Tecno Phantom 6 Specs & Price

Tecno Phantom 6 is the 2016 refresh of Tecno’s top of the line Phantom Series. It is slightly slimmer with largely the same specs as last year’s model (Tecno Phantom 5). The major differentiation of the Tecno Phantom 6 is that the software has been refreshed to Android 6.0 with a more powerful processor. You also get a dual-camera setup on the back and the fingerprint sensor has been dropped for an iris scanner.

The Design

The Tecno Phantom 6 is launching with a totally new design compared to its predecessor. It is slimmer, measuring just 6.15mm with a gorgeous metal design. So far we can confirm a gold and a grey coloured model, but we expect other colours to also be available.

The Display and Camera

On paper, the Tecno Phantom 6 is offering the same display as the Phantom 5. You are still getting the same 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. Note however that though the specs seems similar, actual experience may be different, but we will actually have to use both to tell the difference.

Tecno Phantom 6 Front View

The Phantom 5 was celebrated for its camera, so it is no surprise that Tecno wants its successor to do better. To achieve this the company is betting on a 13 megapixels Sony IMX 258 sensor for the Tecno Phantom 6.

The Sony sensor is matched with a 5 megapixels sensor from Samsung to create a dual-camera setup. The dual camera and its dual-LED flash are located on the back of the Tecno Phantom 6. The front facing camera still remains at 8 megapixels with its LED flash and possibly the autofocus.
