Announcement. Tecno Camon 19 Pro and Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G are the first smartphones with an RGBW sensor

Tecno held a solemn event in New York yesterday and showed our strange world a quartet of smartphones of the Camon 19 series. It consists, firstly, of two middle peasants. This is actually
Tecno Camon 19 and plus very similar to it
Tecno Camon 19 Neo. Well, the third and fourth devices of the series are somewhat more serious and curious
Tecno Camon 19 Pro 4G and
Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G.

This news is about two older smartphones of the series, about those that are Pro. You can read about the other two devices here.

Tecno Camon 19 Pro 4G

Tecno Camon 19 Pro 4G is interesting for its cameras.Briefly: The front has a resolution of 32 MP, I have nothing to say about it. There are three rear cameras, 64 + 50 + 2 MP. Laser autofocus, optical stabilization. Everything is serious.

  • 64 MP - the debut of the Samsung ISOCELL GWB sensor,which is made by Koreans from Samsung in collaboration with Tecno. This is the first sensor that is an RGBW sensor. In addition to the traditional red (Red), green (Green) and blue (Blue) pixels, it also contains white pixels (White), whatever that means. It is claimed that this technology improves (compared to traditional) light sensitivity, i.e. improves the quality of pictures taken in low light. They also promise improved color reproduction. How everything really is - we will find out when the first reviews appear. As long as they are not visible.
  • 50 MP - telephoto, portrait camera. Provides 2x optical zoom.
  • 2 MP - depth sensor.

Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G has the same main camera. But there is no TV. Instead, a 2 MP macro camera of little interest. And the front camera is simpler, only 16 MP.

Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G

Other characteristics of smartphones are not so exciting.

Chipsets MediaTek Helio G96 for Tecno Camon 19 Pro4G and MediaTek Dimensity 810 from its counterpart with support for 5G networks. In fact, the chips are close. From the first smartphone, we expect 300-350 thousand points in AnTuTu. From the second, perhaps a little more. But what will reach four hundred thousand is doubtful. But the Dimensity 810 has support for 5G networks, plus it is made using a more modern process technology.

All is well with memory. 8 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Is there support for memory cards? And it is unknown.

The screens are interesting, first of all, with a high refresh rate - up to 120 Hz. They are also large, 6.78″ (109 cm²). And the resolution is more than decent, 1080×2460 (396 ppi).

Batteries are good, capacious - 5000 mAh. Charging at 33 W - 65 minutes to fill the battery with electricity to one hundred percent.

Other. There are NFC modules, side fingerprint scanners, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi.

The prices are announced humane.

Only $280 (₽15900) for the older (8+256 GB) version of Tecno Camon 19 Pro 4G.

Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G is slightly more expensive, $320 (₽18,100) for the same 8+256 GB.

If all of a sudden these smartphones are available for similar money, then this is very, very interesting.
