Tecno, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, is all set to launch its very first flip smartphone, the Tecno Phantom V Flip. This exciting phone will make its debut on September 22 at the Flip in Style Tecno Flagship Product Launch 2023 event happening in Singapore.
Even before the official launch, some details about this flip phone have already slipped out. You can actually find its cover for sale on a Chinese shopping website called Alibaba.com. This cover gives us a sneak peek into the phone’s design. And here’s the unique part: unlike most flip phones, the Tecno Phantom V Flip seems to have a round display on the outside cover.
Tecno is pretty hush-hush about the specs right now, but they did confirm that the big reveal will happen alongside another exciting product, the Tecno Megabook T1 2023, a 14-inch laptop.
As for what we’ve seen from the leaked images and info, it looks like the Tecno Phantom V Flip will have a circular display on the outside cover. Around this secondary screen, you’ll spot two rear cameras and an LED Flash. If you flip it open, there’s a hole-punch display on the front with a sensor.
The phone also made an appearance on the Google Play Console website with the model number AD11. According to this listing, it might have 8GB of RAM and come with Android 13 right out of the box. Under the hood, it’s rumored to run on a MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chip, paired up with an ARM Mali G77 GPU.
When it comes to the screen, expect a full-HD+ display with a resolution of 1,080 by 2,640 pixels and a pixel density of 480ppi. Camera-wise, it could boast a 64-megapixel main camera on the back, along with a 13-megapixel secondary camera, and a 32-megapixel front camera for selfies. Keeping the lights on might be a 4,000mAh battery, and it could support fast charging at 45W.
Meanwhile, Samsung released its Galaxy Z Flip 5 in August this year.It has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display when unfolded, and a 3.4-inch AMOLED cover display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The rear camera system consists of a 12MP main sensor and a 12MP ultrawide sensor. The front-facing camera is a 10MP sensor. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a 3,900mAh battery and supports 25W fast charging.
