New Tecno flip phone will have completely different design

Tecno Phantom V Flip 2

The new Tecno flip phone will arrive with a completely different design. That was just confirmed by the FCC, as the phone was certified there. A sketch of the phone was shared as part of the process, hence the confirmation.

The upcoming flip phone from Tecno will offer a different design

The name of the device will likely be the Tecno Phantom V2 Flip. The first-gen model is called the Tecno Phantom V Flip. If you check out the image provided below, you’ll see the sketch of a new model, next to a render of the existing model.

Tecno Phantom V2 Flip FCC sketch

As you can see, the Tecno Phantom V2 Flip will have a rectangular cover display. That cover display will be considerably larger than the circular one on the first-gen model. In addition to that, the rear camera design will also be different.

Instead of a camera oreo on the back, the next-gen model will have two separate circles on the back for the phone’s two cameras. They will be vertically aligned, and placed in the top-left corner (from the perspective of an unfolded phone).

Its rear cameras will cut into the cover display, it seems

Those cameras will seemingly cut into the cover display on the back. Well, presumably that the bezels around the display won’t be extremely thick, which is not likely. We presume that the cutout on the back is reserved for the display, almost in its entirety.

This new design will make the phone look more similar to its competitors. It had a rather unique back design with the first-gen model. The FCC also revealed that a 4,490mAh battery will be in use here.

The Tecno Phantom V2 Flip will use a split battery setup. One battery will measure 3,310mAh, while the other 1,180mAh. That makes for a 4,490mAh battery capacity in total.

70W charging will be supported, and a 4,490mAh battery included

What about charging? Well, the phone will support 70W wired charging. The original model supports charging up to 45W, in case you’re wondering. This FCC listing also confirms that the phone will include 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. That will be at least one of its variants.

The phone also appeared on Geekbench not long ago, confirming that the MediaTek Dimensity 8050 SoC will be in use. The first-gen model arrived in September, though this one could arrive sooner than that… it remains to be seen.
