Tecno Camon 18 Premier Review

In 2021, Tecno introduced interesting additions to its product range. All smartphones were equipped with updates, and among them the Tecno Camon 18 Premier stood out the most. As a flagship, it has more serious technical parameters. The good news is that they are housed in an elegant body.


Each representative of the flagship class is logically not only productive, but also offers a high level of comfort and exclusivity. The case of the Tecno Camon 18 Premier looks stylish. It lies pleasantly in the hand. On the rear panel, a massive three-camera unit is positioned, and in the bottom right corner we see the brand logo delicately applied.

Looking at the front of the Tecno Camon 18 Premier, we notice the beautiful and elegant 6.7-inch screen. It is virtually bezel-less, which will appeal greatly to most users.

At the top of the display, we find a mini selfie camera. It is located below the screen and you won't notice it at all while using the smartphone, even when watching videos.

The modern design of the Tecno Camon 18 Premier is complemented by the choice of body colours. There are two options - polar night and light blue. The premium qualities of the smartphone can also be judged by the glass back and front. To store it for longer, we recommend wearing it in a case.


The Tecno Camon 18 Premier offers a 6.7-inch display with an AMOLED matrix. The aspect ratio is a classic 20:9. The screen takes up just over 87% of the front, which is a high figure and can only please. The pixel density per inch suggests that the picture quality will be good and it will be a real treat to watch movies, videos and photos. As for the brightness, it is ample enough to work with the Tecno Camon 18 Premier outdoors and on a sunny day.


The excellent performance of the Tecno Camon 18 Premier is largely due to the MediaTek Helio G96 chipset. It consists of an 8-core processor combined with 8 GB of RAM. The storage is 256 GB and you can increase it if needed, as the manufacturer has provided a memory card slot. You can boldly install a variety of games, download programs and store a lot of files on the Tecno Camon 18 Premier. This flagship is made to have fun. It comes factory-installed with the Android 11 operating system and HIOS 8.0 interface, and the Mali-G57 MC2 is responsible for the graphics.


The Tecno Camon 18 Premier has photo capabilities worthy of respect. It is equipped with a triple rear camera whose main sensor is 64 MP with stabilization. As an add-on, a 12-megapixel lens with stabilization and a 6-megapixel sensor with 60x subject zoom are selected. To the rescue in the moments when there is not enough light, you can activate the quad LED flash.

Hand on heart, it can be said that Tecno's developers have created a unique mode for creating moon shots. It is called Moon Probe. Other interesting features are also waiting for you. Among them, the video with bokeh effect, the Film Masten set and exciting filters and special effects deserve attention. You can also use modern music for the montages.

The selfie camera is a single, 32-megapixel and again pleases with high photo quality. You can always take advantage of the dual LED flash to compensate for the lack of sufficient light, shooting indoors or during the dark hours of the day.

With the Tecno Camon 18 Premier in hand, you can capture videos in 4K resolution. With the front-facing camera, you can rely on 1080 pixels at just 30 frames per second.

Autonomous operation

The Tecno Camon 18 Premier is equipped with a 4750 mAh battery. The high autonomous operation guarantees quiet operation for hours. With the 33 W fast charging technology you can recharge the battery from 0 to 64% in just half an hour.


Tecno Camon 18 Premier is the top device of 2021. Getting to know each of its features, you get the impression that they are excellent. The unit comes in two colors and they are super exciting. You will make an impression with them because they are rare. The performance of the model pleases and will be highly appreciated by gamers and anyone who likes to work with more complex applications.

The smartphone supports NFC modem for contactless payments. It also allows you to securely protect your personal data. It has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that works adequately and fast enough.
