Build and Display

Phantom V Flip’s Unique Build and Design

This is Tecno’s first clamshell, foldable smartphone. It has a distinctive, circular external OLED screen with 2 cameras and LED Flash in the ring built around it. Tecno Phantom V Flip is 171 mm tall and under 7 mm thick when unfolded. When folded, it measures 88.8 x 74.1 x 15 mm. Moreover, it weighs 194g.

Vegan Cover

The V Flip’s exterior is covered with vegan leather. What makes it unique is the round cover OLED, surrounded by a round black bezel that houses the cameras and the flash. This rare arrangement makes the V Flip recognizable compared to other premium and peer-based flip phones. The phone comes in Iconic Black, Mystic Dawn colours.

More than your Typical Flip Smartphone

Overall, the Tecno Phantom V Flip looks like your typical modern flip phone – an edge-to-edge foldable OLED on the inside, an excellent design on the outside with a sleek metal hinge, and a small cover display for notifications and widgets.

Tecno’s Self-developed Steel Hinge

The self-developed steel hinge is thin and has a lifespan of above 200,000 cycles. It allows the phone to fold completely gap-free and supports semi-folded states between 30°-150°. However, it does not allow the phone to open completely flat. In its fully unfolded state, the Phantom V Flip is at about 178°.


Planet Cover Screen

It features a 1.32-inch, circular AMOLED Cover display with 466 x 466 pixels (352 ppi) resolution, 800 nits (peak) and 800 nits brightness. The circular screen provides notifications viewing from select applications on the phone based on your settings.

The 1.32″ external display offers several widgets, serves notifications and can be used as a viewfinder for shooting selfies with more capable cameras.

Large Immersive Main Display

When unfolded, the phone measures 171.7 x 74.1 x 7 mm. The 6.9 inches, 107.6 cm2 (~84.6% screen-to-body ratio) screen is quite impressive when turned on. With 1080 x 2640 pixels (~413 ppi density) resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate and 1,000 nits peak resolutions, Tecno Phantom V Flip’s display is undoubtedly one of the most impressive in the mobile industry.

Phantom V Flip: created to Perform

Operating System

It runs on the latest Android platform, Android 13. You can access the latest Android apps and features that improve your user experience as you communicate and use your smartphone for work and entertainment.

Your user experience is further enhanced by Tecno’s own HIOS 13.5, which is fundamental for the customization and personalization of your smartphone for the best user experience.

High-Performance Processor

Phantom V Flip processing unit features:

  • A Mediatek Dimensity 8050 (6 nm) chipset
  • Octa-core (1×3.0 GHz Cortex-A78 & 3×2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU
  • Mali-G77 MC9 GPU

The Dimensity chipset features an octa-core CPU with 4 performance Arm Cortex-A78 processors with peak speeds of 3GHz and a powerful Mali-G77 MC9 GPU. The chip offers supreme gaming with reliable, fast FPS in top titles. This processing power is fueled by ultra-fast quad-channel memory and dual-channel UFS 3.1 storage.


The Phantom V Flip comes with 256 GB internal storage and 8 GB RAM, expandable with up to 8 GB more through the Extended Memory software feature.

Phantom V Flip’s Camera Set-up

Camera Set up

Undoubtedly, Tecno is known for its premium camera experience. Reinforcing its status and brand status as a high-performance phone with key strengths in its camera set-up, Phantom V Flip comes along with the following;

  • Front camera:32 MP, f/2.45, 24mm (wide), 0.8µm, PDAF.
  • Rear camera: Wide (main): 64 MP, f/1.7, 25mm, 1/1.73″, 1.6µm, PDAF; Ultra-wide angle: 13 MP, 1.12µm, f/2.2, PDAF.

These cameras are integrated to provide detailed, high-quality pictures and video recordings. Some niceties come with these cameras: a 64MP primary camera with an RGBW sensor and a 13MP secondary cam for ultrawide photos that supports autofocus and can-do macro shots. The selfie camera uses a 32MP Tetracell sensor and supports autofocus.

Video Recording

The front camera records 1080p videos, while the primary camera records 4K@30fps, 1080p@30/60fps videos. Too bad the camera set-up and system do not have Telephoto lenses with zooming capabilities and do not support Gyro-EIS for image stabilization and improved quality when recording.

Nevertheless, the camera setup offers unique experiences based on the quality of the lenses and the fact that it is a flip phone that gives you distinctive advantages regular phones do not. For example, you can effortlessly take high-quality selfies and record videos of yourself with the primary camera by folding up the phone and having the main dual camera facing you.
