I want to take you through the differences between the TECNO Camon 30 Pro 5G and TECNO Camon 30 Premier. Both devices belong to the Camon 30 series released this year 2024. They are the top two devices, with the Premier being top dog and then the Pro following after.

These two devices share lots of specifications and features, but there is also one major difference between them.

Similarities

For example, they both run Android 14. They both use the Dimensity 8200 Ultimate chipset. They also have the same 12GB RAM. For internal storage, both of them have 512 GB but in addition, the Pro also has a 256 GB internal storage variant, so that’s another minor difference. As such, the Camon 30 Pro has two storage options, while the Camon 30 Premier has only one.

The TECNO Camon 30 Pro 5G and TECNO Camon 30 Premier both have a 5,000 mAh battery with 70W fast charging, and they both have a 50 megapixel selfie camera, as well as a 50MP main camera at the back.

There’s a tiny difference in the screen size: the Camon 30 Premier has a 6.77-inch display, while the Camon 30 Pro has a 6.78-inch display, meaning that there is a 0.01-inch difference in the screen sizes. You’re not going to notice that difference. They have the same display technology type. So, by all means, these two devices are identical twins, both in visual appearance and in internal specs and features.

What then is the main difference between these two phones? Why is one called the Pro or Pro 5G, and why is the other one called Premier 5G?

Differences Between TECNO Camon 30 Pro 5G and TECNO Camon 30 Premier

The big difference is in the rear camera. The Camon 30 Pro has a 50MP main camera, a wide angle lens. In addition, it has a 50MP Ultra-wide angle lens and then it has a 2 megapixel depth sensor for your bokeh/portrait photos.

The Camon 30 Premier has a much more powerful, much more comprehensive, rear camera setup. It has that same 50MP wide-angle lens as the main camera, but then, it also has a 50 megapixel periscope telephoto lens that is capable of 3x optical zoom. This does not exist on the Camon 30 Pro and that’s the major difference between the two devices.

In addition, it has the 50-megapixel ultra-wide camera that the Camon 30 Pro has. That’s beautiful; that’s massive.

Much Ado about a periscope telephoto camera

A periscope telephoto camera is one that allows you to zoom into objects objects far away. If you want to capture an object that’s far away – a building, a bird in flight – you want to capture the moon, you want to capture the solar eclipse and all that, you can zoom in with a periscope telephoto camera and that’s the big difference.

Periscope cameras are usually more expensive to build so that will account also for the difference in prices between the Camon 30 Pro and the Camon 30 Premier.

If you have never used a telephoto camera, you should try it as soon as you can afford one. A periscope telephoto camera is an advanced type of telephoto camera and the Camon 30 Premier has it. That’s the main difference between the TECNO Camon 30 Pro 5G and TECNO Camon 30 Premier.

Besides the different rear camera configuration and module, if you put the TECNO Camon 30 Pro 5G and TECNO Camon 30 Premier side by side, they pretty much look the same. If you look at their specifications side by side, almost everything else is the same. It is at that rear camera setup that you will find the difference.

So, remember that the two phones, the TECNO Camon 30 Pro 5G and TECNO Camon 30 Premier, are pretty much identical twins. They have so much DNA, so many internal and external features, in common that you could mix them up and take them for the same device. That powerful camera at the back of the Camon 30 Premier is what puts it in a different league of its own.
