TECNO Camon X and XPro: All about the selfie game


Not to be confused with the Camon CX, the new TECNO Camon X was obviously built with selfie addicts in mind. I mean, why else would anyone put a 24 megapixel front camera on a smartphone?

According to Philex Meng, Chief Marketing Officer TECNO Mobile, it goes even beyond the megapixels.
