It’s now a year and some eight months since TECNO unveiled TECNO Phantom 8 which has now been succeeded by TECNO Phantom 9.
The Phantom 9 comes with better specs in most aspects (screen size, camera technology, etc.) though we are not yet sure when this flagship device will be rolled out to the Ugandan market.
It’s already in Nigeria and Kenya will have it in the coming week, according to reports. TECNO Phantom 9 price in Uganda is Shs919,000. TECNO Phantom 8 is currently retailing at Shs1.2m on Jumia. The Phantom 9 retail price has been reduced just as we saw with Infinix NOTE 6 which followed the NOTE 5.
Information we gathered from sources and other tech blogs indicates that the TECNO Phantom 9 will be running on both HiOS 5.0 and Android 9 Pie and powered by an Octa-core 2.35GHz（MT6765) processor.
It has been given a 6.4-inch screen which will display in both Full High Definition (FHD) and AMOLED. To facilitate a full-screen display, they attached a Dot Notch.
Aside from giving this high-end device a bigger screen than that of its predecessor, its storage is also bigger at 128GB and the RAM is 6GB, like that of the TECNO Phantom 8.
Just as you might have already been impressed by the front end, the back part of the device is also beautiful. TECNO’s crown jewel has a Lapland aurora 2ack Cover Design and it is slim and artistically angled at the bottom to facilitate a firm grip. Reviews show it weighs only 164 grams.
