At exactly 5PM Nigerian time on September 25 2016, the launch event kick off at Armani Hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirate where the Tecno Phantoms of 2016 were unveiled.

Design and Display Review of the New Tecno Phantom 6 (Plus).

Tecno Phantom 6 and it’s Pro/Plus variant boast of an outstanding design and display that meet international standard. The original version features a Nano-Molded metal body with aluminium framework while Phantom 6 Plus features a full metal body.

The Tecno Phantom 6 is 6.15mm thin/slim which makes it elegant, beautiful and place it on top of the list of the world most slimmest smartphones. Phantom 6 plus on the other hand is 7.7mm thin with stunning look. Both devices rocks curve edges and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect its screen from scratches.

At the back, below the 21MP rear camera of the Tecno phantom 6 plus is a finger print scanner that extend extra layer of security offer to all its users. Unfortunately, the main phantom 6 lacks this amazing feature that is now common among virtually all device launched in the past couple of months.

The Plus variant is a 6.0-inch FHD display smart phone while Phantom 6 rocks a 5.5-inch Amoled screen display size. Both devices comes with 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution and screen density of 420 PPI.

Operating System Running on the Phantom Brothers.

Both Tecno Phantom 6 and Pro runs on Tecno’s customized Android firmware/ROM (HiOs) that is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. HiOs is designed to work smoothly with Tecno phones and it is similar to Infinix XOS and Xiaomi’s MIUI. It offers a beautiful and simple user interface with numerous choice of themes and wallpaper to choose from.

Tecno Phantom 6 (Plus) Processor.

The Phantom twins are endowed with powerful and fast processor that guarantee smooth multitasking operations. Gaming and surfing the internet at the same is not going to be a problem on the Phantom 6 (Plus).

They are both powered by the latest version of the Mediatek chipset. Tecno Phantom 6 is powered by a 2.0GHz Helio X20 Octa-core MTK processor while the Phantom 6 plus is powered by a 2.0GHz Helio X20 Deca-core MTK Chipset. They are both fast and power/battery efficient.

Tecno Phantom 6 (+) Internal, External and Random Access Memory.

Original Phantom 6 spots a 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory and an Sdcard slot that supports up to 128GB external memory card.

The Tecno Phantom 6 pro on the other hand rocks a 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory. On this version, you will have to use either two SIM cards or a Sim card and an SD card.

Tecno Phantom 6 (Plus) Rear and Front Camera.

Tecno mobile enlist the help of Sony for the manufacturing of the camera integrated into the phantom flagships. This premium camera setup put the phantom brothers on the list of phones with powerful camera.

On the Tecno Phantom 6 is a 13MP AF + 5MP SONY IMX 258 Dual main/back/rear Camera to take an in depth and more clear images. Similar camera set up was used in the newly launched iPhone 7 Plus and Huawei P9. The front facing camera is 8MP with Wide-Angle Lens and flash.

However, Tecno Phantom 6 Plus features a more powerful 21MP SONY IMX 230 back Camera with Dual Flash. It’s front facing camera is also 8MP with flash.

Techno Phantom 6 (Plus +) Battery Capacity.

The battery capacity found on tecno phantom 6 is a bit disappointing as it is a downgrade when compared to Tecno Phantom 5 battery. It is packed with a non removable 2700 mAh battery.

On the Plus version, a large non removable 4050 mAh battery is found. Don’t know why they packed the original version with so much small battery.

Security Measures/Biometric On Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus.

Both  2016 phantom flagships rock biometric eye/iris scanner. But an extra layer of security (Finger Print Scanner) is extended to Tecno Phantom 6 Plus. It is stylishly placed below its rear camera.

You don’t know how biometric works? Check explanation below.

A biometric equipment/device uses a reader or scanning device to scanned human biological data/characteristics, a software that converts the scanned information into digital form & compares match points and a database that stores the biometric data for comparison. This data are usually encrypted to prevent identity theft.

To convert the biometric data, the software identify specific points of data as match points. The match points in the database are processed using an algorithm that translates that information into a numeric value. The database value is then compared with the biometric input the end user has entered into the scanner and authentication is either approved/granted or denied.

