TECNO, a Chinese business, revealed some of its latest developments and achievements in imaging technologies earlier today. These statements were made at the Counterpoint technology research firm’s “Global Mobile Camera Trends 2022: Innovation discussion” webinar.
TECNO addressed recent successes and advancements in light sensitivity, picture and video stabilization, zoom, and high-resolution – powered by technologies such as RGBW and G+P, Sensor-Shift, and telescopic lenses – aimed at users across important markets in Africa, India, and other countries. Some of these new technologies will be accessible in TECNO’s 2022 product selection, according to the company. These innovations, according to TECNO, will transform a phone’s photographic capabilities, allowing consumers to take studio-quality images and movies without having to be a professional photographer.
So, what exactly are these game-changing innovations that TECNO mentioned?
TECNO has made tremendous improvement in light sensitivity, according to Jimmy Hsu, Senior Product Manager of picture technology, thanks to a self-developed RGBW sub-pixel rendering technique that boosts the amount of light recorded by the CMOS sensor by 60%. He also stated that the G+P (glass + plastic) lens technology will increase light intake by 30%, culminating in a total increase of 200 percent and providing consumers with a new low-light imaging experience.
In 2022, TECNO hopes to introduce its Sensor-Shift technology, making it the first Android phone brand to do so. Sensor-Shift image stabilization compensates for vibrations by using sensor movements rather than lens movements. He also stated that with future algorithm optimization, the control precision of TECNO’s Sensor-Shift will approach 350 percent of its current level.
The company is also working on a concept phone with a telescopic lens geared to launch in 2022. The lens provides advantages such as lossless zoom and a larger aperture. The company added that the “compressed back focal length (BFL) design with motorized stretchable lenses will significantly reduce the thickness of the phone, integrating consumer’ demands for simple appearance and high performance.”
Apart from TECNO, DXOMARK, and Samsung also took part in the webinar, with Samsung’s VP and Head of R&D, Pan Xuebaoshowing, noting that with their Tetra and Nona technologies, Samsung is near to delivering DSLR-grade photography to clients through smartphone brands. With ISOCELL, speed is also a priority, with faster focussing capabilities and a solution to the ever-increasing camera bump problem.
