Tecno Launches Phantom X, First Premium Smartphone With 50MP Cameras

After so many rumors of the forthcoming flagship device from Tecno, it has finally unveiled Phantom X its first premium device with a 50MP main camera.

It came earlier than expected… just a few days ago, we saw the live images of the device and now it has been unveiled. Tecno is focused on entry-level and mid-range devices for emerging markets, but the company wants to grow into the more upscale segments. To that end, it is relaunching Phantom as a separate sub-brand that will create premium devices.

Tecno Phantom X features a 6.7″ FHD+ 90hz OLED Display (Curved edges), 8GB RAM + 256GB onboard storage. It will also come with an Helio G95 gaming chipset. Also, a vapor chamber cooling system is attached to the chipset, which promises to keep it 3-5º cooler. For the OS, it will come with Android 11 out of the box based on HiOS v7.6.0.

Tecno Phantom X Cameras

The Phantom X has fairly impressive camera hardware both on the front and the back.

It features a triple rear camera starting with a 50MP main module with a large 1/1.3” sensor with 1.2µm native pixels that grow to 2.4µm with binning. This sensor has Dual Pixel and Laser autofocus and sits behind an f/1.85 lens.

Next up is a 13MP telephoto with a 50mm lens, which is billed as a portrait camera. Besides being good for portrait shots, this focal length is also a 2x magnification over the main lens, so this a telephoto camera as well – okay, 2x isn’t much, but it’s the first tele lens on a Tecno phone.

The third module has a 120º ultrawide-angle lens and an 8MP sensor. These cameras are backed by a quad-LED flash.

The Phantom X has a 48MP selfie camera on the front, which is joined by an 8MP ultrawide module with a 105º lens. These two are helped by a dual-LED flash. On paper, the X has one of the more impressive camera setups to launch this year.

It is housed by a 4,700 mAh battery capacity and supports 33W fast charging. A 30-minute charge is enough to resuscitate a flat battery and bring it up to 70%.
