Chinese phone maker Tecno today announced it has begun the production of the Phantom V Fold in India as a part of its commitment to the “Make in India” program. It will be manufactured at Tecno’s facility in Noida, which is currently capable of producing 24 million phones a year.
The brand also announced that the Phantom V Fold will be launched in India on April 11, with early access sale on Amazon starting from April 12. The foldable smartphone will be sold for INR77,777 ($945/€870) in India, but this price is applicable only for limited stock, and the brand hasn’t revealed how much the Phantom V Fold will cost in India later.
Tecno Phantom V Fold
The Phantom V Fold is Tecno’s first foldable smartphone, and it has the Dimensity 9000+ SoC at the helm with 12GB RAM and up to 512GB of storage (we don’t know which configuration is coming to India). Its FullHD+ cover display measures 6.42″ diagonally, while the foldable screen has a 7.85″ diagonal with a 2,296×2,000-pixel resolution. Both are LTPO-type panels with a 120Hz screen refresh rate and 1,100 nits peak brightness.
The Tecno Phantom V Fold packs a 5,000 mAh battery with 45W charging support and comes with five cameras – three on the back (50MP primary + 50MP telephoto + 13MP ultrawide), one on the inside (16MP selfie), and one on the cover display (32MP selfie). However, unlike the vivo X Fold/Fold+, the Phantom V Fold doesn’t feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. It opts for a side-mounted solution instead.
