Tecno Phantom 6, according to sources, will have one of the fastest boot time which may take just about 35 seconds to boot to lock screen mode.


Tecno is the first company to have a mobile phone assembly plant in Africa with fully operational smart phone assembly plant.

It was set up in Africa creating much the need job and hi-tech skills transfer for youths. Tecno’s Ethiopian plant is an exemplary leadership stance in the African market.

Another expression of Tecno’s quality service delivery culture, to markets in Africa is the brand’s development of its Phantom series product line.

Known for their top end specifications upgrades, premium material design and craftsmanship, Tecno Phantom series are tailored to meet the refined taste of Africa’s elite consumer class; delivering pure luxury and return on investment to mobile users who prefer lifestyle smartphones.

The newest addition to the Phantom line-up will be the first to have two models the Phantom 6 and 6+ model which is something different from Tecno Mobile.
