The Tecno Camon 12 pro is a sleek and lightweight 6.35″ smartphone weighing just a hundred and sixty one (161) grams but slightly heavier than the Camon 11 Pro. That’s probably because of added inch of 1.35. So it’s bigger. It measures 158.6 x 75.5 x 7.8 mm (height, width and thickness respectively) thus, the device remains a slender smartphone that’s easy to handle. Another impressive feature is the 4G LTE network present on this phone with a speed as high as 50MBps. But that’s nothing new.
It sports a 6.35″ AMOLED LCD capacitive touchscreen, with 81.3% screen-to-body ratio. With the resolution being 720 x 1600 at 276 dpi, the Camon 12 Pro renders graphics in crisp bright colours. It runs Android 9.0 (Pie) on Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) chipset coupled with Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU under the hood. This should deliver speed and efficiency. No lagging, even for gaming. It comes only in a single version with the memory being 6GB ram and 64GB ROM. In case you ever exhaust your installed ROM, it supports sdCard up to 128GB through a microSD dedicated slot. Exact CPU features as seen in Camon 11 Pro but a few upgrades in the display.
The camera setup is quite impressive. It’s probably the major upgrade we’ll be seeing on this device. The rear camera is a trio of 16 + 8 + 2 MPs and the selfie camera is just a single lens of 32MP and an infrared which affords it the luxury of facial recognition as one of the security systems. The fingerprint sensor is fixed under the display. That’s kinda cool. The Tecno Camon 12 Pro is powered by a Non-removable Li-Ion 3500 mAh battery supported with the fast charge technology for quick top-ups. That’s a drop from the 3,750mAh found on Camon 11 Pro.
There are some few differences between the Camon 12 Pro and the Camon 12 Lite. The Camon 12 Lite comes in a single version of 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM and features 4,000mAh battery. Other differences are scattered across the processor, camera and a few other stuff which you’ll find interesting. Some might even make your jaws drop.

I’m not very impressed with he so called upgrade made to this device. I reckon that the few things were added and the fingerprint sensor that has been shifted from rear to under display counts for something but it’s not much. It would have been great if it came with 8GB RAM and if the battery capacity were higher than 3,500mAh. But still, the Tecno Camon 12 Pro is a nice device.
