The Phantom V Flip is the best-looking folding phone so far, perfect for those who want a phone that stands out from the crowd and offers a unique user experience. It features a stunning cosmos-inspired design and an amazing circular cover screen, making it attractive. The back has an Eco-leather texture with a lychee pattern, the sides are polished aluminium, and the hinge is steel.

It folds easily into a lovely, neat square and transforms into a vibrant, full-screen phone. The V Flip sort of thing catches the eye when opened in a public space. During the review, multiple people already asked us about the device. In contrast, others who had previously seen the phone advertisement marveled and, in excitement, asked, “Oh, that’s that new TECNO folding phone, the Phantom V Flip.” They wanted to have a feel of the device. At that moment, we knew that the Phantom V Flip 5G wasn’t just a phone but a fashion statement. This futuristic design not only turns heads but is also convenient. It is available in two color options: Iconic Black and Mystic Dawn.

2. The TECNO Phantom V Flip 5G is Portable and fits perfectly in a Pocket

Buyers face a decision when considering many of the latest smartphones. However, they focus on something a bit lighter and more easily pocketable. We are glad to announce that the Phantom V flip is portable.

One hassle every smartphone user has had to deal with is how to keep the device when not in use. This is because most smartphones, including premium smart devices, rarely fit in pockets. However, with the PHANTOM V Flip 5G, you have a pocket smartphone that is perfect and light to carry around.

3. Attractive Display

Now let’s talk about display. The smartphone has a 6.9-inch primary display and a circular 1.32-inch outer display. The primary display is an LTPO FHD+ AMOLED panel that is 6.9 inches in size with 1000 nits of peak brightness and a variable refresh rate from 10 Hz to 120 Hz and 360 Hz touch sampling using any of your fingers.

The circular cover display is a 1.32-inch AMOLED sub-screen with a 60Hz refresh rate and screen brightness as high as 800 nits. The cover screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. From the cover display, you can access weather info, a calendar, vitality rings, alarms, a sound recorder, a timer, a stopwatch, and even the camera.

4. Innovative Planet Screen for Notifications

Another standout feature of the amazing PHANTOM V Flip is its innovative Planet Screen. Even when your Phantom V Flip is closed, notifications appear on the cover screen. Work doesn’t stop when you close your phone. With the TECNO Phantom V Flip, your phone doesn’t need to be open to keep you in the loop. When the device is closed, this compact screen takes over, allowing you to control your device easily.

5. Impressive Camera Performance with Selfies and Video Calls, Hands-Free

For a lot of phone users, camera quality is the top priority. The Phantom V Flip is suitable for all photography enthusiasts. As with videoconferencing, taking selfies is now every day for many people. Selfie lovers can take sharp, steady photos and videos without a tripod. During a video call meeting or interview with a smartphone, users need to hold the device at the right angle to ensure they can be seen. Thanks to Phantom V Flip, you can have your meeting hands-free by sitting on the device and positioning it to the perfect angle.

The front-facing camera boasts a 64MP RGBW primary camera setup with a 13MP ultra-wide angle lens and a 32 MP dual-flash autofocus front camera that lets you capture clear, stunning, and smooth photos and videos. TECNO also introduced a standout feature to the Phantom V Flip called the ‘FreeCam,’ which enables you to take pictures from any angle using any available lens.

6. Great Performance

The Phantom V Flip has a MediaTek Dimensity 8050 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Using the MemFusion, a TECNO virtual RAM feature, users can expand the 8GB of RAM to up to 16GB of RAM. This enhances the device’s performance and enables multitasking by floating windows, switching between applications, splitting the screen, and gaming without experiencing any form of lag. You should also note that it is the first Flip device from TECNO with an ultra-thin vapor chamber (VC) cooling system to help the device dissipate heat.

The phone features the latest software, HiOS V 13.5.0, based on Android 13. This makes the user interface more attractive during phone usage.
