Tecno has unveiled its latest flagship devices, Tecno Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus. The two devices were launched at the Armani Hotel located in Burj Khalifa in Dubai on September 25th and Tecno will be unveiling them in Kenya on the 7th of October at the I&M Safaricom shop. This is the first time that the Phantom series will be available in Safaricom shops.

At the launch, Tecno also celebrated 10 years in business and also announced a partnership with Sony. The cameras in the new phones are by Sony.
