What to expect from the Tecno Camon CX and CX Air Launch this month

You must have read so much about the upcoming Tecno Camon CX from a number of Kenyan blogs. Basically, by now you probably know what to expect from TECNO when the device is finally launched on Thursday, March 23rd.

We have already received an invite for the global launch, expected to take place at the Safari Park Hotel.  Interesting that TECNO mobile chose Kenya for the global launch. This shows the huge steps the country is slowly making the tech scene.


Different leaked design concepts and specifications have already flooded the internet and there is no doubt that the Camon CX is the most anticipated device among smartphone users in Kenya and Africa.

Well, we loved the Camon C9 which was launched in June last year. The strong selling point for the CP was the 13MP front camera with LED flash. The rear camera was also 13MP and both of them were optimized for low light photography and took some pretty good pictures in the dark thanks to its F/2.0 lens, which allowed it to have faster shutter speeds.
