Tecno Phantom V Fold Announced: Could Be The Most Affordable Foldable Smartphone In India


Tecno has officially confirmed the Tecno Phantom V Fold, the brand’s first-ever foldable smartphone. The device hides a large, folded display, while a regular smartphone display remains visible on the outside. Both screens have a 120Hz refresh rate.

Tecno had recently hinted at a foldable smartphone concept and mere weeks later, announced the Tecno Phantom V Fold. The premium Android smartphone has launched at the ongoing MWC 2023 and will arrive in India. Even though the Phantom V Fold will challenge the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series, it could be the most affordable foldable phone. Let’s look at all the available details about Tecno’s first foldable Android smartphone.

Tecno Phantom V Fold Specifications, Features

The Tecno Phantom V Fold is Tecno’s first foldable smartphone. The brand claims it is the world’s first left-right foldable smartphone. The Phantom V Fold features a folding mechanism with a reverse snap hinge structure. However, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, the smartphone’s inner display doesn’t have a gap.

The Tecno Phantom V Fold is a “left-right” foldable device. The outer and always-exposed 6.42-inch Full HD+ AMOLED LPTO display has a punch-hole design on the front with a resolution of 1080 x 2520 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate.

When unfolded, the Phantom V Fold offers a large 7.85-inch 2K AMOLED LTPO screen. The inner display has a 2000 x 2296 pixels resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. This screen has a punch-hole cut-out as well.

Tecno has embedded a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset inside the Tecno Phantom V Fold. The octa-core, dual 5G SoC is manufactured on the enhanced TSMC 4nm manufacturing node. MediaTek has assured the chipset offers “excellent performance while reducing battery consumption”. The Dimensity 9000+ SoC is paired with up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.

The back of the Tecno Phantom V Fold has a 50MP primary camera with a “super light-sensitive sensor” housed in a large circular camera island. The triple camera setup on the device includes a 50MP telephoto lens that offers 2x zoom, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a dual-LED flash.

The inner display reportedly has a 16MP camera facing the user. Additionally, there’s a 32MP camera nestled inside the punch-hole cut out of the always-exposed outer screen.

The Tecno Phantom V Fold has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication. The smartphone packs a 5,000mAh battery that supports 45W fast charging. The foldable phone measures 159.4 x 140.4 x 6.9mm when unfolded, and weighs around 299 grams. The smartphone runs Android 13 OS with a layer of Tecno’s HiOS UI.

Tecno Phantom V Fold Price, Availability In India

The Tecno Phantom V Fold will be available in India, but the exact launch date hasn’t been confirmed. The foldable Android smartphone will be available in black and white colors.

Although Tecno hasn’t officially confirmed the India pricing of the smartphone, some reports suggest the Phantom V Fold will cost ₹89,999 (approx. $1,088) for the 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant. The model with 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage will cost ₹99,999 (approx. $1,209). Early adopters could purchase the Phantom V’s base model for Rs 79,999 (approx. $968) during an early bird sale.
