Tecno Camon 18i with Helio G85 CPU announced in Nigeria


Tecno might have gone stealth mode on yet another smartphone again, this time a device in the Camon 18-series dubbed Camon 18i. As you would expect, no any official statement has been made regarding this new device, and nothing is stated on the companies official page either.


However, the Camon 18i is a mere rebadged of the base model on the vanilla Camon 17. In fact, the phones model number is CG6, which is the base model of the 17-series. It has a 4GB RAM and a 128GB of built-in storage, and can be further expanded with an external SD-card as well.
