Tecno Phantom 5 Coming Soon



Here comes the all New Tecno Phantom 5 flagship smartphone from Tecno Mobile Kenya!

If you know how the mobile phone industry works, then you are aware all the top brands, Apple, Samsung, Sony, LG, etc. always release teasers of upcoming smartphones. And just today, Tecno Kenya posted a teaser on their Facebook page giving us a glimpse of the companys new flagship device.


The post is actually sponsored, and that is why it has not gotten so much attention. But luckily, I stumbled upon it and I thought you should know about the next generation Tecno Phantom smartphone.


The mysterious Tecno smartphone

This is the mysterious Tecno Mobile smartphone, with a 13MP camera, and a finger print scanner at the back. As hinted from the teaser, the phone will either launch or go on sell on Tuesday the 22/09/2015. It is most likely that the finger print reader will be majorly used to unlock the phone perhaps without even touching the power button. This is hinted by the start your journey with a fingertip statement on the photo. We will confirm it soon though, and we will keep you updated. Please take a look at the great design. I cannot wait to see this phone by the way!

And it does not need you to be a genius to see that the next Tecno flagship has a finger print sensor on the back, and a 13 MP snapper. The phone also looks very slim and it is made up of brushed aluminum just like the iPhone or the Galaxy s6.

The Tecno Phantom 5 also has a dual LED flash next to the camera, and if you look closely, it is comparable to the True Tone flash found on the iPhone, so, perhaps, this might be a great flash from Tecno Mobile.

The Tecno Phantom 5 looks absolutely gorgeous, and this photo shows you the finger print reader, the dual led flash and the noise cancellation mic on top. It also seems we will get a rose-gold treat just like the one we received from Apple.

There is also a visible noise cancellation mic somewhere at the upper side of the back. Well, this is really a high end smartphone.


If you have been following Tecno trends of late, you will also recall that the company released a flagship smartphone last year, the Tecno Phantom Z that was meant to take on the Galaxy S5. This year however, the company has only been concentrating on the low-to-mid range phones.

This has seen the release of the camera-centric Camon C8.

If the teaser says it all, then we are looking at a Tecno Phantom Zs successor, and a worthy competitor of the Huawei Ascend P8, the Sony Xperia Z3, the iPhone 6, and of course, the Samsung Galaxy S6.

However, it is still interesting to see that the camera is a mere 13 Megapixels yet Tecno had decided to jump to 16MP for the Phantom Z.

Well, if the upcoming finger print reader equipped Tecno smartphone is a real flagship, then, Tecno must have given up on the Megapixel race and rather concentrated on availing the best sensor on a phone.

Remember, the iPhone 6 has a mere 8 MP camera, yet still holds the top position when smartphone cameras are ranked. It was just when the iPhone 6s got here that the company finally went for a 12MP snapper. And as you know very well, Megapixels do not mean that much after all.

Tecno Mobile Kenya says, your journey begins with your fingertip. The hashtag the company is using to promote the phone is #LeaveYourMark, even though this hashtag is by no means trending on Twitter.



Perhaps the company did not leverage the social network. The important date you should mark on your calendar is the 22/09/2015, which is just a few days from now. The day is most likely the launch date of the great phone.
