TECNO recently launched the CAMON 30 series with a range of innovative smartphones including the Camon 30, the Camon 30 Pro 5G, and the Camon 30 5G. The CAMON 30 Pro 5G, which we will review in this article, has improved battery charging and battery lifetime (from previous Camon devices), better camera quality, and the latest smartphone software at a reasonable price.

Design and Build

The CAMON 30 Pro is a wide-frame, lightweight device measuring 164 x 74.4 x 7.7 mm.

It comes with a 6.78-inch glass display with an AMOLED screen and a marble-effect glass back. 

With this improved design, TECNO has let go of the headphone jack and given users good-quality true wireless earphones to enjoy music and phone conversations hands-free. The dual Dolby speakers also provide an immersive sound experience while using this phone without earphones.

This device comes with a Wet Finger Touchscreen Operation feature that allows the display and touch to continue performing effectively even with water on the screen. So, if you would like to listen to music in the rain or in the shower, this device maintains its effectiveness. 


The device has a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with ultra-thin bezels creating a near bezel-free display.  With a 144Hz refresh rate, it is super responsive. This display offers vibrant images with pretty precise colour accuracy and a peak brightness of 1300nits for clear viewing in sunny weather.


The CAMON 30 pro is equipped with a 50 MP Sony IMX930 camera lens as part of a triple camera setup for the back camera, a 4k 60FPS eye tracking autofocus front camera, and an AI camera toolkit for better photography.

In video mode, users get video stabilisation which makes shooting steady footage possible, regardless of the conditions. Users also get dual video mode for both front and back camera recording. 

Software and performance

This device is powered by the latest Android 14 OS with a MediaTek Dimensity 8200 chipset. The processor also allows for lag-free scrolling, smooth multitasking from one app to the other, and an overall easy-to-navigate user interface. It also improves the battery management ability of this device making it a power-efficient smartphone.

Charging this device takes about 50 minutes to go from 0% to 100%. This allows users to have a quick lunch break while their device powers up, and allows a full 24-hour usage before they need to recharge.

TECNO has incorporated the magic of AI into this device too. With the Ask AI feature combined with Ella TECNO’s AI voice assistant, the device is perfect for both professional work and personal needs. AskAI can generate conversion scripts for users, type emails, answer questions, summarise text, and more.

Another great multitasking feature this smartphone comes with is a minimised smart panel on the side of the screen. This smart panel is full of apps that you can open in a floating window on top of another open window. This means users can open multiple windows on the screen and operate them together. Users can also customise this smart panel to include all their favourite apps. There’s also the smart hub which like the smart panel can be used to easily access documents. Unlike the smart panel, it doesn’t have apps attached to it and can only be used to temporarily hold files so you can easily access them in another app.


This device also includes an IR remote control that allows it to be used as a remote control for other devices like your TV, Air Conditioner, electric fan, and more.

Overall, the CAMON 30 Pro 5G offers great performance and high-quality software at a moderate price of about ₦500,000. This smartphone will be suitable for gamers and content creators because of its performance and camera quality. Users also get a smartphone with a great display, powerful processor, high-quality sound, and long-lasting battery, which makes it great for anyone who wants efficient technology without breaking the bank.
