You would think that the next exciting feature on a smartphone would come from big companies like Apple, Samsung, or Xiaomi. But nope. The latest exciting news since folding phones and the under-display selfie cameras is from a brand you least expect or perhaps never ever even heard of.

TECNO PHANTOM X2 Series Smartphone

It is from TECNO and the device is PHANTOM X2 Pro. TECNO PHANTOM X2 Pro is a striking device with a large camera module containing three cameras, one of which commands attention with its orange trim, and for good reasons. This camera pops not just because of the color; it literally pops.

The TECNO PHANTOM X2 is the first smartphone in the world to feature a retractable portrait lens that is “comparable to a professional camera.” This particular camera unit boasts a 50 MP 1/1.3-inch sensor with a large f/1.49 aperture and a 65 mm focal length and a 2.5x optical zoom retractable portrait lens.

2.5x optical zoom is nothing to shout about but to see it materialized like an actual camera is pretty amazing. A shallow 18.9 cm depth of field further aid in creating a stunning pure optical bokeh, resulting in breathtaking portraitures.

In addition to this 50 MP pop-out camera, it also has another identical 50 MP camera paired with a wide-angle lens and a 13 MP ultra-wide angle snapper. Around the front, it gets a 32 MP “ultra-clear” selfie camera.

Under the hood, it benefits from a 4nm process MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chip, backed by LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 memories. A few other notable spec-sheet details include a 120 Hz 6.8-inch “Cinema-like Milk-smooth screen”, Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, 5,160 mAh battery, support for 45W Super Charge, 5G radios, and a beautiful unibody double-curved design, featuring “ergonomic golden grip angle” of 71-degree.

There are two designs to choose from. One of which is the world’s first 3.5D “Lunar Crater Dazzling Stained Glass” and the other is the original eco-friendly special edition featuring the world’s first renewable fiber back cover that contained over 50% recycled and 100% renewable materials derived from waste plastic bottles hauled from the Indian Ocean.

I know what you are thinking. How can it be 50% recycled and 100% renewable? But I think we all get the idea. I guess we just have to take the company’s word for it. Anyhoo, the Phantom X is the brand’s first high-end device. It is supposed to be available now but we can’t find it being sold anywhere.
