Tecno Phantom 8 Features, Specifications and Price
Tecno mobile has just released the Tecno Phantom 8. This is the latest flagship device from the big Chinese smartphone company.
After so many sneak-peeks and leaks of the smartphone, it’s finally out with amazing features to show for it. Tecno fans will surely like this phone and it is definitely going to trend as we close in towards this festive season. Let’s checkout the amazing specs of this new smartphone.
The Tecno Phantom 8 does not have Bezel-less display like we were hoping for but it sports an interesting 5.7-inch IPS screen with about 75.1% screen to body ratio. It also has a Corning Gorilla glass to reduce the intensity of scratches on its screen.
In terms of camera, the Tecno Phantom 8 has a dual-camera with a stunning Sony-made IMX386 12MP and 13MP sensors at the front and back of the smartphone respectively. The 12MP selfie camera has a 2X optical eye zoom capacity while the 13MP back camera is stepped up with 10X super zoom capacity.
Under the hood, it is powered by an octa-core Mediatek Helio P25 processor that clocking up to 2.6GHz. Here’s where it gets interesting. The smartphone is made up of a powerful 6GB of RAM coupled with 64GB internal storage capacity. To be candid, I am really impressed. Although, I was expecting the Android 8 Oreo OS but the Tecno Phantom 8 will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat. Hopefully, there will be an Android Oreo update later on.
