Here’s what we know so far about them.


TECNO Camon X and XPro: All About the Selfie Game


Not to be confused with the Camon CX series, the new Tecno Camon X series was obviously built with selfie addicts in mind. I mean, why else would anyone put a 24-megapixel front camera on a smartphone?

According to Philex Meng, Chief Marketing Officer Tecno Mobile, it goes even beyond the megapixels.
 
Standout Selfie Camera Features

  • “4-in-1” mode — utilizes 4 different small cells to balance color, lighting and combines them into one picture
  • Bokeh effect mode to place more focus on your face than the background
  • Intelligent adjustable flashlight
  • “AI-powered” selfie beautification
  • 3-HDR mode for portrait and group selfies.

Similarities

  • Android 8.1 Oreo, layered with HiOS V3.3
  • 16MP rear camera with ring flash and “super pixels”
  • 3750 mAh battery
  • 2.0GHz Octa-core processor, MediaTek Helio P23 processor
  • Face ID and fingerprint security available

Tecno F Series: Go-power!
Tecno also announced the F series — Tecno F1, Tecno F2 and Tecno POP(aka F3) — as their new entry-level models, which leverage the Android Oreo (Go edition).
The Android Oreo (Go edition) was developed specifically for entry-level smartphones and comes pre-installed with stripped down, ‘offline-first’ versions of popular Google apps such as YouTube Go, Gmail Go and other “Gos”.
Needless to say, the F series is targeted primarily at first-timers so, don’t expect all the bells and whistles of a mid to high-end smartphone.
