Tecno is one of the brands that the Chinese phone manufacturer Transsion is using for its oversee markets. Standout features include everything on this device from the 3D borderless screen with 70 degree curve, to the colors derived from artistic imagination, and the stunning glass surface etched texture to the perfect 36.5°curved angle. It goes without saying, Phantom X has also achieved a number of firsts in technological innovation feats in the process.

The super large sensor can support the superb 50MP Ultra-Night camera to capture magnificent pictures. The mind blowing curved glass surface etched texture which takes nearly 100 tests and dozens of production processes to perfect. Not to mention, the AI virtual assistant Ella is one of the leading offline intelligent that can support more than 20 functions. The company has taken its Phantom lineup and has designated it as their flagship product lineup.

The Phantom X offers premium-level features that boost the value of the device. The most notable one is the 50MP main sensor aided by a proper 13MP telephoto camera (2x zoom) and an 8MP ultrawide unit with autofocus. The selfie side hasn't been overlooked either so the rather big punch-hole on the front houses a massive 48MP main camera and an 8MP one for ultrawide selfies. The device has a big, curved 6.7-inch OLED panel, and 90Hz refresh rate. There's an optical fingerprint reader pllaced underneath it.

Other features include 33W fast charging, which should deliver a 70% charge to the 4,700 mAh battery in 30 minutes, a dual SIM + microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom. The Phantom X features a well-rounded premium-looking design with a patterned glass back, Gorilla Glass 5 on the front, and an aluminum frame. It's a rare case of premium features combined with a mid-range SoC that can potentially snatch some buyers from the big-named brands. This is, all in all, a very interesting phone.
