The PHANTOM is back,” says TECNO on launching the latest addition to the PHANTOM smartphone series. Dubbed TECNO PHANTOM 9, the new phone redefines the way you view masterpieces in photography.  

The Tecno Phantom-series is the line of flagship mobile devices from the maker. A family of smartphones whose chapter was opened in Tecno’s phone production history with the release of Phantom A and A Plus and grew up to the Phantom 8, which was launched in 2017.

And owing to the spectacular rave those devices mustered when they hit the markets, the brand’s customers and fans were all waiting with bated breath for the next phone that will join the family. Unfortunately for “the watchers”, Tecno Phantom 9 couldn’t be launched in 2018.

The good news is that the Tecno Phantom series is back with the launch of the Phantom 9.

In today’s review, we will be discussing solid reasons that make the new Phantom 9 the most innovative mobile device from Tecno as of yet.

Tecno Phantom 9 Design and Display

The handset dazzles you with its glamorous artistic design, which is created with the aurora colour of Lapland on its back cover, giving the mobile a perfect level of aesthetics. 

Ogling at the Phantom 9’s innovative and unique body design. Its pure jade-like screen design and the flawlessly balanced ratio of the gold colour.

You would instantly fall in love with the resulting sophisticated artistic look this phone brings. Thanks to its cutting-edge technology and unmatched design.

The Phantom 9 is the numero uno choice of smartphones among Tecno’s flagship series.

It features around 84.83 per cent screen-to-body ratio and measures 158.46 x 75.3 x 7.85 mm in dimension. Even though it has a large 6.4″ display, the phone is still quite portable with its lightweight compact body.

This is achieved due to the U-shaped front-facing cam as well as the uniquely positioned front LED flash, both of which obviate the need for further space getting assigned to the front LEDs.

The new Tecno Phantom 9’s 6.4-inch Dot Notch display brings you a view worthy of a large theatre. It’s the first phone from the maker to sport a display that large. However, the big screen estate isn’t the best part; the manufacturer’s choice of the resolution is.

On a device sporting such a large screen, the higher the pixel resolution it provides, the better. The Chinese OEM understand this, which is why it opted for a Full-HD+ (1080 x 2340px) resolution, in lieu of the HD+ (720 x 1520 pixels) screen, featured in some recently released smartphones from the maker, such as the Camon 11, the Camon 11s and the Camon i4.

The Phantom 9’s AMOLED display ensures that the display is much brighter and much closer to natural colours.

Also, it displays more vividly looking images as a contrast between light and dark is suited perfectly. With the AMOLED screen filtering the blue light, you can rest assured that your eyes are always protected.

In the new release, Tecno takes mobile security to the next level by moving the fingerprint sensor from the back and hiding it under the phone screen. This revolutionary step forward ensures that you stay at the frontline of the newest fashion trends while also offering you advanced smartphone user experience.

Tecno Phantom 9’s in-display fingerprint scanner instantly unlocks the device when you turn it on and move your finger across the fingerprint area, which is displayed on the phone screen.

Tecno Phantom 9 Camera

The camera is the most innovative part of the Phantom. The phone packs 4 camera sensors in total, comprising 3 sensors at the rear and the last one upfront.

The rear camera setup contains a 16MP primary shooter with PDAF and quad-LED. It has 2MP depth sensor for Bokeh and other AI features, in addition to a large 8MP wide-angle lens.

Due to this advanced triple rear camera configuration (16 MP + 2 MP + 8 MP), the pictures you take with the Phantom 9 are much clearer, brighter, and more original. 

The primary camera produces a much smarter photograph due to the newly updated AI Scene Detection as well as AI HDR function. With this market-leading tech, the new device is the world’s first smartphone to feature a dual front flash on a DOT notch display.

The 32 MP front-facing shooter, working in tandem with the newly enhanced AI Beauty mode, offers you a captivating selfie experience. Even in a low-light environment, you can snap your selfies, perfectly, without any cause to worry.

The Phantom 9’s camera brings you a whole new unique experience. Distinct from the normal angle lens you may be used to, pictures taken with this smartphone’s 120° wide-angle lens capture more content, exactly like what you would see with your own eyes.

This capability lets you save more as you express even more. The phone takes pictures very closely, even as close as 2.5 centimetres, with no details left out.

The camera also offers ultimate beautification experience as various beautiful stickers are installed on it. It also provides 75 facial features and comes with support for 120° recognition.
