The brand ambassador of global mobile phone brand TECNO Ghana, Stonebwoy, has unveiled its new smartphone the CAMON 16 series which boasts an industry-first rear 64-megapixel quad camera and a front 48-megapixel camera to the Ghanaian market.

The CAMON 16 series comes in two variants the Camon 16 Premier and the Camon 16 Pro. The Camon 16 Premier sports a 6.9” FHD Dot-in display, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, while the Camon 16 Pro comes with a slightly smaller 6.8” Dot-in display with its fingerprint sensor located at the back of the phone.

One of the main attractions of both phones is the trademarked TAIVOS™ technology (which stands for TECNO AI Vision Optimization Solution" which created an exceptional photo experience.

Explaining the TAIVOS™ technology which is used by the cameras of the CAMON series, TECNO Training Manager, Cyril Amarteifio said one of the key outputs of TAIVOS™ is providing users an excellent and unprecedented visual experience, especially at night and low-light environments.

"This capability means that TAIVOS™ can filter image noise better and optimize image clarity, thereby enhancing night photography effects. Not long ago, TAIVOS™ technology won the CVPR 2020 LIP global competition, the first place in the dark complexion segmentation track, which also validates the prowess of the CAMON 16 Premier," Mr Amarteifio said at the launch ceremony last Friday in Accra.

He added that the device is currently on sale at the 46 TECNO Mobile outlets that are dotted across the country and on the TECNO Ghana online store.

In brief comments before unveiling the phone, the dancehall star Stonebwoy urged all Ghanaians to purchase the phone.

"The CAMON 16 is being unveiled today but as the brand ambassador of TECNO, I was in a privileged position to use the device before it came on the market and I can tell you that it is the best phone that I have ever used.

"The pictures are very clear and I use it for all my engagements on social media".

Other specs

To enable smooth multi-tasking and flawless mobile experience, both phones are packed with massive 128GB of internal memory, differing only in RAM; the Camon Premier with 8GB and the 6GB for the Camon Pro.

The smartphones are also powered by a non-removable Li-Pro 4500 mAh battery with fast charging 33W for the Camon 16 Premier and 500mAh with fast charging 18W for the Camon 16 Pro for a long battery running experience.

Another major highlight of the phones is the revolutionary 960 and 120 frame slow-motion video support for the Camon 16 Premier and Camon 16 Pro respectively.

The next level camera phones are also equipped with a high-speed MTK G90T Octa-core 2.0GHz processor.

Malware concerns

The Accra Branch Manager of TECNO, Mr Ernest Sonkor also dismissed concerns that TECNO devices come pre-installed wit malware.

"TECNO does not have any malware, this was coming from competitors in the market. The CAMON 16 will give you the best experience in the market".
