At long last, the TECNO POVA 5 Pro has been finally announced months after the vanilla version came out. It offers a more advanced design, a powerful processor, and faster charging.

The new TECNO POVA 5 Pro has a similar Mecha design that its sibling has, only now, it’s being lit up by RGB lights. It lights up when you receive notifications, gaming, and as a battery indicator.


From the 4G-only Helio G99 of the POVA 5, the new POVA 5 Pro now comes with a MediaTek 6080 processor clocked at up to 2.2GHz and has a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, which also offers better gaming.

It’s attached to a large 2,820mm² vapor chamber with a 12,979mm² heat dissipation area that said can drop the temps by 2°C when gaming. TECNO paired it with 8GB of RAM + 8GB virtual RAM and 256GB of storage.


Sadly, it has a smaller 5,000mAh battery. But on the upside, it comes with a much faster 68W Ultra Charging that can up the juice to 50% in just 15 minutes, with a full charge only taking 45 minutes. Bypass charging is also here that can draw power directly from the charger when gaming to keep the battery healthy.

On the back, there’s a 50-megapixel primary camera joined by a depth sensor. A 16-megapixel selfie camera is on the front, paired with its own LED flash.


The TECNO POVA 5 Pro has a price of IDR2,949,000 (~Php10,900) in Indonesia. Availability details in the Philippines are yet to be known.
