TECNO Mobile’s anniversary was last month (September 2017) and the company is gearing for the release of not just one, but two celebratory devices. Though the two devices are somewhat in the same family, they are different in that they have their individual unique specs and name.
The first device has been confirmed to be the Tecno Phantom 8 and the second, Tecno Phantom 8 Plus – an improved version of the Phantom 8.
The look of the Tecno Phantom 8 have been leaked in a rather blurry image which we reported in this piece alongside some supposed speculations of the device. As reported HERE, the Tecno Phantom 8 will come with a 5.5 inch display, 4 GB of RAM, a 13 MP and 5 MP sensor combination on the rear among other specs.
But in the normal sense of it, a PRO or PLUS version of any device is expected to overshadow the lower version in one way or the other and the Tecno Phantom 8 Plus won’t defy that logic.
The Phantom 8 Plus will have a bigger 6.0 inch display, bigger size of RAM (6GB), larger built-in storage capacity (64 GB), a faster Helio X30 processor, and will run the latest of Google’s operating system, the Android Oreo OS. Also, the battery capacity on the Phantom 8 Plus (4,000 mAh) will be bigger than that on the Phantom 8 (3,500 mAh). Some information are even pointing towards the 4,300 mAh and 4,500 mAh direction.
The TECNO Phantom 8 Plus will have the same design and aesthetics as the Phantom 8 and the design and position of components will be just like the one in the schematics below.
Per optics, it has been confirmed that the Phantom 8 Plus will come with 20 megapixels sensor on the front but it isn’t clear yet if it will also sport the same 13 MP and 8 MP sensor combination on the rear.
As regards pricing and availability of the device, we already know that it will launch on the 22nd of October 2017 at the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai and till then, and only then, can the price be confirmed. But going by the available details of the TECNO Phantom 8 Plus, the specifications, rumours and the price range of previous devices like the Phantom 6 and 7, it is very likely that the Phantom 8 Plus will launch with a selling price within the range of N80,000 – N120,000.
