Tecno has quietly announced the latest members of its gaming-focused Pova lineup of smartphones. The newly announced Pova Neo 3 is the successor to last year’s Pova Neo 2. The phone is now part of the brand’s official listing without any official teaser or announcement. In this article, we will discuss the essential details of Tecno Pova Neo 3, covering its features, availability, and expected price in Nepal.

Tecno Pova Neo 3 Overview:
