TECNO has announced its first Flip smartphone in Nigeria. It calls this one the TECNO Phantom V Flip. This device is coming just months after the smartphone giant unveiled its first foldable smartphone in the TECNO Phantom V Fold. TECNO as a brand has always been bullish when it comes to innovating and introducing new technologies to its smartphone lines and it has never shied away from challenging the big players (Samsung, Apple, etc.) in the smartphone industry.
TECNO’s entry into the foldable market means one thing; foldable device enthusiasts would not have to dig deep into their pocket before they can experience this technology. That being said, here is everything you should know about the TECNO Phantom V Flip unveiled in Nigeria.

While many brands (Motorola, Samsung, etc.) that are trying out their hands at foldable devices have boosted the size of the outer display on their latest foldable devices, it is surprising to see that TECNO opted for the old-school tiny display that doesn’t offer much. The outer display on this device is a 1.32-inch display. Although small, this display stands out from what we’re used to. It is a circular display that gives the device a unique feel.
For the software on this device, you get the Android 13 operating system with HIOS 13.5. The processor is the MediaTek Dimensity 8050 chipset, backed by 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
Powering the TECNO Phantom V Flip is a 4000 mAh battery that supports 45W wired charging, which is pretty impressive when compared to what’s on the Galaxy Z Flip 5.
