10 Best Tecno Phones-Tecno Camon CX Limited Edition

 

When Tecno announced they were partnering with Manchester City football club to produce a phone, I thought it was going to be a flop. As a Manchester United fan, there’s no way I’m buying that. I’m also sure other football club fans won’t buy it too, leaving it to only Manchester City fans.

But astonishingly the device has more RAM and more internal storage than the original Camon CX, with a massive 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Most noteworthy is the very attractive blue colour, which is the colour of the Football Club home jersey.
