TECNO Unveils CAMON 20 Series In Kenya: Offers Spectacular Photography Experience

by Brian Yatich

TECNO on Wednesday officially launched its new CAMON 20 Series in the Kenyan market.

According to the smartphone maker, the series promises to bring a spectacular portrait video and night portrait photography experience with the industry’s first CAMON PUZZLE deconstructionist design to its forward-looking users.

TECNO Brand Manager Peter Shi said that in a world driven by connectivity, where communication and information are paramount, they have strived to create a device that surpasses expectations and redefines the smartphone experience.

“The CAMON 20 is not just a phone; it is a gateway to a new era of possibilities, a companion that seamlessly integrates into every aspect of your life.”

TECNO CAMON 20 Premier 5G’s 5000 Times/s Sensor-Shift OIS Anti-shaking Technology and 50MP RGBW Ultra-Sensitive sensor enable the device to provide SLR camera level anti-shake video and crystal-clear night portrait quality.

Its 108MP Ultra Definition camera delivers breathtaking wide-angle shots for both photography and video shooting.

Meanwhile, inspired by the deconstructionist genre of postmodern architecture, the series fuses the magic skin with ceramic materials and creates the unique CAMON PUZZLE design.

TECNO CAMON 20 Series to Roll Out Android 14 Beta

TECNO has also been confirmed to be one of the first smartphone manufacturers to offer Google’s Android 14 Beta release and will run it on the CAMON 20 series, bringing a range of upgrades and enhancements to elevate the CAMON 20 series’ total experience to greater heights.

Android 14 aims to further enhance the CAMON 20 series’ user experience by delivering a host of privacy, security, performance, and user customization updates.

Android 14 Beta for TECNO CAMON 20 series:

The Android 14 Beta will help to further enhance the CAMON 20 series’ user experience in ways such as:

  • Higher Privacy Level: Starting with Android 14, apps with a target SDK Version lower than 23 cannot be installed, making it harder for malware to avoid such security and privacy improvements. Ultimately, it serves to help improve security and privacy for smartphone users.
  • Longer Battery Life: Android 14’s updated functionality enables the system to better handle background tasks, downloads, and uploads, etc., which in turn improves system efficiency to reduce power drain for longer battery life.
  • Larger Fonts and Smarter Scaling: To provide low-vision users with better accessibility options, Android 14 allows larger font scaling. A non-linear scaling curve strategy ensures large text and small text elements scale at different rates to prevent large elements from scaling too much, while also preserving the proportional hierarchy between elements of different sizes.

5000 Times/s Sensor-Shift OIS Anti-shaking Technology for Portrait Video:

In the pursuit of steady portrait video, TECNO has incorporated SLR camera in-body image stabilization into the CAMON 20 Premier 5G.

The devices with 5,000 Times/s Sensor-Shift OIS Anti-Shaking Technology can compensate for shakes up to 5,000 times per second. As a result, images and video are crisp and vivid, even when taken while moving at speed.

The technology is the most cutting-edge anti-shake solution in the industry, aiming to popularize the SLR camera anti-shake innovations on smartphones. Unlike traditional anti-shake solutions that compromise image quality, it preserves every single ray of light without cropping the image.

Even in low light, up to 93% of the footage shot can still be achieved. Meet the best anti-shake solution for portrait video shooting so far that captures all the emotions in motion!

50MP RGBW Ultra-Sensitive Sensor for Night Portrait:

TECNO’s innovative technology of RGBW has brought very brilliant night portraits on its products. By replacing the “green” array solution in the traditional RGGB color filter with a “white” one, the RGBW sensor allows more light to be captured. While the 1G+6P lens increases the light intake by replacing one of the plastic lenses with a glass one in the process when light reaches the main sensor.

The main sensor on TECNO CAMON 20 Premier 5G is also increased from 1/1.73 to 1/1.56 (the single pixel size from 0.8μm to 1.0μm), with a 56.25% larger light-sensitive area to ensure images are as close to real-life scenes as possible. With greater light transmission, TECNO CAMON 20 Premier 5G lets users capture crystal-clear night portraits in stunning definition, never losing a detail in the dark.

Groundbreaking Innovation with CAMON PUZZLE Deconstructionist Design:

Inspired by the deconstructionist genre of postmodern architecture, TECNO fuses the aesthetic concepts of international fashion brands and pioneering designers to create the unique CAMON PUZZLE design.

TECNO tries for the first time to engrave with 20 irregular ribs in a luxury lychee pattern Magic Skin while sapphire-grade nanocrystalline ceramic is integrated into the device’s back cover construction.

The combination of advanced materials and bold design challenges traditional smartphone design language and lets CAMON 20 users make a stylish statement.

The fusion of the magic skin with ceramic materials realized by TECNO’s designers creates incredible comfort with a natural tactile texture that doesn’t attract fingerprints.

With a unique appearance and high-quality materials, the CAMON 20 Series brings industry design standards into a new era. As a result, the design wins the prestigious MUSE Design Award 2023 as a gold winner and highlights TECNO’s position as a pioneer of smartphone design.
