Tecno India made a promise that it will be launching the Camon 17 series in India as well after its launch elsewhere on May 8. Cut to now, both Camon 17 and Camon 17 Pro are now available in India and are scheduled for their first sale on Amazon India on July 26th i.e. next Monday. Here’s everything you need to know about the Camon 17 series.
Camon 17 Specifications, Price
The vanilla Camon 17 arrives with a giant 6.6-inch IPS LCD panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and 720×1600 pixels resolution. The device comes paired with a powerful Helio G85 SoC clocked at a max 2.0GHz along with Mali-G52 MC2.

Camon 17 runs on the latest HiOS 7.6 based Android 11 out-of-the-box. It comes strapped with a giant 5,000 mAh battery under the hood along with 18W fast charging which is almost half of what the Camon 17 Pro offers. However, with the price tag of Rs 12,999/- for its 6GB RAM plus 128GB storage, the price is justifiable. Apparently, there’s a smaller 4GB+128GB variant too but it isn’t available in India.
