The Tecno C9, according to the company, has some features that beat smartphones that have been rated as the best in the world.
“Tecno Camon C9 will be the best camera phone in Africa… Its front camera is second to none in the world,” one of the officials told TUKO.co.ke.
With Tecno Camon C9, one would get the best smartphone experience at a very affordable price.
Take a look at some of the Tecno Camon C9 features that set it ahead of the rest:
All of them have been found to have flaws.
Tecno C9 has an advanced application to keep your phone safe and private – the eyeball unlock. This is billed to be the most secured and latest way to lock your phone.
“C9 is equipped with the latest eyeball recognition technology. It has been tested thousands of times without a recognition error,” a Tecno Mobile official said.
With the eyeball lock, you have to have your eyes open for the scanner to work. Therefore, no one can access your phone when you are asleep or away.
2. T-Band bracelet
Tecno C9 also has a compatible smart bracelet – the T-Band – that allows you control the camera functions from as far as 10 meters away. With this, you don’t have to miss being in the photos.
The T-Band also has a pedometer that counts each step you make. It has a sleep monitor, sedentary and call reminder as well.
When you misplace your phone, you just have to press the T-Band’s main button for three seconds. The phone will vibrate and ring to notify you where it is.
3. Selfie width
Have you ever taken a group selfie then posted it on your social media account only to be asked by your friends why they are not in the picture? They were there with you but you can’t just explain to them that it is your phone’s front camera’s angle was not wide enough to capture them.
With Tecno C9, the days of squeezing into a selfie frame will be long gone.
Tecno C9 has a 83° wide angle front camera lens that will enable you take wider selfies. This beats Samsung S6 Edge’s front camera angle.
With Tecno C9, you can as well switch to the 120° Panorama Selfie mode to enhance the angle even wider.
4. The straight selfies
Unlike Apple iPhone 6, Samsung S6 Edge and other smartphones that have their front cameras on the side, Tecno Camon C9’s is uniquely placed at the center of the screen. This gives exceptional experience for selfie lovers as they will appear looking straight into the camera.
With the front camera located on the right or left of the screen, it is usually next to impossible to take a selfie looking straight. The subjects always appear as if they are looking away.
5. Night mode
Tecno C9’s rear camera has a higher light intake ratio in low light conditions compared to iPhone 6 Plus. This makes Tecno C9’s images are 15% brighter.
In addition to the F/2.0 super diaphragm, Tecno Camon C9 also has Visidon Algorithm Brightness that produces 50% brighter images than average. Its Visidon Algorithm Noise Deduction clears up to 75% of the ‘noise’ in the dark leaving you with a very clear photo.
That’s not all. Tecno C9’s rear camera has an oversized pixel that allows you take better photos at night compared to iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung S6 Edge.
An iPhone 6 will cost you at least $790; Samsung S6 Edge also falls in the same price range.
On the other hand, Tecno C9, with all the said features, will retail at around $200 (KSh 20,000 or N50,000).
