New phone on the block: Tecno Pova
The Tecno Pova smartphone has not launched yet and is expected to be officially out on December 4 in India, as was confirmed via Flipkart. The price of the phone is being expected to be somewhere around Rs. 10,800. The phone is already available in certain markets including Nigeria and Philippines. For the expected price belonging to the budget segment of the smartphone market, the Tecno Pova comes loaded with a lot of pretty incredible specifications and integrated features. The phone comes in with a solid gaming processor, a massive battery with fast charging option as well as a strong RAM configuration. It is being speculated that there will be three colour variants of the smartphone that will be offered along with a sole RAM and storage configuration.
The Tecno Pova will be launched in India on December 4 at 12pm as per the dedicated Flipkart page. As of now, it is unclear if there will be a launch event for the phone. According to the Philippines website, the smartphone costs PHP 6,999 over there so that roughly converts to Rs. 10,800. The phone will most likely be priced under 11k and, if we are being too optimistic, it could also be under 10k. If that happens the competition will be well finished in that price segment. Also, the Tecno Nova is expected to be available in Magic Blue, Speed Purple, and Dazzle Black colour options.
