TECNO has launched its newest flagship smartphone, the TECNO Phantom X in an event hosted in Nairobi, Kenya.

The new Phantom X smartphone features design of 3D Borderless Screen and the industry’s first silk glass back cover. The combination of the 50 MP Ultra-Night camera and the 48 MP Selfie camera with the AI-assisted Super Night Mode and 50 mm Golden Portrait, provides a big leap in camera performance. The phone is powered by a 4700mAh, 256G+8G large memory and a newly-updated HiOS 7.6 system.

Phantom X is available in two artistic colours of Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Monet’s Summer Garden now available in the market. The smartphone’s Mediatek Helio G95 (12 nm) processor ensures high operating speeds.

Customers can get the new Phantom X smartphone through the TECNO Phantom website and shop at local TECNO stores across Africa and other countries.
