The new device will be added to the Tecno phantom series, which kicked off with Phantom 5 few years ago. This could be the perfect Christmas gift we’ve all been waiting phone, as the yet-to-be announced phone poses as a successor to last year’s Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus.
There is no official confirmation of the new device’s name at the moment, but it could be called “Tecno Phantom 8”, with the sister (upgraded) version coming as “Phantom 8 Plus”. Or even “Tecno Phantom 7”.
In terms of specifications, the flagship smartphone might feature a 6-inches display, 4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB ROM, fingerprint scanner, and Android 7.1 Nougat. According to image renders, it looks like the phone will feature dual rear camera setup of 21 megapixels.
The Tecno next Phantom will surely going to be another crown jewel Smartphone. In the sense that the Phantom series is the only Ffagship of Tecno Mobile. The recent device of the Flagship family Phantom 6 Plus has remained a Beast and it is hoped that the New Phantom 8 will be a super Beast.
Meanwhile, if you want to enjoy major goodies that follow a smartphone like privilege to upgrade to any latest Android OS earlier, always buy flagships. Users of Phantom 6 Plus are privileged to receive OTA Upgrade to Android 7.1.1 earlier because their device fall within the flagship family of Tecno Mobile and it is highly hoped that Phantom 6 Plus and the upcoming Phantom 8 will receive OTA Upgrade to Android O. The Next Phantom may even originally come with Android O.
