Finally, the mobile giant TECNO gives a positive nod to the long held views by tech faithful that the Asian multinational will be dropping its flagship of the year, come September in an international launch.
News of the yet to be released TECNO Phantom 6 and its variant TECNO Phantom 6 Plus has dominated online tech blogs for a while now but this has largely been treated as speculative. However, it has turned out that these speculations are not so speculative after all. There will be an official release of a totally outlandish Phantom and this time TECNO is saying so.
However, what inform this article about the next TECNOPhantom are the verbal cues from a top ranked staff which suggest the mobile multinational may have taken lessons from consumers’ feedbacks on what the predecessor flagship, TECNO Phantom 5 did not get totally right last year.
So, in what areas did last Phantom fail to impress?
The good thing about the TECNO system is that it takes consumers’ feedbacks seriously and channels them into its R&D, thus, the usual spot-on upgrades go with every flagship. From what we’ve heard, the TECNO Phantom 5 material design did not live up to expectations.
Phantom 5 body rim is plastic not metal
The choice of plastic over full metal in Phantom 5 body rim is a major anti-climax for both reviewers and users of the brilliantly designed smartphone.
“My Phantom 5 caved in at the edge on a major impact. I had also earlier noticed that its champagne gold hue faded along the rim to expose black plastic base”—a Phantom 5 owner
This widely reported flaw in the predecessor Phantom has been resolved in the new TECNO Phantom 6 and 6 Plus as the successor Phantom will drop with premium aluminum-magnesium alloy rims for its 98.1% full metal body casing.
Phantom 5 cameras are just great, not wow
Even though the TECNO Phantom 5 sported breathtaking 13MP rear/8MP front low light cameras, Phantom enthusiasts felt the photo-focused mid-range TECNO Camon C8 pulled off more stunning shots.
What response do they get for their lackluster review of TECNO Phantom 5 cameras?
A monstrous dual rear camera upgrades (13MP + 5MP) in TECNO Phantom 6 and chilling 21MP SONYTM rear camera in the TECNO Phantom 6 Plus phablet variant.
And finally, a deca-core icing on the cake
Whilethe Phantom 5 passed the processor test inmany quarterswhere its octa-core processor wasbrought under the heat, TECNO wanted a sweet ending;a done and dusted occasion to its next Phantom. It got just that, the new TECNO Phantom 6is believed to be launched with groundbreaking deca-core processor; one of the first flagships in the market with such huge specs.
Indeed, TECNO as a brand puts consumers’ feedbacks at the center of its groundbreaking innovations.
