I once thought that Tecno were done with the Tecno Phantom series but after seeing this device and its crazy specs, this tells you that Tecno actually means business. They have launched the Tecno Phantom 8 device. The Tecno Phantom 8 spots a 5.7-inches screen display with 2.5D curved glass, 4G LTE enabled, fingerprint sensor which is rear-mounted.
The Tecno Phantom 8 has a rear dual camera that the company claims it provides “professional level photos for everyone”. The dual camera has a 12MP and 13MP Sony IMX386 lens combination that allows for real-time refocusing.
The only downside of this phone is it’s battery capacity which is so damn low for a phone of this type of specs.
Let’s checkout the complete specifications and price of Phantom 8 device.
