Tecno officially unveiled the Camon 19 series in Kenya back in June. This series comprised of the standard Camon 19, the Camon 19 Pro and the Camon 19 5G and is available in Polar Blue, and Eco Black colour options. Tecno also announced that will be bringing what they are calling the Mondrian edition and well, they finally did through a new partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA).
Tecno Camon 19 Pro Mondrian Edition smartphone is the world’s first smart device that uses “sunlight drawing” technology to allow the phone to change colours in sunlight – creating a device that is both artistic and intuitive.
Tecno says its “sunlight drawing” technology – more formally known as polychromatic photoisomer technology – is a process that breaks through the technical limitations of single-colour or dual-colour discolouration. It’s inspired by the works of Mondrian, enabling the phone’s shell to follow geometrical patterns of colour change in the sun.
“We’ve taken everything our users love about CAMON series – great camera, stylish look, and super thin bezel – and created a smartphone experience that delivers a true one-of-a-kind aesthetic never before seen on a mobile device,” said Alex Liu, Regional Marketing Manager of Kenya, Tecno Mobile. “Today, with the continuous development of the consumer experience economy, art and commercial products are now intertwined. We are so excited to unveil the CAMON 19 Pro Mondrian Edition to reinforce our commitment to innovation – both in the arts and in tech.”
With this edition, TECNO says it’s paying tribute to Piet Mondrian by presenting polychromatic photoisomer technology in a classic and minimalist mobile phone design to perfectly inherit his pure artistic spirit. The phone recently collected two international design awards – the 2022 MUSE Design Award (US) and The A’ Design Award (Italy).
Tecno Camon 19 Pro Mondrian Edition features the same features like the Camon 19 Pro including a triple rear camera setup comprising of a 64-megapixel primary shooter with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS); a 50-megapixel dedicated portrait lens with 50mm equivalent focal length, then a third 2-megapixel depth sensor. The phone also has four LED flash on the rear. There is a 32-megapixel selfie shooter on the front.
It will be available for purchase at Safaricom shops, Jumia, MASOKO and all TECNO branded shops countrywide for KES 35,000.
