The Tecno Camon C10 -also known Tecno Camon CX– has been on the wait list of many after the unexpected high price tag of the 2016 flagship device –Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus– left a lot of Tecno fans disappointed. According to a reliable source, the Chinese base company -Tecno- is planning a minor shake-over, the company is rumored to release only three flagship smartphones in 2017, instead of the annual four flagship devices we have seen in the previous years.
However, the decision is to be in line with the brand’s move to improve its rank and global strategy, after finding there way into the Middle East and South American markets in the fourth quarter of 2016. Perhaps, Tecno is yet to release any official statement to support this claim.
As you already know, the Tecno Camon CX will subsequently succeed the last year’s Camon C9 which proved to be a great device. There have already been a lot of rumors about the concept and features of the Tecno Cacmon CX, top mobile pundits are already talking about the next generation camera advancements and other features expected of the brand’s Camera-centric product line.
The Tecno Camon CX is expected to make its way into the Android market come April 2017, the design concept in the Tecno Camon CX a complete makeover from what we saw in Tecno Camon C9. Tecno have shifted a great deal of focus to the front camera and this time, we expect to see features like low light technology, panorama and extremely wide angles take centre stage in the front camera. The Camon CX is said to come with 16 mega pixel camera for both the back and front shooters, it will also come with some extraordinary camera features that will accord its title of “the best Selfie camera under extreme lowlight” or generally, in extreme conditions.

Tecno Camon CX will carry a full metal body, it will also boot the latest Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box. it will obviously become the first device from Tecno to run the Android Nougat. The user interface is customized with HiOS 2.0. Tecno is reportedly planning on providing an Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade for Camon C9 users.
Sources revealed that the Tecno Camon CX will sport a 5.5 inches full HD display with a 2.5D curved glass, Under the hood is a mediaTek (MTK) Helio P10 Octa-core 64-bit Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.5 GHZ. This processor is supported by a 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage space is provided. If you’re a heavy user, there is also a 3GB RAM version as well to give you lag-free multi-tasking experience.
The device will support dual SIM with dual standby, 4G LTE network support, storage expandability support via MicroSD up to 128GB and to crown it all, Tecno Camon CX will host a Fingerprint scanner which is placed at the back below the camera region. The Camon C9 was first reported to come with this feature (Fingerprint sensor) but it turned out to be just rumors, we hope it won’t be the same with the C10 device.
At the Power department, Tecno Camon CX will house a 3200 mAh Li-Polymer battery which is said to feature a light speed charge, The Chinese OEM is saying that an hour charge of the Tecno Camon C10 can give you up to 70% of battery juice and also, 10 minutes of charge can standby for a whole day.

Other Phones to Consider
When looking for phones with quality selfie or wefie cameras, Infinix S2 Pro comes to mind with its dual front camera (13MP + 8MP) and wide-angle of 135 degree. It goes for about the same price as the Tecno Camon CX, though the CX has a better display than S2 Pro in terms of quality and size, (the S2 Pro has 5.2-inch display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels). S2 Pro has its RAM and internal storage capacity (3GB RAM and 32GB ROM) to fight with though.
If quality display is why you are attracted to the Tecno Camon CX, you might fancy Infinix Note 3 Pro which comes with 6-inch display, and feature full HD display just like the CX. The Note 3 Pro comes with 3GB RAM which is 50% more than the 2GB RAM of the Tecno Camon CX and if also sports a larger battery capacity (4500mAh compared to 3200mAh battery of the Tecno Camon.
