The thing about most budget smartphones is that they skip a few features here and there. You may have an affordable device, but you will have to compromise on one thing or another.
Tecno, a global smartphone brand, understands this and has shipped powerful smartphones with high features and low prices. The company’s newest camera smartphone in India, the Tecno Camon 16, has a number of great features at an easy-to-affordable price.
Segment-leading camera setup
Simply put, the new Tecno Camon 16 is a camera-focused smartphone with powerful internals. The phone has also won a number of world class awards. Tecno Camon 16 comes with a flagship-grade 64 megapixel ultra-quad AI camera setup. The camera promises a clear photo experience in its segment.
When I tried the phone, the camera’s interface seemed extremely easy to use, with a variety of useful options to choose from. Focusing on objects was relatively quick and I was able to take some amazing photos with this phone.
In addition to the powerful 64-megapixel primary camera sensor, the Tecno Camon also has a 2-megapixel depth control lens, a 2-megapixel macro shooting lens, an AI lens and a penta flash to take better photos in low light conditions.
Take beautiful and clearer photos
The Tecno Camon 16’s 64-megapixel ultra quad camera setup allows you to capture stunning photos that are ultra-clear and perfect for capturing all of your precious moments. The company’s own image processing and enhancement solution TAIVOS can optimize your photos and videos for the best possible quality.
The amazing 64 megapixel primary camera setup helped me capture some stunning, clear photos. The AI-based camera capabilities in the Tecno Camon 16 added that extra spark that my relatively poor photography skills lacked and made all of my photos glow on my social media feeds.
Great photos in portrait mode, even in the dark
Thanks to the new and improved Super Night Mode V2.0 from TAIVOS, you can take great photos in portrait format even in the dark. The new system can capture great detail in extremely dark conditions for more professional portraits.
I’ve taken photos in portrait mode before, but I’ve always been scared of using them in the dark. With the Tecno Camon 16, I was able to take excellent photos in portrait mode in poor lighting conditions without complications. It will make my life a lot easier now.
With the new Tecno Camon 16, you no longer have to worry about the lighting conditions while taking portraits of your loved ones. Portraits are now more sophisticated and come in vivid colors in the new Super Night 2.0 mode.
Eye Auto Focus technology
Eye Focus allows the camera lens to focus on your eyes to get different angles of your face while you are walking or moving. Eye autofocus is a feature that you won’t find on smartphones in this segment. The technology makes it possible to snap some amazing photos while making you the star of the show at the same time.
Powerful AI-based beautification functions
The new AI beautification features in the Tecno Camon 16 are based on the database of the company’s research and development team to study dark skin. The new face detection and bokeh algorithms can adapt to darker skin and provide a more customizable beautification experience. In addition to the beauty of the face, it also offers AI functions for body contouring to get a perfect body shape.
Low-light photos now look better
With the new YUV Super Night mode in the Tecno Camon 16, you can take bright and clear photos in the dark. The next time you’re on vacation, you can capture those evening shots perfectly thanks to the new and improved features in Dark Mode. With the 10x zoom in the Tecno Camon 16, you can easily capture other objects.
The Tecno Camon 16 was able to take some great photos at night. Given that I now work from home, it has been a problem all along for me to take photos indoors where the lighting conditions are not adequate. Now I don’t have to worry at all anymore.
Great videos to improve your social media profiles
Aside from photos, the Tecno Camon 16 is also perfect for great videos. The new short video mode lets you record stunning videos that everyone on your social media feeds will love. The camera allows you to record high quality videos in 2K quality and offers slow motion videos at 120 frames and 240 frames per second. With this feature, you can let your creativity run wild and be an instant star on social media.
Tecno Camon 16 also supports AI Beautification 4.0 when recording video so you always look your best no matter where you go. You can also blur the background while recording video and add a movie-like experience to your personal videos. My videos look so good now that everyone keeps asking me the secret.
The 16-megapixel front camera is perfect for all selfies
It also supports the company’s Eye Auto Focus technology and has a dual front flash system that allows you to take great selfies in the dark. You can also use the selfie camera to record videos in 2K QHD resolution and apply bokeh effects and beauty filters to your videos.
A big, impressive display
To enjoy all of your favorite content, the Tecno Camon 16 offers a beautiful 6.8-inch HD + display with a punch-hole design. It’s bright, wide, and clearer so you can watch your favorite TV shows and movies, play games, and do it all in one immersive experience.
