Foldable style smartphones are increasingly gaining prominence in the world, with their portability, multi-tasking capabilities, stylish designs, and unique user experience drawing the eye of more people.

At its recent global, new flagship product launch conference, TECNO unveiled its new fashionable foldable flagship, PHANTOM V Flip 5G. Positioning itself as a pioneer for super night photography, PHANTOM V Flip 5G boasts a 64-megapixel RGBW ultra-high-definition main camera and a 13-megapixel wide-angle camera. This device is also the world’s first foldable phone equipped with a front-facing flash on its 32-megapixel, ultra-high definition selfie camera. No matter whether you’re recording moments at a dimly-lit romantic dinner, during a party after sunset, or in another light-scarce scenario, the PHANTOM V Flip 5G makes capturing memories effortless.

A Premium Look and Feel

The look and feel of the PHANTOM V Flip 5G is also noteworthy, using repeatedly tested finger dimensional engineering design to create a better fitting grip and convenient one-handed operation. The leather finish of the cover adds a sophisticated touch, while the rounded edges of the hinge’s corners enhance the comfortable in-hand feel.

Top-tier tech at a wallet friendly price

Another standout feature of this device is its 6.9-inch FHD+ 2640×1080 ultra-large screen, with 120Hz refresh rate, that provides a highly interactive, immersive visual experience. A MediaTek Dimensity 8050 chipset powers the device, while power comes from a 4,000mAh battery complemented by 45W fast charging. 5G capabilities bring high-speed connectivity and faster upload and download speeds, while 8GB Random Access Memory (RAM) and 256GB Read-only Memory (ROM) round out the most important specs of the PHANTOM V Flip 5G.

Often pricing makes owning a foldable phone an unappealing option for most people. However, the PHANTOM V Flip 5G sticks to TECNO’s philosophy of bringing top-tier tech at an accessible price. A Forbes reviewer described this smartphone as “the most affordable clamshell foldable phone in the market by some distance” (referring to Asian markets), and this trend is bound to continue in other markets where the phone becomes available.

According to research firm International Data Corporation (IDC), global sales of foldable smartphones are estimated to grow by more than 50% this year. With its impressive features and specs, PHANTOM V Flip 5G will be a hot contender for people’s attention.


Despite not heading for South African shores just yet, you never know whether the PHANTOM V Flip 5G may make an appearance in the country in the future.

Other TECNO smartphones, including those from its latest SPARK 10 Series (SPARK 10 Pro, SPARK 10 5G, SPARK 10C), SPARK GO 2023, and POP 7, as well as various accessories and wearables are available from select retail partners, including Ackermans, Edgars, Game, Jet, Makro, Mr Price, TFG, and Vodacom (availability varies per retailer and per model and while stocks last).
