Global smartphone brand TECNO on Monday announced the launch of its CAMON 19 series & SPARK 9 Series in Kenya.

CAMON 19 Series
The CAMON 19 series designed for young fashionistas, is designed to overcome the traditional challenges associated with photography in nighttime and low-light conditions with style, with such features as a 64MP bright night portrait photography technology and the industry’s slimmest 0.98mm bezel.
The phone will also feature the RGBW colour filter sensor technology, which adds a white sub-pixel to the existing universal RGB configurations to enable light intake to be enhanced by 30 percent.
“We’re very proud to introduce the TECNO CAMON 19 series & SPARK 9, we continue to reinforce TECNO’s commitment to exploring more possibilities in the fusion of technology, innovation, and design,” said Peter Shi, Brand Manager, TECNO Mobile Kenya.
