Tecno Camon 15 and Camon 12 are two android smartphones that share lots of similarities in their specifications. However, a close comparison of both devices reveal Camon 15 to have some upgraded features from what we saw on any of the mobile phones in the Camon 12 series. This post highlights some of those major upgrades alongside their price in Nigeria.
Having done excellently well on the market with Camon 12, one would have easily expected Tecno to begin a new series with Camon 13. But instead of doing that, the company took a major jump to Camon 15. With that leap also came some upgrades which you will find on this page as you read on!
Design and Display Compared
In our bid to find out about the changes and similarities between both smartphones, we checked the design and display of Tecno Camon 15 vs Camon 12, and here’s what we discovered:
While Tecno Camon 12 sports a 6.52-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, with a resolution of 720 X 1600 pixels and 269 PPI density, Camon 15 features a 6.55 inches IPS LCD display, with 720 X 1600 pixels in screen resolution and 268 PPI density.
Both smartphones come with a plastic build except for the Front where they are both covered with Glass. That means both the Back and Sides of the two devices are made of plastic.
The upgrade from the display size we saw on Camon 12 to the bigger one on Camon 15 is definitely a good one, especially for video streaming and gaming. You get a better viewing experience on the device.
So, though both mobile phones look almost the same in their design, there is a noticeable difference in their display size when put side by side with each other.
Camera and Battery Compared
On the imaging and power, the changes made by the company in the making of the latest Camon 15 are quite obvious. Transsion once again proved that delivering better camera quality and long-lasting batteries in their midrange devices has always been their goal.
On its arrival, Tecno Camon 12 featured a 16 MP triple camera at the rear. While the 16 MP is the primary sensor in the setup, it is joined by an 8 MP ultra wide-angle lens and a 2 MP depth sensor.
At the Front, the smartphone is paced with another 16 MP camera for selfies. To make images appear better, the camera supports artificial intelligence (AI) beautification.

Supplying electricity to the Tecno Camon 12 is a 4000mAh non-removable Li-Po battery that can last a full day usage without charging. While that battery size is a bit okay for the average smartphone user, the company raised the bar a little higher in featuring a 5000mAh battery on Camon 15, putting the phone on par with Samsung Galaxy M30, Realme 5 and Xiaomi Redmi 8A in terms of battery capacity.
