In keeping with its dedication to the “Made in India” initiative, the Chinese phone manufacturer TECNO today announced that production of the Phantom V Fold has started in India. It will be produced in TECNO’s Noida factory, which can produce 24 million phones annually
The company also disclosed that the Phantom V Fold will debut in India on April 11 and go on sale early on Amazon on April 12. In India, it will be available for INR77,777 ($945/€870/₱51,496.70), although this price is only valid for limited stock, it is still in a decent price-range.
The Phantom V Fold is TECNO’s first foldable smartphone, and it has the Dimensity 9000+ SoC with 12GB RAM and up to 512GB of storage. Its FullHD+ cover display measures 6.42″ diagonally, while the foldable screen has a 7.85″ diagonal with a 2,296×2,000-pixel resolution. Both are LTPO-type panels with a 120Hz screen refresh rate and 1,100 nits peak brightness.
The TECNO Phantom V Fold packs a 5,000 mAh battery with 45W charging support and comes with five cameras – three on the back (50MP primary + 50MP telephoto + 13MP ultrawide), one on the inside (16MP selfie), and one on the cover display (32MP selfie). However, the Phantom V Fold doesn’t feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. It has a side-mounted solution instead and even so, the foldable’s specs is nothing to scoff at.
