Tecno launched the cheapest book-style foldable phone in India earlier this year and it is back with another foldable today, called the Phantom V Flip 5G. Once again, it can be called the cheapest foldable in India, both in the foldable segment and the flip-style foldable space. Here’s what it has to offer.

The second cheapest foldable in India is the Motorola Razr 40, priced at Rs 59,999. It has a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 Chipset slightly inferior to MediaTek Dimensity 8050 in terms of on-paper specs.
