However, the devices are scheduled to be available in India and the Middle east by the end of this month.
The phones will be offered in a limited number of countries in Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Almost all of the specifications are shared by the pair. The sole difference between the phones is their cameras. Let us have a look at what they have to offer.
Specifications for the Tecno Phantom X2 Series
The Tecno Phantom X2 series has a distinct design. These phones are easily distinguished by their centrally situated huge camera island on the back. To distinguish it from the vanilla variant, the pro model features a colorful ring around one of its cameras.
The devices have a 6.8-inch curved AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, a refresh rate of 120Hz, a touch sampling rate of 360Hz, and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The 10-bit panel, which features a centered punch-hole and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, can cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset powers the phones. A vapor chamber cooling mechanism, LPDDR5x RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage are included with the SoC. In terms of software, they boot HiOS 12.0, which is based on Android 12.
Dual SIM, 5G, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.3, GNSS, NFC, and USB 2.0 (Type C) are among the connectivity options available on smartphones. They don’t have dual stereo speakers, but they do include an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
The major highlight of the Tecno Phantom X2 Pro is a 50MP Samsung JN1 retractable portrait camera with 2.5x magnification and an f/1.49 aperture lens. This camera is joined by a 50MP Samsung GNV primary camera and a 13MP Samsung 3L6 ultra-wide camera with macro vision capability.
Autofocus is supported by all three cameras. However, none of them have OIS.
The Tecno Phantom X2, on the other hand, comes with a 64MP Samsung GWB primary camera with OIS, the same 13MP ultrawide camera with macro vision capability as the pro model, and a 2MP depth sensor.
Both phones have a 32MP selfie camera and are powered by a 5,160mAh battery. Last but not least, they have 45W quick wired charging support.
