The Tecno Camon 18 Premier which replaces Camon 17 pro is now the most premium smartphone in the Camon series. This smartphone has many upgrades from its predecessor, including a higher refresh rate, a higher processor, better quality screen resolution, and more. Below is a detailed review of The Tecno Camon 18 Premier.
The rear side of The Tecno Camon 18 Premier features a gradient color system that is nearly identical to that of its predecessor Camon 17 pro. However, Tecno Camon 18 Premier has a square-like camera module with bigger camera circles. The rear camera tray also holds an LED flash that enhances visibility when taking pictures in dark areas. This phone is available in two colors options, including polar night and vast sky.
Tecno Camon 18 Premier features a 6.7-inch AMOLED display which is slightly smaller than the 6.7-inch display of its predecessor. This display has a punch-hole in the top-middle position and a screen resolution of 1080 x 2460. This phone has an 87.2% screen-to-body ratio and a 20:9 ratio.
The selfie camera features a 32MP camera that takes high-quality HD images and videos. On the other hand, the primary camera is equipped with a triple camera system rather than a quad-camera system on the Camon 17 Pro. This triple system does not have the depth camera that we saw in the predecessor. Instead, it has a 64MP camera with an aperture of f/1.6, an 8MP periscope telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom, and an aperture of f/3.5. However, unlike its predecessor, Tecno Camon 18 Premier has a new feature known as the Gimbal OIS stability system, which helps to enhance the stability of videos and photos, leading to a better, high-quality camera. This technology has been integrated into its 12MP ultra-wide camera.
The Camon 18 Premier is powered by the Helio G96, which replaces the Helio G95 on the Camon 17 Pro. This new chipset is not only more powerful but also more energy-efficient. The processor is paired with Mali-G57 MC2 and 8GB RAM which ensures smooth performance even when multitasking. The phone runs HIOS 8.0 user interface on the Android 11 operating system.
The Tecno Camon 18 Premier has a storage capacity of 256GB built-in storage, which can be expanded further through the micro SD card.
Tecno Camon 18 Premier is powered by a 4750mAh battery that can last for up to 12 hours of mixed-use. The phone comes with a 33W fast charger that refills the battery from 0- 64% in 30 minutes.
