Phantom 6 and its variation TECNO Phantom 6 Plus has dominated on-line technology sites for a while but this has mainly been treated as notional. Nonetheless, it's turned out that these speculations are not so notional after all. There will be an official launch of a totally outlandish Phantom and this time TECNO is saying thus.
However, what inform this post about the next TECNOPhantom are the verbal cues from a top graded staff which imply the cellular multinational may have taken lessons opinions on what the predecessor main, TECNO Phantom 5
didn't get completely right last year.
So, in what regions did last Phantom neglect to impress?
The great thing about the TECNO system is that it takes consumers’ feedbacks seriously and channels them into its R&D, hence, the customary spot-on upgrades go with every flagship. From what we’ve learned, the TECNO Phantom 5 design that is stuff didn't live up to expectations.
Phantom 5 body rim is plastic not metal.
The option of plastic over full alloy in Phantom 5 body rim is a major anti-climax for both reviewers and users of the smartphone that is designed.
"My Phantom 5 caved in at the edge on a significant impact. I had also previously discovered that its champagne golden colour faded along the rim to expose black plastic base"—a Phantom 5 owner
This widely reported flaw in the predecessor Phantom has been worked out in the new TECNO Phantom 6 and 6 Plus as the successor Phantom will drop with premium aluminum-magnesium alloy rims for its 98.1% full metal body casing.
Phantom 5 cameras are only , not wow that is amazing
