The world’s first portrait lens sets an incredible new standard
The PHANTOM X2 Pro 5G is the world’s first smartphone to feature a retractable portrait lens comparable to a professional camera.
The highlight of the PHANTOM X2 Pro 5G’s exceptional four cameras is the innovative retractable lens, a technological breakthrough that lowers the threshold for “studio-like” portrait photography. While its retractable nature ensures the phone remains slim and light, the 65mm lens, 2.5x optical zoom, large F1.49 aperture, and shallow 18.9cm depth of field create stunningly pure optical bokeh that is breathtaking.
It has also been featured in a series of photographs by professional photographer Rankin, whose portfolio ranges from portraiture to documentary.
He has photographed with the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner, and the Queen, to name a few. Rankin also consulted on the development of a set of “prime filters” for the PHANTOM X2 series. The innovative lens in the PHANTOM X2 Pro 5G reimagines what’s possible with a pocket-sized smartphone camera. The powerful 50MP Primary Camera with 1/1.3″ sensor and Super Night Mode enables stunning night photography.

The PHANTOM X2 5G also features amazing imaging capabilities, including a 64MP primary camera with an advanced RGBW sensor and a 5P+1G lens. In addition, the PHANTOM X2 series features a range of self-developed beauty settings to give users more freedom when shooting and editing.
Flagship back cover made from recycled materials
The PHANTOM X2 Series includes the PHANTOM X2 Pro 5G Eco-Friendly Edition. This special edition features our pioneering eco-friendly back cover created by recycling materials recovered from the ocean. Through a complex, multi-stage process, the waste is made into fine fibers that are then woven to form a strong, durable material that is used to create the cover.
The eco-friendly version has been nominated for and won prestigious international design awards, including the LOOP Design Awards, with a striking orange design that represents the stark landscape of the Red Planet and reminds us of the importance of caring for the Earth and its oceans.
In total, each Eco-Friendly Edition back cover contains 14.4% recycled materials. Compared to virgin plastic, using recycled materials to manufacture the back covers reduces carbon emissions by about 38%, with each body producing an estimated 2.4 grams of emissions on average. PHANTOM hopes its commitment to protecting the environment will encourage more consumers around the world to adopt sustainable lifestyles.
