Tecno has released a suspicious Android 12 Beta update for the Camon 17 smartphone, suspicious because unlike other smartphone OEMs that usually send updates like this over the air, and all you’ll have to do as a user is simply go to your phone’s software settings, download and install the update;
Tecno has made theirs a bit difficult and even more technical, such that, if you’re not familiar with flashing smartphone ROMs in the past, I wouldn’t advise that you don’t do this on your smartphone, because, not only will you lose all the data stored on your phone, not if you backed it up beforehand though, but, if anything goes wrong during the said update or flashing process, you might end up with a bricked Tecno Camon 17 phone.
And seeing the fact that Beta updates usually do not come without bugs and errors, I don’t think it’s really worth risking your phone for it.
But, if you still insist, and want to go ahead with the update, below are the steps to download and install the Android 12 Beta update on your Tecno Camon 17 mobile phone.
