We are almost in that time of the year when the big players in the mobile industry release their flagship devices. TECNO Mobile which is Africa largest mobile brand is preparing to introduce (if the leaked image we got is anything to go by) its flagship device into the market.
The Phantom series are TECNO’s biggest devices in terms of hardware, specification and aesthetics. The TECNO Phantom 6 which was released last year remains the most premium device till date from the company.
The big questions: What will be TECNO’s next Phantom device this year and what features should we expect?
For now we do not have an exclusive information on the name of device but our source claimed it will be more advanced than the Phantom 6, and attention will be paid to the camera technology and design.
In the past phone releases, The Asian mobile maker clearly aims to be ‘camera smartphone of choice’ in all its local markets and this philosophy is what we see being replicated across all her smartphones. From the privileged information we got the next Phantom device will be a follow up to the Phantom 6 released last year and from what we know the following areas will be greatly improved upon.
The Phantom sub brand of TECNO Mobile is in a class of its own and is the most classy and premium device from the brand. We therefore expect the camera of the next Phantom to be great improved upon.
According to rumour mills, the upcoming Phantom device will host a more improved dual camera similar to what obtained on the Samsung Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Rumours flying around says the camera will consist of a 20MP + 16MP dual back setup with advanced image processing capability. Dual back smartphone camera is the latest trending innovation right now and is good TECNO Mobile is joining the trend but that is if the rumour turns out to be true.
That’s not all, we heard that the device will spot a super thin bezel-less AMOLED display having a 1440*2560 pixel resolution. Higher resolution means the colour will be more vibrant and display will be brighter as well.
One of many choices we make when buying a smartphone is the display type. If the leaked image above is anything to go by, then, we should start saving for this beautiful device.
While not so much is known about the other specs of the upcoming device this time around, it’s safe to assume that it will at least come with 4GB of RAM and a fast processor.
For those who aren’t in the know, the last Phantom device; TECNO phantom 6 was launched around October last year, so if TECNO honours a 12-month refresh cycle, the THE NEXT PHANTOM could be coming in about few weeks from now. What do you think about the rumoured specs?
