Hong Kong-based Transsion Holding’s sub-brand, Tecno launched its tripe-camera laced CAMON i4 in India in early April this year, which was then touted as the cheapest triple-camera smartphone in the Indian market with a price tag of INR9,599.
And today the company has taken the wraps off another handset dubbed as the Tecno Phantom 9 for the Indian market. The Tecno Phantom 9 also comes with AI triple-rear-camera setup along with a 32MP selfie camera compared to 16MP selfie shooter of the CAMON i4.
The Phantom 9 also makes use of a better Helio P35 SoC this time. AMOLED display, Dual LED flash up front, and in-display fingerprint scanner are other highlighting features of this device.

The phone supports dual SIM cards along with a dedicated SD card slot. The standard connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, Micro USB port, and 3.5mm audio jack. it tips the scales at 164 grams while measures 158.52×75.3×7.85mm in dimension.
