The Tecno brand isn’t very popular outside of the West African subcontinent but the fact remains that this Chinese brand is great at targeting its market which is essential for the entry-level to mid-range smartphone market.
While they dominate this realm in West Africa and the Southern part of Asia, the company’s ambition to also dabble into other notoriously competitive markets such as Europe and the US high-end smartphone market can be seen through their new smartphone releases, especially their foldables.
It’s no news that Samsung isn’t the only brand making foldable smartphones even though the Korean tech giant remains at the forefront of the market, other Chinese contenders are vying for this share as well, especially in their niche market.
Take Xiaomi as an example, the majority of its foldable smartphones were marketed and sold locally. The same as OPPO, Huawei, and the like.
Considering the dominance of Tecno in West Africa and Southern Asia, do you think they stand the chance of ousting Samsung in the Foldable smartphone sub-category? Well, they might.
Notably, the company has unveiled the Phantom V Fold, an affordable and innovative foldable handset that has captured the spotlight.
What sets the Tecno Phantom V Fold apart, apart from its top-tier features, is its remarkably lower price point – nearly £700 less than Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 5. This budget-friendly offering has piqued the interest of tech enthusiasts and consumers alike.
And now, Tecno has set its sights on a new endeavor: rivaling the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 with its version of a flip phone, rumored to be in the works.
Leaked images of the upcoming Tecno Phantom V Flip reveal an impressive list of specifications that promise an exciting user experience. However, that’s not all – Tecno plans to raise the bar further by introducing a unique twist to the front screen design.

These intriguing images, shared by Newzonly, provide insight into the design of the device. The circular display is reported to have a diameter of 1.32 inches and a pixel resolution of 466 x 466. While this may be smaller compared to the Z Flip and Motorola Razr 40 Ultra, it suggests potential applications reminiscent of smartwatches.
Beyond its distinctive design, the Tecno Phantom V Flip boasts additional noteworthy specifications such as a dual battery configuration, consisting of a 1,165mAh cell and another with a larger 2,735mAh capacity. This configuration hints at an extended battery life compared to its flip phone counterparts.
The interior of the device presents users with a sizable 6.9-inch AMOLED screen boasting a 1080 x 2640 resolution. Driving its performance is the MediaTek Dimensity 8050 chipset, accompanied by 8GB of RAM, ensuring smooth multitasking and efficient operation. For storage needs, the phone offers a generous 256GB of space.
Photography enthusiasts will appreciate the dual rear camera setup, comprising impressive 64-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors. On the front, a 32-megapixel camera is poised to deliver high-quality selfies. Charging convenience is provided through a USB-C port, catering to the modern user’s connectivity preferences.
According to reports from Newzonly, the Tecno Phantom V Flip is slated for a global release in October of this year. This eagerly anticipated launch is poised to make waves in the smartphone market, presenting consumers with a compelling alternative to established brands like Samsung.
This bold move can change the perception of the Tecno brand in the African market where the brand is often seen as a low-budget-only smartphone that may not necessarily showcase economic status as premium brands such as Apple and Samsung-made devices are often seen as high-end expensive brands to be messed with.
