Design & Display
The Tecno Camon 15 Pro offers a polycarbonate plastic glossy finish at the back panel with lining pattern making it quite attractive. We got the Ice Jadeite color option for review and it surely looks gorgeous and gives you a premium feel when you hold it in your hand. The phone can be said as one of the most distinct-looking smartphones from the company stable.
The front has a complete bezel-less display with a slight chin at the bottom. On the rear, you get a pattern that appears to be faux brushed plastic, alongside a gradient emanating from the edges. Also on the rear of this smartphone, is an array of quad cameras, a camera flash, a capacitive fingerprint sensor and the Tecno branding indicating it’s a smartphone made by Tecno.
The Tecno Camon 15 Pro comes with a 6.53-inch Full HD+ Full View display with a screen resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and a 91.2 percent screen-to-body ratio. The phone does not feature any notch as it comes up with a pop-up selfie camera. Overall, the phone features good viewing angles. It comes with good outdoor visibility as texts are easily readable in daylight conditions, all thanks to the 480nits brightness.
Camera & Performance
The rear camera setup on this device is home to quad cameras which comprises a 48MP primary camera, 5MP, 2MP, and another 2MP primary camera. Tecno Camon 15 Pro is the first device from the Tecno brand to feature a pop-up selfie mechanism. The company has added a light on the mechanism, which lit when the camera pop-up or goes down with sound.
The device features a 32-megapixel pop-up AI Selfie camera. The front camera comes with different modes, such as beauty, AI shot, super night, and wide selfie. The Camon 15 Pro has a 48-megapixel sensor, 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, 2-megapixel macro sensor, and a low-light lens.

Software & Hardware
The Tecno Camon 15 Pro steps up its less premium sibling. It’s more of a minor spec bump, featuring more RAM and more storage space. Inside this smartphone are an Octa-core Meditek Helio P35 Processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 4000mAh battery.
On the software side, it needs quite a lot of improvement. Still, it runs on HiOS 6.0.1, which is based on Android 10 which is a good thing offered by the company. The company has given an option to choose between on-screen navigation buttons and gesture-based controls.
The user interface is smooth to operate and also comes with app drawer support. But sadly it comes with a host of bloatware. You have the usual suite of Google apps, plus Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and games like Fifa football and snuggle bug which all can be uninstalled.
