A bigger screen for a bigger view, Tecno POP 1 offers a much bigger display than its siblings. Although it houses three navigation buttons at the bottom bezel, and the usual features at the top. It’s simply amazing how the company reduced the bezels to be this minimal.

The 5.5-inch QHD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen will display your movies and games pretty nicely. With a resolution of 960 x 480 pixels and 195 pixel per inch density, everything on the screen should be clear enough. The screen stretches up to 72% screen to body ratio as well.
