As the foldable smartphone market continues to grow and evolve, Tecno has announced its entry with the Phantom V Fold. This is the company’s first foldable device, and it promises to deliver a big display, excellent battery life, and impressive camera capabilities. Let’s take a closer look at what the Tecno Phantom V Fold has to offer.
Design and Display
The Tecno Phantom V Fold is a big phone that weighs in at 299g, making it one of the heaviest foldable phones on the market. When closed, the phone features a 6.42-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080x2550px and a refresh rate of 120Hz. This is the cover display and will be used for everyday tasks such as checking notifications, texting, and making calls.
However, when the phone is opened up, you’re greeted by a much larger 7.85-inch 2000x2296px folding screen, also with a 120Hz LTPO panel. This screen is larger than the one on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4.
