TECNO Mobile now has a 5G phone, the Pova 5G, and like its cousins, it features amped-up specs and features.

The TECNO Pova 5G gets its modern connectivity feature from the MediaTek Dimensity 900 octa-core processor. It’s paired with a generous 8GB of RAM and fast 128GB UFS 3.1 storage.


This feature-packed smartphone also boasts an enormous 6.95-inch FHD+ IPS display with a fast 120Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate for responsiveness. There’s a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera with its own dual-LED flash.

The gigantic display is paired with an equally large 6,000mAh battery, so you can browse on 5G without running out of juice fast. Albeit, it only comes with a regular 18W fast charger. A full charge will take hours, but the company claims a quick 15-minute charge can already give 3 hours of gaming time.


Speaking of gaming, the device features what TECNO calls Panther Engine, which is essentially a software that optimizes the system for gaming.

On the back, we also have a sharp 50-megapixel main camera, joined by a 2-megapixel depth sensor and an AI lens. It also comes with a pill-shaped quad-LED flash.


The TECNO Pova 5G has a price of USD289 (around Php14,500). Availability details, especially in the Philippines, are yet to be announced.
