    Tecno Camon 12 Pro budget smartphone price in Nigeria

    This is another budget smartphone that you should not think twice before buying.

    The android smartphone is powered by the Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. This has more RAM than the Galaxy A30s but you know the hype around Samsung devices wouldn’t allow some people to notice this. When it comes to price, the Tecno Camon 12 Pro is even cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy A30s.

    Tecno Camon 12 Pro is fueled by a Non-removable Li-Po 3500 mAh battery which is pretty much poor in my own opinion. The phone runs on Android 9.0 (Pie) + HIOS 5.5. Now, in case your budget can’t afford this device, there is also a standard Camon 12 with a cheaper price tag to go for.
