The Tecno Camon 16 was announced in October 2020 and launched later the same month. It is a budget smartphone from Tecno with a good blend of features and cost-effectiveness.

Design and Build
The Tecno Camon 16 has a glass front, plastic frame and plastic back which is to be expected at its price point. The back is plastic with a camera mount bump at the centre which houses the quad-camera setup.
The colour options available are Cloud White, Purist Blue and Misty Grey. The Tecno Camon 16 is a big smartphone at 170.9 x 77.2 x 9.2 mm in size and weighs in at 207g so might not be so comfortable to the smaller hands.
The screen is huge at 6.8″ IPS LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels and approximately 83.2% screen-to-body ratio. The pixels density is quite low at only 263ppi, so considering how big the screen is the images are not as sharp as one would expect.
User Interface and Performance
The Camon 16 is shipped with a custom UI, HIOS 6.0 which is built on top of Android 10 and should be upgradeable to Android 11. It comes with a Mediatek Helio G70 (12 nm) chipset with an Octa-core CPU (2×2.0 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6×1.7 GHz Cortex-A55); and a Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU. The phone has an option of 64GB and 128GB of storage both with 4GB RAM making it quite handy in multitasking and has a dedicated microSDXC slot if you need extra space.
The camera setup on the Tecno Camon 16 consists of the main camera that is a quad with a 64 MP, 26mm (wide), 1/1.73″, 0.8µm, PDAF, 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro), 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) and a 2 MP. It has a Penta-LED flash which supports HDR and panorama. The selfie camera is a single 16 MP, (wide) with AF which also supports HDR and a Dual-LED flash.
The Tecno Camon 16 records videos using the rear or main camera at 1440p@30fps. The selfie or front camera records video at 1080p@30fps.
Connectivity and Features
The Tecno Camon 16 comes with dual SIM slots using nano-SIM and supports dual standby which will help most usage. It also supports wireless LAN Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct and hotspot. The Bluetooth is version 5.0 with A2DP and LE, to connect to a host of devices. Has GPS with A-GPS. It however lacks NFC connectivity which is a bummer as reduces automation. It supports USB Type-C 2.0 and USB On-The-Go.
The highlight of any modern smartphone features for a mid-ranger is accelerometer, proximity and compass and the Tecno Camon 16 has all of these. It also comes with FM Radio support and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The Tecno 16 Premier has a non-removable battery with a capacity of Li-Po 5000mAh non-removable battery and supports fast charging at 18W which Tecno claims can charge 50% in 30mins. It however does not support wireless charging.
