Tecno has unveiled its latest innovation, the Phantom V Fold - a phone that promises to unlock a new world of possibilities with its foldable design. At first glance, the Phantom V Fold is a marvel to behold. Its body measures 159.4x140.4x6.9mm when unfolded, and 159.4x72x14.2-14.5mm when folded. With a weight of 299g, the phone is relatively light, making it easy to carry around.
The Phantom V Fold's body is a combination of Gorilla Glass Victus, plastic, and aluminum. However, it's the Schott UTG foldable display that takes the cake. The 7.85-inch Foldable LTPO AMOLED display boasts 1 billion colors, a 120Hz refresh rate, and 1100 nits (peak) brightness. With a resolution of 2000x2296 pixels and a 10.3:9 aspect ratio, you get a stunning 388 pixels per inch. The cover display is no slouch either, with a 6.42-inch LTPO AMOLED display, 1B colors, 120Hz refresh rate, and 1100 nits (peak) brightness. The cover display has a resolution of 1080 x 2550 pixels and a pixel density of 431 PPI.
Under the hood, the Phantom V Fold is powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 9000+ (4 nm) chipset. The octa-core CPU comprises one Cortex-X2 core clocked at 3.20 GHz, three Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.85 GHz, and four Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 1.80 GHz. The GPU is a Mali-G710 MC10. The phone comes with either 256GB or 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage and 12GB of RAM.
The Phantom V Fold runs on Android 13 with Tecno's HiOS 13 Fold on top. It's also equipped with a triple camera setup on the back, consisting of a 50 MP wide (main) lens with f/1.9 aperture, a 50 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle lens with 120˚ field-of-view. The selfie camera is a 32 MP f/2.5 lens on the cover display, and there's an internal 16 MP f/2.5 camera as well. The rear camera can shoot 4K videos at 30fps, while the front camera can shoot 1080p videos at 60fps.
The phone is powered by a 5000mAh battery that supports 45W wired charging. According to Tecno, you can get 40% charge in just 15 minutes and 100% charge in 55 minutes. The Phantom V Fold also has a side-mounted fingerprint reader, NFC, FM radio, and stereo speakers.
Tecno has gone the extra mile with the packaging of the Phantom V Fold. The phone comes in a fancy box, which is as big as two regular phone boxes. The two strokes of a V meeting in the middle make for an eye-catching design, and the 'Beyond the extraordinary' cover only adds to the excitement. Inside the box, you'll find a snap-on back cover with kickstand functionality, the charger, and USB cable.
In conclusion, the Tecno Phantom V Fold is a remarkable phone that delivers on its promise of unlocking a new world of possibilities. With its foldable design, stunning displays, powerful hardware, and impressive cameras, it's a phone that's sure to turn heads.
