Design and Display
Both the Infinix Note 7 Lite and the Tecno Camon 15 look very much alike and in fact, they have many things in common. This includes their design. Probably the only difference prominent in the design rests with branding – TECNO/INFINIX and CAMON/NOTE.
Both phones are 6.6 inches, share the same frontal and rear design including camera number, positioning and alignment. The controls – volume up, volume down, power button and fingerprint scanner are also found on the same location.
The same is the situation after checking the display as well. The display features shared by these phones are the same: 6.6 inches IPS LCD with 700 x 1600 resolution and 266 pixels per inch pixel density. On this display to the top-left is the punch hole housing the selfie camera. Exactly as found both phones.
While the Tecno Camon 15 comes in 3 colours which include Shoal Gold, Fascinating Purple and Jade, the Infinix Note 7 Lite comes in 3 colours which are Forest Green, Violet and Space Gray
Platform, Storage & Battery
As much as the Camon 15 and the Note 7 Lite look alike on the outside, we have a different story to tell about the insides. I’ve earlier mentioned that the devices found in Infinix Note series are made for gaming, this can only be possible if it possesses a chipset and CPU that is up to the task.
While the Infinix Note 7 Lite sports MediaTek Helio G70 (an SoC made for mainstream users and elite gamers) which is supported by an Octa-Core (2 x 2.0GHz Cortex-A75 and 6 x 1.7GHz Cortex-A55) CPU and Mali-G52 2EEMC2 (820MHz) GPU, the Camon 15 sports MediaTek Helio P22 (a low performance SoC made for power efficiency) which is supported by an Octa-Core (2.0 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU and PowerVR 8320 (650MHz) GPU. This obviously, is a big deal.
Concerning storage, both phones have them to offer in abundance but while the Camon 15 comes in a single release which features 64 gigabyte of internal storage coupled with 4 gigabyte of RAM, the Note 7 Lite comes in 2 variants which features 64GB 4GB RAM and 128GB 4GB RAM.
On the power house, both phones come with 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery each. But while the Note 7 Lite comes with a 10W fast charge technology, there’s no record of this for the Camon 15. However, we assume it has a fast charge tech, since there’s yet to be a Camon device without it since its existence.
Camera, Comms & Network
Both the Tecno Camon 15 and the Infinix Note 7 Lite feature nice cameras and incidentally, with identical features with a single difference. These phones feature a quad camera array of 48MP [f/1.8, (wide), 1/2.0″, 0.8µm, PDAF], 2MP [f/2.4, (macro)], 2MP [f/2.4, (depth)] and QVGA. Just the same on both phones.
The selfie cameras – though occupying identical spaces on their respective hosts – are a bit different from one another. The Camon 15 features a 16MP sensor as the selfie camera while the Note 7 Lite features an 8MP sensor.
For the comms and network, both phones feature almost same specs. Except for the fact that the Note 7 Lite has more network bands than the Camon 15.
Basically though, both phones feature GSM, HSPA and LTE bands for network and for the comms, we have WLAN (Wi-Fi, hotspot), GPS with A-GPS, FM Radio, Bluetooth 5.0 and microUSB 2.0 with On-The-Go support.
