Photo Announcement. Tecno Pop 7 Pro - African budget smartphone

In yellow hot Africa (in its central part), somehow, out of schedule, a misfortune happened on sale, a smartphone Tecno Pop 7 Pro was found. In Nigeria, in Uganda. Maybe it's for sale somewhere else. But there has been no official announcement yet. There were only announcements of the upcoming announcement.

As it usually happens in such cases, the mess is terrible. But, because people already have a smartphone in their hands and there are photos of both the device itself and its box, then conclusions can already be drawn. And the conclusions are simple. Before us is a copy of a smartphone that appeared recently in India�� Tecno Spark Go 2023. Accurate to colors and dimensions. The only question is the amount of memory. In India, there is a variant of 4+64 GB. And in Africa, at best, I see 3 + 64 GB. Although 4 + 64 GB, it seems, is also promised. But this is inaccurate.

The chipset is a modest, quad-core MediaTek Helio A22. Those. in AnTuTu we are waiting for a hundred thousand points at best. (In some places they write about Helio A25, but do not believe it, A25 has eight cores, and on the box from Tecno Pop 7 Pro in blue white is written about four cores).

Screen. Either 6.56", or 6.6" (103 cm²). Resolution 720x1612, 269 ppi. About frequencyThe updates are standard 60 Hz, but the sensor polling rate is higher - 120 Hz.

Memory. There is definitely a variety of 3 + 64 GB. Somewhere 2 + 64 GB is mentioned. Mentions of 4 + 64 GB are also found, but so far, I repeat, I don’t see such a version for sale.

The battery is good - 5000 mAh. Of course, there is no accelerated charging.

The set of cameras is the simplest. 5 MP front, 13+0.08 MP rear.

Modern USB - Type-C. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back. About Wi-Fi ranges is not very clear yet. I hope there is still dual-band Wi-Fi 5.

NFC-module is not promised.

RecommendedThis retail price in Nigeria is ₦64000 (₽9780, $141) for the 3+64 GB version. In reality, the price is now slightly higher, around ₦67000 (₽10200, $147).
