Tecno Camon C9 Unboxing + Quick Hands-On Review [Photos]

Tecno Mobile, a few days back, launched a new smartphone to its line of Canon Camon smart phones.

Just as it’s predecessor, the Tecno Camon C9 is being marketed as a camera smart phone and that even reflects in the packaging of the device.

Over the past few weeks, we shared leaked images and specs of the Tecno Camon C9 which turned out to be accurate and thankfully, we now have the device in our hands and we’d ask that you join us in unboxing the Tecno Camon C9.

The Packaging

Tecno, lately, doesn’t just focus on the smartphone design, they also tend to focus on the packaging too. The Boom J8 had a really nice packaging and the Camon C9 isn’t less.

The packaging consists of two packs featuring three major colors; Black, Blue and silver.

On top of the pack is a kinda design that resembles that of a camera lens which we believe, is what the smartphone is channeled at. The pack can be detached from the main blue pack containing all that Tecno has to offer with the Camon C9.

There’s really nothing at the sides of the smartphone except for the Tecno brand stated at all sides of the black and silver color pack.

At the bottom of the pack are the usual suspects; the phone’s specs, a label containing information on the phone’s color variant, IMEI number and a few other information that you probably shouldn’t care about.

More On The Tecno Camon C9 Smartphone

Back to the main subject matter which is the Tecno Camon C9 smart phone itself, the device is available in three basic color variants. However, we have the sandstone black color variant here at TechsNG.

The front facing 13 megapixels camera is located at the top-center part of the screen while the front facing flash is at the top-left side of the screen. Same line with the camera placement.

Looking at the sides of the device, you have the vol+, vol- and the power buttons at the right side of the phone and on same right side, below actually, you have the camera shutter button just as seen on the Camon C8.

On the left side of the smart phone, there are no buttons there.

You have the charging part at the bottom of the phone and in that same region, Tecno didn’t disappoint by placing the microphone there (where else would the microphone be possibly placed?).

At the top of the smartphone, you have the 3.5mm Jack for you ear-phones and headphones and other than that, there’s nothing more in that region.

At the back of the device, you have the 13 megapixels rear camera at the center top and just after the camera, you have the LED flash. And just after the flash, you have the Tecno branding.

Before we move over to the quick hands-on review of the device, we’d like you to feed on these images below. The images, we believe, are self-explanatory.

Quick Hands-On Review Of The Tecno Camon C9

The smartphone, when i first held it, felt a little weighty.  Guess I have been accustomed to using light phones with screen sizes of about 5inch-. So, if you are a fan of 5.5inch phones with huge battery capacity, the tecno Camon C9 may not feel weighty to you. When compared with the infinix Hot 2 which is a 5-inch display smartphone, the hot 2 weighs heavier than the Camon C9.

The device has got a beautiful design with aluminum unibody at the sides. However, as you may have deduced from the images above, the back cover is actually made of plastic and it’s removable. The battery however, isn’t removable.

Although this isn’t a full review as a few review should be expected in a few days/weeks time, Tecno did well with the pouch. I’d rather term the pouch as a smart pouch. Why? Check through the images above again and expect a comprehensive detail on that while doing the full review.

If you have questions to ask regarding the Tecno Camon C9 smart phone, please feel free to use the comment session and we will reply as soon as we can.
