Tecno is a brand that is popular for its affordable midrange phones, especially in Africa and South Asia. And it has just launched its first 5G phone. The new Pova 5G features MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 chipset, alongside other interesting specs. In this article, we will be looking at the full specifications, features, expected price, and availability of Tecno Pova 5G in Nepal.

Tecno Pova 5G Overview

Design and Display

Tecno Pova 5G sports a 6.95″ IPS LCD panel with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s an FHD+ display with a pixel density of 480 PPI. There is a center-aligned punch-hole cutout for the 12MP selfie camera.

The rear panel of the phone sports a design similar to that of the Pova Neo. It has a reflective stripe going across the rectangular camera module.

Performance and Memory

Under the hood, the Pova 5G packs Dimensity 900. This mobile chip is built on a 6nm node and features an integrated 5G modem. Likewise, it consists of 2x Cortex-A78 (@2.4GHz) and 6x Cortex-A55 CPU cores (@2GHz).

Tecno has paired the chip with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage. Users also have the option to add 3GB of virtual RAM.


At the back, there is a 50MP primary camera, accompanied by a 2MP portrait camera, and a gimmicky AI lens. Like I mentioned earlier, there is a 12MP camera over on the front for selfies and video calls.
