Tecno Phantom 8 Smartphone Specifications, Features and Price

Tecno Phantom 8 is the latest flagship smartphone from Tecno that looks to take things up from where the impressive Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus left off. The device packs dual cameras, speedy octa-core processor and abundant RAM. But more interestingly is the impressive built quality, making the smartphone to stand out completely from all Tecno’s smartphones till date

Design and Display

The Tecno Phantom 8 doesn’t look too bad for something to rub shoulders with heavyweights such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 8. It sports a metallic chassis with an alluring 3D ‘Diamond Fire Design’ for a premium touch. The edges are curvy and the overall profile is rather svelte at 7.9 mm.

Tecno Phantom 8 sports a 5.7-inch IPS display with Full HD resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. You may expect slightly sharper images than what the predecessor offered. There is robust Corning Gorilla Glass to protect against scratches.

The Cameras

This again joins the bandwagon of flagships rocking dual rear cameras. Tecno Phantom 8 combines a 12MP sensor with a 13MP sensor for greater image depth and quality. You get Tri-LED flash, autofocus and 10X zoom among the shot features.

Bright selfies are on the card with this one. There is an amazing 20MP camera with dual-LED flash on the front. Selfie lovers are sure going to love this!

Hardware and Software

Apps and games will run with practically no glitches on the Tecno Phantom 8. This is because it boasts an octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor that gets support from generous 6GB RAM. The system memory is the company’s best ever.

For storage, you get 64GB space on the inside. This is expandable by a massive 2 TB using a microSD card. The Tecno Phantom 8 ships with Android 7.0 Nougat sporting HiOS 3.0 skin – this is a tad disappointing. But there’s promise of upgrade.

Other Features

Another thing that may disappoint some buyers a bit is that the Tecno Phantom 8 comes with a 3,500mAh battery. However, this supports fast charging to reduce the amount of time it stays in the socket.

Tecno Phantom 8 features a fingerprint scanner and supports fast LTE connectivity. It has a USB Type-C port, dual SIM slots, USB On-The-Go (OTG), and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct.
