Tecno Pop 2 Pro Hardware and Software
At the centre of this device is a MediaTek MT6580 Chipset which has 4 cores clocked at 1.3GHz and Mali-400MP2 GPU. 1GB RAM takes care of running apps while the 16GB of Internal storage takes care of files. Of course, storage space is expandable up to 64GB via a MicroSD card. Tecno Pop 2 Pro runs Tecno’s own HiOS skin which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition.
Battery & Network Connectivity
A 3,050mAh powers this device with no word on fast charging. However, at this price point, fast charging is not to be expected. Other features like Bluetooth, Fingerprint Sensor, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, GPS and a microUSB port are all on board. However, there is no 4G LTE Connectivity.
