Tecno Phantom 9 is the latest smartphone addition by Tecno Mobility to the Phantom series. Phantom 9 was launched in June 2019, and is a direct successor of Phantom 8. This device comes with an in-screen fingerprint scanner, triple rear camera setup, and a large 6.4-inch Full-HD+ display.
Tecno Phantom 9 Specifications
This device specifications includes a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. The device has a U-shaped notch cut-out, making the display a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and giving the phantom 9 a whooping 83.4% screen-to-body ratio.
Tecno Phantom 9 Display
With a big thumb up to Samsung AMOLED screen, the display on the Phantom 9 is sharp and crisp. Despite being 6.4-inch, Tecno Phantom 9 is still much compact. This makes it a bit smaller than the previous Phantom 8 with 5.7-inch display. The display also has a built-in on-screen fingerprint sensor, which push your mobile security right in front of your face. This is a first from Tecno Mobility.
Under the hood, the Tecno Phantom 9 runs on an Octa-core MediaTek MT6765 Helio P35 SoC clocked at 2.35 GHz. This is a power efficient CPU built on a 12nm architecture, and optimized for Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology. It is integrated with PowerVR GE8322 GPU, assisted with 6GB of RAM. This device sports an internal storage of 128GB.
Tecno Phantom 9 Camera
On the camera aspect, Tecno made use of three (3) camera sensors at the back, just like on the Camon 11s or the Camon i4. Of the three sensors, there’s the 16-megapixel main sensor with quad-LED and PDAF, a 2-megapixel depth of field lens, and a large 8-megapixel wide angle lense. A single 32-megapixel selfie camera with a uniquely placed dual-LED flashs just on the bezels above the display makes up the front camera.
4G LTE Support
Tecno Phantom 9 has support for dual 4G enabled SIM, fuelled by a 3500mAh battery and runs on Android 9.0 (Pie) based on the latest HiOS v5.0.
The fingerprint scanner is not the only thing TECNO is teasing with this flagship phone. There are also claim that the camera will be the “new standard in premium mobile photography”.
I also expect that this will be the fastest TECNO phone that you can buy with better AI capability than the other phones on their lineup.
