Tecno Camon CM (CMore) now stands as the first device from Tecno Mobile to feature the 18:9 aspect ratio. Regular smartphones come with 16:9 screen ratio which means significant side, top and bottom bezels. But with the 18:9 ratio, you will get larger display on a smaller body
The Camon CM boasts a slim and elegant body design with its total thickness measuring at about 7.75 mm. The Android smartphone falls into the Camon family so you should also expect quality camera capacities but are these all the Camon CM has in store?

Tecno Camon CM Features Overview
Tecno Camon CM hosts a 5.7 inches display with HD resolution of 720 by 1440 pixels, the pixels quality may not be at its best but it is typically well to do. There is an unspecified corning gorilla glass on the screen for protection from scratch.
On the inside sits a Quad-core processor with Mediatek MT6737 chipset, the processor clocks at 1.25 GHz. The Camon CM sports a 2GB RAM which is enough to give you a lag-free multi-tasking experience, there might also be 3GB RAM/32GB ROM version of the device but that is yet to be confirmed.
Tecno Camon CM runs the Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with HiOS 2.0 from TECNO Mobile on top, the HiOS is highly customized Android operating system with more optimized and sleeker user interface.
On-board storage for the Camon CM is 16GB with option to expand to up to 128GB using a micro SD card if the user is in need of more storage space. The smartphone is a dual Micro SIM Android device and supports dual standby with 4G network option as expected.
The Camon series in Tecno’s lineup are known for their astounding camera qualities and the Camon CM seems not to disappoint in that aspect, the device pulls a 13 megapixels rear camera with LED flash and another 13 megapixels camera at the front with LED flash as well.
The front LED flash can be used as torchlight just like the back LED flash, and also for notification indicator purposes.
Tecno Camon CM houses a 3,000 mAh battery in store, this is a bit smaller than what we saw in last year’s Tecno Camon CX that has a 3,200 mAh battery but remember the Camon CM has smaller body than its predecessor.
In the design aspect, Tecno Camon CM looks more like the Spark K7. The body is made of plastic with smooth finishing, its fingerprint scanner is positioned at the back to provide additional security for the device. Available colors are Champagne Gold, City Blue and Mid-night Black.
The Camon CM price is expected to range from 47,000 naira to 52,000 naira in Nigeria which is about 130 USD and Ksh13,000 in Kenya. The device is currently available for pre-order via some 3C Hub stores in Nigeria, the pre-order will run from 10th to 14th January before the official sale starts from 15th to 20th January.

Please I need a phone with great selfie which phone do you think I should go for
I don’t like the battery capacity
Please what causes the redness of pictures in camon cm?
Mine doesn’t have that problem. I just use it on eye care because with no eye care the screen looks blue.
Please where can I get my carmon Cm touchpad and screen?
please advice me on which to buy, spark k9 , camon cx or camon cm?
I’d say Camon X Pro, the newest one.
For goodness sake when will tecno company stop beating round the bush and give us good phone space at good rates
Can’t they make a device with at least 4000 -4500mAh battery and up to 3gb ram
All their devices is running on one circle
Giving us different face with same configuration all the time and we pay more to get what we already have….. I think they lack good view for the future

Nice phone. The only thing that can make me exchange my Tecno CX to Tecno CM. Is the 18:9 screen on the CM, but still the CM is a 720p display. If the CM is a 1080p display, I for don upgrade already

Fresh device. nice one Tecno.
But this CM make sha. I love it

This device is simply amazing no doubt.
NNice one and keep it up
Am particular abt d 4glite working with Glo…review on dis.
Glo? Use better internet brah!
Glo 4g is faaaaassssster than fast. Incase you don’t know
There is no improvement in the CM at all.
A larger screen size is no improvement? What’s wrong with you people?
My Tecno spark plus K9 always writing system UI is not responding all the time and I’m thinking of going to Tecno office to complain or if they can give me another Tecno that’s worth the same amount as the Spark plus. please I need a reply on this issue please …
since your phone is still under warranty, you should go asap
Download/update ANDROID WEB VIEW app on the play store, solved the problem for me.
Amazing. Really was impressed with what I saw on YouTube as the unboxing. Sure it’s going to be worth every penny
I think this is another budget device. Better than the CX air. I’d love to see a better RAM and a bigger battery though.
i think am with you on this
Pls, can the CM connect with HSPA+ on Airtel and LTE on GLO. Thanks
Not a bad device after all. Display. Camera. Design top notch.
heard this phone sells for just 47k, thats a steal
best believe TECNO aint stopping soon, other brand are in for it
wrong to talk about this phone without applauding tecno first
camon with the camera masterclass
how can I get the phone I am from edo state my phone number is 09033255083
Visit any 3chub outlet in your location or just order from jumia
When you get to review the CamonCM, I’d please like to know specifically if it supports LTE band 26 to work with Glo 4G.
It has the same band with Tecno CX. So yes it works with GLO
It has the same band with Tecno CX. So yes it works with GLO
I love this Camon CM….the display is so nice.
how much is tecno CM
Oh with every thing i have read and seen
Tecno is going down my camon c9 is far better than this cm .is only fingerprint that my c9 doesn’t have.
Going down? How? I think they make phones for everyone and anyone.
I need the phone how can I get it
Go to any retail shops or 3CHub. It sells for 47k according to Tecno
very awesome device this tecno camon cm is.
i have great pictures from the camon cx,i can only imagine how good pictures taken with the camon cm would look like
Not Too Much Difference With My Camon Cx Air..
Why would tecno go from producing something like camon cx to camon CM which we all know is lower. They are supposed to be going higher,i use camon cx and was excited when I saw the post so I could atleast change to something else but as it stands cx is better than CM.
Who will buy that CM, only villagers who don’t know anything about phone will do so. Even my C7 is far far better than that so called CM. We want an upgraded phone, not a downgraded phone.
you have a c7 and you want an upgrade. What for? You cant even upgrade to c8 and you want an upgrade of cx are you crazy
Still confused o someone told me is better and seeing tis nooo way misplaced my iphone tinking of going bk to iphone pls which tecno or infiniz is better n pls do no how to track iphone
If you ask me I will recommend you to go for the Infinix Note 4 pro
It’s a 3gb ram phone, 4500mAh battery and internal 32gb everything is good no slow process at all it goes out for maximum of 70,000 in Naira
Tecno company is producing rubbish and their products are below market standard since they have sworn to be giving us what we already have at a higher rate
No online sale for camon cm ? tecno wassup na
It’s on jumia and konga
For heaven’s sake there better be a pro version of this, coz this is in no way an upgrade to the CX. Screen resolution is lowered from FHD to HD, processor lowered from 1.5Ghz Octa to 1.3Ghz Quad. Camera lowered from 16 to 13mps(though i know this doesn’t determine the overall image quality) and apparently it’s body was given a plastic build.
You re riight, tecno and infinix are just reproducing old phones with new design
but this camon cm is cool though
no mind them joor phone Don finish
I thought I was the only one that noticed this. This is basically a rehashed camon cx air and can’t consider it an upgrade or a successor to the camon cx. Even the camon cx is Octa core while the CM is Quad core
Like seriously this is no way an upgrade to the CX at all…
Let wait and see if anything new is coming from them to replace this Camon CM
I don’t think the Camon CM is intended as an upgrade on CX.
Hi, you got the price in Kenya wrong. 1 USD is roughly KSh 100. So the price is around KSh 15,000 in Kenya.
Hello, thanks for pointing that out!
Dual Nano Sims, not micro please.
SO does it mean to say that the usd price is $150
