Tecno Camon 17 Pro Price in India
Tecno Camon 17 Pro is projected to cost Rs.21,990 in India. On August 26, 2021, Tecno Camon 17 Pro is expected to be released here. This is the base edition of the Tecno Camon 17 Pro with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage, which will be available in California Silver and Malibu Blue colours. The actual Tecno Camon 17 Pro price will be updated once Tecno announces it here.
Starting with the first parameter, which is the design and build quality of the Tecno Camon 17 Pro, the smartphone features a shiny look from the rear, which appears to be made of glass, but it is plastic in reality. There is a rectangular camera module at the top left corner on the rear with a vertical quad-camera setup housed in it along with an LED flash. Below the camera module, you’ll see the Camon branding, which deteriorates the overall look to some extent.
To enhance the appearance more, Tecno Camon 17 Pro, features a centre punch-hole as we have seen in the Redmi Note 10 and the Infinix Note 10. There is Glass protection on the front, the version of which is unknown yet.
The fingerprint sensor is on the right side-mounted on the power button, along with the volume rocker. While the bottom side features a Type-C charging port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, microphone and speaker grille.
The display is quite big, measuring 6.8-inches featuring 1080p resolution along with a 90Hz refresh rate. When compared with a 60Hz screen, here you’re getting an extra smooth and seamless display. In this price segment, the overall display quality is pretty good. Other features include a pixel density of 395 PPI, 500 nits of brightness and an 82% screen to body ratio. Also, it is for the first time that Tecno has featured an FHD+ resolution.
Moving to the performance section, it turns out to be very strong. Tecno Camon 17 Pro has the MediaTek Helio G95 chipset installed along with 8GB RAM and Mali-G76 MC4 GPU. There is more than enough 128GB internal storage available in the device, which is truly amazing at the given price point. Although the heating issues will be there, still the gaming experience is going to be decent.
As for the software, Tecno Camon 17 Pro runs on HIOS 7.6 based on Android 11. The bloatware is still there, which is a major problem with the Tecno and Infinix smartphones. However, the sound quality is superb here with the dual stereo speakers installed in the device. There is no 5G, Tecno Camon 17 Pro supports 4G networks.
The Camon series smartphones from the Tecno brand are known for their camera setups and the same has been followed here. The front camera is the exhibition area of this device, which is a 48MP selfie camera, which is capable of providing a strong performance. This is mainly to target those who are looking for the best camera phone at the given price tag.
The rear side features a 64 MP Quad-camera setup. Composed of a 64MP main camera, followed by an 8MP wide-angle camera, a 2MP Bokeh camera and a 2MP black and white camera.
When it comes to battery performance, you are being provided with a 5000 mAh large battery. Tecno Camon 17 Pro supports 25W fast charging as well. For connecting the charger there is a Type-C charging port.
In a nutshell, considering the overall offering and the price tag, Tecno Camon 17 Pro is going to be value for money. There is a strong chipset, excellent camera setup, more than enough storage, a large battery and a 90Hz refresh rate. So what else do you need?
