Tecno Mobile is introducing the Tecno Camon 16 series to markets in which it has operations. Tecno’s Camon 15 series was launched somewhere in March 2020 during the heavy lockdown.
It is unknown how well the Camon 15 performed in sales, although the cheaper Spark 5 seemed to have gain comparatively more grounds.
Nevertheless, Tecno and the Transsion group as a whole, is pushing forward to have their devices in the hands of more people.
Tecno’s camera focused devices, the Camon series is back – this time, with different variants at different price ranges and an almost similar design.
There are three phones in Tecno’s Camon 16 lineup. These include:
- Tecno Camon 16
- Tecno Camon 16 Pro and
- Tecno Camon 16 Premier
Currently, only the full specs of the Tecno Camon 16 Premier has been made available. However, we do know that all the 3 smartphones will have a Quad-camera setup at the rear and a dual selfie camera setup.

Features of Tecno Camon 16 Premier
At the rear of the Camon 16 is the 64 MP Sony IMX686 main sensor camera, which together with the 8 MP ultrawide-angle camera, and two 2 MP cameras complete the quad setup.
Tecno Mobile has set up the camera in a way to make it an all rounder. It is not only good for general photography, but also takes above average night photos and Portraits.
Some very notable new features of the camera are:
- AI Beautification for the perfect Dark Skin
- a 119° Anti-distortion Super Wide Angle Rear Lens
- Intelligent Recognition, Automatic Switching 105°Ultra, Wide Angle Mode
- Ultra Night Portrait
- 10X Hybrid Zoom
- Super HIS Aerial-camera-level Stabilization
- 4K Video
The Camon 16 Premier is powered by a 4500mAh battery, an upgrade over it’s predecessor.
The phone should be able to take advantage of Android 10’s good power management system and it appears Tecno will this time look at the software side of things when it comes to power management – hello HiOS.
Also, since the phone supports 33W fast-charging, you will not have to worry about overnight charging. According to Tecno, 33W flash charge greatly cuts down the charging time – 30 minutes charging reaches to 70% power.
The Camon 16 Premier runs on the MTK G90T chipset. This is as close as a chipset can get to the flagship line in MediaTek chips.
Some AnTuTu tests have given the MediaTek Helio G90T a total score of around 280,000 points. This puts it at a level higher than the Snapdragon 730G.
What these results mean is that the Camon 16 should be able to run a lot of your multi tasking needs and will also be good with gaming.
Coupled with the 8GB of RAM, the smartphone is set to be very usable – less lag, more performance, more multitasking.
