Tecno Phantom 9 is finally here! This phone comes after a long wait, almost two years after its predecessor, the Tecno Phantom 8 was released. The phone will be launched in Kenya in the second week of July.
It features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with 1080*2340 pixels resolution. It runs on Android v9.0 operating system out of the package with Tecno’s HiOS 5 UI. At the heart of this device is MediaTek Helio P35 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. It has 128GB onboard storage space and a microSD card slot that take cards of up to 512GB.
As with other Phantom series phones that we have seen in the past, the Phantom 9 has an attractive camera profile. This mobile phone is equipped with a triple lens camera at the back made up of a 16 megapixels lens, an 8 megapixels lens and a 2 megapixels lens. The rear camera is accompanied by a Quad-LED flash. The Front camera is 32 megapixels and is accompanied by a dual LED flash. A 3500mAh battery powers the Tecno Phantom 9.
Other highlights of the new Tecno flagship include an in-display fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth v5.0, and fast charging support.
Judging from the past pricing trends, its price is expected to start at KSh. 29,999. The price might be lower when it’s finally released, especially if Tecno intends to compete effectively with phones below 30k from other popular brands.
