You most probably have about the Tecno Camon C5 and if you liked it, you will then love the Camon C8.The Tecno Camon C8 smartphone is an upgrade of the C5 and is in a nutshell a larger version of the Camon C5.
Tecno Camon C8 Technical Specifications
Display Size: 5.5 inches
Display Type: IPS LCD
Screen Resolution: 720 x 1280 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 267 ppi
Screen Protection: None
The Tecno Camon C8 features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. It all sounds amazing but the choice by Tecno to maintain the 720p resolution on a slightly larger display resulted in a drop of the resolution density from 294ppi to 267ppi.

Dimensions: 150 x 76.3 x 8.8mm
The Tecno Camon C8 mirrors the design concept of the C5 and thus the straight-forward way to differentiate it, is simply by its larger size.
You get a chrome like band around the Smartphone, a feature that gives the smartphone a distant premium look and feel.
Operating System: Android OS, v5.0 Lollipop
CPU: 1.3GHz Quad-core
RAM: 1 GB
Internal Memory: 16 GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 32 GB
A 1.3GHz Quad-core CPU powers the Tecno Camon C8. This is coupled with some 1GB RAM. I had expected that the Tecno Camon C8 features a slightly refined performance profile since this is exactly what you also get on the C5.
It is however, awesome that the C8 comes with 16GB of internal memory, which is an upgrade from the 8 GB found on the Tecno C5.
Other than that, the Camon C8 runs Android OS, v5.0 Lollipop, a great feature by all standards, but still it wouldn’t have hurt anyone if the Tecno Camon C8 runs Android OS, v5.1 out of the box.

Rear Camera: 13 MP
Secondary Camera: 5 MP
LED Flash: Yes
If you have been following Tecno Mobile on their various social media channels, you must have noticed how the company has placed lots on emphasis on the Camon range being a camera-centric.
The camera samples from the 8MP camera of the Tecno Camon C5 were great and thus they can only better with the 13 MP snapper of the Camon C8.
Couple the 13MP rear camera with the 5 MP selfie camera, and you have one of the best camera profile you will find on a Tecno Mobile Smartphone.
