TECNO POVA 3 to arrive in India on June 20
Chinese phone maker TECNO has announced that its POVA 3 smartphone will be launched in India on June 20. To recall, it broke cover in the Philippines last month. As for the highlights, the device flaunts a 90Hz LCD screen, a 50MP main rear camera, and a humongous 7,000mAh battery with fast-charging support. It also gets a MediaTek Helio G88 processor.
Why does this story matter?
- TECNO is aggressively expanding in the Indian market and the POVA 3 smartphone seems like a perfect device for it.
