Design and Display

From what we have seen so far from the leaked image of the new Phantom 9, the phone comes with a killer design, inspired by the aurora lights that illuminate the northern and southern hemispheres of the earth. The phone has a glass back panel with aluminum frames on the sides. The device will be available in three color options, which includes Blue, Red, and Black, with other beautiful shades.

The phone sports a big 6.4-inch AMOLED Full-HD+ display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The waterdrop notch is well cut out, given the display a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and the smartphone getting about 83.4% screen-to-ratio.

Camera and Battery

In terms of camera, the latest Phantom 9 is equipped with a better and more powerful camera than the dual camera on the Tecno Phantom 8. The device is given a triple rear camera setup which contains a 16MP main shooter with quad-LED and PDAF, a 2MP depth sensor, and a wide-angle 8MP camera. These cameras work in great harmony to deliver perfect photo shots. The single 32MP selfie camera on the front reminds me of the latest Infinix Hot S4. The two smartphones come with the same selfie camera pixel, capable of taking impressive selfies. There is also a perfectly arranged dual-LED flash just above the bezels on top of the display.

For power, the device is fueled by a fair battery capacity of 3,500mAh with a fast charging technology for fast battery top-up.

Hardware and Software
