Lest I forget, the  new tecno phone comes with 3000mAh battery capacity.

Tecno Camon C9 With Iris Scanner

This is the most interesting feature of the new tecno C9, it features an iris scanner to encrypt and to unlock your device with eye contact. This sound more secured because of its high accuracy of recognition than any other means of bio-metric authentication. Awesome, right?

Mind you, first tecno Android phone with bio-metric authentication is Tecno phantom 5 which received a bit low turn up than expected.

What Is Tecno Camon C9 T-Band For?

Tecno Camon C9 T-band is build in conjunction to the new Camon C9, this makes it alot easier to use the device camera features. With T-band, you can remotely take pictures on your phone with just single click within the range of 10 meters away. Also, Camon C9 T-band alerts you whenever your phone is 3 metres away from you. Once your phones is moved within the 3 metres radius, the T-band will vibrate and you can also use it to call your phone to know its whereabouts. Sounds cool?

  1. I bought mine in September 2016. I love it, I like it, it is perfect. However, its common problems are that it beasily becomes hot, close itself I had to visit Care service for repairs because it is under warranty and it was repaired.

    the repair time caused time and business delays on my part because I has to be with them for 24 hours making me to loose calls and response to urgent mails.

    Please take note and response positively towards these issues.
