After the launch of the Camon C9 and C7 Photo dudes, its no longer news that Tecno has just added two ultra powerful devices tagged ‘Beauty and The Beast’.  Forget about the name, the former is just hot while the later is something you should find out here.
The Tecno Phantom 6 has brings the best of all specs. The Display, speed, power, storage, software and security is taken seriously this time. You can see more of the Tecno Phantom 6 specs below.


The Tecno Phantom series are the most advanced and powerful smartphones from Tecno Mobility. Starting from its very first device; Phantom A, the Phantoms are naturally high end flagship devices. The Phantom 6 (Beauty) is the lil sister to the bigger Phantom 6 Plus (Beast).
 The display would not wow you much since its the popular 5.5″ inches we do see everywhere. But, there’s something different about this 5.5″ from Tecno. The Phantom 6 uses the most preferred screen type; Amoled Screen. If you have used one of those real good Samsung Galaxy devices like S3, S4, S5 and even the Note 7, you will know how saturated colors on a 5.5″ screen will look like. Well, the truth is, no matter the ppi density on an Amoled screen, you will certainly love every color on the screen.
Mind you, the display would’nt scratch easily because it uses a Gorilla glass.


Most flagship devices do come with some unfriendly memory specs like non expandable storage. For me, I don’t like devices without external SD card space. Well, Tecno is always doing their very best and they did it again.
The Phantom 6 (Beauty) has a 32GB ROM which can be expanded to about 128GB via a Micro SD card. With these combination, storing large files including photos, videos, apps, documents etc wont run your memory space out unless you want to download all the HD Seasonal movies from 02TVSeries.


When it comes to power and smartphones, its so important that a little issue with the sector, every other thing wont be enjoyed to the fullest. I remember when my Infinix Hot 2 battery became something else without my knowledge. From what is basically known, the Phantom 6 is powered by a non-removable 2,700 mAh battery.
Like seriously, I think this battery capacity is kinda low / too small to power a beauty like the Phantom 6. Although the Phantom 6 uses one of Mediatek’s latest chips which reduces power consumption and heating in its unique way, but anything less than 3000 mAh for a modern smartphone like the Phantom 6 would or may not serve you well if you use it the way its hyped. Well we would get more on that soon.

OS (Android Version)

The Phantom 6 was launched out of the box with the latest Android 6 Marshmallow. Marshmallow has a lot to offer and coupled with Tecno’s HIOS, expect nothing but the best user experience. Since this device runs on Tecno’s own customized Android OS, you should expect OS upgrades later.


The Phantom supports 4G networks, good camera, it’s real slim, advanced security via Iris biometric scanner, USB type C and more just below.
