Recently, Tecno Mobiles launched their latest budget offering which is the Tecno Pop 4. It is the successor to the Tecno Pop 3 from the previous year and comes with some slight upgrades over it. In this article, we’ll be discussing the Tecno Pop 4 specs and price. I’ll also be a quick review of the Tecno Pop 4. Without further ado, let’s get into Tecno Pop 4 specs, price, and review.
Upfront, you’re welcomed with a pretty standard 6 inches IPS LCD display. The display comes with the old 18:9 aspect which is no longer pleasing at this time. It comes in a plastic body which has a nice gradient design.
Tecno Pop 4 is powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT6580 which has a maximum clock speed of 1.3 GHz and is built on a 32nm power-sucking fab process. It comes with 2GB of RAM which is not bad for multitasking and 32GB of internal storage which is expandable using a micro SD card.
At the rear, you’d find the single-camera setup that features a 5MP camera paired with a LED flash below it. The rear camera can record 720p videos at 30 fps. At the front, there’s an 8MP camera for taking selfies and video calls. This selfie camera comes with a dedicated LED flash.
The Tecno Pop 4 comes with a huge 5,000 mAh battery. It doesn’t support fast charging so you’ll spend time charging it when it eventually runs down. Unfortunately, it does not support 4G LTE so you’re stuck with 3G and 2G. The 3G network is expected to open www.techfashy.com in no time.
This Tecno Pop 4 smartphone comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and Face Unlock for biometric security.
Olla V9 Pro price in Nigeria starts at 36,500 which is around $95 depending on your deal and location. It is available in all top online and offline stores across the country.
The Tecno Pop 4 is a pretty good phone for beginners but it is not the best value for money at its price. The cameras perform badly which is something expected as the paper specs were not great. The processor is old and is the same in the Tecno Pop 3 so the performance is bad. The battery life seems to be the only aspect this phone shines as it has a huge battery.
The detailed specifications and features of the Tecno Pop 4 are in the specs table.
