Techno Camon 16 Premier Unboxing and Review

I’m just kidding. They’re giving it away for free if you pre-order this guy before the 21st of September 2020, you know TECNO really wants you to pre-order because those who do pre-order get 10GB Data on any network of their choice for free. Anyway, I’ll leave the pre-order link in the description. In this post, I’ll be unboxing and giving you guys, my initial thoughts on this device, the TECNO Camon 16 Premier and we’ll talk a bit about how it compares to its predecessor, the Camon 15 Premier, and what TECNO is really trying to do here. Without further ado, let’s get to the post. All right guys so this is how the box of the Camon 16 Premier looks like, it’s pretty reminiscent of the box of the Camon 15 Premier’s box, except that it’s slightly taller. This is also the box of the HIPOD H2 wireless headphone which we’ll be unboxing in a bit. 


Inside the box, you get an inverted color mini box housing the paperwork and warranty cards and all. You also get a Manchester City case that has some clippable openings as well. Up next is the smartphone itself covered in a wrap that shows a highlight of the specs it comes with a 64MP quad-camera set up on the back and a 48MP dual set up in front which we’ll cover later, super post mode, ultra night mode, a big 6.9-inch screen and 33W fast charging Which is really jogging my memories here, kinda feels like I’ve seen this before. Hmmm. In terms of accessories, you do get a headphone and a USB C power cable with orange accents. I know I’m not the only one seeing that it does take a lot the inspiration from the previous device under Transsion I’ve reviewed. If not the same thing. Taking that wrap off of the Camon 16 Premier, you’re of course welcomed ta the device. 6.9 inches which is not small and as standard with these phones, you get a 1-minute start-up and set up time. There’s nothing at the top of the device, on the right side is the volume rocker and fingerprint reader slash power button which has pretty much become the norm and trend these days, you’ve got the standard dual sim slot at the left of the device, and of course, headphone jack, microphone port, a USB C port and the single firing speaker which you’ll definitely block. 


The bottom of the Camon 16 Premier is flat and it actually can stand on its own. Included as a special product is their new HiPods H2 wireless headphone. Taking the wraps off, there a faint text that shows some value proposition inscriptions, we get the user manual, a normal USB cable, eartips, and the headphone itself whose case is made out of plastic. The case of the headphone does feel sturdy and has some weight to it, which is fair and I like how the headphones are built. TECNO claims 30 hours of battery life on standby or when it’s idle and 6 hours of music playback. It should also take 2 hours to get fully charged. It’s touch-sensitive and also supports instant connection to your TECNO device. The headphones did sound fine because it’s of the in-ear kind, you do get some sound isolation, and sound quality with music was okay, just a little heavy bass but for the price of free, probably worth it. TECNO has ditched the pop-up selfie camera and straight protruded back camera array and a rear fingerprint sensor on the older Camon 15 Premier for a more subtle look now. On the back is where we get the 64MP quad-camera set up. Basically a 64MP main lens, 8 MP ultra-wide, Dual 2MP depth and low light sensors. 


The flash is a bit different it’s a 5 point flash and not a quad flash as we’ve previously seen. The back of the phone is polycarbonate and it kind of mimics glass because of the way it reflects the logo but its polycarbonate and I like the subtle gradient color. Speaking of color, TECNO hasn’t teased so much more than this one color option which is sort of a blue to silver gradient pattern. Which is particularly prone to a lot of smudges. Anyway, upfront is their dual 48MP camera set up and beside it, an 8MP wide-angle camera and an actual flash upfront. Quick explanation guys: The 64MP sensor is the Sony IMX 686 with pixel binning which basically stretches out a 16MP image from 0.8 to 1.6, giving it a larger 64MP resolution image which is 4 times bigger. Same thing with the front camera’s 48MP, which is a 12MP pixel binned camera. 12x4 is 48. The advantage here is, of course, a higher resolution image, an image that lets more light in and of course, better relative quality overall. So that’s something to note. 


In their respective normal modes, you’ll get 16 and 12MP images until you switch the 64MP on, or in the case of the front camera, the 48MP on You can shoot 4K on both the front and back camera even 960FPS super slow motion and lower. Night mode is an option too, as well as Bokeh mode in video and some fair electronic image stabilization. I have only had some hands-on time with this device so I’ll have to check it out later. When it comes to the display, the full view display of the Camon 15 Premiere will surely be missed. This ditches the pop-up camera for a cutout and increases from 6.6 inches to 6.9 inches in an LCD. Camon 16 Premier gets you up to 90Hz which you can reduce to 60 or Adapt. It’s, of course, a 1080p display, 1080 by 2460 At this point. If you’re an Infinix fan, I think you already have a Camon 16 Premier in your line up because this is almost the Zero 8 in the Camon body. Quite a lot of similarities packaged differently and vice versa. This also translates into the main processing power. Here we’ve got the G90T. 


Their dedicated gaming processor. I saw a teardown post from a Nigerian YouTuber, Tech Overwatch on the Zero 8 which I’ll link below and it has thermal paste and heat sync for cooling so I’m sort of expecting the same thing here which would be good. Also in the RAM and storage department. 8Gb of RAM and 128GB of storage. 4,500 mAh battery which will charger up to 100% in 1 hour and 5 minutes on average. The software on here is Android 10 that comes with heavily skinned HiOS 7 and a lot of bloatware. Even when you tap it slightly, the fingerprint reader is fast enough, also comes with Face Unlock and yeah, it’s pretty much the whole deal. It’s something I’ll describe, in my own opinion, as a 2020 transition smartphone since it’s not entirely unique in its offering if we’re not looking at the brand name. However, it’s an improvement from the previous Camon series devices. You know there are bigger brands like BBK that houses Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, and Realme which are unique but under the conglomerate. It’s a pretty standard company practice across many industries. My post aren’t recommendations of any smartphones but rather me sharing my experience with it. It’s getting launched now and as I mentioned pre-orders end on the 21st of September for those who might be interested or probably invested in the TECNO line up. 


It’s definitely an improvement and it’s clear that a lot of things have been done and some things have been taken away or lowered in order to get as much tech out for the price that this comes with. Check my pinned comment for the updated price and Do let me know your thoughts. I can’t give a full verdict but I’ll be down in the comments chatting with you guys and answering your questions.
