Tecno may seem obscure among Android smartphone OEMs to some; however, the company has recently risen to the higher echelons of global recognition thanks to products like the Phantom X2 Pro 5G. It was honestly unclear if this inaugural retractable-lens device was a concept of some sort or not at its launch; however, it will now be officially pre-orderable soon.
This is particularly good news for fans of mobile portrait photography in India, as Tecno will be selling the next-generation Phantom X2 Pro via Amazon in this country. Then again, your enthusiasm for potentially expected new technology could be tempered by the price of the smartphone.
Phones with ultra-high-end camera tricks like this are often coupled with specs that can otherwise be disappointing. That’s much less the case with the X2 Pro, though: it has the top-end (albeit state-of-the-art) Dimensity 9000 SoC to begin with.
Tecno and Amazon have also announced that the Phantom X2 Pro will be available in 12GB LPDDR5 RAM/256GB internal storage configurations. On the other hand, the partners have chosen to leave their final price to the imagination until their pre-orders begin. January 172023.
Hopefully its premium specs and features won’t make too much of an impact during the X2 Pro’s inaugural retail release on that date.
