Tecno Phantom 8 Specifications And Price

For all the Tecno fans, the wait is over for the next Phantom. Tecno Phantom 8 is Tecno’s Flagship device for this year. The Tecno Phantom 8 was launched in Dubai on the 22nd October 2017 and I will let you know its specs and price.

TECNO Mobile is now putting a lot of efforts in making sure their recent smartphones have what it takes to be compared to the likes of Samsung, HTC, Xiaomi, LG, Apple etc. One of the most interesting aspect of the Tecno Phantom 8 is its dual camera setup and what it has to offer.

Instead of a single rear camera, Phantom 8 has two: a 12MP Sony wide-angle sensor and a 13MP telephoto sensor. With the former recording depth of field and the latter imaging based on the data, two powerful shooters on Phantom 8 work together to add new elements to your photo album.

The Phantom 8 uses a powerful octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor running at a maximum clock speed of 2.6GHz. It consists of 4-high power A53 cores with 2.6GHz capabilities and another 4 low-energy consuming A53 cores running at 1.6GHz


Tecno Phantom 8 Specifications And Price


Having a smartphone is one thing, having a smartphone with a very The Phantom 8 packs 3500 good battery to power it is another thing. The Tecno Phantom 8 packs a 3,500 mAh battery with fast charging support.Although the battery is small, but since it’s Tecno’s flagship device, the battery might perform above expectations.

The Tecno Phantom 8 uses an IPS Capacitive touch screen with a display resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. In this era where smartphones are packing massive resolutions, I was expecting a Super AMOLED screen and a resolution that’s higher than their usual.

Tecno decided to bake the Phantom 8 OS in Android 7.0 Nougat when Android 8.0 is already available. Looking at the updates on the Phantom 6 Plus, I think the Phantom 8 will be the first to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update.
