The Dimensity 810 has proven to be a capable SoC in terms of performance. While gaming may not be its forte, the Dimensity 810 should easily be able to handle daily usage performance without any issues.

The Pova Neo 5G comes with a dual rear camera setup that includes a 50MP rear camera and an lens (F2.0 aperture). At the front, you get a 32-megapixel sensor for selfies. Cameras on the Tecno Pova Neo 5G will have to be tested in real-time to pass a judgement about the same.

Further, it has 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB eMMC 5.1 internal storage. There is expandable memory up to 512GB and by a dedicated SD Card slot. 128GB of storage has become an ideal amount for even budget devices nowadays, and Tecno hasn’t given up on that. However, the RAM amount might be an issue considering Tecno’s HiOS 8.6 is quite heavily skinned and needs more resources to be kept in memory for smooth functioning. But we cannot confirm that until we see it for ourselves.

Lastly, the new Tecno phone packs a 6000mAh battery and has an in-box 18W flash charger which charges the phone to 50% in less than an hour. This makes the Pova Neo 5G a great choice for those people who want their phones to last longer than a day on a single charge, which the Pova Neo 5G definitely should.
