Tecno Camon 20 Premier 5G VS Tecno camon 20 Pro 5G
You might be asking yourself what’s the difference between these Camon 20 series phones but I am going to tell you a few things you need to know about the Camon 20 Premier 5G and Camon 20 Pro 5G.
Firstly, the 2 different models have the same display size, quality and even design. However, the Operating system and Processor remain the same as well, the only thing that differentiates them is the camera and memory size. Tecno Camon 20 Primer 5G has an edge over Camon 20 Pro 5G when it comes to fast charging capability. Specifically, the Premier variant has 45W fast charging while the Pro variant has 33W which shows that Premier 5G is better.
Camon 20 Premier offers a triple rear camera (50MP + 108MP + 2MP) and 32MP single front camera with dual LED flash while Camon 20 Pro comes with (a 64MP + 2MP + 2MP) triple rear camera and 32MP front selfie camera with dual LED flash. As for the memory, the Tecno Camon 20 Primer 5G gives you 8GB RAM + 512GB internal storage memory but doesn’t have provisions for an external SD card. Camon 20 Pro 5G on the other hand offers 8GB RAM + 256GB internal storage memory, still not sure if it supports an external SD card or not.
Outside the memory size, camera and fast charging, every other thing is the same. However, you can now see that Camon 20 Premier 5G is superior to Camon 20 Pro 5G
