Chinese smartphone maker Tecno has launched its first gaming-centric smartphone in Nigeria and the Philippines. The device is dubbed as the Tecno POVA and is a mid-range offering. It packs some decent specifications for its price.
Some of the highlights of the Tecno POVA include a punch-hole display, quad-cameras, gradient design, Helio G80 processor and a bigger battery. Let’s find out what the smartphone offers out of the box.
