The Tecno Phantom V Flip is one of the cheapest clamshell foldables around, following the release of the Motorola Razr 40 earlier this year. Eventually available in Europe, the handset will arrive first in India, where Tecno has priced it at INR 49,999 (~US$601).

Tecno has introduced the Phantom V Flip, arguably the second mid-range clamshell foldable after the Motorola Razr 40. Like Motorola's effort, Tecno has forgone a flagship chipset, which can be found in the Razr 40 Ultra (Razr+ in North America) and the Galaxy Z Flip5. Instead, the Phantom V Flip relies upon the Dimensity 8050, a 6 nm SoC powered by ARM Cortex-A78 and Cortex-A55 CPU cores that MediaTek has paired with a Mali-G77 GPU.

Arguably, the most striking element of the Phantom V Flip is its cover display, which Tecno surrounds with 64 MP primary and 13 MP ultra-wide-angle cameras. For reference, the small cover display measures 1.32-inches across and outputs at 466 x 466 pixels with 800 nits peak brightness. Meanwhile, a 6.9-inch display can be found on the device's inside that has a 1080p resolution with 1,000 nits peak brightness and a 120 Hz refresh rate.

Moreover, Tecno installs a 4,000 mAh battery that contributes to the device's 194 g weight, which the Phantom V Flip can recharge at up to 45 W. Currently, the Phantom V Flip is only available in India for INR 49,999 (~US$601) with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. However, the company also intends to offer the handset in Europe for €699 with the same storage combination.
