The POP 5 LTE has officially launched in South Africa as TECNO expands its entry-level device category.

The POP 5 LTE is premium smartphone brand TECNO Mobile’s latest offering in South Africa, available at major retailers including Jet, Edgars, Mr Price as well as Foschini Group Stores. Following only a few weeks after the launch of the SPARK 8C, the device retails for R2299.

Equipped with a long-lasting 5000mAh battery, the smartphone runs on the Android 11 Go Edition operating system and boasts dual sim capacity, which allows users to switch between two different mobile networks on the same device.

The POP 5 LTE has a 5MP front camera, 8MP dual rear camera with artificial intelligence technology as well as a 6.52” HD Dot-Notch display screen which ensures an immersive screen experience.

The device also comes with a 64GB internal storage capacity and a 2GB memory capacity – which may be extended by installing a micro SD card.

That’s not all. The POP 5 LTE has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, making it a handy on-the-go tool.

In South Africa, the device is available in two colours; Turquoise Cyan and Ice Blue.

“We are quite excited to introduce a device that combines functionality and accessibility which caters to many users. This device meets the demand for what the market demands,” Zikona Captain, PR Manager for TECNO South Africa.

As part of the launch, TECNO is going live with a spin-and-win competition on TECNO South Africa’s social media platforms, where people will stand a chance to win various prizes weekly.
