Tecno Camon C9 launch: All the details


Tecno Camon C9 launch: All the details

Early this week, TECNO held a launch event for a new phone (and a smartband) and believe me, it was cool.

The colorful event which held at Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, was for the launch of the Camon C9 and Tecno T-Band and had quite a number of guests; from Nollywood stars, to beauty queens, to tech bloggers, journalists, VJs, and fashion designers

Although it started a while after schedule, most likely due to the rain, TECNO wasted no time in launching the new device. Guests were stunned at the specs of the C9 whose unique selling point is its 13MP front facing camera with flash. Other specs include a 5.5″ FHD screen, 2GB of RAM, 16GB ROM, HiOS 1.1 based on Android Marshmallow, 13MP rear camera, dual SIM slots, and a 3000mAh battery.

Speaking at the event, the Tecno MD , Chidi Okonkwo said TECNO’s latest camera smartphone is an expression of the brand’s pursuit of perfection in smartphone camera technology and its ultimate gift to photo lovers who enjoy taking stunning pictures from their smartphones.

“The best moments in life are often spontaneous and unplanned. Our ability to capture these moments in detail-in its full glory and color- is the essence of quality living. The CAMON C9 is the ultimate camera smart phone that literally allows users to capture time with every click of the shutter button,” He added.

The smartband which pairs to the C9 records your calories, has a built-in pedometer, and also alerts you when you’re a certain distance away from your phone.

2 guests and winners from the Tecnogram contest got units of the Camon C9 at the end of the day. Tecno also announced that a tour of the Camon C9 tagged C9ja around the country will start on the 15th of June (yesterday) and run for 14 days.

Do expect our review of the Camon C9. In the meantime, here are some photos from the launch and the official spec sheet:
