On the front is a 6.52-inch water drop notch, IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 720*1,600 pixels and 269 PPI density. This is a typical setting on any budget phone. While it may not provide an immersive viewing experience or impressive colour accuracy, it can be of great use for the ones who desire decent features at an affordable price.
Tecno POP 5 LTE features a dual AI camera on the back while there is a single sensor on the front. The back panel features one 8MP camera while there is no secondary camera. The cameras on the back are also accompanied by a dual flash. On the front is a 5MP selfie shooter.

Performance and storage

The phone is currently available in a single variant of 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Furthermore, the phone supports a microSD card, and the user can expand the storage through it.
Battery life, connectivity and others
Tecno POP 5 LTE features a massive 5,000 mAh non-removable li-po battery. Since the phone has minimal features in every category, power consumption should be low and with the given battery power on the phone, it should last for days under normal use. The battery on the phone can take some time to get fully charged as there is no fast charging system on the phone.
Tecno POP 5 LTE supports dual sim cards and up to 4G network connectivity. It supports GPS, OTG and FM radio. The phone also features Bluetooth connectivity for wireless pairing with another device while using a micro USB 2.0 cable for charging and wired pairing. For audio, it has a speaker as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The price of Tecno POP 5 LTE in Nepal is Rs 13,790 for the single 3/32GB variant.
