The Tecno Pova 2 will launch on Amazon India on August 2
The Tecno Camon 17 and 17 Pro arrived in India a couple of weeks ago, the Tecno Pova 2 will follow soon. Amazon India stepped up from teasers to a landing page for the phone and a concrete launch date – August 2 (next Monday). There is no sign of this model on Flipkart, even though the rival retailer offers the original Pova.
It’s also not clear how much the phone will cost, but we can make an educated guess – around INR 12,000-13,000. The original is currently down to INR 12,400 on Amazon (MSRP INR 14,000). The slightly more upscale (though broadly similar) Camon 17 is available at INR 13,000. In the Philippines (where the phone made its debut), the Pova 2 costs PHP 8,000, which converts to around INR 12,000.
Tecno Pova 2’s key features
Compared to its predecessor, the new model brings a number of improvements, including a larger 7,000 mAh battery (though still with only 18W charging support), a 48 MP camera (up from 13/16 MP), a slightly faster chipset (Helio G85) and a slightly larger display (6.9” IPS LCD).
Amazon India is currently running Prime Day deals, but those end tomorrow, so the Pova 2 will miss out on the discounts.
