Tecno stepped up its game recently by introducing its first-ever Folding device, Phantom V Fold. Given the device’s claim to fame overnight, a similar clamshell Flip phone became almost inevitable. With the Tecno Phantom V Yoga, it appears the company is ready to take on the competition.
Tecno Phantom V Yoga is the brand’s first-ever vertical folding device, much like Samsung’s Z Flip series. No one knows when it will launch, though the intensity of rumble about its details on the internet suggests it is on its way.
Among the latest rumblings on the internet, the device’s specifications and camera layout have leaked online. IRL photos of “Phantom V Yoga” tantalize with the possibility of a round camera hump, cleverly doubling as a secondary display.
Meanwhile, rumors indicate that the Tecno Phantom new mobile has a primary FHD+ display and the hardware setup propelled by MediaTek’s Dimensity 8050, hinting at a strategic focus on the mid-tier market rather than the premium segment.
To set the record straight: MediaTek’s latest Dimensity 8050 chip may hail a new title, but at its core, it is identical to Dimensity 1300. Both have four Cortex-A78 cores clocked at max 3.0GHZ and 2.6GHz. Further embued into the chip are four efficiency cores sustaining the phone under light usage.
The device will showcase HIOS, a customized interface built on the foundations of Android 13. The most exciting thing about the device will likely be its affordability.
