Tecno Camon 12 Vs Tecno Camon 11

Let’s see what we got here, it’s a battle between Tecno Camon 11 and Tecno Camon 12. I have done a touch in the first paragraphs of this article concerning Tecno Camon 12 review and a full specification review, so I am sure you have got a clear mind about Camon 12. Tecno Camon 11, however, was released in late 2018, November to be specific. It’s a full year now so again I assume you know quite a few things about it.

However, I will compare and contrast the two Camon series giants to see which one you should consider buying. Is it the new Camon 12 or you are retaining your Camon 11? I will show you the strength and weaknesses of these two so you can decide on your own. Note that this shall be a summary of both specifications as shown in the last part of this article. Both devices were announced with Mediatek Helio CPUs, 6.2-inch notch HD+ display, dual rear cameras, Android 8.1 (Oreo), and up to 6GB RAM.
