Tecno Camon 17 Series Launching in Pakistan on 11 June

Tecno Pakistan is launching Camon 17 and 17 Pro on 11 June 2021 in Pakistan. Save the date! It will be a decent phone at an affordable cost. The series was already launched in else part of the World and now is debuting in Pakistan. Tecno Pakistan has high hopes for the launch as their previous launch of Spark 7 Pro saw good sales on the opening event.

The brand is known for low and medium-range phones and puts up decent specs at an affordable price. We tried to contact the marketing manager for some sneak peeks of the handset, however, could not get the required details.

It will be a virtual event on social media platforms which seems to be a norm in Pakistan, these days. Earlier we saw the launch of Infinix Note 10 Pro, then Vivo V1 was launched virtually on the 1st of June, 2021. And now in line is the much-awaited Camon 17 and Camon 17 Pro.

Competition of Camon 17 series

Both the phones would be competing against mid-range market phones. And that competition is tough in the likes of companies like Infinix, Xiaomi, and Vivo. As per the market survey carried out by our representative, People in the major cities of Karachi and Lahore prefer other companies over Tecno. This trust comes in due to the major success of the Xiaomi Note 10 series, the Vivo S series, and Infinix Note 10 series which fall in the same price category.

So Tecno would either have to drop the prices against these sets by keeping the profit margin low or would go for an extensive marketing campaign with renowned social media tech websites and Youtubers in Pakistan.

Earlier for the Spark 7 Pro, Tecno joined hands with YouTubers in Pakistan and we can say that the result was not bad. Let’s see how Tecno overcome this hurdle now, as the competition in the expected price segment of the Camon 17 series is a tough ask.

Interestingly, as of now, all the news is pouring in from Tecno Pakistan Official Facebook page in Pakistan. Tecno hasn’t uploaded any news or teasers on its official website, which seems strange. So marketing seems a low aspect as of now. Moreover, Tech websites in Pakistan are only publishing the specifications of the Camon 17 series, and no build-up to launch event has been made.

It would be interesting to see the build-up of Camon 17 series in Pakistan.
