The Tecno Phantom 9 will soon be launched on the Ghanaian market and we have already brought the key features of the smartphone. Here, in this piece, are the full specs of the Tecno Phantom 9, successor to the Phantom 8.

Before we move on, know that the phone has a dew-drop selfie camera, 3 rear cameras, and it is a dual SIM standby smartphone. It runs Android Pie and has a 6.4-inch screen.

Design

The Phantom 9 made to perfectly fit in your palms as the dimensions are 158.46 x 75.3 x 7.85 mm. It weighs around 180g. It carries a triple rear camera setup which is lined vertically on its back, with a Quad Flash at the bottom of the vertically lined cameras.

The face of the phone is all screen except for the tiny portion which is dedicated to the dew-drop selfie camera. It has all its buttons (power and volume) on the right side. The Tecno Phantom 9 stands about 6.4 inches tall, nearly 3 inches wide and it is 0.3 inches thick.

The smartphone has a brightly colourful premium Lapland Aurora appearance.

Operating Software

It’s a major Tecno device so you’d definitely expect it to run on Android. It has the current stable version — the Android 9 Pie. Aside from the Android OS, the Phantom 9 runs the 5.0 version of the company’s own HiOS UI.

Display

The 6.4-screen has a dew-drop notch which is housing the front camera. Having a ratio of 19:9, the display is an FHD+ AMOLED Capacitive touchscreen. It also has support for multi-touch. The resolution for the Phantom 9’s display is pegged at 2340 x 1080 pixels to give users a fine viewing experience.

The elegantly made display doesn’t only have the dew-drop selfie snapper, it also accommodates the fingerprint sensor — an on-screen fingerprint sensor as that.

Processor Memory and Storage

On the inside of the phone, we get it powered by a MediaTek MT6765 Helio P35 chipset. To give you a smooth Tecno experience, the Phantom 9 is given a 2.35 GHz Octa Cortex A53 processor frequency. This is sure to minimise or vanquish the lagging of large apps like games.

There is a whopping 128GB of internal storage and a 6GB RAM capacity. Excitingly, you can also upgrade your internal space courtesy of a microSD card. The storage can be expanded up to 256GB.

You also get a PowerVR GE8320 GPU inside the phone.

Camera

The Tecno Phantom has a triple rear camera setup. The primary lens of the three lenses at the back is 16MP, the secondary lens is 8MP. And the last one comes with 2MP.

The 8MP lens is for depth sensing while the 2MP lens is the ultra-wide lens. The rear camera setup comes with a couple of features including HDR, Geo-tagging, face detection, panorama, etc.

To able to take good photos even in dark environments, Tecno places a Quad Flash at the bottom of vertically lined camera lenses.

On the front part is the dew-drop 32MP selfie snapper. It also has HDR, panorama, face detection, and geo-tagging features. Also, the selfie lens has AI abilities so you wouldn’t need to worry about your filters and all that.

Network

Aside from the latest 5G network, the Tecno Phantom 9 (2019) supports all the major network infrastructures: 2G, 3G, 4G and 4G LTE. The phone is also made to access a WiFi network.

Battery

This phone, like a couple of the lately released Tecno devices, comes with a 3,500 mAh battery. It is a lithium polymer (Li-Po) battery and it is non-removable. Though the battery capacity is enough to take you through the day, there is a trick to let it live longer. You can save some battery life if you minimise the use of the 4G LTE network.

Sensors

There is the fingerprint sensor which is beneath the display. You also get a digital compass in the Phantom 9. Accelerometer, Proximity sensor and light sensor are all available in this phone. Unfortunately, there’s no iris scanner, barometer or face unlock feature.

Other features

For FM radio listeners, you have it present.  Active noise cancellation is also present as well as Bluetooth connectivity. This phone does not come with a wireless charging feature. It is also neither water-resistant nor dust resistant.
