Dimensions & Body

The phone spans across 6.48 x 3.01 x 0.35 inches and is 9 millimeters thick. The body is composed of plastic which makes it really light in weight.


The smartphone's 6.6-inch display has a 266-pixel-per-inch density with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. Featuring an IPS LCD multi-touch screen with significantly wider off-axis viewing angles. The IPS LCD displays brighter visuals, reduces blurriness, and offers better outdoor viewing than the popular AMOLED panels.  

The display has no buttons and the tiniest bezels, giving in an 83 percent screen-to-body ratio. This screen size is adequate for watching your favorite movies, shows, and playing video games.


The TECNO CAMON 17 has a triple vertical rear camera system, which is becoming the norm in the smartphone industry. It contains a primary camera with a resolution of 64 megapixels and two additional cameras with a resolution of 2 megapixels, each. The secondary camera is a depth sensor and the tertiary camera assists the primary with its auto-focus functionality. An LED flash complements the camera system, allowing for a high dynamic range (HDR) and continuous photos with a resolution of 9000 x 7000 pixels.

You can shoot a Full High Definition (FHD) 1080 pixels video at 30 frames per second (fps), with the main camera.

Tecno has also eliminated the obnoxious camera notch on the display in favor of a punch-hole display to accommodate the 16-megapixel front camera with a complementary dual-LED flash, for all your stunning selfies and video calls.


With a 5000 mAh battery, the phone is ought to include a fast proprietary charger to expedite the charging process. It can go for a long period without being charged and gives you the best user experience without you being glued to the power socket. It can take up to two hours to charge from 0% to 100%, thanks to the proprietary fast charger that comes in the box.


The phone comes equipped with one of the best processors available, the MediaTek Helio G85, popularly known as the HyperEngine power for gaming. The finest graphics are enabled by a 64-bit architecture, 4GB/6GB RAM, and an Octa-Core CPU.


It boasts dual speakers for outstanding music quality and, unlike other smartphone brands; it has not abandoned the 3.5mm headphone port.


The phone is surprisingly lightweight, despite having such a sophisticated internal system. It has a 128 GB internal storage capacity that can be upgraded up to 256GB, externally. This will allow you to save a large amount of data without having to worry about a pop-up window telling you to "clear your phone storage."


Let us peak into what is on the inside, which is software.  Android 11, a new operating system that was announced in 2020, runs on the TECNO CAMON. HiOS 7.6 is also included, which was developed specifically for TECNO phones to improve performance and include features such as a launcher, private safe, and split screen.

Empowered with a refresh rate of 90Hz, it can now display images 90 times per second, resulting in significant image quality and stability improvements.


The phone holds up to 2 Nano Sim cards and provides access to 4G technology and VoLTE. It is enabled by Wi-Fi v.802.11 and is also capable of providing mobile hotspot, with the help of Bluetooth v5.0. It facilitates A-GPS, as well.


The front camera's facial recognition feature and the fingerprint sensor on the rear are the two ways to unlock your phone. When contrasted to the outdated password method, this adds additional layers of security.

A final round up on the phone’s specifications suggests that, this phone is an absolute bang for your buck. It gives you the best of the best features at an affordable price tag. The hardware and the software flow together in harmony, to offer the best user experience possible. It is truly one of the most powerful smartphones out there.
