I’m quite sure Tecno understands that its buyers can’t trade a good battery life for a wonderful design, no body would like to have a slim and sleek phone with poor talk time or standby. Most users especially in African countries, want a phone that fits comfortably in the palm of their hands or slips easily into their pockets and at the same time not having to worry about its battery life.
As we wait for Tecno to make some official announcements in mid September on what should be its next flagship device, we have seen lots of speculations and teasing pictures revealing what the Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus would look like both on the outside and inside.
The device is rumoured to be “as slim as an envelope” with a 4050 mAh-battery capacity and dual cameras, which are rare and commendable and are only seen in high-end phones in recent times. Last Year’s Phantom 5 was considered as overpriced by quite a large number of people so we hope for a more modest price for the Phantom 6 phones. The size of the Phantom 6 is reportedly around 5.5″, with the 6 Plus said to be 5.95″.
Even though Tecno has a dedicated line in the Camon series, it hasn’t stopped them from going all out on the Phantom 6. The Phantom 6 reportedly sports an amazing 21-megapixel dual rear camera. Holy. Smokes.
The Phantom 6 will be the first Tecno devices to not use the USB micro B. Instead they use the smaller, faster and more powerful USB type-C.
With the ever-worsening exchange rate, the price for the Phantom 6 is expected to start somewhere around N110,000. The Phantom 6 Plus is also priced around N140,000.
Techno Phantom 6 and 6 plus will features a 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB internal memory respectively which can be expanded up to 256GB with a micro SD card.
Both devices will rock Argumented reality, iris scanner and latest USB Type-C that supports reverse charging. Phantom 6 Plus supports fingerprint scanner, but Phantom 6 doesn’t. They are expected to be launched before the end of September 2016.
