The phone is made of plastic, measures 164.5 x 76.5 x 8.95mm in dimensions, and comes in three colors (Frost Silver, Deep Sea, Tranquil Green). On the back, it features a large 'TECNO CAMON’ branding, a fingerprint sensor, and a vertically aligned triple camera setup. The device is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC coupled with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. If needed, the storage can be further expanded via a MicroSD card slot. Further, the triple camera setup of the smartphone includes a 48MP Samsung S5KGM1ST03 (GM1) primary sensor, a QVGA GalaxyCore GC6153 sensor, and a 2MP GalaxyCore GC02M1B depth sensor. On the front, the phone sports a 8MP Samsung S5K3P9SP04 sensor for selfies and video calls inside the punch-hole. On the connectivity front, the handset supports 4G, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GNSS. Like most budget smartphones, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack and charges via a MicroUSB port. The device also houses the three essential sensors – ambient light sensor, accelerometer, and proximity sensor. Last but not least, the TECNO CAMON 17 runs HiOS 7.6 based on Android 11 and is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.
