In addition, the bezels are really fine for an unprecedented viewing experience. Check out the recently launched Tecno Spark Go 2020.

Memory and Internal

Speaking of performance, the phone is powered by the MediaTek MT6785 Helio G90T chipset, which gives an 11% jump in overall performance over the previous generation G90 processor. Mediatek G90T is a next level octa-core processor equipped with Mali-G76 MC4 GPU for extreme level games and smooth application operation. On the other hand, the device is made to run on HiOS 6.0 based on Android 10 OS, providing a fluent, clean, and smooth experience, along with sufficient proprietary features.

When it comes to storage, there is only one variant at the moment that is 8 GB of RAM with 128 GB of internal storage. In addition, a dedicated external SD can be inserted to further expand storage.


The camera department the Camon 16 Premier has a square camera configuration on the rear side, a 64 MP wide-angle main camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens which can capture 119 degrees photos, a 2 MP depth sensor for shooting videos with a bokeh effect, and lastly, a 2MP video lens for capturing enhanced videos at night. In addition, there are several built-in functions such as AR Emoji 3.0 for fun, Beauty mode, 10x hybrid zoom for close-up photos, 960 fps video, and more. The camera is powered by Tecno’s own TAIVOS AI technology, which works to improve performance and image quality.

The front camera automatically switches to the ultra-wide mode when recognizing a group of people. To ensure that you get better selfies in the dark, the company provides a double flash on the front.

Battery and Others

With a 33W fast charger, the 4500 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery can charge up to about 70% in 30 minutes according to the company, so you don’t need to wait long to charge the phone and the phone can work for all day with mid uses. To control the heating, the company installed a heat-dissipating tube that can lower the temperature by two degrees while the device is being charged. The Tecno Camon 16 Premier is sold for a price of around $270 (19,900 INR), which is quite attractive for flagship features.
