Tecno introduced its latest Camon 18 Premier in Nigeria and it’s the most feature-rich phone in the line to date. It's built around a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a trendy 120Hz refresh rate.

The panel cranks out up to 550nits of brightness and has a 32MP selfie cam housed in a small punch hole cutout. The phone features a flat design with squared-off edges and a noticeable camera bump on the back.
