If you haven’t heard of TECNO, you’re not alone. This sub-brand of Transsion Holdings doesn’t sell phones in the US, so most folks here have never heard of it – despite it being the brand that brought us the CAMON 19 PRO (a color-changing Mondrian phone) last year, and the world’s most affordable large-format foldable back in the spring: the TECNO Phantom V Fold.

Not content to lay back in the cut, TECNO is kickin’ off the fall with another foldable: this time, a flip phone that’s weird, whimsical, and … what? Only $600?

This deserves a quick look under the hood – on Into The Fold!


This is the fourteenth in a series of episodes exploring the many facets of life on a folding screen. From the best foldable phones of 2023 to the bleeding-edge world of folding-screen laptops, “Into The Fold” is MrMobile’s showcase for the most exciting movement in mobile technology since 2007!

This episode of “Into The Fold” was made possible by a Phantom V Flip review sample provided by TECNO. Pre-production sample running pre-release software.
