Tecno is becoming increasingly popular among fans of affordable but suitable phones. And with good reason. The manufacturer’s latest efforts have all been offered hardware that beats far beyond its price range.
The Tecno Camon 19 is the latest in this line of devices. We got Sea Salt White, which has an iridescent finish that is beautiful in any light. There is also an even more beautiful Digital Green model out there.
The Tecno Camon 19 comes in a package with an 18W charger, USB cable and a case (which is on the phone in the picture below).
In terms of specifications, the Tecno Camon 19 sounds solid, although of course you can not expect any wonders in this price range. It has a 6.8 inch IPS LCD with 1080p resolution. It’s a nice panel, but it’s a bit let down by its standard refresh rate (Tecno Camon 19 Pro has the same panel, only 120Hz).
The battery is a generous 5,000 mAh device. Whichever model you go for, you get 128 GB of built-in storage space. The main camera is a 64MP 1 / 1.7 “f / 1.7 device, which should be more than adequate in all lighting conditions.
The chipset is the MediaTek Helio G85, a 12nm chip with two Cortex-A75 cores running at 2.0GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores running at up to 1.8GHz. There is either 4GB or 6GB of RAM.
The problem with any Tecno smartphone is availability. It is difficult to find these phones outside of developing markets. One such market is Kenya, where it has a price equivalent to € 190, which is a steal for the hardware.
Stay tuned for a more detailed look at the Tecno Camon 19.
