Review

Tecno Camon 12 Pro is currently the highest varient of all camon series launched in September, 2019. While the device is the direct successor of last year’s Camon 11 Pro, it also brings in the interesting in-screen fingerprint scanner seen in the recent Phantom 9 by Tecno. But the 12 Pro borrows much more from the 9, than just in-display fingerprint. 

Tecno Camon 12 Pro specifications features and price

For starters, it has same AMOLED 6.35-inch U-shaped notch display, with HD+ display (720 x 1600 pixels). Sadly, it also loaned itself same 3500mAh battery on the P9, instead of the larger 4000mAh battery used on it siblings (Camon 12 and the 12 Air).

On the hardware department, the device is runned by an Octa-core MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 CPU, clocked at 2.0GHz, along with PowerVR GE8320 GPU, a 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, expandable via microSD card.

Tecno camon 12 Pro fingerprint scanner

There’s a triple rear-mounted camera setups of 16-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel Wide-angle lense, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, couple with a quad LED flash. Upfront, Tecno made use of a single 32-megapixel sensor to cater for selfie needs, along with dual LED flash. 

What’s more? The device comes with the aforementioned in-screen fingerprint scanner and AI FaceID. There’s dual micro-SIMs with support for 4G LTE network on both SIMs, with Glo band 28 and runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Other key specifications of the Tecno Camon 12 Pro are detailed in the table below.
