Under the hood, the Phantom V Flip is powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 8050 chipset housing an octa-core CPU capable of soaring up to a formidable 3.0 GHz. Initial specifications reveal a configuration with 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM. It can be further expanded by an additional 8 GB via the Extended Memory software feature.
The foldable panel, adopting a 22:9 aspect ratio, is a visual treat. Offering a smooth 120 Hz refresh rate and an impressive peak brightness of 1,000 nits. But the allure doesn’t stop there. On the external facade, you’ll find a handy 1.32-inch display. Complete with a slew of widgets and the ability to serve notifications. It even moonlights as a convenient viewfinder for capturing selfies using the more capable cameras.
Speaking of cameras, the Phantom V Flip boasts an arsenal of photographic prowess. The primary shooter is a formidable 64 MP with a sizable 1/1.73-inch sensor, a wide f/1.7 aperture lens, and PDAF for rapid and precise focusing. Accompanying it is a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle lens with autofocus capabilities, ensuring a wide field of vision.
Internally, the camera resides within a discreet punch hole and features a 32 MP sensor. Ensuring your selfies are nothing short of stunning.
When unfolded, this technological marvel stands at a height of 171 mm and maintains an astonishingly slim profile, measuring just under 7 mm thick. Tecno has thoughtfully incorporated a robust 4,000 mAh battery into the design. Using a two-cell solution that ranks among the largest in its class. Charging is a breeze with 45W wired support, and Tecno asserts that a mere 15 minutes is all it takes to replenish the battery halfway.
