Tecno Phantom A6 is the refresh of Tecno’s top of the line Phantom Series. It has a slimmer body with almost the same specs as the year 2015 Tecno Phantom model (Tecno Phantom 5). The significant differentiation of the Tecno Phantom A6 is that the software has been refreshed to Android 6.0 with a more powerful processor. You also get a dual-camera setup on the back, and the fingerprint sensor has been dropped for an iris scanner.
A quick review of the Tecno Phantom A6
It’s obvious that Tecno has decided to take it to a whole new level since there is high demand in quality plus great competition in the mobile market. We must commend the effort in the design and overall specifications of this new device.
Significant Improvements On Phantom A6
The Phantom A6 is equipped with a large 5.5 inch AMOLED screen, capable 3GB RAM, massive 32GB internal storage and a 2700mAh power juicer.
The Tecno Phantom A6 is slimmer, measuring just 6.15mm with a gorgeous metal design. So far we can confirm Gold and Grey colour model, but we expect other colours to also be available.
More so, the body of the Phantom A6 is made up of a Nano-molding seamless metal unibody, a firm fastener, a non-detachable battery design, and an aluminum-magnesium alloy frame with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that helps protect the screen from scratch and cracks, it’s also safe to say that each of the above-mentioned layers adds a unique element to the overall appearance of the device. From bottom to the top.
On paper, the Tecno Phantom A6 is offering the same display as the Phantom 5. You are still getting the same 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution.
When I said that Tecno took it to a whole new level, I really meant it.
