The much-awaited Tecno Camon 18 series is likely to launch soon, but key specifications of the upcoming lineup have already been revealed. Last year, Tecno made notable progress in the low-priced and mid-range smartphone segment. The company’s Camon 17 series was received well as it offered a mammoth display, long battery life, and sufficiently good camera configuration.
Now, the next generation Camon 18 series has surfaced on the web, giving us a glimpse of its outward appearance. Some previously leaked photos give us a clearer view of the phone’s triple camera setup. Aside from that, it showcases the phone’s classy chrome colors. The phone is tipped to arrive sometime this month with an impressive 60x zoom. In collaboration with the company’s AI TAIVOS technology, the 60x zoom will deliver unparalleled high-quality photos.
Tecno Camon 18 Series Design
The Tecno Camon 18 series adopts a highly appealing design, featuring a flat rear panel. Furthermore, the edges are square-shaped which complements the phone’s flat screen. Aside from that, there’s a punch-hole cutout on the display to house the front shooter. However, the front shooter opening appears slightly smaller as compared to the selfie cam opening on the predecessor, the Camon 17 series. The right-hand side houses a large power button.

Moreover, the images obtained by GSM Arena show the phone in light blue and dark blue colors. According to the publication, Tecno will introduce more color options after the phone goes official. The rear-mounted triple camera setup houses 16-135mm equivalent lenses, along with apertures of f/1.6-3.5. As mentioned earlier, the camera module displays a hybrid 60x zoom, which is likely to support image stabilization. Regrettably, details about the actual camera sensors are still scarce.
Other Leaked Details & Speculations
According to a report from TechnoSports, the Tecno 18 Camon Premier will pack a powerful MediaTek Helio G96 SoC under the hood. On the downside, this power-packed processor will reportedly lack 5G support. However, the publication did not confirm whether the same processor will power up the entire Tecno Camon 18 series. Furthermore, the fingerprint scanner will be available on the side edge for easier access. The fingerprint scanner will also serve as the power button.
Aside from that, the Tecno Camon 18 Series could come running Android 11 OS out-of-the-box with HiOS 7.6 on top. To recall, Tecno has had an Android 12 Developer Preview Program, which implies that the company could roll out the latest Android 12 for the lineup in the near future. The phone could go on sale in light-blue and blue-gray color options. However, more colors will be introduced later.
Details about the Camon 18 series’ storage configurations are still few and far between. Moreover, the lineup is likely to hit the store shelves sometime this month. Tecno has remained mum on the exact launch date for the series.Likewise, the company has refrained from divulging information about the phone’s pricing and availability. Nevertheless, more shreds of information is likely to surface online ahead of the series’ official unveiling.
