Tecno Camon 17 Specifications:
The Tecno Camon 17 runs a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC chipset as its processor. The storage option for the phone is 6GB RAM plus 128GB local storage that can be expanded up to 256GB. The phone has a 6.8-inch FHD+ IPS Display and a 90Hz refresh rate on screen, making the phone suitable for mobile gaming. Connectivity options include the usual 4G LTE, Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth v5.0, and much more.
Apart from that, the Tecno Camon 17 comes with a quad-camera setup. This includes a 64MP primary lens, which can support apertures up to f/1.79, making it suitable for portrait photography. The other three cameras include a 2MP sensor. The front-facing camera of the phone is 16MP and supports low apertures too.
In other features, the phone has a decently sized 5000mAh battery that can be charged with an 18W fast-charging feature. It also has Dual SIM technology and has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The phone comes with HiOS v7.6 and runs Android 11.
Tecno Camon 17 Pro Specifications:

The screen of Tecno Camon 17 Pro also sports a 6.8-inch FHD+ IPS Display and 90Hz refresh rate. Making it suitable for gaming primarily because of the huge RAM and more robust processor.
The camera setup of the phone includes a quad-camera setup too. This includes a 64MP primary lens which can go up to f/1.79 apertures, an 8MP wide-angle lens, which is not included in the Tecno Camon 17’s quad-camera setup. And the remaining two cameras comprise 2MP lenses.
