Zero 8 vs Camon 16 Premier; same phone in different body


So I’m writing this comparison post just for those who may be asking on the differences between the Infinix Zero 8 and the Tecno Camon 16 Premier. The simply answer is, there is no difference between the two, both smartphones are literally the same, save for some little changes noticeable on the back cover only. Noticed the bolded back cover only? Yes, because, take off the back cover, and both phone will reveal almost similar setup again.

Then, the software that runs on the inside of both phones are different as well, XOS 7.0 for the Zero 8 and HiOS 7.0 for the Camon 16 Premier, but both OS are based on Google Android 10 out of the box.

Front the frontal view shown in the images below, you’ll noticed that there is no single difference between the two phones except for the display wallpaper used.

Zero 8 vs Camon 16 Premier comparison summary

Noticed some bolded differences in the table above? These are not major differences you’ll notice in real life usage. In the dimension row, the Camon 16 Premier is a little taller than Zero 8 for two reasons: first, it has 6.9-inches, and secondly, it has dual front-facing LED light, which are absent on the second contender. And since the pricing are almost same, brand loyalty should be the major deciding factor on which to buy.
