Tecno Pop 6 has been released in Nepal. This is yet another budget offering from Tecno Mobiles.
Little is known about the company’s coverage in Nepal, but it has been regularly releasing smartphones here. Only a month ago, Tecno released two smartphones: Tecno Spark 8 and Tecno Pop 5 LTE.
Tecno Pop 6 provides basic features to the users. The phone comes with an elegant design irrespective of its price and performance. The phone has been mostly marketed for its battery power but does not provide anything different from the smartphones of the similar category.

Design and display
Most of the phones released these days are equally concerned about the designs of their smartphones no matter their price range. The fierce competition in every price segment has forced smartphone companies to work out every detail of their smartphones. Tecno Pop 6 also offers an elegant design with a glass front although it has a plastic body and plastic frame build. The back panel of the phone has a unique textured design, which looks different from any other smartphone of the same price category. The top of the back panel has been occupied by the camera panel, which also includes a fingerprint sensor.
The phone is 9.70mm thick while the exact weight of the phone has not been specified by the company yet. It is available in sea blue, lime green and sky blue colour options.
On the front of the Tecno Pop 6 is a 6.10 IPS LCD display, which is smaller compared to the other smartphone in the same segment. It offers a resolution of 720*1,560 pixels and 282 PPI density. The display has a waterdrop notch, which houses a camera sensor while the bottom part of the display has thick bezels compared to the rest of the body.
There is a very basic camera setup on Tecno Pop 6. The phone offers a dual camera setup on the back and a single selfie sensor on the front. The main 5MP camera on the back is housed with a QVGA sensor. Accompanying the cameras are dual LED flash, which resides just at the side of the sensors. Meanwhile, on the front is another 5MP sensor that has an LED flash.
Performance and storage
Tecno Pop 6 runs on HiOS based on Android 11. The phone is powered by a MediaTek chipset. At the moment, the phone is available only on a single variant of 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There is no mention of the expansion of either RAM or internal storage.
Battery life, connectivity and others
Tecno Pop 6 has a 5,000mAh non-removable li-po battery backup. The exact battery life of the phone has not been mentioned, but the phone offers a lot of battery-saving alternatives. The phone has features like super power saving, app optimisation, and smart power saving scenarios to prolong the battery life.
The phone supports dual sims with up to 4G network connectivity. It also has FM radio, GPS and Bluetooth. The phone uses a micro USB 2.0 cable, which means the phone does not support fast charging. For audio, there is a loudspeaker as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The price of Tecno Pop 6 is Rs 12,490.
