Physical Overview

The Tecno Camon iSky comes with a plastic outer casing which comes with a good metallic finish all over the back, and as the form factor is small, it is very much comfortable for one hand usage. The display comes with a 960 x 480 pixels resolution which is not we were expecting in today’s smartphone, however, given the overall specs the phone is packing, it is a decent compromise.

At the back, the Camon iSky has a beautiful design with a gold color metallic finish; the fingerprint sensor is placed at the back towards the center in the top half of the back. The loudspeaker is also placed at the back of the smartphone.

The bottom side of the smartphone holds the microUSB port or charging and data sync, the 3.5mm audio jack is placed on the top side of the phone. The left side contains the SIM card tray slot which comes with a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion. The volume rocker and the power button is placed at the right side of the smartphone.


The Tecno Camon iSky features a 5.45 inches display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a decent screen to body ratio. The resolution of the display is 960×480 which is slightly less than HD resolution which is a bit unexpected from a 2018 smartphone.

The display is excellent for indoors; everything looks perfect with no problem at all. But the sunlight or outdoor visibility of this display is not very good, even the maximum brightness on display seems to fade away sometimes.


Now the camera is an essential part of any smartphone; the Tecno Camon iSky smartphone comes with a 13MP rear camera with dual LED flash. The aperture size of the sensor is f/2.0 which is good for low light shots. The camera can shoot up to 1080p FHD videos at 30 frames per second.

The front-facing camera is an 8MP shooter which comes with the same f/2.0 aperture size for low light selfies. The front-facing selfie camera comes with LED flash which is a soft flash for low light selfies. The front-facing camera also comes with a Portrait mode which captures selfies with bokeh effect.

Hardware and Performance

The Tecno Camon iSky powered by a MediaTek MTK6739 quad-core SoC which is running at a clock rate of 1.3GHz for best performance. The processor is paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal memory which comes with expansion option up to 128GB.

The smartphone is running the Android 8.1 Oreo with the Hi OS layered on top out of the box. The smartphone can run most of the apps and can multitask quickly between them, but high-end games seem to stutter on this smartphone.

Battery and Connectivity

The Tecno Camon iSky comes with a 3050 mAh battery which is big enough to power the smartphone for a whole day. The smartphone comes with all the connectivity options which a smartphone should have. It comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5 mm audio port and micro USB port for charging.

The smartphone even comes with a fast fingerprint sensor placed at the back which unlocks the smartphone with a single touch. The smartphone also comes with a Face ID option to unlock the smartphone with your face; it can lockdown some features using one of these security options.


Tecno Camon iSky comes with all the features and hardware which an entry-level smartphone user needs. It comes with decent camera performance which is better than most of the entry-level smartphones. The design of the smartphone is also outstanding, and it is perfect for one hand usage.
