One of the best smartphone makers in the African market, Tecno Mobile is known for its excellent 2016 flagship smartphones; Tecno Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus, and has been working effortlessly on it forthcoming 2017 flagship phones namely Tecno Phantom 7 and Phantom 7 Plus respectively. It is now indispensable that the brand is gradually making a push outside the Africa market by expanding its brand products to cut across international specifications.
Tecno Phantom Series of smartphones are known to be Tecno Mobile’s flagship devices for the past three years. It all started with the Tecno Phantom Z (1st Gen), Phantom Z mini (2nd Gen), Phantom 5 (3rd Gen), Phantom 6 and 6 Plus (4th Gen) and these next devices; Phantom 7 and Phantom 7 Plus will be the 5th generation smartphones from the company.
With the information reaching our desk, the two upcoming flagship phones; Tecno Phantom 7 and Phantom 7 Plus are expected to be announced later this year. We have however carefully analysed all you need to know about these two flagship devices including planned features, possible prices and their launch date based on our speculations and rumours around. Although, details about the upcoming Phantom devices are limited.
Tecno Phantom 7 Expected Features
The Tecno Phantom 7 is supposed to sport an Helio X25 processor along with a 4 GB worth of RAM and a 4,000 mAh battery pack. The device will have a 5.95-inch AMOLED Display and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.
The Tecno Phantom 6 will come with that premium look with curves on the edges, metal frame, and will be available in all colours as seen with the Phantom 6. The device is confirmed to be lighter and slimmer than the Phantom 6.
To enhance the picture quality, Tecno might use a 16-megapixel dual camera which will help you take a bright and definite picture through its anticipated primary and secondary cameras.
As for the memory, just as we said earlier, the Tecno Phantom 7 will offer a 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be expandable up to 256GB. We are not sure yet if the Tecno Phantom 7 will come with that amazing fingerprint sensor.
Tecno Phantom 7 Price & Release Date
Before talking about the price of the Tecno Phantom 7, we need to take a look back at the launch price of the previously released Tecno Phantom 6, which was priced at about N80,000 and N90,000 respectively. So we can just conclude that this upcoming flagship will be priced at about N100,000 to N130,000 since we expect a great design with added features.
Tecno Mobile’s flagship phones of 2016 both came around September 2015, which were just a few months after the release of the Phantom 5. Just like other smartphone brands, 12 Months seems to be the standard time interval to releasing a flagship phone. With these, we expect the appearance of Tecno Phantom 7 to be around mid-August. Since the firm is targeting a Global market, they may decide to meet up with the forthcoming 2017 CES which will start in 1st-6th September.
Tecno Phantom 7 Plus Expected Features
If we talk about the screen size, it is without a doubt that the Phantom 7 Plus is going to feature a little bigger screen than the ordinary Phantom 7 that we are expecting to measure a display size of 5.95-inch. Therefore, the new Phantom 7 Plus will probably feature a 6.0-inch display size with a Dual curved screen.
As far as the camera is a concern, the Tecno Phantom 7 Plus will sport improved 21-megapixel primary camera with 16-megapixel secondary one.
Tecno Phantom 7 Plus will be equipped with an incredible design and ultra-slim full metal body which should prove to be more durable with a slight curve around the back to enable even more grip.
As for the memory, the Phantom 7 Plus should also offer same 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM that can be expandable up to 256GB. This variant will come with USB Type-C ports, fingerprint sensor, a large 4500mAh battery.
Tecno Phantom 7 Plus Price & Release Date
With a generous amount of salt – the Phantom 7 Plus could hit the shelves sometime after the launch of Phantom 7, which we have predicted to be September 2017.
Since the Phantom 7 will be priced between N100,000 to N130,000, we then can conclude that the Plus variant will be priced above it and at about N130,000 to N170,000 since we expect a great design with added features.
However, if you are contemplating on getting a new device soon but cannot wait for the next Tecno flagship phones to be released, other excellent phones will be released into the market soon. Speculations have shown that Tecno best rival, Infinix is expected to announce the Infinix Hot 5 and Infinix Zero 5 later this Year.
