If you are very conversant with Tecno’s Phantom series, you would realize that Tecno took a step further and hardly came up with any Phantom 7 just in order to feature its next high-end device as Phantom 8 series. Meanwhile, this isn’t so bizarre because we have seen several other smartphone brands –such as Samsung and iPhone –doing something typical of this.
For the current year, quite a few exclusive smartphones have been released by various mobile brands and with the intent of bridging the competitive gap within the industry of smartphone producers, Tecno is likely adopting the strategy the pair of iPhone and Samsung adopted. iPhone took the advantage of this year to launch it’s iPhone 8 while Samsung –another giant in the smartphone industry – released its Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Samsung S8 just this year. With this impressive introduction into the smartphone arena just this year, we suggest Tecno has also striven to maintain its brand reputation with the feature of its forthcoming Phantom model –Tecno Phantom 8 and 8 Plus.


Based on our review of flagship smartphones here, we have tried to ascertain the remarkable features Tecno Phantom 8 is proposed to sport. Significantly, we believe these features should make up for the likely shortcomings of Tecno’s previous Phantom releases. As regards the Phantom 6 –which Tecno released in the previous year –several complaints have gone viral with users saying the device doesn’t sport a reliable battery. With this, we surely understand that some users are a little disappointed and would be anticipating for a better experience when they buy Tecno Phantom 8.

As one of its significant points, Tecno Phantom 6 came with a superb camera set-up but some users felt that wasn’t just enough to give them the best Phantom experience. In an attempt to take greater steps forwards and replace users’ disappointments with smartphones considered much better, Tecno has shown up its Tecno Phantom 8 alongside its senior counterpart –Tecno Phantom 8 Plus.
In this article, you’re sure to find out the amazing specifications plus the top-notch features of the Tecno Phantom 8.



Based on the pictorial description we have seen, Tecno Phantom 8 should come as a Full HD AMOLED touch-screen device with a display size of 5.7 inches. Impressively, this feature best suits the device and signifies that Tecno believes its Phantom 8 deserves a screen size very typical of its predecessor’s. So, when you buy Tecno Phantom 8, you should expect nothing other than a crisp, brilliant and luminous display quality.

Tecno understands the need to feature its Phantom devices with superb features that should capture customers’ fancies. And one of these superb features is an impressive camera set-up which every model within Phantom series efficiently sports. Some Tecno users think the devices within the Camon series give them the best camera set-ups Tecno has to offer. But again, we can safely argue that Tecno Phantom 8 is built with a magnificent camera set-up which outclasses those of its predecessors including the recent flagship devices within the Camon series –Tecno Camon CX and Tecno Camon CX Air.

The device should sport a Sony Camera fitted just to the rear part of its body. Meanwhile, this Sony rear camera is excellently built as a dual camera which combines 12MP and 13MP. Yet Tecno believes this dual set-up for the rear camera is not just enough to magnify users’ experience and just upfront, Tecno Phantom 8 has a massive camera pegged at 20MP. Again, this comes alongside an LED flash to give users the most awesome selfie experience.


For its predecessors –Tecno Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus –3GB & 4GB were the respective RAM capacities Tecno had to offer. But here, Tecno has proven there is a lot more to add in the aspect of memory set-up. With this, buyers of Tecno Phantom 8 should be looking forward to a massive RAM space of 6GB excellently powered with Octa Chipset (Helio P25). Over and above that, the Octa Chipset comes with a massive speed pegged at 2.6GHz.

For the other aspect of memory set-up, Tecno Phantom 8 is precisely featured with an inbuilt storage capacity supported with 64GB. But if you think this isn’t just pretty suitable for your massive storage of files, Tecno enables you to extend the internal memory up to 256GB –actually with the use of an SD card.


For anyone who is fond of using smartphones heavily –particularly for multi-tasking and prolonged download of large files such as HD videos –a reliable battery is definitely one of the strong points expected of a smartphone.

However, many Tecno users have complained about the battery capacities of Phantom predecessors such as Tecno Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus. In an attempt to make up for the disappointments experienced so far, Tecno has magnified its Phantom series with a preferable battery capacity. In that case, Tecno Phantom 8 is featured with a Lithium battery rated at 3500mAh. With this excellent increase, Tecno hopes its Phantom 8 will sustain users for the minimum duration of 5/6 hours even when the device is heavily used.
