TECNO’s 2015 Phantom smartphone – their flagship – arrived MobilityArena.com this morning. The packaging is really beautiful, but the phone itself and the accessories are superb. Everyone who has seen and held it here have been wowed. I am not allowed to publish certain images or give out certain info, but here are a few things I can share.
- Like I mentioned earlier, it is a beautifully crafted smartphone and metal-clad too. It is even better in the flesh than I had thought.
- The display is flat out superb! I am talking about Nokia-grade, Apple-grade, quality. It is 480
- The phone also has a refined custom UI from TECNO. This is by far the most beautiful user interface from TECNO. Unfortunately, I am not permitted to share photos of this yet.
- There are surprise features on the phone that I am not allowed to mention, so… *seals lips*
My unit had a System Update available when I connected it, and I am running that already.
The official launch is this Wednesday and I have an invitation to the event on my desk. Expect my detailed hands-on as soon as the launch happens, followed by a review later. In the meantime, here are two teaser photos that I took. Sorry guys. I can’t share anything more than these.
This is really something, if you ask me. In the invitation, TECNO describes it as “the best smartphone of the year 2015”. That is a serious claim, and we shall have to see how that turns out. For now, we wait for the launch and the price. No?
