UPDATE: Tecno has unveiled the Phantom 8 device and there was not Phantom 8 Plus, see full specifications and price of the Tecno Phantom 8 here.
Tecno Phantom 8 rumors and leaks are flying around and we’ve got a piece of what the device could look like in new leaked images and also confirmed some specs for the upcoming Phantom 8 phones.
Remember we first told you about the October 22nd launch for the new Tecno Phantom 8 Phones in Dubai, but before then, we spotted a Tecno device dubbed Tecno AX8 on geekbench with 6GB RAM. This happens to be the upcoming Tecno Phantom 8 device.
From the leaked pictures, Tecno Phantom 8 could be seen with what looks like a glass back with the fingerprint scanner sitting just below the dual back cameras. Tecno Phantom 8 Plus will likely have single back camera just as we saw in the Phantom 6 devices.
The Phantom 8 Plus is alleged to come with a whooping 20 megapixels camera at the front with a LED flash to complement, from the enormous teaser pictures from Tecno Mobile, its not hard to tell the Phantom 8 phones will be more camera focused that will probably do better than the already astounding Tecno Camon CX and Camon CX Air devices in terms of optics.
