Tecno Phantom X2 is up for pre-order in India, sale starts Jan 9
Tecno unveiled the Phantom X2 series in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in the final weeks of last year. Now, the vanilla Phantom X2 has arrived in India, and it is already up for pre-order on Amazon in both colors – Stardust Gray and Moonlight Silver.
Indian customers can get the Phantom X2 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for INR 39,999, or around $485 or €455.
Tecno has proudly announced that the Phantom X2 is the first smartphone with Dimensity 9000 in India to cost less than INR 40,000. The SoC also features 5G, making the device future-proof when next-gen connectivity reaches a wider reach than the current experimental reach.
Arijeet Talapatra, CEO of Tecno Mobile India, said in a press release that the Phantom X2 aims to redefine the premium experience in an affordable way. It’s a smartphone “made for zillenials” who want to own an aesthetically pleasing device with cutting-edge technology.
When we reviewed the phone, we established that it stands out in looks. It also has a solid all-around camera experience and battery life and that’s in the context of its much higher price in the Middle East, which was the only known at the time. The phone offers much better value for money in India, where it costs almost half the price.
Pre-orders end on January 9, when the official sale begins. Tecno will also offer Phantom X2 in various offline stores. The first 100 people to pre-order the phone on Amazon and the first 200 to do so in physical locations will receive a free upgrade to Phantom X3 each time the new phone arrives.
