Camon 12 Pro Vs TECNO Phantom 9 -Design

The Tecno Camon 12 Pro is built from shining polycarbonate material. The design is quite similar to the Phantom 9 but not the same.

The Phantom 9 sports an Aurora Lapland with aluminum frame. It weighs 180 grams and measures 7.85 mm in thickness. Whereas, the Camon 12 Pro weighs 164 grams and 7.8 mm thick.

Both Tecno phones feature an in-display fingerprint reader. The main camera module with LED flash is aligned identically at the top left corner in a horizontal direction.

Camon 12 Pro Vs TECNO Phantom 9 -Display

The Camon 12 Pro and Phantom 9 features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch. The display on the Camon 12 Pro sports 720 x 1548 pixels resolution. While on the Phantom 9, the display features 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. Both displays are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.

Camon 12 Pro Vs TECNO Phantom 9 -Camera

There is nothing to separate both the Camon 12 Pro and Phantom 9 in the camera department. Their triple rear camera module consists of a 16MP main sensor, an 8MP ultrawide sensor, 2MP depth sensor, and Quad-LED flash.

The camera comes with features such as HDR, panorama, autofocus e.t.c. At the front, both phones sport a 32MP selfie shooter with AI beautification features.

Hardware and Software

The Camon 12 Pro comes with MediaTek Helio P22 SoC which is laced with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. While the Phantom 9 comes with MediaTek Helio P35 SoC laced with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

The Helio P35 chip features four cores of Cortex-A73 clocked at 2.3 GHz and four cores of Cortex-A53 clocked at 2.0 GHz. Whereas, the Helio P22 chip features four cores of Cortex-A53 clocked at 2.0 GHz and four cores of Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.8 GHz. You’re guaranteed faster performance on the Phantom 9 based on its hardware.

Software-wise, both phones feature Android 9.0 Pie coated with HiOS 5.5 custom skin on top of it.


This one of the feature I consider most before I purchase any phone especially in a country like Nigeria, where power shortage has been a problem from time immemorial

Both the Tecno Camon 12 and Phantom 9 packs a non-removable Li-Ion 3,500 mAh battery with fast charging support.


The Tecno Camon 12 costs around N62,500 while the Phantom 9 goes for N77,500. Based on this comparison, the Phantom 9 features better display and chipset.

But honestly, from the performance side of things, there is no difference between these two phones.

In fact, the Camon 12 Pro might be able to handle games better than the Phantom due to its IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

Looking at the specs and price of both phones, I will gladly pick the Camon 12 Pro over the Phantom.

So whenever you are faced with a choice of which phone to buy, please save yourself the stress by choosing Camon 12 Pro.

It will definitely serve you better though individual differences still come into play.

As the popular saying goes: One man’s food is another man’s poison

  2. Both the phones powered by MediaTek which is a plus point. Performance of Camon 12 Pro could have been better if Helio P35 is used in place of Helio P22, but it is doing well in that way too.
