There’s always room for another ultra-affordable smartphone, or at least that’s what Tecno thought. The Transsion brand launched the Pop 5X device in Mexico with a quad-core CPU, Android 10 Go and a 4,000mAh battery.
At the front, we have a 6.5” HD screen with a 5MP selfie cam mounted on a waterdrop notch. Tecno does not reveal what the chipset is, but the phone is likely a rebranded iTel Vision 1Pro (another product by Transsion), and from its specs page we can see it is powered by a Unisoc SC9832E. The RAM is 2GB and storage is 32GB, but you can expand the latter with microSD cards.
On the back the Pop 5X has an 8MP main camera and two QVGA shooters of what we assume is limited utility. There’s also a physical fingerprint scanner next to the camera island.
The phone is selling for MXN2,000, or roughly $115. It is already available at some physical stores around the Latin American country.
