Design And Display
Tecno Camon 15 has a big 6.5-inch all-screen display with no notch; instead, it uses a punch hole at the top left corner to house the front-facing camera. The display itself is IPS LCD display with an HD+ resolution and a 270ppi in a 19:9 aspect ratio. It also has a slab of glass on top of the display for protection.
There is also another slab of glass at the back with an aluminium frame along the sides. Still at the back of the device, there is a triple rear camera in a rectangular shape bump along with a Quad-LED flash.
Also, there is a fingerprint sensor at the back for biometric unlock. This device weighs about 195grams and measures 9.1mm in thickness, thanks to the big battery on the inside. Colour options for the Tecno Camon 15 are a Blue-Green Gradient and Red, both of which reflects light in the most beautifully subtle way.

The camera department is packed with a total of 5 cameras; 4 at the rear and 1 at the front. The one at the front in the punch hole on the screen is a single 8MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and HDR, capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30fps and can also be used for facial recognition, also known as face Unlock.
At the rear, we have a 48MP main sensor with an f/1.7 aperture, a 16MP ultrawide sensor with an f/2.3 aperture and two 2MP sensors; a depth sensor and a dedicated macro sensor, both with an f/2.4 aperture. This is accompanied by a Quad-LED flash for photography in low light.
