From the stables of Tecno Mobile, we present this latest budget smartphone dubbed Tecno Pop 3. The android powered smartphone was released in December 2019 as an upgraded version of the Tecno Pop 2 launched in November 2018. Featured with a bigger ROM, reasonably larger storage, and comes at a friendly market price in Nigeria, Pop 3 is here to give Itel P33 a run for its money. But, before you rush to buy the device, kindly check out the features, specs, and the price in Jumia Nigeria.
Just like other smartphones in the Tecno Pop series, Pop 3 comes with a very nice and trendy design with a plastic body. The notch-less display device weighs about 167 grams with the fingerprint scanner neatly mounted at the back panel. The power button and the volume rockers are placed on the right side of the device.
In terms of display, Tecno Pop 3 comes with a stunning and wider display than the predecessor. The 5.7-inch IPS LCD Fullview screen offers a wider viewing area. With perfect screen ratio and clear resolution, you could browse more contents with less scrolling and have more fun with the new budget smartphone. The display offers 480 x 960 pixels of screen resolution and 229 pixels per inch (ppi) of screen density.
Camera and Battery
For optics, Tecno Pop 3 sports a single 5MP camera at the back with an LED flash placed under the camera sensor. Though the rear camera is not even close to being the best from the company, but you can still take clearer pictures with it. On the front, the budget smartphone adopts an 8MP AI Selfie Camera with Flash. Selfies taken by POP 3 would be clearer, brighter and more charming. Also, to ensure you get the best quality pictures, Pop 3 cameras are armed with 7 levels beauty mode that gives natural retouch to your pictures. No need to go to make-up artist, AI beauty mode does professional beautification for you.
As far as the battery is concerned, Tecno Pop 3 comes with a long-lasting 3500mAh battery that ensures you stay active and connected always. With the battery, you have more time to chat with friends, take selfies, play games, or browse websites as you like. But don’t expect it to last like Tecno Pop 2 Power with more higher battery capacity.
Under the hood, Tecno Pop 3 is equipped with a 1.3GHz Mediatek MT6580A quad-core CPU, along with Mali-400MP2, 1GB of RAM and a 16GB internal storage. One would have expected Pop 3 to feature a recent operating system like the Android 9 Pie, but sadly, we have Android 8.1 (Oreo; Go Edition) running on the device.
The smartphone features a 4G network, a smart fingerprint sensor that gives you multiple security and privacy protection after you record your fingerprint information and start the function. Not just that, Pop 3 also comes with Face Unlock 2.0 version that unlocks your phone speedily via “face scan”. With the newly added “Closed-Eyes Detection” on Face Unlock 2.0, you have less worry about an unauthorized person unlocking your phone when you are sleeping. The 2.0 version also offers screen fill-light in a dark environment, more quickly unlocked in low light scenarios.
