Tecno Camon 18 Premier
The Camon 18 Premier is the third device in the Camon 18-series, not just that, it has the best feature on the three, the most notable one being the presence of Gimbal Optical Image Stabilization aimed at giving users images and video footages as stable as possible.
Now instead of the 6.8-inches IPS panel on the Camon 18P, the 18 Premier model is given a 6.7-inches panel, but with AMOLED screen that has 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution. You also get 120Hz refresh and a centralized punched notch atop the screen housing the selfie cam, which has now grown to 32-megapixel.
As for the camera department, three snappers are used on the rear; a 64-megapixel primary lens with f/1.6 large aperture and PDAF, a second 8-megapixel Periscope lens with 5x optical zoom and up to 60x digital zoom; then a third 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with Gimbal Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
On the inside, the Camon 18 Premier is powered by same MediaTek’s Helio G96 octa-core CPU used on the 18P variant. It has 8-core CPUs split into dual-core @2.05GHz Cortex-A76, and Hexa-core Cortex-A55 @2.0GHz.
