Tecno has once again added a new baby to their Phantom series called the Tecno Phantom X. The Tecno Phantom X is the direct successor to the Phantom 9 which was released in July 2019.
That sounds a little bit weird to the normal frequency new phones in a series are released right? Normally, new smartphones are released just a year after their predecessor. But you and I can agree that the COVID-19 pandemic did its worse last year and that might have caused an interruption in the normal release frequency.
None of that matters at the moment since the Tecno Phantom X has finally arrived after much anticipation from the Phantom 9 users and lovers of the Phantom series.
This year, although Phantom X’s design cues are not new to the system, it is undoubtedly one of the best designs we have seen so far in the Phantom series of smartphones. The curved edges are one of the main things that will draw your attention if you ever used the Phantom 9.
The camera arrangement has a triple layout with the main camera having a 50MP camera, and the remaining cameras having a 13MP telephoto camera and 8MP ultrawide camera. Enough of the plenty talk, let’s jump right into the details.

Gone were the days where we had to go through the hassle of inputting passwords or PIN codes whenever we wanted to open our phones. The fingerprint provided by Tecno on the Phantom X is very secured making sure only you have access to your device. You can also set it up in other apps as well to enhance your security.
6.7″ OLED Display
