The Tecno Camon 16 happens to be one of the latest smartphones from the Camon line. It is a pocket-friendly alternative to the Tecno Camon 16 premier and as you would have thought you would not be having all the premier features but a 64-megapixel camera, more internal storage, 18W fast charge and a powerful battery to boot are more than enough for its price tag.

Tecno Camon 16: Design and Display
Being the lesser sibling to the Tecno Camon 16 series, there are some certain differences in the form department with the fingerprint scanner still on the rear as to the Camon 16 premier’s side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The squarish quad-camera and LED flash setup retains its position right above the fingerprint scanner with its pultruding structure creating a wobble when placed on a flat surface. The faintly silver written Tecno branding also occupies the bottom center of the smartphone.
Turning to the front of the phone, you are welcomed to an 83.2% screen-to-body ratio on a 6.8-inch display which happens to be an inch shorter than the 6.9-inch display found on the premier version.
Sad to find out that the Tecno Camon 16 does not have a dual front-facing camera but a punch-hole camera on its 720×1640 resolution display as to the 1080p seen on the high-end Camon 16 premier.
A range of three colors are available for purchase and the include Purist Blue, Misty Grey and Cloud White.
Tecno Camon 16: The Cameras
With a quadruple-camera, you can expect the Tecno Camon 16 to deliver in terms of pixels with a 64-megapixel HDR-capable primary camera, a 2-megapixel for improved depth-sensing and, another 2-megapixel macro camera for better zoomed pictures. The exemption of the 8-megapixel ultrawide camera found on the Camon 16 premier is replaced with an AI lens on the Camon 16.
Record crisp high-quality videos in 1440p at 30 frames per second and its Penta-LED flash can not go without a mention for brighter night photography.
A quick trip to the front of the phone we have a single 16-megapixel wide autofocus camera which is a downgrade compared to the 48-megapixel found on the Tecno Camon 16 premier.
Teamed up with the 16-megapixel capable of recording video in 1080p at 30 frame per second is a Dual-LED flash.
Tecno Camon 16: Hardware and Software
As you would expect Tecno Camon 16 is stripped down to a MediaTek G70 chipset similar to that on the Camon 15 and far from the MediaTek Helio G90T on the premium flagship edition. It wouldn’t entirely be bad news for the mobile gamers as this processor is capable of light gaming.
An in-built 5000mAh battery for added power, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a dedicated MicroSD slot for external storage is more good news for enthusiasts.
Tecno’s smooth running HiOS 7.0 user interface is featured alongside the Android 10 operating system.
Tecno Camon 16: Connectivity
No USB-C type port on the Tecno Camon 16 as it features a Micro-USB port but there’s a plus side to this with an 18W fast charge made available.
