September 29, 2016

The Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is a recently launched mid-range priced Phablet.

The Phantom 6 Plus is a variant of the Tecno Phantom 6 and it features some exciting tech specifications that make it the best Tecno Mobile smartphone you can buy right now.

That said, here is what the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus has to offer.




Display Size: 6.0-inch

Display Type: LTPS

Screen Resolution: 1920 x 1080 Pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 368 ppi

Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 3


You get a 6.0-inch LTPS display 1920 x 1080 Pixels Full HD resolution display. A 6.0-inch display is huge and is currently the standard for Android Phablets.

The Tecno Phantom 6 Plus uses a Low-temperature Polycrystalline Silicon (LTPS) display which is less commonly used but still a high-end display technology which is at par with AMOLED displays.

The decision by Tecno Mobile to employ the technology could be due to the excellent energy saving properties of the display technology since it does take lots battery juice to power a 6.0-inch Full HD display.

The Tecno Phantom 6 Plus display has a screen resolution density of about 368 ppi, which is less than the 420 ppi score found on the Tecno Phantom 6.


Dimensions: 160.35 x 83.46 x 7.7 mm

The Tecno Phantom 6 Plus has a metallic (Aluminum) build and it does look good, but not as good as the super slim Tecno Phantom 6.


The Phantom 6 Plus design resembles to some extent the Infinix Note but is in comparison to the latter slightly smaller.


Operating System: HiOS based on Android 6.0

CPU: Helio X20 2.0 GHz Octa-core


Internal Memory: 64 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 128 GB


The performance profile of the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is awesome and is one of the core reasons why Tecno wants you to buy the smartphone.

First, it features the Helio X20 CPU, which is one of the best MediaTek chipsets, (it’s only rivaled by Helio X25 and the recently launched Helio X30). The inclusion of the Helio X20 could be a deliberate move since the chipset is kinda optimized for large screen with high resolutions.

Second, the smartphone is powered by some 4GB RAM, a quantity that is just right. The chipset and the RAM combined makes the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus the most powerful smartphone Tecno Mobile has ever made.

In addition to these, you get 64 GB as internal storage and a Micro-SD slot that can support up to 128 GB of memory.


Rear Camera: 21 MP

    the phone is awesome. they tried and they succeded. But on the international front they dont stand out really. Since they are eying the UAE market its only a matter of time before the real competition comes. I was a tecno die hard when kitkat was in fashion but now(owned a H6 and F5), I do other excellent chineese I think you should check out. I now own a LeEco le2 pro with the MTK X25, 5.5″ FHD, 32GB- 4GB combo, 21MP/ 8MP camera pack, fingerprint scanner, with unibody metal construction,with a design that everyone loves , all of this pack for 25k ! once you go international, you ain’t never going back!

    • Hey Felix,

      The LeEco Le2 Pro is awesome!

      You have a very good point. For the Kenyan market, the Phantom 6 Plus is one of the best (mid-range priced) smartphone you can buy but on the international scene, buyers are spoilt for choice.

      But i guess the core competency with Tecno is how they are able to understand the market needs of the markets they are in and deliver products that will sell themselves. Yeah, going global will be tough, but i have a feeling that this is just a start of more exciting products to come.
