CAMON 16 Premier is set to transform the smartphone videography experience of its category consumers.

While last year, TECNO’s CAMON smartphones changed the game of photography by initiating an era of higher camera pixels, premium AI powered Ultra Night lens and pop-up cameras, CAMON 16 Premier heralds the transition to premium smartphone videography.
