Mister Mobility Was Wrong!

Mister Mobility published an earlier piece on why the end of TECNO Phantom had come and there would be no Phantom 9. He was wrong, but it makes for interesting read anyway. Below is his full article.

The last Phantom smartphone from TECNO Mobile was launched in late 2017. There was a lot of excitement and anticipation for a TECNO Phantom 9 last year. In fact, several tech sites had released “leaked” specs and videos of the phone. But it never happened. And so 2018 rolled away without any announcement or details about this from TECNO Mobile.

2019 is well under way and there is still no word about the TECNO Phantom 9 despite all the supposed leaked specs. Of course, TECNO fans and followers are starting to ask questions about the company’s plans for the Phantom smartphone range. What mobile manufacturer abandons its flagship model abruptly like that?

I have a theory about what may be happening, and I will let you in on it.
