Tecno Pop 8 was launched globally in October this year with a Unisoc T606 SoC and a 5,000mAh battery. Now the company has teased the launch of the model in India. However, Tecno is yet to announce a date for the India launch of the budget smartphone. It hasn’t confirmed the price range either but the same had been tipped earlier. Several other leaks surrounding the handset have surfaced online. For example, a live image of the Tecno Pop 8 has surfaced online suggesting the AnTuTu score of the phone.
In a post on X, Tecno India shared a short promotional video teasing the India launch of the Tecno Pop 8. The company did not confirm a launch date in the teaser or in the post but said that it is “coming soon.”
Earlier this year, tipster Paras Guglani (@passionategeekz) claimed that the Indian variant of the Tecno Pop 8 will share similar processor, camera and OS specifications as the global variant. He added that the phone will be priced in the country at under Rs. 6,999.
Now, a 91Mobiles report has shared a live image of the Tecno Pop 8 that shows the AnTuTu score of the handset. With a score of 2,40,205, it is expected to be one of the fastest smartphones in the segment. The leak does not hint at any other details of the Indian variant of the model. More details will likely surface closer to the launch.
