Tecno Camon i Sky unboxing and first look: the Kings XI Punjab phone

Tecno Camon i Sky
With the IPL season on full throttle, smartphone companies are trying hard to grab the eyes of this cricket-crazy country. Well, in such an attempt, Tecno, a smartphone brand and one of the sponsors for KingsXI Punjab, sent us this massive package. While this could’ve been a regular unboxing of the brand new Tecno Camon i Sky, we got more than we could hope for.
 

Inside-the-box

When we peeped inside, we were first greeted with a Tecno-KingsXI Punjab cap and next to that was the latest Tecno Camon i Sky. Apart from the phone, the package had a KingsXI T-shirt with the Tecno Camon branding.

Now, coming to the phone, the Camon i sky is a super budget offering from the brand and comes with a trendy 18:9 aspect ratio display. The panel is LCD but comes with a below average 480 x 960p resolution. This, along with the lower brightness levels make the display look very dull.

The body is made up of plastic but feels sturdy enough for everyday use. I’m not sure how well the Gold colour will hold over time. The one thing I immediately feel is how compact and comfortable to hold the phone is.
 
There is a 13MP single camera at the back with Dual LED flash. At the front sits an 8 MP selfie camera with an LED flash and screen flash. You get a fingerprint scanner at the back, but what is more exciting is that it comes with Facial recognition. Now, that is clearly revamped Android Face Detect, but still, it’s cool to have this feature in a budget offering.

Talking about the software, Tecno’s HiOS is a heavily skinned software and has a very vibrant look to it, a bit too vibrant for me. The interesting part here is that it comes with Android Oreo out-of-the-box, so no need to worry there.
 
Apart from this, the Camon i Sky has a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor assisted by 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB internal storage and support for a micro SD card. There is a 3050mAh battery inside which, with the low-resolution display should, on paper, last for a full day of casual use without hiccups.
