Following the launch of the Tecno Camon 18 Premier last October, Tecno Mobile announced a new variant of the phone dubbed the Tecno Camon 18 Premier Ceramic Edition. This model, as you can probably tell from the name itself, has a ceramic back instead of glass like the regular models.
A ceramic phone also means you don’t have to live with the stains that usually appear on glass and metal cases, so it will always look polished and clean. In addition, the bonding of atoms in ceramics is stronger than in meta ceramics, which makes the structure smooth and flat, but strong at the same time, ”the company said.
Apart from the cosmetic differences, the Tecno Camon 18 Premier Ceramic Edition has the same features as the regular models. Starting from the front, the Tecno Camon 18 Premier comes with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display that offers FHD + screen resolution, an ultra-smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and a maximum brightness of 550 nits. On top of that, it also has a fairly capable 32MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling.
On the back of the phone is a rectangular-shaped camera island that houses a triple-camera system, headed by a 64-megapixel main camera. This will be facilitated by an ultra-wide-angle 12-megapixel unit with a Gimbal stabilization system, as well as an 8-megapixel periscopic telephoto lens, providing up to 60x hyperzoom.
Under the hood, the Tecno Camon 18 Premier is powered by an eight-core MediaTek Helio G96 chipset, which is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage in the storage department. In terms of software, the phone will boot with a dedicated HiOS based on Android 11 out of the box.
To keep the lights on, the Tecno Camon 18 Premier relies on a respectable 4,750mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging, which is capable of delivering a full charge in about an hour. Other than that, it’s also worth noting that the phone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner as well as NFC support.
