TECNO Pop 2 offers low-light selfies on a budget

Posted by

TECNO POP 2 Android smartphone features a 5.5-inch FullView touchscreen display, a selfie camera with AI beautification, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, as well as a 2400mAh battery.

The 5.5 FullView display gives it a very nice look. Who says budget devices cannot look good? Minimal bezels are always welcome.

The Pop 2 runs Android 8.1 Go Edtion. That is a version of Android OS that is optimised to run better on entry-level hardware. So, even though it has only 1GB RAM, you can expect some improvement in performance when compared to competing devices that run regular Android OS.

And while there is only 8GB storage built into the TECNO Pop 2, you can add a memory card (up to 32GB in capacity) to enjoy more storage space.

The front camera has an 8 megapixels single lens, while at the back is a 5 megapixels single rear with LED flash. The front-facing 8-megapixel camera of the TECNO Pop 2 has AI assistance, especially for low-light photography, so your selfies “pop” out, says the manufacturer.

The rear camera has a 5-megapixel lens and dual LED flash.

As for network connectivity, all you get is 2G and 3G for voice calls and data. You have to look elsewhere if you are interested in 4G LTE support.
