Tecno Mobile has launched the Phantom 8 series in Dubai.
Tecno decided to skip the Phantom 7 to keep pace with the likes of Samsung and Apple who have already launched their flagships – Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
The Phantom 8 was launched at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, on Sunday night.
It is a highly specked smartphone boasting 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage space. The Android-operated Phantom 8 is customised and is targeted at the upper middle class.

The Chinese mobile manufacturing company also seeks to sail through the European market through Dubai.
Arif Chowdhury, Vice President Transsion Holdings, was optimistic with what they have achieved in the Middle East in the past one year terming it significant.
