Mobile phone brand Tecno has officially launched its first-ever foldable handset, the Phantom V Fold, in Malaysia today. Those interested may now pre-order it via Urban Republic, or via the brand’s official online stores on Lazada and Shopee starting today.
To recap, the Tecno Phantom V Fold is a book-styled foldable smartphone in the similar vein as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold series, HONOR’s Magic V series and so on. In its folded form, the phone offers a 6.42-inch LTPO AMOLED screen with 1080 x 2550 pixel resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate, while unfolded we’re greeted with a larger 7.85-inch LTPO AMOLED display with 2000 x 2296 pixel resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. Additionally, its hinge features a self-developed fixed-axis rotate and slide technology as well as a durable reverse snap structure, which enables for a “virtually crease-free” viewing experience when opened.
Under the foldable phone’s hood is confirmed to be a 4nm 5G-enabled MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, which is paired together with a single memory configuration consisting of 12 GB RAM and 512 GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. Tecno says included onboard is a RAM expansion feature that can convert available storage into additional virtual memory of up to 8 GB, therefore enabling up to a whopping total of 21 GB. Besides that, the Phantom V Fold also comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and power button combo, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC wireless connectivity.
Powering the phone is a 5,000 mAh battery, which comes with 45 W fast charging support via USB-C. According to the company, the phone can achieve a 40% charge in just 15 minutes, while a full top-up is said to take under an hour. In case you’re wondering, it does not feature any wireless or reverse wireless charging capabilities.
As for imaging, housed within the circular camera bump on the back of the Phantom V Fold are dual 50 MP sensors for the phone’s primary and 2x optical zoom telephoto shooters, as well as a 13 MP ultra-wide sensor. Meanwhile its exterior display features a 32 MP front-facing camera housed within a punch-hole cutout, while situated on the right half of its interior screen is a 16 MP selfie camera. Video-wise, Tecno says the phone’s rear camera setup is capable of recording up to 4K footage at 30 fps, whereas both of its selfie cameras are able to shoot up to 1080p at 60 fps.
According to the brand’s official stores on Shopee and Lazada, the all-new Tecno Phantom V Fold is expected to ship out in Malaysia towards the end of this month. Early adopters can pre-order the foldable smartphone at a special discounted price of RM 4,999 both online and in-store starting today until 9 May 2023. However, keep in mind that only Urban Republic carries both the Black and White colours, while Tecno’s Shopee and Lazada online stores offer just the former option at this time.
Furthermore, Tecno adds that those pre-ordering within this period are also entitled to receive a free smart foldable electric scooter worth RM 899 while stocks last. Outside of this promotion, the Phantom V Fold will retail for RM 5,399.
