When you think of smartphones that push the envelope, your mind might immediately jump to particular smartphone brands. But it’s time to widen that spotlight, particularly towards the TECNO CAMON 30 series, a lineup that innovates in ways that can enhance daily experiences. Beyond its eye-catching design and impressive specs, which include the SONY IMX 890 Ultra Night Sensor, two lesser-known features in the CAMON 30 series deserve a deep dive: the Wet Hand Touch Technology and the integrated IR Blaster.

Navigating with Wet Fingers? No Problem!

One of the standout features that the TECNO CAMON 30 Series brings to the table is Wet Hand Touch Technology. Now, what does this mean for a regular user? Imagine you’re caught in a drizzle or just washing up and need to answer an urgent call or change the song you’re listening to. Usually, water interaction spells disaster for touchscreen responsiveness—frustrating users with erratic behaviour or no response.

However, with the CAMON 30 Pro 5G, this frustration is a thing of the past. This technology allows the screen to recognise and accurately register your touch inputs even when the screen or your fingers are wet. It’s almost as if the phone is mami water certified, a playful nod to its near-mythical resistance to water interference, short of having an official IP water resistance rating. This makes the CAMON 30 Pro 5G incredibly practical for everyday scenarios—no more wiping your hands dry before using your phone.

The Return of the IR Blaster

Moving on to another unexpected but equally exciting feature: the IR Blaster. Once a staple on some older smartphones, the IR Blaster has mainly been abandoned by most manufacturers in recent models. However, TECNO has decided to buck this trend by including an IR Blaster in the CAMON 30 Pro 5G.

This inclusion is a nod to practicality and control, allowing users to turn their smartphone into a universal remote for devices around the home that use infrared receivers, such as TVs, air conditioners, and fans. This feature is a subtle but significant addition for anyone who values an integrated and convenient control system over their home electronics. It turns your phone into a central command station for your living space.

While more flashy than a high-resolution camera or a foldable screen, both features focus on user experience enhancements that affect daily life. In a world where smartphones often blur into one another with similar designs and features, the TECNO CAMON 30 series stands out by meeting the basic expectations of what a smartphone should do and exceeding them with thoughtful innovations. 

The CAMON 30 Series is available, and with the EasyBuy option, you don’t have to worry about total payments as you can make a deposit and the balance spread over a while with 0% interest.
