Here’s what’s new on the Tecno Phantom 6 :
1. Two Variants :
This year , TECNO Mobile launched two variants of this device ; The Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus. Both smartphones differ in their screen size and internal specifications.
Phantom 6 Plus is the bigger smartphone, with a 6.0 inch FHD LTPS Capacitive touch screen 4GB RAM , 64GB Storage and 4050mAh battery.
On the other hand , the Phantom 6 is smaller than the 6 Plus , and has a 5.5 inch AMOLED screen , 3GB RAM , 32GB internal storage and 2700mAh battery.
2. A 5 Layer Metal Design :
One of the unique selling point of the new Tecno Phantom 6 is its incredible design and slim body ; totally different from what we saw on the Phantom 5 .
Tecno Phantom 6 has a 5 layer Full metal body to provide more durability. The back is slightly curved to enable a more firm grip.
Each layer adds a unique element to the overall appearance of the device. From bottom up, the body is made up of a Nano molding seamless metal unibody, a firm fastener, a non-detachable battery design , and an aluminum magnesium alloy frame. The corning gorilla glass v3.0 helps protect the screen from scratch and cracks from heavy falls.
3. High-End Camera :
If you love pictures , the Phantom 6 will definately interest you because it comes with world class camera sensors manufactured by SONY.
The camera setup on the Phantom 6 is a little bit sophisticated and different from what we’re used to.
Tecno Phantom 6 comes with 18MP back camera , however , the camera was split into two different sensors ; one with 13MP and the other with 5MP resolution , making a total of 18MP.
The 13MP camera detects the view , while the 5MP camera provides more depth and clarity to the picture.
For taking selfies & videos , the Phantom 6 relies on an 8MP front camera with LED flash.
4. Improved Hardware & Faster Processor :
In terms of hardware, Phantom 6 uses a 2.0 Ghz MediaTek chipset for information processing , 3GB RAM for multitasking , and 32GB ROM for media storage. If you want more space , there’s an external SD card slot of up to 128GB.

5. Better Security :
Smartphone security is really important because our personal information will be at risk if hacked. The Phantom 6 provides a biometric iris scanner which scans you eyes before unlocking the device. And if you want more security , you can get the Phantom 6 Plus which comes with both the iris scanner and a fingerprint reader at the back.
6. Android 6.0 Marshmallow :
Both devices run on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system , along side TECNO’s custom User Interface called HiOs.
HiOs provides better customization , and a collection of themes and wallpapers to choose from.
7. USB TYPE-C :
The Tecno Phantom 6 (and 6 Plus) supports USB TYPE-C port which allows for reversible plug orientation, fast charging and data transfer from Phantom 6 to other devices. This is the first time a technology like this is used on a TECNO device.
8. Battery Life :
In terms of battery , the Phantom 6 has a lesser battery capacity than we expected. It comes with a 2700mAh battery with rapid charge. The battery should take you through at least 7 hours of heavy usage
