TECNO has taken lots of strides to improve how its smartphones handle photography both in terms of hardware and software.

On the software side, they have TECNO’s AI Vision Optimization Solution (TAIVOS) to create smoother, sharper and clearer photos and videos.

On the hardware side, TECNO has depth engine for dual-camera bokeh captures, a Camera Control Unit (CCU) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technologies.

The tech company is borrowing a leaf from Apple and will be bringing Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization – this is also a first for Android smartphones.

Apple was the only smartphone company offering Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization that feature on the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 13 series.

This tech offers better and stable footage by improving the stabilization accuracy up to 350% when compared with lens-based Image Stabilization.

TECNO showcased how they’ll implement Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization in a recent demo video linked below.

We expect Sensor-Shift IS to ship with TECNO’s premium smartphones including the Phantom series and the Camon series starting next year.

Other improvements include using new RGBW sensors for its smartphones thanks to the partnership between TECNO and Samsung. The W pixel won’t feature a filter and thus absorb up to 60% more light inside the sensor.

TECNO is also shifting to use a combination of glass and plastic lenses that will increase the cameras light gathering by 30%. TECNO will also bring telescopic zoom lenses to its top phones.
