The “Pro” sibling of the Tecno Pova 5 is now official with a more powerful chipset and an LED-lit back similar to the Nothing Phone (2). And the Pro model doubles down on its gaming aesthetics with even more gamer-centric features. So, let’s get right into the design, specs, features, and expected price in Nepal of the Tecno Pova 5 Pro.

Tecno Pova 5 Pro Overview:

Arc Interface

Tecno Pova 5 Pro shares a lot of its visual aesthetic with the vanilla Pova 5, but with the exception of the LED strip on its back. This “Arc Interface” — as Tecno calls it — is similar to the “Glyph Interface” on Nothing phones. However, instead of a single white backlight, it can glow in 9 different colors. And it’s useful for things like notifications, incoming calls, in-game actions, and more

The phone itself is relatively heavy at 220 grams and features a plastic build. There’s a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, while the Pova 5 Pro is available in “Dark Illusion” and “Silver Fantasy” color options. Tecno says the phone will also have a special “Free Fire Edition” which comes with a custom theme, specialized icons, Garena ringtones, stickers, and gift cards.

Up front, the Tecno Pova 5 Pro features a large 6.78-inch IPS LCD screen of FHD+ (2460 x 1080) resolution. This 120Hz panel has a pixel density of around 396 ppi and can hit 580 nits of peak brightness.

Performance and Memory

Under the hood, Tecno Pova 5 Pro is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 6080 5G chipset, which is just a rebranded Dimensity 810 by the way. This 6nm chip has a similar CPU cluster as Helio G99 but with a slightly overclocked Cortex-A76 CPU (2.4 > 2.2 GHz). And also a more powerful Mali-G57 MC2 GPU instead of the G52 MC2.

Moreover, Tecno Pova 5 Pro comes with 8GB of RAM which can be expanded to 16GB via virtual RAM. Alongside that, it comes with either 128 or 256GB of internal storage. In terms of software, it runs on Android 13 with Tecno’s HiOS 13 skin on top.

Gaming features

For a better gaming experience, Tecno has included a few special features in the Pova 5 Pro. One of them is called “Bypass Charge” which powers the phone directly from the charger instead of routing the power through the battery. Just like in gaming laptops, this feature allows the device to deliver stable frame rates without worrying about battery life. On the other hand, it also helps to maintain good battery health by reducing wear and tear on lithium cells.

There’s also a port monitoring feature that warns the user in case of potential damage to the charging port. Other than this, Tecno Pova 5 Pro gets a large 2,820mm² vapor chamber with a 12,979mm² heat dissipation area, which supposedly keeps the chipset up to 2°C cooler.

Camera and Extras

Tecno Pova 5 Pro sports a dual camera setup on its back with a primary 50MP shooter complemented by an AI lens. And the “Arc Interface” — paired with the LED flash — can also double as a secondary flashlight to brighten up your photos. On the front, you get a 16MP selfie shooter capable of recording up to 1080p 30 fps videos. Its “Dual View” video feature lets you record from both front and back cameras at the same time as well.

This gaming phone gets its juice from a massive 5,000 mAh battery which supports 68W fast charging. Tecno claims it can take the phone from 0-50% in just 15 minutes, while a full charge takes 45 minutes. Other than this, the Tecno Pova 5 pro features Hi-Res and DTS-certified stereo speakers alongside a Z-axis linear motor for tactile feedback. Wireless connectivity options include WiFi 5, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC.
