/ 09:00 AM January 21, 2022

TECNO, a premium smartphone brand focused on emerging markets, is working with BBC Storyworks, BBC Studios’ in-house commercial content studio, who have created a short film The Future Lens: Looking Ahead With TECNO to explore the meaning of mobile camera innovation.

The video showcases TECNO’s inclusive mobile camera technology for each user through its unique ‘glocalization’ strategy, detailing the work that has been done to better reflect different communities.

In the piece, TECNO explains how they spotted and solved gaps between fast-developing mobile camera technologies and consumers’ actual needs in various situations so as to best meet the unique needs of local users, environments, and cultures.

For example, to optimise portrait imaging quality, TECNO has built an enormous database that covers seven skin types and 76 skin categories at its TAVIOS Laboratory. So everyone, regardless of how they look, gets to enjoy cameras that know how to make them look their best. In the photo-taking process, TECNO’s progressive algorithms will automatically gather information from users’ environments, recognizing various opportunities for image enhancement. 

Li Jiangtao, Senior Director of TECNO Imaging Product and Head of TAIVOS™ Lab said: “ It’s a great experience for us to work with BBC Storyworks, to share our insights and to tell the story behind our mobile camera development. The short film explores the meaning behind ‘Future Lens’, TECNO’s key concept on mobile camera innovation – to provide more inclusive technology for everyone, creating a world with more understanding without limits .”

Richard Pattinson, SVP BBC StoryWorks said: “We are delighted to be working with TECNO on this piece. TECNO secured our content production team superb access for interviews, including photographer Justin Amoafo, the frontline staff at TECNO mobile camera department as well as allowing us to visit the TECNO mobile phone manufacturing sites and camera labs. This allowed us to build a complete picture for the audience of what TECNO does and how they do it, as well as their goals for a more inclusive future.”
