Just months after Tecno Camon 15 Premier came into the market, Camon 16 Premier is here. The phone was launched yesterday via an online Augmented Reality launch that integrated technology and photography. Thanks to AR technology at the grand launch which was a first, the audience were able to use their smartphones to enter different segments of the event to immerse themselves fully in the virtual launch.
The theme of the phone is ‘Break into the next level’ and this should be an indication of the power of the features that the phone comes with. Among them is a flagship-level 64MP ultra quad and the first pioneering 48MP dual front camera.
We know by now that the Tecno Camon series has always been geared towards photography and this phone promises to provide such good shooting options that even professional photographers will be at home with it.
Other features that the Camon 16 comes with are a lens that is akin to what we see with our eyes 4K high definition video quality. Yes, through the use of high quality imaging technology combined with Artificial Intelligence, the company has been able to make a phone with film quality that is on par with IMAX movies. With the CAMON 16 Premier, you can have the power of the next blockbuster right in your fingertips and this gives users a really wide scope to explore things that were earlier not possible on smartphone cameras.
The phone is equipped with the TAIVOS technology (Tecno AI Vision Optimization Solution). This is an image processing and enhancement lab for the CAMON series. Coupled with the 64MP rear camera and 48MP front cameras we’ve mentioned earlier, good photography is the last thing that users of this phone will have to worry about. The phone actually has 64+8+2+2MP super powerful camera modules and each camera lens has its own function.
With all these and more features, how is the battery and charging like? Well the phone has a 4500mAh battery with a fast charge ability to ensure 70% charge in just 30 minutes. This way, users will not be carrying around a powerful but battery challenged phone. It also has charging protection and safe power recovery. To deal with gadget heating, the Camon 16 Premier has a new heat pipe added to take away heat, so that surface temperature is reduced by 2 degrees while the phone is charging. This reduces the chances of battery damage while heating and ensures that the battery lasts longer.
The phone also has a powerful processor so that all this superior photography does not come with glitches, as well as gaming and networking. The phone will also be able to handle multiple complex algorithms without hanging and dragging about. This is something that no user wants, and more so professional photographers or film makers as they do their thing.
All these innovations that the Tecno Camon 16 Premier has to offer have not gone unrecognized. The phone has bagged itself the Camera Technology Innovation Smartphone Gold Award ” for its outstanding camera functions at the Internationale FunkausstellungBerlin (IFA). This is the world’s largest and most prestigious home appliance and consumer electronics event.
Tecno also bagged the championship in the world’s premier computer vision event at the Look In Person of CVPR 2020 in the track 5 of Dark Complexion Segmentation competition. Shortly after, the company also announced that it had gained the approval by the United Nations specialized agency International Telecommunication Union SG16 (ITU-T SG16) on a new work item of Reference architecture for mobile terminal computational photography system to lead the formulation of the first international standard for mobile terminal computing and photography systems.
