Tecno Introduces Telescopic Macro lens For Smartphones
This is a telephoto macro lens that extends from the body, as seen in the video below, and allows you to take close-up shots without having to get too close to the subject. It offers 5x optical zoom and the end result is comparable to the main camera’s, the company claims. That’s something we haven’t seen before with the current macro cameras. The tech also allows for a bigger aperture, which is crucial for good photos.
Furthermore, though yet to provide specifics, Tecno says the design is quite compact and doesn’t need big housing.
The company didn’t reveal exactly when we should expect a Tecno smartphone with the new telescopic lens but it will be this year, that’s for sure.
