Unboxing the Camon 12 Pro
The smartphone is packaged in the regular rectangular box. It has the specifications on it and the “CAMON12 Pro” clearly visible on it. At the front is a beautiful gradient on the phone’s screen.
When you open the box, you see the regular – the phone sitting pretty covered with a film paper with its key specifications on it.
When the contents of the box are emptied, you see all accessories. Accessories are:
- Power Adapter
- User manual and warranty card
- Earphone pair (TECNO is yet to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack)
- SIM ejector tool, &
- A pouch
Looking at the pouch closely, it’s hard to miss the CAMON logo and the Manchester City partnership emblem, TECNO recently renewed that with the Premier League champions.
A closer look at the bottom of the device shows the speaker grill, USB 2.0 charging port, the mic and 3.5mm audio jack port.
Looking at the side, we see the Nano-SIM port (dual) and a dedicated Google assistant button for the first time on a TECNO device. The other side shows the up and down volume button and the power button.
For the Phantom 9, TECNO hammered on the Lapland Aurora design at the back, this time the Camon 12 has a vibrant gradient C-design. Looking closely, we see the triple rear camera and the quad-LED flash.
At the front is the dot-notch which houses the selfie camera and the dual-LED flash.
The Camon 12 Pro will be available nationwide in the coming days. Stay tuned!
