Boasting a unique design and a wealth of industry firsts, the PHANTOM X2 Pro is truly a one-of-a-kind product.

Moving on, let’s take a look at some more benchmarks set by the PHANTOM X2 Pro. It is the first smartphone ever to feature a retractable portrait lens. Not only does it attract onlookers, but it also serves the purpose of providing a purely visual and gorgeous bokeh effect. For comparison, most other smartphones rely on software trickery to present a clearly processed-looking selfie. With its ƒ/1.49 ultra-large aperture for its retractable telescopic lens, the PHANTOM X2 Pro makes subjects look stunning with a shallow, natural depth of field.

But it doesn’t end there, the 50MP ISOCELL 3.0 sensor encased in a 7P lens can take some snapshots, thanks to its extremely large 1.2μm pixel size. It also stays true to reality by offering full coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut along with 3D-Lut color grading technology and the 7th generation IMAGIQ 790 image signal processor. It’s a video champ too, thanks to Super Hybrid Image Stabilization technology that controls vibrations really intense, and Dual Video for a great vlogging experience along with an endless selection of video filters. Plus, you get HDR, video bokeh, 4K time-lapse, 960fps slow motion modes and more to satisfy the content creator in you. Moreover, you can also capture the most important moments in your life with the 32MP HDR Selfie Camera.

It also has the world’s first processor built on a 4nm process, MediaTek Dimensity 9000 5G. It’s a tried and tested SoC, capable of delivering consistent performance not only during everyday tasks, but also when heavy workloads are thrown at it, such as gaming, professional photography, videography, and AI applications. It is the first chipset to feature Cortex-X2 “Ultra-Core”, which is capable of providing instant response to any application on your smartphone. So whether it’s fun or work, you’ll always have energy on tap.

This is paired with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, which are both very fast by the way. But if you want more, no problem – you can extend the RAM to a total of 17GB using MemFusion 2.1 technology which allocates 5GB of UFS 3.1 as RAM.

To interact with all this high-powered hardware and industry-first camera system, you get a sprawling 6.8-inch curved AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. It refreshes at 120Hz to provide a smooth, immersive experience and packs an 8 + 2-bit color depth, with a wide DCI-P3 gamut for vibrant and accurate colours. What’s Next? It’s durable too, since it’s TUV SUD A rated for 36 months of smoothness, which means it’s guaranteed to keep smooth for at least three years! It’s also resistant to scratches and scrapes, thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

It also excels in providing long-lasting battery life thanks to its 5160mAh battery pack. It’s the largest in its class, promising a whopping 25 days of standby time and 23 hours of video playback. It only takes 20 minutes to charge half with the included 45W charger, enough to get you back up for a day.

The PHANTOM X2 Pro goes head to head with the iQOO 11, iQOO 11 Pro, and OnePlus 11 Pro, but it comes out as a winner in a few key areas. It offers a significant advantage in RAM capacity for unparalleled performance. The triple threat of its rear cameras gives it an uncompromising photographic edge. The 32MP selfie camera with dual flash ensures that you capture the finest facial details even in poor lighting. It has the largest battery capacity among its competitors and the larger screen size provides more immersion. More importantly, it offers unparalleled value for money too, priced at just Rs 49,990 for a premium, aesthetic, unique and powerful package.
