Tecno launched the Camon 19 series of smartphones consisting of four models in total. These are the Camon 19 Pro 5G, Camon 19 Pro, Camon 19 Neo, and the Camon 19. So what’s special and unique about these smartphones
The Camon 19 Pro 5G is the first device to debut with Samsung’s ISOCELL RGBW color filter sensor which includes a white sub-pixel to the existing universal RGB configurations on phones.
The white sub-pixel allows the sensor to capture more light while avoiding damage to the red, green, and blue sub-pixels. By capturing more light, the sensor is able to produce brighter and clearer images in well-lit as well as low-light conditions.
Tecno has attached this sensor to a 64-megapixel camera system that has Tecno’s Glass + Plastic (G+P) lens. The G + P technology replaces plastic lenses with a crystal glass lens that enhances light intake by more than 208%. These lenses match well with Samsung’s RGBW sensor providing it with ample light to create clearer images.
The Camon 19 series features a clean-looking design with flat edges and flat rear panels. But what stands out the most in this aspect is the camera module. The Camon 19 series features a vertically aligned dual-camera island design. The top cutout houses the primary cameras while the bottom module features the auxiliary cameras. This design is quite similar to camera modules featured on Huawei and Honor smartphones.
All of the Camon 19 series except for the Camon 19 Neo have their auxiliary cameras placed horizontally. This makes the lower module appear like the eyes of a panda if you go for a color option with a white module.
Other than the camera module, the smartphone offers color options usually seen on OPPO devices. The gradient blue called Polar Blue and glossy black called Eco Black are both quite refined and give the device a premium look.
There is no denying that the Camon 19 Pro 5G is a pretty-looking device with its tapered edges, flat back, clean-looking camera module, and premium colors. However, the front panel is also a standout feature of the smartphone as it is surrounded by razor-thin bezels that measure just 0.98 mm. These thin bezels surround the 6.8-inch FHD+ screen on three sides, while the chin of the smartphone is a bit more prominent.
Bezels this thin are usually seen on the most expensive flagship devices that come with an OLED panel, however, Tecno provides it on the Camon 19 Pro 5G which has an LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate.
