Tecno Mobile Finally launched yet another flagship brand this year, the Tecno Phantom 8. The Phantom 8 was launched in Dubai on the 22nd October 2017
TECNO Mobile has come of age and has greatly evolved in the smartphone business.In 2016, TECNO chose Dubai as the venue for the launch of the Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus and this time around, the same location was best suited for yet another big announcement.
Pundits claim that TECNO decided to skip the Phantom 7 to keep up with Samsung and Apple who have already launched their flagships-Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. However that is only something we can assume.
