The Wannacry Ransomware Attack affected about 230,000 Windows PCs and requested that users pay to a bitcoin address to unlock their computers.

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 3

Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 4

The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.

Here are the following specifications from the teaser;

• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display

• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM

• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight

• 3500mAh battery
