TECNO is set to shake up the market once again with the imminent launch of the Tecno Phantom V Flip, its first-ever flip smartphone. Scheduled for unveiling on September 22, 2023, during the “Flip in Style Tecno Flagship Product Launch 2023” event in Singapore, this device is creating a buzz for its unique design and affordability.
The event is slated to kick off at 3 PM local time in Singapore, promising to be a significant moment for TECNO and its fans worldwide. The Phantom V Flip represents TECNO’s dedication to innovation, exploring new form factors, and redefining the style and functionality of flip phones for fashion-forward and tech-savvy audiences.
This exciting launch comes on the heels of TECNO’s horizontal folding Phantom V Fold, which made its debut at the MWC 2023 in late February. Now, TECNO is ready to dazzle consumers with its first clamshell foldable, the Tecno Phantom V Flip.
While the company has been tight-lipped about the details of the Phantom V Flip, leaked images have provided some insights. The most eye-catching feature of the Phantom V Flip is its circular cover display, adorned with two cameras. A listing on the Chinese e-commerce website Alibaba.com has given a sneak peek at the phone’s design, confirming its unique appearance.
According to leaks, the Tecno Phantom V Flip is expected to boast a 6.9″ FullHD+ folding display, 8GB of RAM, and will run on Android 13. Under the hood, it is likely to be powered by the Dimensity 1300 chipset. These specifications promise a powerful and responsive user experience.
Furthermore, the phone’s circular cover display with dual cameras and an LED Flash suggests a focus on photography and versatility. On the front, a hole-punch display with an additional sensor adds to the phone’s appeal. The Google Play Console listing indicates that the Tecno Phantom V Flip is set to offer a premium experience with ample RAM and the latest Android OS.
The main display of the Phantom V Flip is expected to offer a Full-HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2640 pixels and an impressive pixel density of 480ppi. Camera enthusiasts can look forward to a 64-megapixel primary rear sensor, a 13-megapixel secondary sensor, and a high-resolution 32-megapixel front camera. To keep users powered throughout the day, a 4,000mAh battery with support for 45W fast charging is rumored.
In a market where foldable smartphones often come with hefty price tags, TECNO aims to disrupt the status quo. The Phantom V Fold, launched earlier this year, made waves for its affordability, pricing in at around $1,100 US dollars. This competitive pricing places it in direct competition with traditional slab flagship phones, and it even undercuts more expensive foldable options like the Google Pixel Fold, and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. With its upcoming flip phone, TECNO appears poised to continue its tradition of offering budget-friendly yet innovative smartphones to consumers, and bringing direct competition to OPPO’s N2 Flip and Samsung’s Flip 5.
As the countdown to September 22nd begins, tech enthusiasts and smartphone aficionados alike eagerly anticipate the launch of the Tecno Phantom V Flip, a potential game-changer in the world of flip smartphones. Stay tuned for more details and coverage of this exciting event.
