you are looking for Tecno Camon c8 for sale, here is all you need to know about it.

Tecno Camon C8 specifications

Tecno Camon C8 is the successor of C5. That is why you will find that most of its features are an upgrade from what C5 offered. Also, C8 is bigger and so you can differentiate the two by looking at their size. The smartphone measures 150 x 76.3 x 8.8mm.

  • 4G connectivity

Other than its picture-taking capabilities, Tecno Camon C8 is the first smartphone from Tecno with 4G connectivity.

  • Camera

Tecno Camon C8 is considered as a camera-centric smartphone. The camera is one of its great features with its 13MP back camera and 5 MP front cameras. The rear camera has a dual flash while the front camera a LED flash. Not many phones have a LED flash for the front camera, which makes the Tecno Camon C8 stand out.

Besides, it can do low-light shooting, and you can still take your photos when it is dark. This is made possible by its dual flash feature, which enables it to produce intense light and take detailed images when it is dark.

The smartphone has many options for taking photos. For instance, you can use gestures or voice command to take pictures. Also, the phone can adjust focus, shutter speed and other photo-taking options so that it can produce the best image.

To make taking photos more manageable, a dedicated camera button is located on the right-hand side. All you are required to do is to focus and press the button to take a photo, without the need to go through its user interface.

  • Performance

Armed with 1.3GHz Quad-core CPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and Android v5.0 Lollipop, Tecno Camon C8 is a high-performance smartphone.  You can also upgrade the internal memory by 32GB using a micro SD. However, the phone could have run much better with Android v5.1, but no one is complaining.

Of the 16GB internal memory, 5GB is taken up by the Android OS while the user is left with 10GB.

Also, it comes with a Mediatek-MT6735 64-bit chipset, a powerful alternative than the 32-bit chip used in most phones. With this chipset, the phone doesn’t over-rely on the size of the RAM, and so it continues to be powerful even with its 1 GB RAM.

With these specifications, the phone can perform tasks such as using applications, browsing the web and playing graphics-intensive games with ease. You can easily multitask without slowing it down.

  • Display

Tecno Camon C8 comes in a 5.5 inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and a resolution density of 267 PPI. With these, the screen produces clear and sharp images.

While the display looks fantastic, the resolution density has reduced to 267ppi from 294ppi that was in the previous model Tecno Camon C5. This is after Tecno increased the display size but retained the 720p resolution.

  • Battery

Tecno Camon C8 has a battery capacity of 3000mAh which is enough to last long for a moderate user. This is an upgrade from the C5’s 2500mAh.

Other than the large capacity, the Li-ion battery also lasts longer because the 64-bit chipset consumes less energy, and so does the operating system which is highly customised.

Now, if you are a heavy user, such as watching videos or playing games, the battery may not last long. You will be required to charge often and to use a power bank.

Note that the battery is non-removable. To access it, you only need to remove the back cover.

  • Dual SIM

The phone has a dual SIM capability with the ability to use a micro-SIM or a regular SIM.
