Tecno Camon 19 Pro specifications
Tecno Camon 19 Pro sports a 6.8-inch full-HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate and TüV Rheinland certification for minimising blue light as well as reducing eye strain. There is a hole-punch cutout on the top-centre of the screen for the front camera. Tecno says that the back panel has a diamond-like coating of 200 million crystals for a premium texture. Under the hood, the phone gets a MediaTek Helio G96 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM.
For photography, the Tecno Camon 19 Pro comes with a triple rear camera setup which is distributed in a double ring design. There is a main 64-megapixel sensor which is said to be paired with an industry-first RGBW+G+P lens for ‘Bright Night Portrait’. Tecno says it co-developed the camera system with Samsung. The sensor in the system is said to mimic the focus of a human eye and the glass lens increases the light intake by more than 208 percent.
There is a 50-megapixel second camera that is paired with a lens that offers 2X optical zoom. The third camera has a 2-megapixel sensor, and the setup is accompanied by four LED flashlights that are said to work in tandem with an advanced algorithm enabling the camera to recognise low-light conditions and provide the necessary light for clear image. On the front is a 32-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calls. The Tecno Camon 19 Pro packs a 5,000mAh battery with 33W Flash Charge technology.
