  1. The design is fine but it’s not something new naa, I hve seen dat type of design in many phones unless its the gold version that looked slightly different. I like the phones shaa and hope the price is not more than 45k.

  2. I especially like the 4G LTE part, but since our network providers no want port go 4G, who e epp? It’s good to know that other network bands will be present though.

  3. Really cool design and features. I just hope it’s not more than #45k as Jane rightly said. Rumor has it that the price is roughly #48,500… I’m scared o

  4. Yeah.. It sure is a pretty cool feature. Thumbs up to Tecno mobile. The device should be hitting the mobile market say mid June

  5. Almost got the boom j8 but had to pause a bit when I heard the c9 would be launched soon. The slim factor of the j8 coupled with the headphones simply blew me away… They say the c9 is way slimmer than the c8 plus lighter… Not to mention the juicy 2gb ram with the 1.5 or 1.7ghz processor speed integrated with marshmallow v6.0. This device had better be worth my wait…

  6. So tecno heard infinix is launching a smart watch and decided to do their own with T- band, will I say Tecno is copying Infinix or vice versa?😁just asking though

  7. I got fresh gist concerning tecnos latest camon release(c9). Sources say it would be released on the 19th of this month. Now to the bad or not-so-friendly news, I heard the price range of this device is within #49k – #52k😳 😟. The Lord is my strength

  8. The device looks a little bit too feminine. That’s a plus for TECNO cos considering the fact that it’s a selfie phone, and we all know who the real selfie crazy people are. LOL

  9. speaking of feminine let’s not forget some of our guys that have forgotten their genders. lol. very sleek device i must say.

  10. I hope d amouth is not to high. For me I am nt tecno fans bt I think I luv dis due to d futures if that is how it looks.

    1. Haba! Compare this to the infinix zero 3, I think the Camon C9 is the real deal with a perfect price slap.

    1. I beg to differ. The design is quite unique, I like the back appearance because it enables easy handling.

  11. The battery is supposed to be up to 4000mAH, but I don’t know why c8 and c9 is sharing the same battery capacity.
    I would rather go for infinix hote note.

    1. Your reason for getting devices must be a little poor, for you to shenk the incredible specs of the Camon C9 for a hot note. Really?!

    1. Hello tekzi, the price currently ranges 54,500 naira to 59,000 naira in Jumia. Follow the purchase link in above to orders yours from Jumia.

  12. Hello Tech Blogger, I hope this meets you well? I was saving a lot of information as draft on my camon c9 I think my os updated, now I Can’t find the draft. Any way you may help me retrieve it. Help!!!

  13. I have a camon c9 , I had issues with it, and it was rooted and the IMEI was lost, so the device is invalid now so what is the way out?
