Tecno has added to its already-long list of phones in the Camon series with the launch of the Tecno Camon 11. This device comes as a direct successor to the Tecno Camon X which was released about 6 months ago. Tecno devices have been known to be pocket-friendly when compared to some other phones with the same specs, and Tecno tries to always keep to that.

The Tecno Camon 11 comes with some improvements over the Camon X, the most noticeable being the bigger display. The device comes with a display with the 19:9 aspect ratio that is currently in vogue.
