While the Camon X was launched majorly in Nigeria and other African countries. The Tecno Camon i was launched in India for the Indian market, which is why its 4G network only supports Indian bands.

Instead of metal, the Camon X comes with a polycarbonate unibody. While the Camon I comes with a front glass and metallic unibody.
