TECNO CAMON 16 PREMIER SPECIFICATIONS
The Tecno Camon 16 Premier, just like the other siblings, is powered by the MediaTek Helio G90T chipset. This chipset is one of the better offerings in the company’s LTE Helio G series and brings a gaming pedigree. This chipset runs with two ARM Cortex-A76 cores plus six power-efficient Cortex A-55 cores featuring a large L3 cache. It has a powerful Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU. There’s 8GB’s of RAM and 128GB of Internal Storage to go on with.
The device flaunts a 6.9-inch Full HD+ display with a very nice 90Hz refresh rate and a pill-shaped punch hole. The cutout comprises dual selfie cameras – A 48MP main plus an 8MP ultra-wide snapper. The handset uses an LCD and for that reason; the fingerprint scanner is sitting on the side doubling as a power key.
Moving around to the back, we have a Quad-Camera setup sitting on a square-ish camera module. The main camera is a 64MP Sony IMX686 and we also have an 8MP ultrawide-angle snapper. There are two additional 2MP units for Night Photos and Portraits. The phone boasts a very capable 4,500mAh battery complete with a generous 33W fast-charging.
If you’re familiar with Chinese smartphone makers, you’ve probably heard of Transsion Holdings’ name. The giant conglomerate is behind popular smartphone brands like Infnix and Tecno. Devices under this brand may not be as popular as Oppo, Xiaomi, or Huawei handsets. However, both Tecno and Infinix brands are achieving good results in emerging markets from Africa and Asia.
