Tecno, a Chinese smartphone maker has launched a telescopic macro lens for smartphone cameras. The macro lens enhances the quality of macro shots as well as the experience of capturing them. The lens comes with a motor set on the camera module, and extends from the body of the device whenever required. This allow users to capture close-up shots even of the objects placed far away.
In comparison to other macro lenses in smartphones, it comes with larger aperture level and better image quality. Also, it has 5x optical zoom. This is not for the first time that Techno has announced an innovative technology. Last month Techno came with a teaser of sensor shift IS technology for cameras of smartphones.
Earlier, Tecno Mobile launched Tecno Spark Go and Tecno Spark 8 and went official after launching its first 5G handset. The 5G handset was launched in Nigeria.
As of now, the company didn’t give any specific details about the camera. Techno has not even announced the exact date of when the smartphone with new telescopic lens will be launched. However, it is expected to be launched by the end of this year.
