On the way: Expected Specs of TECNO Camon X and X Pro

The TECNO Camon X is the rightful successor to last year's Camon CX.

The Camon series, TECNO’s’s camera-centric phones will see 2 new addition when the TECNO Camon X and TECNO Camon X Pro are launched in Lagos, Nigeria during the Tecno 2018 Global Spring Launch, scheduled to come off on April 5, 2018. The two phones are successors to the very popular TECNO Camon CX.

TECNO has been teasing these new devices on social media for a while now, and it is now official that it is launching on April 5th.

Expected Specs and Features of the TECNO Camon X and X Pro


We expect both devices to run the latest version of Android – Android 8.0 or Android 8.1 (Oreo) with security patches up to at least February 2018. The HiOS 3.3 UI skin should be present on the two phones as well.


Both devices are expected to be 6 inches and as shown on teaser images, we expect to see a Full-HD+ IPS Display. Oh, and don’t forget the Camon CM ushered in the 18:9 screen ratio for Tecno phones and the X and X Pro are not expected to be any different in that regard.


The TECNO Camon X and X Pro are expected to pack in them either an Helio P23 or a Snapdragon 430. However, the Helio seems more certain. When it comes to RAM and Storage, the Camon X will have a combination of 3GB Ram + 32GB Storage space while the Camon X Pro will be slightly higher with 4GB of RAM plus a whopping 128 GB of storage.


Oh yes, remember we said the Camon Series is a camera focused series? This means we expect a lot from the camera of the phone.

Judging from other online publications, there has been a mention of a 60 MP Camera. I don’t see how that’s possible without a major redesign of the rear of the phone unless TECNO is using technology like that of the Pure View from Nokia.

However, we expect that the rear camera of both phones will at least have a 12 + 20 MP Dual Rear Camera setup with quad-LED flash, interpolated. Another surprise will be with the front, where we expect to see a 8 MP Dual front Camera with dual LED flash.

It is expected to have some more fancy stuff with the camera, like the Blink Tech, which allows photos to be taken once a person blinks at the camera.

Other Specs

The battery is expected to have an improvement with 4000mAh and fast charging compatible on both devices but you shouldn’t be surprised to see the usual 3000mAh as has been the case with earlier TECNO Camon phones.

Other expected features

60MP Camera? Well, that’s what is to be expected from a few sources, but I think the basic hardware will make that very difficult for now. However, April 5 is not so far away.

Yes, there will be Facial Recognition for unlocking the phones.

I have also heard talks about a built-in liquid cooling system for the TECNO Camon X and TECNO Camon X Pro. This is something I think is unlikely. TECNO, in my opinion, will focus on devices that don’t heat up too much than one that heats up so much that it needs a cooling system. However, the feature could be introduced also for marketing gains.
