Tecno just launched a new device into the Camon lineup the Tecno Camon i4 and the device comes with very impressive specifications and a very good price in this post I’ll be looking at the specs of the Tecno Camon i4.
The TECNO CAMON i4 ships with a mid-range MediaTek Helio A22 processor for the 2GB / 3GB RAM version and a MediaTek Helio P22 processor for the 4GB RAM version and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage.
The Camon i4 runs on Android 9.0 with HiOS 4.6 on top, keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery with support for fast charging.
I do hope the fast charging isn’t the same as the Xcharge on the Tecno Spark 2 because that means it’s not actually fast charge. Tecno deserves this shirt on that note
Design And Display
I’m quite impressed with the fact that Tecno decided to go with the dewdrop notch on this device instead of that lousy Apple-like rectangular notch. This one is quite similar to the one on the Samsung M20 and I’d say it’s not bad at all considering the fact that they’ve been giving us phones with notches since the release of the Camon 11 Pro.
You basically get a 6.2-inch IPS Capacitive display with an 81.3% screen-to-body ratio. It’s not something you would call totally bezelless as there’s still as small chin below the device.
The Camera is one of the selling points of this device as the smartphone’s triple camera has a 13MP, 8MP, and 2MP lens combination, which means you would get an impressive performance while taking photos and recording videos at 1080p. The secondary camera at the front is a 16-MP lens and great for selfies. You also get better quality when calling someone via video so cheers to the Snapchat and Instagram Slay Queens.
Software And Hardware
In the specifications department, I’ll give Tecno a B+ on this. The Camon i4 comes with a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset clocked at 2-GHz combined with a Cortex A53 quad-core processor, which takes charge of the Camon i4’s performance. In the graphics department, you get A PowerVR GE8300 GPU to take care of the graphics. There’s also a 4GB variant that comes with a higher Helio P22 Chipset.
The Camon i4 comes with 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 256GB via a memory card. There are 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB variants.
Network And Connectivity
The new Tecno Camon i4 offers a variety of options for easy connectivity, which includes 4G with VoLTE (Voice Over LTE), Wi-Fi, mobile hotspot, micro-USB, GPS, Bluetooth, etc.
The Tecno Camon i4 ships with a 3500 mAh non-removable lithium-ion battery which means you get a battery that’s enough to last you 10 hours when used actively and about 36 hours when on standby

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
iPhone 11 – Is there anything left to announce?
It is still months before Apple unveil their next iPhone, but that has not done enough to avert the ton of leaks online.
The release for the iPhone 11 is set for September this year. Apart from the aesthetics and designs, not much is known about its specifications.
Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.
Here are the leaked photos. What do you think?
