The TECNO Camon 17 Pro has been here with us for quite some time. TECNO officially launched this device in May and as the successor to the CAMON 16 it features many improvements.
One of the main selling points that TECNO has put forward with its CAMON series is the camera. TECNO did not deviate from this with the CAMON 17 PRO.
I should also mention that the devices in this CAMON 17 series include the CAMON 17 standard and a Pro version. The price of TECNO Camon 17 in Kenya starts at KES 17,499 for 4 GB and 128 GB of internal storage. The larger 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM model costs KES 19,999. The Camon 17 Pro, on the other hand, starts at 31,000 Ksh.
In this article, we take a look at the CAMON 17 Pro cameras. How good are they?
The CAMON 17 Pro is the first device in this series and that means TECNO gives you a superior camera experience.
We get a total of five cameras on this device. At the rear is a 64-megapixel main camera; an 8 megapixel camera; a 2 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel camera. There’s a 48-megapixel camera on the front for selfies.
As we mentioned, the main camera here is 64 megapixel. We also get a number of camera modes including movie, AI, beauty, portrait, super night, AR shooting, panorama, among others.
This main camera is supported by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide and an additional pair of 2-megapixel lenses to capture monochrome and depth photos respectively.
The shutter speed is quite responsive During the day, the phone produces decent photos with lifelike colors. In low light, Super Night mode saves the day by producing some pretty impressive shots. . Check out some sample shots below. (Click on the image to enlarge)

For videos, you can shoot in 4K at 30 frames per second with the camera
There’s a 48-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies on the TECNO Camon 17 Pro. These days, selfies are a part of life. At the CAMON 17 launch event, TECNO went why the selfie is so central to our perception of ourselves and, by extension, the world around us in a captivating documentary titled “Rise of the Selfie”.
TECNO said the improvement in cell phone camera technology indicates the growing role modern smartphones play in the development of our social psychology. A prime example is how the development of the TECNO CAMON 17 Pro has been driven by the demands of a selfie generation in the post-pandemic era.
The selfie camera also has the same features we have on the main camera, including Super Night mode, the only one missing being the wide angles. Check out some sample selfies below.
Other camera features
I should also mention that TECNO has integrated the Integration of Google Lens on the camera. Google Lens lets you point your phone at something, say food, and then ask Google Assistant what object you’re pointing at.
There is also something interesting you can use your fingerprint sensor as the camera shutter.
