This signing has intensified TECNO’s determination of globalization allowing them to break into emerging markets around the world to become a leader in those areas. As the brand continues to grow on the world stage, TECNO now finds itself competing with major mainstream brands, who will undoubtedly take note of this new partnership.

The spirit of ceaselessly striving for excellence represented by Chris Evans in his career pursuit perfectly upholds TECNO’s brand motto ‘young at heart’ and the resolve to stop at nothing to achieve excellence in emerging markets globally.

In the last 2 years, TECNO has achieved significant positive results in its globalization by strengthening its technology innovation, stylish design, detailed elegant taste, professional photography experience as well as its worldwide partner network. The industry has witnessed TECNO’s solid achievements in mobile photography by its bagging of the championship after competing with the world’s best minds in its first match at the Look In Person (LIP) competition at Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) 2020 in Track 5: Dark Complexion Portrait Segmentation Challenge. In the latest report by industry leading research institution, Counterpoint, TECNO is also recognized as one of the few brands that have made break-throughs in AI-enhanced mobile photography and videography. TECNO’s excellent photographic performance has also led the brand to earning distinctions at the Guinness World Records 2020 with the largest flip book shot by its pioneer photography product line, the CAMON series and also at the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) with “Camera Technology Innovation Smartphone Gold Award 2020”.
TECNO’s increasing market share also speaks loudly for its globalization footprint. In 2020, TECNO led the industry through a tough year, where brands took a hit in terms of smartphone sales.
