The TECNO Camon CX Air is a budget Android smartphone that recently launched in Kenya.

The CX Air is a cheaper variant of the Camon CX and comes with a number of budget features that makes it an awesome choice for the budget smartphone buyer.

That said here is what the Camon CX Air has to offer.




Rear Camera: 13 MP

Secondary Camera: 13 MP

LED Flash: Yes

The Camon CX Air offers a 13MP camera for general photography and a 13 MP camera for your selfies. The camera profile is the highlighted feature of the smartphone and the core reason why TECNO wants you to buy the smartphone.

A 13 MP front facing camera is quite good and just right for the smartphone. Both the front facing and rear camera include some extra features that aids in capturing perfect selfies and photographs.


Display Size: 5.5-inch

Display Type: IPS LCD

Screen Resolution: 1280 x 720 Pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 274 PPI

Screen Protection: None

You get a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with the Camon CX Air. The display has a 1280 x 720 Pixels resolution and this gives the smartphone a pixel per inch density of 274 PPI.

The 720p display of the TECNO Camon CX is watered down from the 1080P Full HD display found on the Camon CX.


Dimensions: 153 x 75.4 x 7.75 mm

The Camon CX has a design profile that is closely similar to that of the Camon CX. You get a unibody design (non-removable battery) that is compact and feels good to look at and touch.


Operating System: Android 7.0 HIOS 2.0

CPU: 1.3GHz Quad-Core


Internal Memory: 16 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 128GB


The performance profile of the TECNO Camon CX Air is sadly the weak point of the smartphone. A 1.3GHz Quad-Core CPU powers the device, something that is disappointing that the chipset is now the standard for low-end budget smartphones.

It would have been awesome if the smartphone came with at least an octa-core chipset. However, it awesome that that the Camon CX Air comes with 2GB RAM.

One aspect that I totally loved about the smartphone is that it comes with Android 7.0 out of the box. Often budget smartphone come with outdated software and thus it commendable that TECNO decided to go with Android 6.0.

Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: Li-Polymer 3200mAh

A Li-Polymer 3200mAh battery powers the Camon CX Air.






The TECNO Camon CX Air is a great choice if you are out shopping for budget smartphone that provides a mid-range camera experience.
