Tecno POVA 3 now official; rocks 7000mAh battery with Helio G88 CPU


The long awaited Tecno POVA 3 smartphone is now official. It is coming as the direct successor to the POVA 2 of last year, rocking a 7000mAh battery and MediaTek’s Helio G88 octa-core CPU. As far as physical looks are concern, the phone’s frontal design is not much of a difference from its predecessor. But where the notable alterations are, is on the rear, especially the Electric Blue color options.


Talking about colors, the POVA 3 is painted in three colors. There is the Tech Silver, ECO Black and Electric Blue color. These Electric Blue has a strap of LED Power lights on it rear, that changes color depending what mode the POVA 3 is being used.

The POVA 3 is a mid-range gaming smartphone, and since it is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G88 CPU, Tecno did include a built-in Graphene cooling system for proper heat dissipation.


The device also features a dual DTS speakers with stereo sound effects, and Z-Axis Linear Motor for improved media feedback and trackbacks.

The phone is available in either 4GB RAM with 64GB ROM, or 6GB RAM with a 128-Gigs of ROM. It is 9.44mm thick, and within these body, you are getting a large 7000mAh battery, the same battery capacity used on the POVA 2.

Although, the battery will charger a little fast now. Tecno did include a faster 33W charger. So no more slow charging. Recall that the POVA 2 only has 18W charger.


Also, the 6.9-inches screen on the POVA 3 is now given 90Hz refresh rating, which was absent on the previous model. The panel is still IPS, with 1080 x 2460 pixels. It has a dot-notch housing the frontal 8-megapixel selfie lens.

On the rear, three camera sensors are used. These includes a 50-megapixel primary sensor, 2MP depth and a third QVGA AI sensor, along with four LED flashes. The phone support dual 4G-SIMs, has a side-mounted biometrics scanner, and boot Google Android 11 out of the box.

The Tecno POVA 3 is already on sales in the Philippines via Lazada, and it is priced differently. The Tech Silver and ECO Black colors starts at PHP. 8999, while the Electric Blue color with a rear LED flash is priced from PHP. 9,399. Other regional available should follow shortly.