The working principle of biometric remains the same, no matter what methodology is employed. That is, a record of human’s unique biological data is captured and kept in database and when verification is required, a new record is captured and compared with the previous one in the database. If it matches, it confirms the identity.

USB Type C on Tecno Phantom 6 (Plus).

This is new technology used in many phones and laptop manufactured today. USB Type-C port and connector is the latest connection which was finalized around late August 2014. USB Type-C is a lot more easier to use, faster in transfer rate and charging rate than its predecessor(USB Type-B). USB Type-C port measures 8.4mm by 2.6mm and also encourage reverse charging. Read more about USB Types and Versions. I am glad to witness Tecno mobile dancing to the tune of latest technology.

  1. Will there be a fingerprint scanner?
    How many processors will it possess?

    Looking forward to ownning this device.
    I missed phantom 5, won’t miss this.

    1. There will be a finger print scanner and a quad core processor according to rumor specs. We will update this post when we have more.

      1. Okay. Thanks a lot.

        But I have heard from an official source that Phantom 6 will have 10 cores.

        1. You are right Sir/Ma, it will be rocking X20 Deca core processor. The launch date is fast approaching and more specs are been leaked, this article will be updated till it’s officially launched.

          Perhaps, you can share your source with us?

      2. Is there screen curved

        1. How do you mean by curved?
          Dunno sha o. but I heard it is super slim.

  2. Phantom 6 and 6plus. Ha! Is Tecno in competition with iPhone?

    1. It may not be a fair comparison to iPhone flagship, but it is a step up. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. A combination of so much in one device looks like the price would come scary. I hope they don’t break the banks of many Nigerians with this game.

    1. LOL, Tecno is going premium. Isn’t that a good thing? The device in question will be launched in Dubai.

    2. The price of Phantom 6 plus should not be more than 100k
      This is just an estimation though…

    3. It was even the dollar price that made the tecno phantom to be that expensive. The qualifications on the phone makes it worth the specs.

  4. What’s the difference between Qualcomm and mediatec and what’s the advantages and disadvantages of one over the other

    1. Both are great chipset. However, Snapdragon is better in terms of multi tasking performance, it dissipate less heat and it is power efficiency. But it is expensive, it is mostly found on high end devices and difficult to root, change IMEI on device that uses it, unlock its boot loader etc. Qualcomm is the name of the company that produce Snapdragon chipset.

      Mediatek on the other hand is cheap, but got heat up quickly while multitasking because of multiple cores that it uses. Mediatek performance is also great and close to that of snapdragon, it power efficiency is average when compared to Snapdragon but great on MIUI roms and close to Snapdragon’s, it is easier to gain root access and change IMEI on them because they provide enough tools like vcom drivers, mtk droid tools etc. It is used on mid range and budgeted smartphones.

      Mediatek are tweaking their processor to address all the above issues and they might be better chipset than Snapdragon in coming years and at the same time cheaper.

      Thanks for stopping by Kassim.

    2. Mediatek will surely overtake Qualcomm very soon with their latest improvements.

  5. My name is Peter Gatugi Wong and i love tecno divices very much,i wish phantom 6 and phatom 6 plus will rage about 2800 and 3500 kshs respectively

  6. How much is the price of tecno phantom 6 plus in Ugandan shillings or USD?

    1. This is just a speculated price, the official price will be announced in less than three days. So stay tuned.

  7. I would love to upgrade from my C9 to phantom 6plus. However, I’m disappointed by the screen resolution of 980 by 1280 pixels for such a big screen. Images will not be as sharp as in my C9. Or what do think?

  8. Pls post the price of both phones as soon as it is released

    1. Sure thing Sam. The launch event is around 4PM Nigerian time, check back around that time for their prices.

  9. Something is terribly wrong with this write up. its practically impossible for two different devices with different screen size (6 inches and 5.5 inches) to both have 1920×1080 pixels and 420 PPI at the same time!
    Does anyone catch my drift?

