We Were Earlier Wrong – Partly!

We published an earlier piece on why the end of TECNO Phantom had come and there may be no Phantom 9. He was wrong on that, but he was right about the TECNO brand being positioned as the mid-tier brand within the Transsion Holdings ladder. The price of the Phantom 9 clearly reflects that (compare it to the price of Infinix Zero 6).
