Tecno launched three smartphones in its Camon lineup including the Camon 16, Camon 16 Pro and Camon 16 Premier, in Kenya last month. The brand didn’t reveal the specifications of the first two devices at the time of the launch. However, Tecno has now introduced the standard Camon 16 in the Indian market.
The smartphone arrives as the successor to the Camon 15, which was launched earlier this year in February. The latest launch is the most affordable smartphone in the country offering a 64MP camera and a punch-hole display. The Tecno Camon 16 will compete against the likes of Realme 6i (review) and Redmi Note 9 (review) in the sub-Rs 12k price segment.
