Tecno usually follows a distinct approach to design, which sets its smartphones apart from the competition, for better or worse. The Pova 5 is no exception as it brings a design that the company calls Turbor Mecha. It is supposed to look like robot armor with all those lines on the back.

The design is not much different for the special Free Fire edition. It just gets a different color, some stickers, and a custom packaging box. There are probably some customized wallpapers and icons inside the phone.
