The year 2018 has been a year of Camon smartphones for Tecno as a smartphone manufacturing company. Tecno began the year with the camon cm, moved to releasing the camon x and when we were expecting the next phantom device, Tecno once again released another smartphone from their camon series. The camon 11 is the latest to come out of the Tecno camon series. Tecno is paying lot of attention to the cameras on their smartphones, and this is made evident in the improvement in camera tech, that we have seen from the camon CM to the Camon 11.
As our tradition goes at lexicop.com, we will be making a comparison between the Tecno camon 11 and Tecno camon x. Being the successor of the camon x, we expect the camon 11 to be an improvement of the camon x, not just design wise but improvement in terms of hardware. This comparison is broken into different segments, from design to hardware, to make the whole comparison comprehensive.
Tecno camon 11 VS Tecno camon x : Design comparison
Looking at both phones, you will observe Tecno’s transition from the kind of design featured on most phones to an entirely new design. The camon 11 features a dragon fire inspired design on the rear. This dragon fire design is actually a gradient design made out of poly carbonate material. The camon x actually featured a less premium looking plastic matte design on the rear. On the camon x, the rear camera was placed in a horizonatal manner, while the camon 11 features dual cameras on the rear, arranged in a vertical position, with its flash placed beneath it.
Tecno camon 11 VS Tecno camon x : Display comparison
Turning both smartphones to the front, the disparities become more glaring. The first and most prominent disparity, is the notch. The Camon 11 features a full display with a notch. The Camon 11 rocks a 6.2 inches under IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1500 pixels and 268 PPI density, while the Camon x featured a smaller 5.99 inch dispaly under IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and 403 PPI density. Though the camon x has a smaller screen size, it is very obvious that it has a better display, owing to its higher screen resolution and screen density. You are getting a sharper and richer display on the camon x when compared to the camon 11. please note that if you are going for the camon 11 in place of the camon x, you might actually have compatibility issues with most games on the Google Playstore, due to the bizarre aspect ratio on the display of the camon 11.

When successors are released in Tecno’s camon series, Tecno fans expect a lot of improvements, because Tecno phones in the camon series are best known for their camera performance. This has been the case since the second Tecno camon smartphone released.
The camon 11 isn’t lagging behind though, the tecno camon 11 brings improvements to the camera department on Tecno camon smartphones. The Camon 11 comes with a 16MP selfie camera with AI-enabled 4-in-1 technology which are AI HDR, AI Beautification, AI Bokeh and AI selfie. This is also applicable to the 13MP + 2MP dual rear camera with LED flash.
The Tecno Camon X featured a 16MP rear camera with ring LED flash (quad-LED). For selfies, a 20MP front camera is held responsible having an adjustable flash.
Looking at the numbers, the camon x seems to be leading. But going deep into camera features, a whole new truth is unravelled. The camon 11 introduces dual cameras for bokeh effect to the camon series. This is a feature many Tecno fans expected the camon x to have, but didn’t. Apart from the dual cameras, tecno is pushing their AI game a notch higher with the cameras on the camon 11 and are promising better photos AI assistance.
