Tecno Camon 12 Pro: Classic Design and Display
In normal classic design patterns, the Camon 12 Pro is a rectangular shaped shape with a 6.4-inches display. It has circular corners that makes it comfortable for one-hand operation. The body is made mostly of plastic with the screen covered with glass. Unfortunately, there’s no aluminum considering most smartphones from this price segment offers superior build up quality. However, the plastic panel is good sometimes as it makes the phone to be lightweight, while metal can only make it more substantial.
The Camon 12 Pro is narrow too, with an 18:9 aspect ratio which is norm on modern smartphones. The screen fills the phone’s entire front panel, although there are little bezels at the edges especially on the bottom area . On the front, there’s a teardrop notch which houses the selfie camera. Unfortunately, the Tecno Camon 12 Pro comes in only Dawn Blue color option.
The rear panel is very glossy and stylish. There’s a vertical triple rear camera that is accompanied by a LED flash. Amazingly, there’s no fingerprint scanner on the rear as usual with normal mid-range smartphones, instead, Tecno optioned for an in-display fingerprint scanner which is the latest and only found in Tecno Phantom 9, and other flagship devices.

However, we aren’t surprised at Camon 12 Pro’s camera quality as Tecno Camon Series is known to be camera-centric, and this Camon 12 delivers perfectly at that. This phone’s camera can take more stunning natural photos than you can ever imagine. The bokeh photo effect is what marvels us as the camera identifies the main subject, and blurs the image’s background.
The waterdrop notch on the front panel of Camon 12 Pro houses the 32-MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. The camera also comes with AI Beauty mode which beautifies the selfie perfectly.
