Yesterday, OEM company Tecno officially launched its latest device, the Tecno Camon C9, into the Nigerian market. the device has 13.0megapixel (mp) back/front camera phone with autofocus low-light cameras and dual LED flash and all new HiOS v1.0 user interface.

Tecno’s second generation custom UI built on android’s revolutionary marshmallow 6.0 backbone, the new Camon C9 closes in on the ever fading gap between premium camera phones and budget DSLR cameras.

Speaking at the launch, Chidi Okonkwo, managing director, Tecno Telecoms Limited, said: “I am talking about such features as wide angle image capture technology which allows the user to capture five times more depth in every picture and shoots a ten-man size group selfie in one click of the shutter button- no image cuts.

“Also, the Tecno Camon C9 brings the much awaited iris scan technology to the fore as a smartphone feature. This means you can lock your Tecno Camon C9 with a simple scan of your eyes over an embedded iris biometric scanner-simple brilliant!

“Other standout features of the Tecno Camon C9 are the first-of-its-kind 13mp center-placed selfie camera, with autofocus low-light and LED natural flash, the highly optimized new v1.0 user interface (UI) built on the android marshmallow 6.0 backbone.”

Attai Oguche, marketing and PR lead, Tecno Telecoms Limited, added: “The Tecno Camon C9 raises the specs bar for high-end camera features so much highrt the phone is easily dubbed the most disruptive camera smartphone in the market.”
