Tecno devices offer a lot of value for money. That’s such a cliche statement at this point but to be honest, Transsions’ devices have always done this. But times have changed and today, you’d be hard-pressed to find a bad device.

Similarly, the competition has since stepped up and today, anyone in the market for a relatively affordable device will have a plethora of devices from Nokia, Vivo, Realme, and many more to choose from. Needless to say, the competition is still and the only way to diversify is to keep offering various choices to the consumer.

So, what does this device have to offer? Well below is a summary of the device’s spec sheet.

  • 48MP AI Ultra Triple Camera
  • 6.6″Dot-in
  • 128GB ROM + 4GB RAM
  • Helio G85 Extreme Performance
  • 5000mAh, 18W Flash Charge
  • 8MP Front Camera with Dual Flash
  • 48MP Triple Rear Camera with Quad Flash
  • 90Hz HD+ Display
  • HiOS based on Android™ 11

Perhaps some of the standout features of this device include the massive 5000mAh battery. This, paired with the other power-sipping internals including the HD+ display means that this should be a solid contender for battery endurance, at least on paper.

The 90Hz display is also a nice touch, a feature that we have seen go mainstream this year with even entry-level devices coming with displays that have this higher refresh rate.
