Design and Display

In addition, several new color options enhance the appearance of the phone, and(while) the front screen has fine bezels that help enhance the screen viewing experience.

On the plus side, you will have a 6.6 inches tall HD+ IPS LCD panel on the front, including a protective Corning Gorilla glass liner, while a small perforated hole for selfie camera appears in the upper left corner as usual.

Memory and Internal

As we mentioned earlier, the TECNO Camon 15 Air comes with HIOS 6.0 based on the Android 10 interface offers a variety of features to improve the overall user experience, and the simple design of the app format looks quite surprising.

On the same note, the company implemented a 12 nm based architecture octa-core Mediatek Helio P22 SoC coupled with the PowerVR GE8320 graphics card. With this setting, you will get clocking speeds of up to 2.0 GHz to expand your phone’s potential.

Now, speaking of storage, 3GB of RAM is paired with an internal storage of 64 GB and also has received an add-on secondary storage space, which is a dedicated microSD card slot solution.

Camera

The main camera configuration includes a quad-camera port on which you will see a 48 MP primary shooter along with double 2 MP macro and 2MP depth lenses next to the AI-based QVGA lens. Several functions of the camera include 1080p recording, HDR images, panorama, etc.

At the front, an 8 MP selfie installed in a cutout section features a 1080p video recording capability that sums up the quality of videos. In addition, there are built-in AI features to improve overall image quality. Moreover, the face unlocks feature counts on the 8MP selfie camera for quick access.

Battery and Others

The 5000 mAh battery having a micro-USB port provides enough battery power for regular heavy to moderate use. It has energy-saving software to reduce consumption and extend the battery life cycle. But, the real story will reveal itself after a few months, when it is not able to sustain the initial characteristics.

In terms of communication and sensors, the company did not lack regular port support, but you can expect a sensor or cutting edge communication here, as it is a basic device. Camon 15 Air does not offer water-resistant support and comes with a price tag of around $ 165 (12,000 INR).
