    The new Tecno Camon C9 is The Selfie beast.

    The Tecno camon C9, the new brainchild of Tecno mobile, has been labelled the best selfie phone in the world. It is being compared with the iPhone 6s Plus and the Samsung s6 edge in terms of picture quality.

    There is no surprise in this as how many smartphones in this generation can boast of a whopping 13 Megapixels front camera?

    Well, Tecno mobile has made it possible and they are here to take the market by storm with this timely and mind-blowing upgrade on the Tecno camon series.

    After several months of anticipation, the TECNO C9, which flaunts a dual 13.0MP high definition low-light cameras and the company’s first eye scanner technology, was finally launched on June 17, 2016.

    Now, potential customers and fans of the brand will finally get to know what’s in the offering.

    The CAMON C9 smartphone is an upgrade to its predecessors CAMON C8 and C5 respectively which were released in the second quarter of 2015.

    It sports a similar design with the Tecno Camon C8 but with many improvements over the former.


    The smartphone, as you would expect, is beautiful, sleek and slim; you won’t find a better all-rounder. The ultra slim body is made of metal frame built around a leather textured curvy plastic body unlike the blocky candy bar design associated the C8.

    The phones dimension is 153mm by 76.4mm by 10.35mm.

    This build makes it slimmer and lighter than the Camon C8. Hence it is easier to hold, carry about, operate with one hand and slide into a pocket.

    You have the opportunity to choose from a myriad of colours champagne gold, sandstone black and pearl white. Cool!

    The 3.5mm earphone jack is at the top of the phone, while the micro-USB port is at the bottom.

    At the top of the front side is the centrally placed front camera (a whopping 13 megapixels) with a speaker grill just above it.

    In case you don’t know, the front camera also has an LED flash of its own sitting on the left side of the top screen.

    Still in the front, the menu buttons are located at the bottom of the phone, right below the screen (android style).

    On the flip side, there’s a 13MP rear camera at the top, with its flash just beneath it.

    If you’re a device nerd, then the “big eye” look of the front-facing sensor will remind you of the HTC Desire Eye.

    The second speaker is situated at the bottom of the flip side.

    Like the Phantom 5, the Tecno Camon C9 also has a fingerprint recognition sensor embedded below its rear camera.

    This fingerprint sensor has one of the fastest response time and false rejection rate compared to some high-end devices, with little or no error margin.

    In real life use, this is pretty true and the accuracy of the sensor has a score of about 98%.

    The volume and power keys are located on the right lower side of the phone and there is also a dedicated camera (shutter) button close to the bottom of the right side.

    Tecno C9 features a massive 5.5-inch IPS capacity touchscreen like most phablets in the smartphone market.

    It is massive but holding it in one hand is not a struggle as initially iterated.

    It has a resolution of 1920*1080 pixels and pixel density of 404 PPI, which is far more than the human eye (300PPI) recognises. This phone is as close to a portable smart TV as possible.

    Overlying the capacitive touch screen is a protective corning gorilla glass 3 with scratch resistance capability.

    This is great news for slippery hands like myself since this device can survive more falls, impacts, and hits before it finally gives way.


    The best moments in life are often spontaneous and unplanned. And our ability to capture these moments in detail- in its full glory and colour- is the essence of quality living.

    The CAMON C9 is the epitome of this fact as it features a camera smartphone that literally allows users to capture time with every click of the shutter button.

    The quality of the camera on both sides is the same as a professional camera and if you love photographs, you must choose the Camon C9.

    The C9 mounted camera module features 13 megapixels on both front and back camera with advanced noise reduction technology and automatic portrait beauty treatment.

    The 83° wide-angle 13MP front camera takes wider views than its predecessor. Moreover, the front camera holds more people than a usual smartphone selfie, and it’s 20% wider than Samsung S6 edge. The front camera takes 120° panoramic view and can shoot 10 people together.

    Compared to Camon C8, Camon C9 has one more lens, filters 50% more parasitic light and obtains 16% improvement colour reproduction.

    In fact, the camera’s sensitive area is 15% wider than that on iPhone 6s Plus and 35% than Samsung S6 edge. You need to try out this cool camera to understand why I am so excited about these figures.

    In addition, the camera’s built-in abilities enables the Tecno Camon C9 to enhance photos automatically and create professionally retouched images.

    There are 8 makeup styles for transforming and beautifying pictures. 6 options are provided to edit pictures, including filter, rotating, cutting, blurring, moderating and mosaic.

    And there is a powerful night mode that enables you to take vivid and bright photos at night.

    The phablet is powered by 64 bit Octa-core MediaTek processor running at a speed of 1.3GHz.

    This processor can do more work compares to a dual core with significant improvement in the battery life.

    The processor is closely backed up by 2GB of RAM – built to give you a smooth multitasking experience.

    It ships with 16 GB internal memory and an expandable Micro SD slot, up to 128GB.

    This implies that there is room for more content, in the form of apps, games, and multimedia, that users can store on this device.


    The Tecno Camon C9 runs the latest version of Android software, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, out of the box.

    The Os is customised to use Tecno’s User Interface, HiOS V1.0.

    This is similar to other smartphone brands including Samsung’s Android user interface- Touchwiz & Huawei’s Emotion UI.

    This customised Interface is meant to provide a personal and user-friendly experience.

    You get to organise your display screen as you please and choose the preferred site wide theme for your device.


    A 3,000mAh battery powers the Tecno C9.

    Tecno as assured customers that they don’t need a power bank for this smartphone due to its efficient Ultra Power Mode. The Tecno C9 can run for a whole day following a complete charging cycle.

    The 3,000mAh battery will allow the user to takes up to 75,000 Photos continuously; play Videos up to 6.5 Hours continuously and keep the phone on standby for up to 200 Hours.

    This power technology is almost equivalent to that of a military mini computer. Cheers!

    Forget Apple’s Siri, Samsung’s S voice and any other form of voice recognition.

    When it comes to phone lock security, nothing compares to the Eyeball Unlock that C9 has to offer.

    The C9 is equipped with the latest eyeball recognition technology to encrypt or unlock your phone.

    This security feature is comparable to that of a James bond movie or the Age of Ultron Avenger’s movie.
