BATTERY AND STORAGE

Battery life and size is without a doubt one of the major areas that Smartphone users are usually concerned about and the Tecno Camon 11 Pro while not being spectacular as it packs a 3,750mAH non-removable Lithium ion battery is still decent enough so you can expect it to last under medium to heavy usage. It also comes equipped with Fast Charge which greatly reduces the time it takes to charge.

In the storage department the Camon 11 Pro comes with 64GB of space and if that’s not enough for you it supports MicroSD cards up-to 128GB, which should be enough for storing your files.

NETWORK AND CONNECTIVITY

The Tecno Camon 11 Pro is in keeping with latest technology standards and comes with 3G/4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth, WLAN but lacks NFC support which shouldn’t be much of an issue.