  10. i went to slot and some other phone centres in lagos but im yet to see d phantom 6plus.as it not gotten to nigeria? n how much will it go for here in nigeria?

  11. pls, wat has been the experience of people usin phantom 6 as regards to the 2700mah battery. do any1 have an ideal?

  12. I wish i have that phantom6plus but it is quiet expensive,slot says 133k,jumia 90,550k,konga 100k

    1. I don’t think it is, the quality of the product compliments the price

  13. It is available in nigeria

  14. Hello, is it possible to come up with 5.5 screen display than 6.0. Display but withholding other specifications in techno phantom 6 plus. Because I fancy smaller and quality products.

    1. The tecno phantom 6 is really slim and will suit your preference for samller and quality products.

  15. The specs of this phone is realy exaustive. Tecno really took their time creating this phone.I like that they listened to customer feedback.

    1. You’re right about that. Tecno really took their time to create this masterpiece called the phantom 6

  16. Beautiful phone. I would really like to have it.

    1. We’ll all love to have the tecno phantom

      1. Yeah! The tecno phantom 6 is a great device, Tecno mobile really got it right with P6.

        Thanks for stopping by Tapp and nice review of the P6 on Nairaland.

    2. Yeah, everyone love to have a good thing

  17. I like that tecno has been consistent in churning out phones that are really good and suit the Nigerian market. They outdid themselves with this one.

    1. They really were too excellent

  18. What I am not understanding about Phantom 6 plus is how will the slot for SD and Sim card be fashioned to look the same?

    1. They are identical and the slots are seaprated. The tecno phantom is a magnificent piece.

    2. It’s cut out in such a way the sim tray has the shape of the SD etched in it. You would definitely see it.

    3. Yes they might look the same but they are well separated

  19. @NaijNaira

    If you have used latest MTK devices, you will agree with me that the overheating thing is now a thing of the past. These days it is about perception.

    1. True. Overheating is not an issue with tecno products again.

  20. I wanna buy phantom 6s or 6, but i don’t know how to i get this – Because iam from Bangladesh. So would you please help me to get it with brand new box.
    IF YOU HELP SOMEONE, ALLAH (GOD) WILL HELP YOU.

    1. Kindly use the contact US page, let’s figure a way out.

    2. lol, why dont you just try an online store

  21. I tried to connect my Phantom 6+ to my laptop, but it wasn’t visible to the computer. Is there a kind of HiOS app to download on my computer for compatibility?
    It’s going to be a lot of crap to spend this much and get that missed.
    Please, enlighten me.

    1. You don’t need any app. Try and connect it to another computer with differet Windows OS and see how that goes. If it works, then it has something to do with failed driver installation on your PC. Follow the step below.

      Right click on the start menu and click on device manager.

      Scroll to other devices and if you see any unknown device with yellow icon under it, right click on it and click on update device driver.

      Two options will come up, select the second that says browse my computer for driver software.

      Click on the link that says let me pick from a list of device drivers from my computer.

      Click on any option with USB icon.

      Select the third option (mtp USB device) from the new set of options that comes up.

      Wait for the driver to install and you are good.

    2. It is compatible, try using another pc

  22. lol, seeing all these specifications i thought the phantom 6plus was a myth, but then tecno came through with everything …..NICE

  23. The phantoms both turned out to be spectacular devices. All the hype surrounding their release is justified.

    1. Really justified, I love the phone

  24. This device is one of the best I have seen

  25. This device is truly a beast as it is called

    1. one of a kind, just few android phones come close

  26. This product is a masterclass

  27. please which is safer to get considering the price. p6 or p6plus

  28. the MIRAVISION settings is not written here, too many things to enjoy on this phone

  29. it should connect to ur laptop just fix the cable in the right port

  30. yea, the device is really good should be ranked among the best now

  31. The security in these phantoms are great. Nice one.

  32. Dear team.
    This ia a wonderful phone I really appreciate tecno and I m planing to buy also phantom 6plus but I want to know first that phantom 6plus have water proof or water resistant feature or no. And then one more thing is this phone have wireless charging feature.

    1. nope, that wireless charging feature is trash to be honest
