Transsion Holdings-owned offline smartphone brand Tecno has announced two new handsets in India dubbed CAMON iACE2x and CAMON iACE2. Both smartphones are priced in the sub-8K segment and come with features such as 3GB RAM, 8MP AI selfie camera and gradient colour finish.

Apart from this, both devices are more or less the same, with both sporting a 5.5-inch HD+ Full View display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 80.5 percent screen-to-body ratio.
Tecno has made use of the Helio A22 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz for both smartphones, which is paired with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM for iACE2 and iACE2x, respectively. The phones come with 32GB of storage onboard, which is expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card. In terms of optics, both devices carry 13MP AI rear sensors with f/1.8 aperture and dual LED flash, plus an 8MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture and front flash. Additional software features include AI Auto Scene Detection and Bokeh mode among others. The Tecno CAMON iACE2x and CAMON iACE2 run on 3,050mAh batteries.
