The glass protector includes as an accessory s very thick and seems like it will do its work perfectly. The surprise accessory is the addition of an 18 Watt dual voltage flash charger. The photo below was taken using the Tecno POVA’s macro lens.

The gyroscope addition to the list of sensors is very important. A gyro sensor might be the difference between an early death and winning the game.

A physical Google assistant button might not be a sensor but it s a good addition to the Tecno POVA.

Screen Recording

Like I always do, here is a screen recording video of the Tecno POVA so that you can see the preinstalled games, user interface as well as specifications.

I wish the screen was full HD screen. Since the screen resolution is 720X1640, all the screen recording videos are also in the same format. For example here is the full Among us game in the video above.

You can tell it has wider and shorter dimensions than the video above.

Price In Kenya

The phone price website lists the price of the Tecno POVA as Ksh14,500. This is an equivalent of USD133 according to current rates.

Tecno Mobile Kenya has not yet said how much the phone will go for.
