TECNO has confirmed it is set to launch the Camon 18 Series this October. And the company has gone ahead to confirm that a device in the series, perhaps the Camon 18 PRO/Premier will debut the Mediatek Helio G96 chipset, at least in the African market. Which is a tad confusing given the Zero X is expected to be launched in September and is said to come with the same processor.
The newly launched MediaTek Helio G96 chipset is ideal for powerful 4G smartphones for the mainstream market, and is equipped with enhanced technology features which boost display and photography experiences.
TECNO CAMON series was first launched in 2018 with a dedication to bring pioneering camera technologies to African consumers. It has grown to be one of the most popular camera phones.
The Helio G96 chipset, TECNO says, will allow the TECNO CAMON series to further enhance its position and provide cutting edge display and photography capabilities.
TECNO is part of the brands under TRANSSION Holdings. Its CAMON series has focused on photography. TECNO says the MediaTek chip offering will combine with TECNO’s AI Vision Optimization Solution (TAIVOS) to create smoother, sharper and clearer photos and videos for the digitally native generation.
The Helio G96 SoC supports 120Hz Displays, Full HD+ resolutions, and up to 64MP cameras. It has support for dual camera depth captures, electronic image stabilisation (EIS), and roll shutter compensation (RSC) technologies. These could all be features we can expect from the Camon 18 Pro.
