The foldable phone market has been making waves with brands like Samsung, OPPO, and Huawei joining the foldable phone club. However, these devices faced initial challenges like loose hinges, screen cracks, and dust accumulation. In this ever-evolving landscape, TECNO, Pakistan’s premier mobile phone brand, is making a significant entry with the launch of its first foldable phone, the Phantom V Fold. Packed with cutting-edge features and an enticing price point, TECNO is poised to revolutionize the foldable phone market.

Immersive Dual-Screen Experience
The Phantom V Fold empowers users with a higher level of smartphone proficiency, whether for gaming, entertainment, or work. It features dual LTPO screens with an adaptive 10-120Hz high refresh rate, ensuring a smooth experience in both folded and unfolded modes. The 6.42-inch sub-screen boasts a unique micro-curved design and a 21:9 aspect ratio, offering a classic single-screen smartphone experience. When unfolded, the Phantom V Fold reveals an impressive 7.85-inch display with an optimal 8:7 aspect ratio, providing an expansive canvas on an ultra-flat screen with minimal creasing.
Innovative Hinge Technology
TECNO’s commitment to cutting-edge technology shines through the Phantom V Fold’s hinge system. The brand’s self-developed aerospace-grade drop-shaped hinge creates a remarkably flat main inner screen surface, nearly eliminating visible creases. This hinge features an innovative reverse snap structure that enhances structural stability, and its aerospace-grade materials ensure strength and lightweight construction. With a screen crease measuring a mere 0.11mm when new and the ability to endure 200,000 folds, this hinge sets new standards for durability.
Versatile Camera System
Photography enthusiasts will be delighted by the Phantom V Fold’s versatile camera setup. It boasts a triple-lens rear system comprising a high-resolution 50MP main sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide sensor for expansive shots, and a 2MP macro sensor for close-up photography. Additionally, the device features a dual-lens camera system on the front, enhancing the photography experience and offering a wide range of creative possibilities.
Under the hood, the Phantom V Fold is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, delivering exceptional performance for multitasking and seamless screen transitions. With a generous 12GB of RAM and ample 256GB of storage, this device ensures swift and efficient operation. The robust 5000mAh battery keeps you powered throughout the day, and when it’s time to recharge, the 45W fast charging support comes to the rescue.

TECNO understands the challenges of large-screen Foldable Smartphones and has introduced HiOS13 Fold, a refined and customized operating system based on Google’s Android 13 platform. This specialized OS addresses the unique demands of foldable devices, ensuring a seamless and intuitive user experience.
