Most people were anticipating a fingerprint sensor on the Tecno C9, we were guilty of that too until we were informed by a reliable source from the Tecno company, it turns out to be that the device won’t be making it with one, the large round thing you’re seeing at the back is only a Lux natural flashlight.

Thanks for dropping your experience with the Tecno C9.
I will like to buy one of the phone .am staying in Ghana how will i buy it.
Have you checked whether the phone is available on Jumia Ghana?
it’s possible to ex-change my c9 to Tecno cx
I think you will have to go to a certified Tecno dealer near you to find out if that is possible. Alternatively, you can sell the Tecno Camon C9 and add money to it to get a brand new Tecno Camon CX.
I want to update my camo c9 because of 4G network bands.
am using GLO network GLO 4G is bands 28 Pls what I can do support that glo bands
I’m not sure if there is anything you can do on the device to make it support more network band. The best alternative is to get a new phone like Tecno Camon CX that supports the Glo 4G band.
me,I ‘ve camon c8 by the way it’s nice for me
I bought it last year,but ’till no probl. with it..hope it’s normal
Sure the Tecno Camon C8 is still a good phone.
Tecno Camon C9 is a bomb I really enjoy the smartphone, it’s a full utility for me but I wonder if it can stand the rumored Tecno Camon C10 that’s say to have 28mp
I have a camon c9 , I had issues with it, and it was rooted and the IMEI was lost, so the device is invalid now so what is the way out?
Without doubt, one of the best devices from TECNO.
Amazing phone. Like all Camon series, the camera is okay. And the 4G it comes with is nice too.
Beautiful phone. 13mp camera front and back is cool.
I bought my techno c9 for #61,000.
Hello Tech Blogger, I hope this meets you well? I was saving a lot of information as draft on my camon c9 I think my os updated, now I Can’t find the draft. Any way you may help me retrieve it. Help!!!
funny enough, the amount isnt too high i think thats the selling point of the phone sef, despite how good it is

Hello, the current price ranges from N60k to N62k in Nigeria.
D battery life is not strong….. When is fully charged, I don’t use it up to 8hours before it will runs down…
The phone is really nice..mine was stolen by a w*tch..may she die a painful death very soon.

gd,,brand bt wea cn i fynd it in Uganda
Your comment …plz o watz d current price for dz cammon c9
Camon series are moving out of the low – end series of tecno. Prices are being padded.
O boy, this device is worth the buy.
The battery is supposed to be up to 4000mAH, but I don’t know why c8 and c9 is sharing the same battery capacity.
I would rather go for infinix hote note.
Your reason for getting devices must be a little poor, for you to shenk the incredible specs of the Camon C9 for a hot note. Really?!
THe phone is not look good in back appearence position of flas and cammera
I beg to differ. The design is quite unique, I like the back appearance because it enables easy handling.
with that price, id rada go for gionee s6 pro….4gb ram, fingerprint sensor. way too cool.
I agree with you bruv, this Camon C9 is over hyped biko.
tecno c9 is too cost and no headset
Haba! Compare this to the infinix zero 3, I think the Camon C9 is the real deal with a perfect price slap.
I phone is best i swear
I phone is the coz nat made from china but camon c9 its some how convicing me
Tecno has got game.
mad as game yo
Your comment …but can the camera be compared with that of an I-phone ?..pls respond anyone
I’m beginning yo think this phone is over hyped, lemme wait for the official price first.
I bet you think dynamically otherwise now. It’s worth the hype.
I hope d amouth is not to high. For me I am nt tecno fans bt I think I luv dis due to d futures if that is how it looks.
the phone has launch today but who knows the price
The price is not yet officially released but its still rumored around #48k to #55k
Hahaha, you guys are something else @8IST and @Lewdbabe
speaking of feminine let’s not forget some of our guys that have forgotten their genders. lol. very sleek device i must say.
The device looks a little bit too feminine. That’s a plus for TECNO cos considering the fact that it’s a selfie phone, and we all know who the real selfie crazy people are. LOL
Let’s wait for the phone to arrive b4 we know the actual specs of this phone.
Those are the actual specs of the camon c9, its only the price that is yet to be certain
This phone is overhyped, its no worth more than #45k abeg
Can’t Wait for this phone, 1920 screen px and 13 mp front camera is all I want
Too far if u ask me… Way beyond my budget.
Hahaha am even hearing #54k to #56k somewhere else
I got fresh gist concerning tecnos latest camon release(c9). Sources say it would be released on the 19th of this month. Now to the bad or not-so-friendly news, I heard the price range of this device is within #49k – #52k? ?. The Lord is my strength
Woah, that’s very much oo, lol…far from our expectations
So tecno heard infinix is launching a smart watch and decided to do their own with T- band, will I say Tecno is copying Infinix or vice versa??just asking though
@Hart If I’m to say, canon c9 is worth the wait, the 2gb RAM and the camera features trips men more…
Almost got the boom j8 but had to pause a bit when I heard the c9 would be launched soon. The slim factor of the j8 coupled with the headphones simply blew me away… They say the c9 is way slimmer than the c8 plus lighter… Not to mention the juicy 2gb ram with the 1.5 or 1.7ghz processor speed integrated with marshmallow v6.0. This device had better be worth my wait…
Yeah.. It sure is a pretty cool feature. Thumbs up to Tecno mobile. The device should be hitting the mobile market say mid June
I really hope its not more than that price too oo cause 48,500 is big but what about the T-band its coming with? that sounds like a nice feature too
Really cool design and features. I just hope it’s not more than #45k as Jane rightly said. Rumor has it that the price is roughly #48,500… I’m scared o
Camon C9 is actually an awesome phone but a lot of people keep talking about the price being outrageous but I think only those who know its true value will go for it. Presently it’s worth about N65,000.
Definitely Tecno Camon C9 is a good phone at the price it is going for.
Per now how much is it I need a business in it
The price for Camon C9 is currently at 55,000 naira (152 USD) while the Camon C9 Plus (3GB and 32GB) is selling for 58,000 naira (160 USD)
Please how much is the tecno camon c9 plus right now in Nigeria?
Camon C9 currently costs around 61,000 to 64,000 naira in Nigeria
I especially like the 4G LTE part, but since our network providers no want port go 4G, who e epp? It’s good to know that other network bands will be present though.
The design is fine but it’s not something new naa, I hve seen dat type of design in many phones unless its the gold version that looked slightly different. I like the phones shaa and hope the price is not more than 45k.
is it just me?
Or does anyone else really like the way they designed the back of this phone?
My dear. You are not alone.
I love the design too
