Moving on, the Tecno Camon 16 draws power from the octa-core MediaTek Helio G79 processor paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage.

Plus, the chipset includes HyperEngine Power, which can handle even gaming titles.

The camera includes features like HDR support, Bokeh effects, and so on. In a gist, the Tecno Camon 16 can take some good photos with its 64MP primary sensor. However, the same can’t be said for low-light settings.
Tecno Camon 16 Important Features/Highlights

Tecno Camon 16 Price-To-Specs Ratio
Tecno Camon 16 is available in a single variant of 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, which costs Tsh. 580,000. For the asking price, the Tecno Camon 16 is a pretty phone. The large battery, 64MP camera sensor, and the large 6.8-inch display surely make it an attractive buy.
However, the Tanzania smartphone market is crowded with several devices in this segment, which offers even better features. The Realme Narzo 20 and Poco M2 are some of the other favorable options.
