Tecno Camon 15 Overview
Tecno Camon 15 uses a plastic frame and plastic back with a glossy finish. It has a quad-camera setup on the rear along with a fingerprint sensor. Whereas, there’s a punch-hole on the front.
The design is quite different from the Pro version. The Pro version gets a pop-up camera design.
The Camon 15 has a 6.6 inches IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. The punch-hole design helps it achieve a screen-to-boy-ratio of 83.9% with 266 PPI density.
It’s quite a big display and they call it a Perfect Full View Display. The side bezels look thin but the chin is not as thin.
Tecno Camon 15 is using Mediatek Helio P22 chipset. It has an Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Along with it, it has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
Helio P22 is an old chipset that can be found on phones like Samsung Galaxy A10s.
This chipset is an entry-level budget chipset that can perform decently in terms of normal tasks like internet browsing and app browsing. But, it won’t run games with good framerate.
The phone is supposed to be priced at around 19k in Nepal. And, for the price, you can get phones with far superior performance.
Tecno Camon 15 has a quad-camera setup on the rear. It has a 48MP main sensor, a 2MP Macro lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a VGA AI sensor. They are calling it the TECNO AI vision optimization solution/Ultra night lens. So, it must help the main sensor to take better photos at night.
The 48MP sensor is not specified. And, it looks like the same sensor that is used on its pro version.
On the front, it has a 16MP camera for selfies with a 1080p 30fps video option.
Battery and OS
Tecno Camon 15 has a 5000 mAh battery which is 1000 mAh bigger than the battery on the Pro version. It doesn’t have support for fast charging.
Well, the phone should last for more than a day but charging won’t be quick due to the unavailability of fast charging.
Tecno Camon 15 is using HiOS 6.0 on top of Android 10.
Tecno Camon 15 Price in Nepal and Availability
Tecno Camon 15 is priced at INR. 11,599. So, we expect the Tecno Camon 15 price in Nepal to be around 18-19k.
Tecno Camon 15 looks very much like the new Vivo Y30 as they have the same design. The quad-camera setup looks okay and they have and additional AI lens for night shots. So it will be interesting to see how it stacks up against other phones.
|Model Name||Expected Price in Nepal||Availability in Nepal|
|Tecno Camon 15 (4/64GB)||~ Rs. 19999||Before the end of July.|
But, it’s chipset is not a good one. Helio P22 is an old processor that is found on the likes of old phones like Samsung A10s. So, why go for a phone with a disappointing performance when we can get Redmi Note 8 or Realme 5 for the same price?
