With one after another smartphone maker jumping into the foldable space, this category is becoming more captivating than ever before. Latest to join this bandwagon is Tecno with its first-ever foldable, the Phantom V Fold. Here we will walk through the detailed specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Tecno Phantom V Fold in Nepal.
Tecno Phantom V Fold Overview:
For starters, the Phantom lineup is home to Tecno’s flagship smartphones. Its recent release, the Tecno Phantom X2 Pro, featured a retractable portrait lens, a first for any smartphone. Now, the Phantom series is home to the company’s first foldable device.
The V Fold is a large slab with a 7.8-inch inner display. This is a 2K LTPO AMOLED panel with a variable refresh rate of 10 to 120Hz, 1100 nits of peak brightness, and 10-bit color depth. The cover screen is 6.4-inch AMOLED with Full HD resolution and most importantly, a pretty conventional aspect ratio of 21:9.
This gives Tecno’s foldable a much more practical form factor as opposed to Samsung’s candy-bar-shaped form. The outer display also has a 120Hz refresh rate.
Moreover, the phone folds completely flat with no crease in the center. The hinge is made of aerospace-grade material and is designed to withstand more than 200,000 folds. Not the best on the market, as Oppo promises over 400,000 folds in Find N2. Even so, it is comparable to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, which also promises over 200,000 folds. The smartphone is available in Black and White color options both of which offer a leather finish.

In charge of things inside is a Dimensity 9000+, making it the first foldable to use SoC from MediaTek. It’s a 4 nm-based mobile silicon with one high-performance Cortex-X2 (3.2GHz), three performance Cortex-A710 (2.85GHz), and four efficiency Cortex-A510 (1.80GHz) cores. Handling the graphics is a Mali G710 MC10 GPU.
Memory-wise, it has a single 12GB LPDDR5X RAM option paired with 256GB or 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. And it runs HiOS 13 Fold, which is Tecno’s take on software specifically designed for foldable devices. According to the brand, the new OS has over 2000 apps that have been optimized for the large screen.
Moving on to the cameras, the circular module on the back houses a 50MP, 1/1.3-inch main sensor with an f/1.9 aperture, a second 50MP, f/2.0 telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom, and a 13MP ultrawide lens. For selfies, the cover screen has a 32MP lens and the inner screen has a 16MP sensor. Like any other foldable, you can take selfies with the rear camera as well.
Moving on, the foldable gets its juice from a 5000mAh battery that supports 45W charging. The smartphone can go from 0-40% in just 15 minutes and can be fully charged in 55 minutes, says Tecno. There is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometrics. In addition, the phone has dual stereo speakers for audio.
