Tecno Camon X just dethroned tecno cm to be the latest king of tecno mobile’s camera centric line.
I suspect something like this might happen following the launch of camon cm in January 2018 with almost the same specs as 2017’s tecno camon cx and cx air.
The only notable difference was the 18:9 aspect ratio which happens to be the latest display view trend in the industry.
It now became clear to me that cm was so tecno could check their hand on the bezel-less design.
Infinix did the same with the hot s3.
The camon x is a worthy and acceptable upgrade to last year cx, cx air and cx manchester edition.
The new camon x was officially announced and shown to the world on the 5th of April 2018 at Tecno 2018 Global Spring Launch.
This event took place in Lagos, Nigeria.
It started around 5PM Nigerian time and ended around 10PM. Watch the full launch below in case you missed it.
Camon X launch price is 59,800 Naira. You can get the device on Jumia, Konga and Slot Nigeria.
Announcement in other African countries like Kenya, Ghana and Tanzania is in the next coming weeks.
