According to Tecno some hours before the launch, it took them over 400 days to plan, design and unleash beauty and the beast as they have dubbed the Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom6 plus. Most of us will have understood the over 400 days as the numbers of days between today and the launch of their 2015 flagship (Tecno Phantom 5), but i think it means they have actually been planning about today for the past 400+ days.

The first Phantom phone (Phantom A) was launched in 2013 and Tecno mobile has since then released three other Phantoms (Phantom Z, Z mini and Phantom 5) excluding the new Tecno Phantom 6 and 6 Plus. The new phantoms are great upgrade to Last year’s considering biometric security measures (Finger print and Iris), design overhaul, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Tecno’s HiOS custom firmware.

Design and Display Review of the New Phantom 6 (Plus).

Tecno Phantom 6 and it’s Pro/Plus variant boast of an outstanding design and display that meet international standard. The Phantom 6 features a Nano-Molded metal body with aluminium framework while Phantom 6 Plus features a full metal body.

The Tecno Phantom 6 is 6.15mm thin/slim which makes it elegant, beautiful and place it on top of the list of the world most slimmest smartphones. Phantom 6 plus on the other hand is 7.7mm thin with stunning look. Both devices rocks curve edges and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect its screen from scratches.

At the back, below the 21MP rear camera of the Tecno phantom 6 plus is a finger print scanner that extend extra layer of security offer to all its users. Unfortunately, the main phantom 6 lacks this amazing feature that is now common among virtually all device launched in the past couple of months.

Phantom 6 Plus is a 6.0-inch FHD display smart phone while Tecno Phantom 6 rocks a 5.5-inch Amoled screen display size. Both devices comes with 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution and screen density of 420 PPI.

Operating System Running on the Phantom Brothers.

They both runs on Tecno’s customized Android firmware/ROM (HiOs) that is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. HiOs is designed to work smoothly with Tecno phones and it is similar to Infinix XOS and Xiaomi’s MIUI. It offers a beautiful and simple user interface with numerous choice of themes and wallpaper to choose from.

Tecno Phantom 6 (Plus) Processor.

The Phantom twins are endowed with powerful and fast processor that guarantee smooth multitasking operations. Gaming and surfing the internet at the same is not going to be a problem on the Phantom 6 (Plus).

They are both powered by the latest version of the Mediatek chipset. Tecno Phantom 6 is powered by a 2.0GHz Helio X20 Octa-core MTK processor while the Phantom 6 plus is powered by a 2.0GHz Helio X20 Deca-core MTK Chipset. They are both fast and power/battery efficient.

Phantom 6 (+) Internal, External and Random Access Memory.

Original Tecno Phantom 6 spots a 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory and an Sdcard slot that supports up to 128GB external memory card.

The Phantom6 + on the other hand rocks a 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory. On this version, you will have to use either two SIM cards or a Sim card and an SD card.

Rear and Front Camera on Tecno Phantom 6.

Tecno mobile enlist the help of Sony for the manufacturing of the camera integrated into Tecno phantom 6 (Plus). This premium camera setup put the phantom brothers on the list of phones with powerful camera.

On the Tecno Phantom 6 is a 13MP AF + 5MP SONY IMX 258 Dual main/back/rear Camera to take an in depth and more clear images. Similar camera set up was used in the newly launched iPhone 7 Plus and Huawei P9. The front facing camera is 8MP with Wide-Angle Lens and flash.

However, Phantom 6 Plus features a more powerful 21MP SONY IMX 230 back Camera with Dual Flash. It’s front facing camera is also 8MP with flash.

Battery Capacity.

The battery capacity found on phantom 6 is a bit disappointing as it is a downgrade to Tecno Phantom 5 battery. It is packed with a non removable 2700 mAh battery.

On the Plus version, a large non removable 4050 mAh battery is found. Don’t know why they packed the original version with so much small battery.

Security Measures/Biometric.

Both version of tecno’s 2016 flagship rocks biometric eye/iris scanner. But an extra layer of security (Finger Print Scanner) is extended to Tecno Phantom 6 Plus. It is stylishly placed below its rear camera.

You don’t know how biometric works? Check explanation below.

A biometric equipment/device uses a reader or scanning device to scanned human biological data/characteristics, a software that converts the scanned information into digital form & compares match points and a database that stores the biometric data for comparison. This data are usually encrypted to prevent identity theft.

To convert the biometric data, the software identify specific points of data as match points. The match points in the database are processed using an algorithm that translates that information into a numeric value. The database value is then compared with the biometric input the end user has entered into the scanner and authentication is either approved/granted or denied.

The working principle of biometric remains the same, no matter what methodology is employed. That is, a record of human’s unique biological data is captured and kept in database and when verification is required, a new record is captured and compared with the previous one in the database. If it matches, it confirms the identity.

USB Type C.

This is new technology used in many phones and laptop manufactured today. USB Type-C port and connector is the latest connection which was finalized around late August 2014. USB Type-C is a lot more easier to use, faster in transfer rate and charging rate than its predecessor(USB Type-B). USB Type-C port measures 8.4mm by 2.6mm and also encourage reverse charging. Read more about USB Types and Versions here. I am glad to witness Tecno mobile dancing to the tune of latest technology.

Been the first phone manufacturer to have a fully functioning assembly plant in Africa, most of their newly released phone was show cased in Africa. But the case is going to be different with phantom 6 (Plus) when they go live on the 25th of September.
