TECNO Mobile is done already planning for the global launch of the Tecno’s 2017 flagship device. The Tecno Phantom 8 and Tecno Phantom 8 Plus will be launched on the 22nd day of October 2017 in Dubai. Remember, Tecno Phantom 6 saw Tecno launch globally to in Dubai and which introduced a unique design and went on sale not just in Africa. But will we be seeing Tecno Phantom 7 this year? No. As far I know Tecno Mobile wants to change this. They will launch it though at a later date.
There are several smartphone series in the company whose other models have never made it to the market. Someone might as well ascertain this to the delayed launch of the Tecno Camon C7. The C7 was launched after the C8 and C9 had already been launched.
Tecno Phantom 8 will feature unique 18:9 display screen that will feature full HD screen. The flagship series has always had screen protection. If we will see a super AMOLED display or feature Corning Gorilla Glass.
Tecno Phantom 8 and Tecno Phantom 8 Plus will also run on Android 7.1 Nougat. These devices might get the Android 8.0 Oreo, even though the company hardly releases any updates over the air. I feel it is time TECNO Mobile did so.
The processor will be unique and the device now differs in design from the Phantom 6 as it borrows some of its design from the iPhone 7 Plus. Meanwhile the Tecno Phantom 7 and Tecno Phantom 7 Plus would have launched with these specifications but well it will be inferior to the Tecno Phantom 8 since the Phantom 8 will be launched earlier.
The devices will have rear mounted fingerprint scanner. The devices also seem not to have on screen buttons for latest apps, app drawer and the back button.
The battery will also be unique and a nice bet will be on a 3500mAh lithium polymer battery that is non-removable.
