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 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.

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.
