Tecno Phantom

Tecno Phantom is a Chinese smartphone brand that has been making waves in the African market with its innovative and affordable devices.

One of the key features that sets Tecno Phantom apart from its competitors is its use of artificial intelligence (AI) in its camera processing, especially in its foldable models, the Phantom V Flip and the Phantom V Fold.

The Phantom V Flip and the Phantom V Fold are among the few foldable smartphones available in the market, and they offer a unique experience for users who want to enjoy a larger screen size and a more immersive viewing experience. However, what makes these devices stand out, even more, is their camera performance, which is enhanced by AI algorithms.

The Phantom V Flip has a dual selfie camera that pops out from the top of the device when unfolded, consisting of a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. The Phantom V Fold has a triple rear camera setup that includes a 64-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Both devices also have a 32-megapixel front-facing camera that is hidden under the display when folded.

The AI capabilities of these cameras are impressive, as they can automatically detect the scene, adjust the exposure, white balance, and color, and apply various effects and filters to enhance the image quality.

The AI can also recognize faces, smiles, gestures, and poses, and optimize the focus, lighting, and beautification accordingly. Moreover, the AI can create realistic bokeh effects, blur the background, and highlight the subject, especially in portrait mode.

The AI cameras of the Phantom V Flip and the Phantom V Fold are not only good for taking photos but also for recording videos. The devices support 4K video recording at 30 or 60 frames per second, and 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second.

The AI can also enable features such as slow motion, time-lapse, and hyper-lapse, as well as edit videos with transitions, music, and stickers.
