Tecno Camon 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 too much of a struggle.

Another exciting feature of the smartphone is the  Full HD screen, with a pixel density of 404 PPI, which is more than the human eye (300PPI) recognizes. This phone is very close to a portable smart TV.

Hardware & Memory

The phablet has an octa-core Mediatek processor running at a speed of 1.3GHz with an improved 2GB of RAM – built to give you a smooth multitasking. It ships with 16 GB internal memory and an expandable Micro SD slot, up to 128GB.

This is more than enough to carry out all your day to day activities and still have enough left for some videos,

Battery Life

This is another selling point of the Tecno Camon C9 with its 3,000mAh battery.

Tecno claims you don’t need a power bank for this smartphone due to its efficient Ultra Power Mode.

This will allow the user to takes up to 75,000 Photos continuously, Plays Videos up to 6.5 Hours continuously and  standby time can of up to 200 Hours.

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


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.


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


In addition, the front camera takes 120° panoramic view and shoots 10 people altogether. Just like the Iphone 6, the camera abilities of the Tecno Camon C9 enables it to enhance photos automatically and create professionally retouched images.

Security Features

Forget Siri, or any other form of voice recognition.

When it comes to lock security to the fullest 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, security performance comparable to national security or James bond, thousands of times without a recognition error for your mobile security escort.

    Does the C9 have a wonderful camera performance? Yes! Does it look really trendy? Yes. Does it perform as well as it is advertised? Definitely, yes. For me, the C9 is all these and more. One aspect I love so much is the lid effect when the flip is closed and the clock displays for some seconds. It’s really so cool. Tecno has outdone itself this time. There was a brief spell when the camera images weren’t stored up after snapping. I guess that was resolved after an OTA upgrade. Now I know what it means to have a functional phone and I’m not kidding about what I said. If you’re looking for an excuse to buy a costlier phone, then think again. The camon C9 is affordable and performs better than the costliest phones out there. I bought mine at N60,000 in September, 2016 in Keffi Nasarawa State. I think that’s fair compared to the price advertised for the phone.
