From Today, smartphone buyers in East Africa will continue getting a sip of the most affordable smartphones after a vital war between manufacturers provoking a price vs feature showdown after the Camon 11

Meet the Notched Camon 11 smartphone

Artificially Intelligent (AI) Camera

For long, Tecno has focused on a beautiful selfies spree with its Camon Series smartphones and the drill has stayed true to the Selfie-centric streak. The Camon 11 ships in AI scenes off the 24MP front camera that produces maximum detail in a single picture in conjunction with a 16Mp+5Mp rear camera that further has the best facial recognition capabilities beating its predecessors with a bigger margin

Tecno inked of an AI backed beauty mode that recognizes age and gender in portraits. Additionally, the Camon 11 has an inbuilt document scanner, automatic scene detection and a variety of night mode features allowing you to capture more by sidelining with an improved HDR system

AR Emoji


Emojis are by no doubt popular as Memes on the Internet. Well, in case you’ve had a bad situation where you don’t have access to a particular Emoji style you prefer, Worry not the Camon 11 is built to create custom emojis with its AR capabilities. However, Tecno just pulled off a copy and paste of this feature primarily evidenced on Samsung’s proclaimed 3D emojis and Apple’s Animoji. But then, It’s simply awesome and we don’t mind if the feature crosses over to the next Spark or Phantom in 2019

Price and Availability

In Kenya, the Camon 11 is already available in all Tecno branded shops. However, the launch of this particular smartphone has not tasted the Pearl of Africa yet and we expect to see this particular smartphone cross lanes before the Christmas season.

A brand new Camon 11 smartphone has an asking price of Kshs 14,999 ($146, UGX 550,000) and its pro version going for Kshs 23,999 ($233, UGX 870,000). However, we expect these prices to change in Uganda due to taxes and importation policies by the time Tecno unveils the Camon 11 in the country. Nonetheless, the Camon 11 is a game changer that can closely rank with the Google Pixel 3 or the iPhone Xr in a picture quality showdown.
