Tecno Phantom 8 Specifications and Price in Nigeria, Dubai

Tecno Mobile skipped Phantom 7 to unveil the Phantom 8 yesterday. So this clears the doubts on which device we have been anticipating for. So we will look into the specs of this phone.

The Tecno Phantom 8 is the latest flagship device from the Chinese brand launched in Dubai. The smartphone will surely be one of the trending Tecno phones this festive season and I know Tecno fans will be delighted to know more about it before purchasing.

Although there is no 18:9 aspect ratio bezel-less display here but the Phantom 8 sports a 5.7-inch IPS screen with about 75.1% screen to body ratio compared to the Phantom 6 Plus that has a 6-inch screen and 74.5% screen to body ratio. The Screen protected with a Corning Gorilla glass to reduce scratches.

Tecno Phantom 8 comes with a dual-camera set up with Sony-made IMX386 12MP and 13MP sensors at the back as suggested by the teasing pictures Tecno released on social media prior the launch date. However, it has 12MP selfie shooter with 2X optical eye zoom, but the second sensor trumps it with up to 10X Super Zoom.


The device is powered by an octa-core Mediatek Helio P25 processor that clocks up to 2.6GHz. As rumored, the Phantom 8 has 6GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM. However, am disappointed in the OS though because i was expecting the latest Android 8 Oreo OS here but Tecno instead launched phantom 8 with Android 7.0 Nougat. For other features of this device, continue below.

So guys, having seen the features and full specs of this phone, what do you think about it? What are the flaws and the highlights?


  1. An awesome smartphone, the camera allegedly said to be made by Sony which really was, its gonna be an amazing experience having the Back / Rear Camera: of 12MP 13MP camera & LED Flash back all together = 25MP
    *.Front Camera: 20MP with LED flash.

    Is very good.

    NExt: Ram and Rom
    6GB of RAM,64GB of ROM
    no doubt this going to be a beast of tool in multitasking.

  2. Taking a closer look at the smartphone design, you will spot that the design is not far from that of Infinix note 4 series, in other words the both smart phones has the same design but with different battery capacity.

    *.Battery: 3500 mAh (non-removable) and The note 4 series boast of 4500mah , which explains that the note 4 is going to be heavier, judging by the battery capacity.

  3. Sir please Permit to post here the alleged 4GBANDS its 4G BandFDD its said to have the below frequency-LTE:B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B7/B8/B20/B28A;

    post about the flaws below.

  4. If there are big time flaws it will be listed out in future but for now.
    I will be talking about the Battery And the Front design.

    We all know that the trends behind 18:9 aspect ratio bezel- less display is what people watchout for nowadays, this which the smartphone lacked, adding that feature would have made it a perfect finish, which qualifies it to have the look of Samsung S8 and others,
    this lacks makes it look like every other expensive smartphone with similar specs but with a bit difference, which is just the improvement of the Oreo 8 os.

    Finally atleast 4000
    mahplus would have win the war for this device, anyways its all good.

  5. I see this people are no longer serious again with average specs ND high prices, and some people will still buy cos dey re just buying name ND not phone

  6. Having read and understood the post as explained by the OP and the numerous comments posted by Uche, i wanna state some silent point which we have been over looking for a while now.

    The point so raised by Jossy is one of those things which we have been over looking and i thank him for looking at this post with his third eyes.

    We are busy spending our hard earned money on increased RAM, ROM, Battery Capacity and If possible, Improved Camera

    Can someone out there tell us what's spectacular about this device under review that other model from TECNO do not have.

    ANONYMOUS would agree with me that I have agreed to his instructions and arranged all my comments in one piece and That's so professional of me.

    It has been long i looked for someone's troubles and i hoped that i don't get beaten one day.

    Always arrange your post in one piece cos it's so unprofessional of you to scatter them here and there.

    Na joke i dey oooo

  7. I just see them. Copying the iPhone
    It is strikingly similar to the recent iPhone devices
    Infinix is copying Samsung on the other hand
    The phone looks nice and must be impressive
    But I’d rather buya xiaomi phone. with that money
    I hate hybrid Sims with passion
    Though that 64gb actually made up for it

  8. What about techno phantom 8plus? when will that be out hoping the battery would surpass the phantom 8

  9. I won the questions of what is the next phantom.

  10. I won the questions of what is the next phantom.

  11. 6GB RAM AND 64GB INBUILT RUNNING ON A 2.2GHZ PROCESSING speed is good but the price is a set back. Somebody should tell TECNO they need to UPGRADE their phones VIA OTA. I’m not EXCITED about this. WHY NOT A 6″ SCREEN and A STANDARD DUAL SIM TRAY WITH A DEDICATED SD CARD SLOT.

  12. 138 bail!!! That's lots Of cash dude

  13. The phone specs are cute and over updated,just a bit step back on this battery 3500mah isn't totally ok for such phone

  14. But in all i won't forget to say Thanks for update bro wizy,really Appreciate this one.

  15. @paul so u still listen to that guy..that not good....don't listen to the audience, but ride on .but with faith u will be the best...a quote from ****somto

    1. My dear, kindly read my post again cos i had said clearly that na joke i dey ooo

      I got no problem with anyone

  16. the specs are well crafted and price is not pocket friendly

  17. this techno phone is the best so far
    ram 6gb awesome
    battery capacity awesome
    but looking at the price I was scared away

  18. wizy pls can u suggest a phone fr me to buy
    phone of 30k
    which the battery capacity is okay and ram is okay..
