TECNO releases new range of smartphones in African market

Africa belongs to the fastest growing smartphone markets in the world. While the individual countries can differ massively in terms of online penetration (approx. 4% in Western Sahara, over 80% in Kenya), new publications and distributions such as TECNO’s new POVA series help to further develop the continent.

TECNO was founded in 2006 and has its headquarters in Shenzhen, China. Since 2008, Africa has been the company’s main market, and since 2010 TECNO is one of the three most successful cell phone brands there.



Smartphones are the main method of accessing the Internet and the POVA series is expected to spread this even further in Africa. It consists of two models in the price range below $200 with high-speed memory in the range of 128 + 6GB and 64 + 4GB each. Performance is delivered by the new Helio G80 gaming processor and a 6000 mAh Super Big Battery, with 18W Dual IC Flash Charger, which is said to provide 6.5 days of continuous music playback when fully charged.

Various trends in Africa are benefiting from this new technology, including the mobile banking boom, which has become even more relevant in light of the COVID-19 crisis.

For many products of the smartphone category, Radio Type Approval is necessary for release in African market.
