So, what is the Camon X Pro’s hardware like? Let us take a look.
This device comes in a polycarbonate plastic that mimics an aluminum built. The polycarbonate material ensures that the price of the phone is kept low, as well as facilitating easier movement with it due to its light weight.
The phone comes in two colors, Bordeaux Red and Midnight Black, which are quite exquisite for people with great taste. Its back is slightly curved to ensure that users can comfortably hold it without applying strain to the hand.
It features a 2160 x 1080-pixel resolution on a 6-inch full HD display. The full HD display is pretty colorful and bright in broad daylight.
For anyone into media consumption, such as watching videos from your preferred social media platforms, you are assured of enjoying clear and high-quality images.
Its display stands out with its reduced bezels and rounded corners. When compared to its predecessors, the Camon X and the Phantom 8, it wins in terms of the screen to body ratio. It also has an 18:9 aspect ratio, which allows it to cover more of the front panel than its predecessors ever did. This aspect ratio also means that users get a larger display in a smaller footprint.
At the top part of the display is a 24 MP camera, dual flash, speaker, and notification LED. The backside carries a 16 MP camera with Quad flash and a fingerprint sensor.
The right side has the power and volume buttons, as well as a 3-in-1 tray that houses two Nano-SIMs and one SD card. At the bottom are a speaker, microphone, microUSB port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. Both the top and left sides of the device have nothing.
Both the Camon X and Pro take their design cues from the Phantom 8 with its unibody design. The Midnight Black variant comes with golden accents along the antenna bands and around the sides. Without touching it, one cannot tell that it is made of polycarbonate plastic.
Processor, storage, and performance
The phone is powered by a Mediatek MT6763T Helio P23 chipset with an octa-core processor clocking at a speed of 2.0 GHz. Using Mali-G71 MP2 GPU, the phone is unable to handle some heavy tasks, especially gaming. Therefore, if you are looking for a phone that will facilitate heavy and frequent gaming, this is not the best device for you.
Equipped with 4GB RAM, this device has a place in the smartphone future, regardless of the technological evolutions that emerge from time to time. This device also comes with a massive 64GB internal storage space, which is quite satisfying for an average smartphone user. In case you need more storage space, you can use a microSD card of up to 128 GB.
Tecno Camon X Pro battery capacity
The Camon X Pro is powered by an inbuilt 3750mAh battery, which is non-removable. The only issue here is that it takes quite a long time to charge. After one hour, you can only get around 50% charge or less, which is disappointing as this phone is pretty amazing in most, if not all other sectors.
Speaker and call quality
The sound emitted from this device is loud enough to be heard across a medium-sized room. However, using headphones will make the sound come out louder and clearer. The same applies for calls.
Let us take a look at the device's software.
Operating system & features
The OS run by this device is the Android 8.1 Oreo, which is pretty cool as it has quite a number of new improvements and features not found in older versions.
Users now have the option of unlocking their device using face unlock. This is the first time this feature has appeared on a Camon device, and it works perfectly!
Interesting to note, the faceID also works in darkness as a result of the flash which lights up your face, thus enabling visibility. The only time that it cannot work is when the owner’s eyes are closed. It also has a fingerprint scanner, which also works marvelously.
Camera, video, and image quality
This is one of the most important aspects of this phone. It comes with a 24 MP selfie camera with Dual-LED flash and a 16 MP rear camera with Quad-LED flash. Color reproduction and saturation on the cameras are great, and they handle dynamic saturation properly.
The camera has four modes; normal, beauty, panorama, and super pixel. Out of the four, the superpixel does the best job as images captured are sharp and vivid with great details.

Video recording is capped at 1080pixels, which is pretty clear. However, you need very steady hands or a tripod to have beautiful steady shots.

Against its predecessor, there is little improvement. However, the advancements made are significant. With the price of the Pro ranging from 64,000 Naira to 80,000 Naira and that of the standard Camon X ranging from 39,990 Naira to 60,000 Naira, you need to identify if the additional features in the Pro are worth spending the extra money.
The Tecno Camon X Pro accessories found in the box after purchasing are a 360-degree protective case, a 5V 2Ah charger, a micro-USB cable, and proprietary earphones, not to forget the user manual. It is crucial that you are aware of what you are looking for in a device, as it may get a bit confusing with all the new devices coming out today and their upgraded versions.
