A number of Ugandan celebrities including musicians, news anchors, comedians among others have been seen pre-ordering for the forthcoming coming TECNO Camon 16 which is scheduled to be launched in the country later this month.
Pre-orders are at UGX50,000 for a phone that will probably cost about a million Ugandan Shillings. The phone can be pre-ordered from any TECNO stores around Kampala as per our knowledge. In our opinion, the price of pre-order is fair enough and so affordable. However, knowing the actual price of the phone should be considered before making the pre-order to avoid any inconvenience after the phone has been launched and available for sale.
Notably, the Camon 16 series has already been formally announced early in the month of September and comes in the Camon 16, Camon 16 Pro, and Camon 16 Premier. The phones is already already available in countries like Kenya, Nigeria. The delay in distribution is because of the pandemic, coronavirus.
The phone is rumored to be classy, and luxurious succeeding the Camon 15. It comes with upgrades including; four cameras on the back and two on the front, with the Premier sporting a Helio G90T chipset and a 4,500 mAh battery (and a fast charging supporting for the Premier version).
The front panel of the Camon 16 Premier has a tall 6.9” Full HD+ screen with 90Hz refresh rate and a pill-shaped punch hole for the dual selfie cameras (48 MP main + 8 MP ultrawide). It is an LCD, meaning the fingerprint scanner made its way on the side, under the power key.
On the back the Premier has a 64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor as a main camera, accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide-angle snapper, and two 2MP units to assist night photos, and Portraits.
In some photos seen, noticeably, there is a rear fingerprint sensor at the back of the phones. In contrast, the Premier model had a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
We’re not so certain about the full specs of the phones, however, will update you after the launch of the phones.
