The stars of the show were the Tecno Camon 19 Pro and the Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G – the world’s first smartphones with a 64MP RGBW by Samsung. The main shooter is combined with a G+P lens and resides in a big circular module followed by another one of the same size but housing two additional shooters on the back of the handset. One of the additional shooters is a 50MP telephoto one (called Pro Portrait) with 2x optical zoom and a 50mm focal length equivalent. OIS, EIS, Video Portrait, and Night Mode (for photos and videos) are also available to assist. Finally, there’s a 2MP auxiliary lens.
On the front, there’s a 6.8-inch display with an FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh, and the slimmest bezel in the industry (according to Tecno) – 0.98 mm. The Camon 19 series models are all certified for low blue light by TUV Rheinland. A punch hole in the center of the top of the display houses the 32MP selfie camera. It is combined with the industry’s first Super Flash Light which uses a plus multi-frame algorithm to further improve the picture quality during low lighting shooting. Power is supplied by a 5000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. Tecno Camon 19 Pro is based on a MediaTek Helio G96 chipset with 4GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of storage. The chip for the Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G remains unknown. What has been officially announced is that the 5G versions will arrive with Android 13 Beta and that the Camon 18 series will be updated to Android 12.
The Tecno Camon 19 Neo has a 6.8-inch IPS display with FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The selfie camera remains a 32MP unit, while the rear camera module is headed by a 48MP shooter. The chipset is a MediaTek Helio G85 unit with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The battery is avain a 5000 mAh unit but with slower, 18W charging.
There’s little information about the vanilla Tecno Camon 19. There’s plenty of info about the whole series but most of it is fake, so we will wait for official information from Tecno.
