Infinix Note 12 VIP vs Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G: Specs comparison

So we got some rumor today that the Note 20 is already headed to Pakistan, and might go official within next. But for us in this part of the world, the Note 12 is the latest from Infinix, and the VIP models is currently the company’s flagship device under the Note series. But how does it compare with Tecno’s latest Camon 19 series.

When it comes to buying choice, the Camon 19 Pro 4G wins it for us, and probably for most people. But for fairness sake, we’ll pair the top model in the Note 12 series, (i.e. the Note 12 VIP), with the highest model in the Camon 19 series (i.e. the Camon 19 Pro 5G). The reason for this is simple; both phone are price a pinch under N200,000 in Nigeria.

As you would expect, both of these phones has one or two things in it favor as against the other. Obviously the 33W fast charging on the Camon 19 Pro 5G will see no success against the 120W charger on the Note 12 VIP, just like the 5G speed on the 19 Pro 5G will give the Note 12 VIP a run for it money.
