TECNO Pova Neo launched with 120Hz Display and 6000mAh Battery

TECNO has silently introduced the Pova Neo in the Kenyan market. The official retail price hasn’t been shared yet, but some vendors have it listed between KES 16,000 and KES 17,000. The main stand out features of the device are the 120Hz display and the 6000mAh battery with USB Type-C 18W fast charging.

The 6.8 inch display has a resolution of 720×1640. The 120Hz refresh rate is a rare feature to see at these prices and it is exciting to see companies push high-refresh rate displays to the budget segment.

The huge 6000mAh battery should push you for a long period of time. However, the Helio P22 feels dates for a 2021 phone. It would have been better to see a G-series processor.
