Full details of Tecno Phantom V Fold; camera, CPU, pricing and availability

Tecno recently announced its first foldable smartphone, the Tecno Phantom V Fold, at the MWC in Barcelona. The phone features two screens, an external standard smartphone screen with a size of 6.42 inches and an internal foldable tablet-sized screen with a size of 7.85 inches.


According to reports, the external screen is elongated, while the internal screen is almost square. The screens are both AMOLED and have a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, making it ideal for gaming and high-definition video streaming. Additionally, the inner screen supports HDR10+.

One of the interesting features of the Tecno Phantom V Fold is that it is TCL’s first flexible screen smartphone. These mean we should expect more foldable smartphones from the likes of both TCL and Alcatel which should in turn, lead to a decrease in the costs of foldable devices.

Under the hood, the Tecno Phantom V Fold is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, a powerful 5G 4nm MediaTek processor, that is built on ARM Cortex-X2 architecture, along with Mali-G710 MC10 GPU. The test copy we’ve seen so far is pulling a little less than 900 thousand in Antutu benchmark, which is slightly lower than the SoC capabilities.

In comparison, the popular Samsung Galaxy Fold4 has a 4500mAh battery with a 25W fast charging. Although the fold has 15W and 4.5W wireless and reverse charging respectively.
