After focusing on entry-level and mid-range smartphones for a long time, TECNO Mobile is taking baby steps in entering the premium smartphone line. The first step in that direction is the TECNO Phantom X.
Unlike other Snapdragon 888-powered flagship phones, the company is starting small by equipping the TECNO Phantom X with a slightly slower but still powerful MediaTek Helio G95 processor. Other than that, the rest of the specs and features are really premium.
The main highlight here is the cameras. There’s the 50-megapixel main shooter with a large 1/1.3-inch sensor, 1.2µm native pixels and utilizes pixel binning technology. Dual Pixel and Laser autofocus are also present.
A secondary 13-megapixel telephoto camera with a 50mm portrait lens is also onboard. Of course, 8-megapixel ultra-wide is also here.
The dual front-facing cameras are also quite notable. There’s a sharp 48-megapixel camera for selfies, next to an 8-megapixel ultra-wide for group shots. A dual-tone flash is also here as a bonus.
Those cameras are on top of a colorful 6.7-inch Super AMOLED panel with a smooth 90Hz refresh rate. It uses a curved Gorilla Glass 5 to add on that overall premium look and feel.
Being a premium phone, it has a fingerprint scanner beneath the screen.
The battery is not the largest for the size, but just enough to maintain that slim profile. It’s a 4,700mAh capacity that can reach a 0-70% charge in just 30 minutes via the 33W charger.
Sadly, the pricing and availability for the TECNO Phantom X are yet to be announced. We’ll update this article once we have a word.
