Tecno Phantom X is now official, and just as the title suggests, the device has the best camera in any Tecno phone yet. So even though the phone is a total upgrade over the Phantom 9 of 2019, the camera prowess is like nothing on any Tecno phone currently. This includes a 50-megapixel f/1.85 aperture, with 1/1.3 sensor size, 2.4µm pixels, dual Pixel PDAF along with a dedicated Laser AF as well as four LED flashes.

In addition to the above, for the first time, Tecno Mobile is introducing a dedicated 13-megapixel Telephoto lens, capable of up to 2x optical zoom, along with a third 8-megapixel ultrawide angle lens with up to 120-degree FoV. Turning to the front, you get a dual 48-megapixel main lens and a secondary 8-megapixe wide lens as the selfie setup, and these are hidden in a pill-notch cutout within the display.

Under the hood, the Phantom X rocks MediaTek’s Helio G95 gaming CPU. This SoC has 2×2.05 GHz Cortex-A76 & 6×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 CPUs, along with Mali-G76 MC4 GPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.

Just a reminder that the Phantom series is Tecno’s flagship phone, so the company seems to be maxing out all her techs on this one. Moving from the internal specs to the outward built, you are getting Corning Gorilla Class 5 protection on the rear and front of the phone, covering the display.
