Tecno Mobile’s Phantom Series to Debut at Safaricom Shops


Tecno Mobile for the first time is trusting Safaricom Shops to also sell their Phantom series. Since the launch of the Phantom Z and the Phantom 5, Safaricom wasn’t the favorites. But now doors have opened for them and as from 7/10/2016, you will get the duo Phantom 6 phones at Safaricom shops (outlets).

Safaricom have been selling mobile phones and majorly they try customizing the phones to feature single SIM. Many phones that have been purchased at Safaricom Shops have been single SIM. I don’t think if they have room to twerk around the Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus to fit their single SIM monopoly. 

Safaricom is also known to hype product prices just because their products are thought to be more original which is not the case. SIM slots  and SIM type doesn’t determine the genuineness of the device. If they will sell the Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus at a higher price than other retailers, that can only be determined as from 7th Oct.
