Tecno has launched a new foldable phone on our shores, the Tecno Phantom V Fold, and it’s pretty darn affordable. While the Chinese company isn’t widely known in the smartphone market, the foldable device does look quite promising for the money – on paper, at least.
Only one variant of the Phantom V Fold is offered in Malaysia. Sporting 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage, it retails at only RM4,999. This price tag undercuts other foldable phones in our market now, including the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Honor Magic Vs.
For that kind of money, the Phantom features a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, a 7.85-inch 2296 x 2000 AMOLED primary display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 6.42-inch 2550 x 1080 AMOLED cover screen with the same 120Hz refresh rate, as well as 16MP and 32MP selfie cameras for the inner and cover screens respectively.
Other specifications of the Phantom include a triple camera system (50MP primary + 50MP telephoto + 13MP ultra-wide angle), a 5,000maAh battery with 45W fast charging, and HiOS 13 Fold based on Android 13 out of the box.
