Tecno has come a long way since it started operations. Competing with the best in the world, the company has a presence in around 70 different countries. Over the course past few months, the company has been releasing some decent phones.

Take the Tecno Phantom V Fold for example. Even though the company still has a long way to go before it competes with the best in the world, the strides it is making are quite impressive. The Tecno Camon series is a testament to that and following its earlier success, the company is releasing the Tecno Camon 20 soon in Nepal.

The Camon 20 was launched in most countries in May and coming a bit late to Nepal. The smartphone has a lovely design with interesting colours to choose from. The phone also provides some specs that are unavailable in the expected price range like the in-display fingerprint sensor and many more.

Let us see what the smartphone provides.

Design and display

The Tecno Camon 20 has a beautiful design with three colour options to choose from. The Predawn Black and Glacier Glow colour options have a shiny matte plastic back with different shapes like triangles and rectangles of all angles.

The Serenity Blue colour option has a rubbery plastic feel much like vegan leather. It also includes the same different shapes as the other two colour options. Another colour option, the Art edition, has stitching along the inner lines and doodles. The colour option is unlikely to be available in Nepal.

The back of the phone features a triple camera setup within two rings. The upper ring houses the main camera, while the lower one contains the depth sensor and QVGA camera. This camera arrangement is enclosed in an oddly shaped pentagon, adding to the phone’s aesthetic appeal. On the front, there’s a hole-punch camera cutout for the selfie camera. The phone has thin bezels on the sides, while the top and bottom bezels are slightly thicker and equal in size.
