As TECNO continues to improve its camera technologies, the brand revealed at MWC 2022 more details about its upcoming RGBW sensor that’s co-developed with Samsung. To debut with the Camon 19 Series, the RGBW sensor adds a white sub-pixel to the current RGB array, which should aim to improve light sensitivity, especially in low-light situations.
“Its first launch on TECNO’s CAMON series bringing us one step closer to the dream of delivering DSLR-grade photography into the hands of worldwide consumers. ” Samsung Electronics R&D Head Pan Xuebao said.
Other details about the upcoming RGBW sensor from TECNO is that it will have 64-megapixels and will use the brand’s Glass+Plastic lens technology. When combined with what the RGBW sensor offers, TECNO’s upcoming camera tech aims to offer a two-fold improvement in overall picture quality.
TECNO explains that the addition of white pixels should help increase light sensitivity by as much as 1.7x compared to the green color filter. Aside from improved light sensitivity, color accuracy and brightness is also improved as well.
“The use of RGBW will increase camera capabilities and increase flexibility on TECNO CAMON 19 series to respond to consumer demands, to highlight natural human features and colours to showcase aesthetics and diversity across different markets,” TECNO Senior Product Manager Leo Lee said.
The 64-megapixel RGBW ISOCELL sensor and Glass+Plastic Lens will debut later this year with the TECNO Camon 19 series.
