Design, Display, and Cameras

Tecno Pova Neo 2 is more or less a budget smartphone with a big battery. So, while we are seeing some improvement over the previous generation model, the specs is still modest at best. However, it is still a good value for money.

It features an all plastic body available in three colors: Uranolite Gray, Virtual Blue, and Orange Magma with glass protection for the front.

Tecno Pova Neo 2 features a display that looks similar to its predecessor. However, Tecno is now indicating support for 90Hz refresh rate, which means this display can update faster for more seemless view of action movies as well as gaming with smooth transitions.

The 6.82-inch IPS display offers the same 720 x 1640 pixels resolution as the first generation Neo. A punch hole is provided on the top of the screen that houses the 8 megapixels selfie camera. Above it you will also see an LED flash for the front camera.

On the back, the android phone has two camera rings housing a 16 megapixels main camera and a yet to be specified second camera. Dual LED flash is provided for the rear camera. The fingerprint sensor moves from the front to the side.

Hardware and Software

Tecno Pova Neo LG6n runs Android 12 with HiOS 8.6 on a MediaTek MT6769Z Helio G85 (12nm) octa-core processor. The processor has two clusters consisting of a dual-core Cortex-A75 clocked at up to 2.0GHz and a hexa-core Cortex A55 up to 1.8GHz. Graphics is run by a Mali-G52 MC2.

This is the same chipset in other Tecno phones like the Spark 9 Pro, the Camon 19, and the Camon 19 Neo. This is also the chipset in the Infinix Hot 12.

The affordable android phone is available in three models, one more than the first generation. You get a model offering 4GB with 64GB built-in storage, another offering 4GB RAM with 128GB ROM, and finally one with 6GB RAM with 128GB built-in storage. You also get a dedicated slot for memory card enabling you add up to128GB additional storage.

Battery is perhaps the highlight of this device. With 7000 mAh battery capacity, this smartphone promises a good battery life and should be able to continue in the legacy of the Tecno Pova series. An 18W charging capacity also ensures you can regain depleted juice fast.

Connectivity

The 4G phone sports dual-SIM with 4G LTE support. You also get microUSB (USB 2.0) with Bluetooth 5.0. Wi-Fi (including dual-band Wi-Fi) is also supported.
