Tecno Mobile has announced that it will be making the Android 13 beta available on its latest CAMON 19 Pro 5G. With those, the Chinese tech company joins the first batch of smartphone manufacturers to offer this on its device. While we await to see what the device will look like, the company also made it known that it will be launching the new smartphone come June this year.
It could be recalled that officially unveiled Android 13 Beta 2 at the Google I/O 2022 held from May 11 to 12. The new update comes, delivering both superior performance and privacy & security to users. Speaking, Mr Stephen HA, Vice President of TRANSSION and GM of TECNO Mobile said;
We are glad that through the long-term partnership with Google, TECNO has been providing our users with the latest Android system to bring them extraordinary using experiences. The TECNO CAMON 19 Pro (5G) with Android 13 Beta will definitely allow our users to be among the first to access new features and bring them pleasures.
The Android 13 update will come featuring some key optimizations, that include;
- Stricter Notification Permission – Privacy and user trust are core principles of Android products. To give users control over the notifications they want to follow, Android 13 introduces POST_NOTIFICATIONS — a new runtime permission. This means that apps need to request notification permissions from users before posting notifications.
- Color vector fonts – Android 13 adds rendering support for COLR version 1 (spec, intro video) fonts and updates the system emoji to the COLRv1 format. COLRv1 is a new, highly compact, font format that renders quickly and crisply at any size. COLRv1 can be adopted for the app starting in Developer Preview 2.
- Convenient Text Conversion API – Android 13 allows apps to call the new text conversion API, which will make it easier for users to find the content they need faster and easier.
- Upgraded Bluetooth LE Audio – With Low Energy (LE) audio, users would be able to share and broadcast their audio to others, or subscribe to public broadcasts for information, entertainment and more, while seamlessly switching between different use cases.
Meanwhile, TECNO also declares that they will be updating the Android 12 on its CAMON 18 series. It said that the company will continue to be dedicated to making their users, the early adopters of the latest system and cutting-edge technology breakthroughs with the freshest product experience.
