Tecno Camon CM (aka Tecno Camon CMore) is the first mobile phone from Tecno that features 18:9 aspect ratio. This means that the display is elongated i.e. longer than the usual displays. Regular phones come with 16:9 aspect ratio. An 18:9 aspect ratio is achieved by minimizing the bezel areas (like the Samsung Galaxy S8 & the iPhone X) around the screen. In simple terms, a phone with 18:9 aspect ratio has a larger screen fitted in a small body. This is Tecno’s first attempt to prove that it can make near bezel-less devices. Here, you will find everything you need to know about the Tecno Camon CM and its price in Kenya.

Tecno Camon CM Specifications Review
Design & Display
The Camon CM is a slim phone with an elegant body that makes it look like a flagship device. This phone is 7.75mm thick. It comes with a 5.7 inches display with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1440 pixels screen resolution. Its 18:9 aspect ratio means that it is smaller than most phones with the same display size. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass (unspecified version).
This phone’s body is made from plastic with smooth finish. It looks like Tecno Spark K7 with smaller bezels. The fingerprint scanner is at the back, just below the camera. This phone is available in three different colors: mid-night black, champagne gold and city blue.
Tecno Camon CM: Hardware, Software & Performance
Inside the Tecno CM, there is a MediaTek MT6737 quad-core CPU clocking at 1.25Ghz that is supported by 2GB of RAM. These are good enough for multitasking but not ideal for gamers or people who run intensive apps on their phones. Hopefully, Tecno will release a 3GB RAM/32 ROM GB version (or better) of the CM later. Overall, this a phone that you can use for your day to day tasks without any problems.
The Camon CM runs on Android v7.0 Nougat out-of-the box. Again, this is a little disappointing since Android v8.0 Oreo is already out. Android OS is customized with Tecno’s own user interface, the HiOS 2.0.
The Tecno Camon CM has 16GB on board storage. If you require more storage space, you can use a memory card of up to 128GB.
Tecno Camon series phones are known for their outstanding cameras. The CM is no exception. This phone has the same camera profile as the Tecno Camon CX Air. It features a 13MP rear camera and a 13MP front facing camera. The rear camera has a quad LED flash for low light photography. The front shooter has a single soft LED flash.
If you are keen about buying a good looking 4G phone under 15K with good cameras, the Tecno CM should definitely be at the top your list.
The Camon CM comes with a 3000mAh battery. Although this is a little smaller than the 3200mAh battery on Tecno Camon CX, it can easily power the phone through a full day of moderate use.
