The Tecno Pova 2 was unveiled in Philippines on 2nd June, 2021 – a self-proclaimed budget gaming phone with a huge battery capacity of 7,000 and a PHP 8,000 price tag ($167/€137). That’s 1,000 mAh battery capacity more than the original Pova, and of course, the upgrades do not end there.¹
For starters, the large 6.9” screen has 1080p+ resolution (20.5:9), a major re-designed over the 6.8” 720p+ screen of its predecessor. Likewise, the touch sampling rate is increased to 180Hz for faster response times (refresh rate is still 60Hz).

The Tecno Pova 2 comes with a slightly more powerful chipset, a Helio G85. This 12nm chip has two Cortex-A75 cores and a Mali G52 MC2 GPU. Compared to the G80 chip of its predecessor, this one runs its GPU at a slightly higher clock, though not nearly enough to offset the fact that it has to push twice as numerous pixels.
Also on the additional side, you get more awesome memory as standard, with 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM and a dedicated spot for a MicroSD card if you need more storage. The smartphone comes with Android 11 out of the box (technically with HiOS 7.6).
Tecno is also bragging about the optimizations in the ET Game Engine and Game Space 2.0 that can boost the CPU and GPU as needed. The systems are designed with the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang MOBA game in mind.
The 7,000 mAh battery capacity will endure even long gaming sessions, charging remains at 18W (as its predecessor). At least Tecno switch the USB port to Type-C. And it’s a dual SIM phone with 4G VoLTE and a 5.0 Bluetooth as well as an FM radio receiver.
The rear camera on the smartphone was upgraded with a 48MP main sensor (up from 13MP) with an aperture of f/1.8. There are three 2MP helper modules on the rear too. 8MP sensor as the selfie camera packs.
The Tecno Pova 2 will go on pre-order on 5th June and sales start on 11th June. It will be available through several online retailers in the Philippines like: Shopee, Lazada, Memo Express and Kimstore. Note that each retailer offers its own pre-order perks.
