2016 has been said to the year when dual camera devices take the stage and it’s great to see Tecno Mobile moving in this direction. Tecno Camon C9 is coming and the feature we’re excited about the most is the dual camera that may even be rotatable.
Camon c8 was released last year and we praised the camera in the review we did. Such a pretty good camera on a smartphone in its price range isn’t what you see everywhere but the upcoming Camon C9 has already proven to be much better than its predecessor based on the leaked images we’ve seen and one thing is for sure, Tecno Camon C9 will crush the success of the Camon C8.
Why a dual-camera setup is a big deal
Okay, let’s set the record straight: Tecno Mobile isn’t the first OEM to put a dual camera on a smartphone. However, it’s a trend that will likely be seen on the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus according to rumors. We took a look at some smartphones with dual-camera setup in this article and added a sample image taken with Huawei Honor 6 Plus that has a dual camera setup too.
One of the most popular use of a dual-camera setup is the DSLR focus effect that tends to blur out an image background and focus primarily on the image. One camera focuses on the image itself and the other camera measures the depth. If this is exactly what Tecno Mobile plans to do with the Camon C9, this device has already won our heart.
Another great thing about the camera is the fact that you can rotate the lenses. While we’re not sure if this will be seen in the final product, the leaked images strongly suggests this.
According to a reliable source, the front camera will have a wide angle that’s above average and this will let you capture more field of view. The dual-flash spotted on the device is also expected to strongly enhance low-light photography.
Fingerprint sensor included
Tecno Phantom 5 has a fingerprint sensor we described as very accurate with little or no error margin and we should have this feature on the upcoming Camon C9 too. This will be placed just below the rear camera.
Apart from the dual 13MP camera, very little is known about the technical specifications. We’re almost sure the device will come with a 5.5″ screen or higher and we do hope it has a resolution of at least 1080p. Also, we don’t expect Tecno Camon C9 to come with 1GB RAM as this is the one thing most people had against its predecessor last year.
