Taking after its predecessor; the Camon C9, Tecno mobile have brought a new and improved device named the Camon CX. I thought of it, why would it be CX when the predecessor was C9 then I remembered X=10. So I just got stuck with CX.

The device was launched at the Safari park hotel, Nairobi. Kenya on the 23rd of march 2017.

We had a chance to get a hold of the phone at the office, unbox and give our first impressions of the device.

Opening up the Tecno Camon CX, it was light at hand and even when put into the case it was also lightweight. The Camon CX is nicely packaged; both the phone and its accessories, I definitely can’t wait to explore its alleged specifications.
