Tecno is a rather unknown name in the Nepalese smartphone market. However, it ranks among the big players when it comes to the African market. In 2008, the company stopped its operation in the Asian market to focus on the African market. It made a return to Asia almost a decade later in 2017. And now, it is looking to enter the Nepali market with the Tecno Camon 15 series. So, let’s take a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Tecno Camon 15 and Camon 15 Pro in Nepal.

Tecno Camon 15 Overview

Design and Display

The first thing you notice on the Tecno Camon 15 is the punch-hole display. Its circular cutout is at the top left corner of the 6.6-inch display. The panel sports a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. Tecno calls it the “Perfect Fullview Display”. On the back, the device flaunts a stunning gradient design.

Performance and Memory

Under the hood, Tecno Camon 15 features an octa-core Helio P22 SoC with a clock speed of up to 2.0 GHz. The device comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Camera

The highlight of the phone is its camera setup. It has four cameras on the back that are arranged linearly inside a rectangular module. A 48MP primary camera has a 1/2″ sensor. It combines four pixels into a 1.6micon pixel to obtain high-quality images. The second camera is the Ultra-Night TAIVOS lens. TAIVOS is the company’s AI-based optimization solution. Tecno claims that it will help capture clear shots under low light. Similarly, the rest of the camera includes a 2cm macro lens and a depth sensor. Since it’s advertised as a night-time camera phone, it is equipped with not one but four LED flashes.

On the front, there is a 16MP camera with support for HDR. There is a dual-LED flashlight on the front to help you take better selfies in dark.

Battery and Others

The whole setup gets its juice from a 5,000mAh battery. Sadly, there is no information about the charging speed and fast charging support. It’s safe to believe that it doesn’t support any fast charging technology. For biometrics, there is a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the back. It also supports Face Unlock. It runs on Android 10 with HiOS 6.0 on the top.

Tecno Camon 15 Pro Overview

Design and Display

Tecno Camon 15 Pro features the same 6.6-inch Perfect Full-View Display. However, the front camera is now hidden using a pop-up mechanism. As a result, the smartphone boasts a screen to body ratio of 91.2% and an aspect ratio is 19:5:9.

Performance and Memory

The smartphone features an octa-core Helio P35 processor with a clock speed of up to 2.3Ghz. It comes with 6GB of RAM so you won’t have a problem getting through the day to day tasks. Similarly, the internal storage on this one is 128GB.

Camera

Tecno has replaced the depth senor on the Camon 15 with an ultra-wide-angle camera with 115-degree Field of View. The rest of the cameras remain unchanged, including the 48MP primary camera and the Ultra Night Lens. Within the native camera app, you get a short video recording feature that lets you record 15s/60s Tiktok-like videos with 9 different in-built filters.

Battery and Others

The battery capacity is reduced to 4,000mAh battery and still, there is no sign of fast-charging. The security-options include rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and face unlock feature. It ships with HiOS based on Android 10.
