TECNO Launches Smartphone Worth 100K

TECNO Phantom X2

TECNO is getting serious about venturing into the flagship market with flagship-grade devices. The tech company announced today the new Phantom X2 series to succeed the Phantom X from last year.

The new flagship series includes the regular Phantom X2 and the Phantom X2 Pro – they’re both 5G-powered devices.

The Phantom X2 series comes packing Dimesnity 9000 5G(4nm) chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 12GB for the regular and Pro version respectively. There’s a MemFusion feature that adds up to 5GB of virtual RAM. Mali G710 MC10 GPU is present for both.

The Phantom X2 series has a slightly curved 6.8″ Super AMOLED display(1080 x 2400 pixels) rocking a 120Hz refresh rate in a 20:9 aspect ratio. Gorilla Glass Victus is present for protection. The display features P3 wide colour gamut.

TECNO ditched the dual left selfie cutout for its front cameras for the centre punch-hole cutout. The Phantom X2 has a 32MP selfie camera.

For the main cameras, we have a triple setup located in the centre that includes a 64MP main. The Pro version has a retractable 50MP portrait lens(65mm f/1.5 aperture) with a ring around it. It also functions as a telephoto lens with 2.5x zoom.

The pro opts for a 50MP main with an additional 13MP ultra-wide lens that also functions as a macro lens.

Like the Camon 19 Pro, the Phantom X2 sports an RGBW lens to capture up to 60% more light plus a glass lens to increase light going into it by 30%.

The vanilla X2 has a 2MP depth sensor.

Both have OIS support.
