Just when we are still anticipating the official launching of the Tecno Camon C5 which promises 4G LTE connectivity, Camon C8 is said to also be launching soon.

Tecno Camon C5 according to Tecno Mobile, is tagged as a phone built basically for Camera as we have seen for the boom j7 tagged as a music phone. Apparently, the Camon C8 tend to have a better camera specs in terms of megapixels hence I am wondering why two almost similar devices in such a short pace of time.

Tecno Camon C8 specs and price
Although the Camon C8 just as the model implies, is an advanced version of the C5, it is not quite clear whether or not the device will be 4G LTE enabled seeing that the Camon C5 will be 4G LTE enabled.

The Tecno Camon C8 spots a screen display of 5.5inch accompanied with Samsung’s Super Amoled Screen which should guarantee a better screen display. Considering the screen size, the device can best be described as a phablet.
