Over a couple of days, several devices have been leaked through the Google Play console before they are officially announced. This time, we got a glimpse of the next iteration of Tecno device expected to replace the good-old Tecno Camon 16. While the specs are a bit scanty at the moment, we just got almost everything we need from the leaked specs to know the amount of RAM it’ll have and the Soc that’ll power this handset.
Across the globe, Tecno Camon 17 might not elicit some excitement as is the case here in Kenya, the brand has grown to become a household name and most Kenyans actually love it for the price. During the Camon 16 event last year, the company unveiled a total of four devices, with some carrying iterations such as Premier, 16S, 16Pro and just Camon 16. And we do also expect the company to unveil a number of devices with almost similar specifications during the Tecno Camon 17 event.
From what has already been spotted on the Google Play Console, we now know exactly how the new devices are going to look like. From the leaked specs, Tecno Camon 17 will come with a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels at 320ppi, which is a little disappointing since we expected the company to move away from meagre resolutions to something above HD+.
Additionally, the handset will be powered by a MediaTek Helio G70 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM. This is inline with current trends and we are excited to see a decent amount of RAM that will be essential for those who intent to do lots of multitasking.
It’ll also come with android 11 under the hood, a vertically-aligned camera setup on the back, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3.5mm headphone. Although there’s some confusion on the size of battery, we expect the company to settle for a 5,000mAh battery.
