Reports suggest that Tecno is diligently working on the sequel to its initial foray into the foldable arena, the Phantom V Fold. This exciting revelation is courtesy of a recent sighting in the IMEI database, unveiling the device's moniker as the Tecno Phantom V2 Fold, donning the model number AE10.

The database lacks the necessary details about the newcomer. However, it confirms the device’s existence as model number AE10. With the Phantom V2 Fold’s listing on IMEI, it is safe to assume that the official debut is near.  

While the specifics of the Phantom V2 Fold remain a well-guarded secret for now, we can draw insights from its predecessor. The original Phantom V Fold boasted a 7.85-inch AMOLED LPTO foldable display with a stellar 2K+ resolution, a snappy 120Hz refresh rate, and an expansive 8:7 aspect ratio.

Closing the new Tecno Fold mobile revealed a 6.42-inch AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio. Running on the Android 13 OS with the HiOS 13 Fold UI, the Phantom V Fold flexed a seamless and immersive user experience.

In the imaging department, the Phantom V Fold astounded with a 32-megapixel front-facing camera and a 16-megapixel camera nestled within its foldable screen. The rear camera setup didn't disappoint either, featuring a 50-megapixel primary camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 50-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom.

At its core lies a robust Dimensity 9000 Plus chipset, complemented by LPDDR5x RAM, up to 9 GB of virtual RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage. The device housed a reliable 5,000mAh battery with 45W fast charging support for longevity and quick top-ups. The Tecno Phantom V2 Fold will build upon these specifications to provide noteworthy upgrades.
