It is the first low-end mobile with a MediaTek processor compatible with Android 11.
Unless you are a true mobile phone patient, who knows the device catalogs of each and every one of the existing brands on the planet, it is very possible that the Techno Pouvoir 4 It was a totally unknown phone for you until now. But I’m afraid that will change today, as this unknown company – at least for the Spanish-speaking market – a company, a subsidiary of the Chinese firm Transsion, has decided bring the beta to Android 11 to one of the devices that make up its catalog, thus becoming the first company to offer the latest version of the operating system to a mobile of only 100 euros.
But that is not all. The work carried out by Tecno also makes it the first firm in adapt Android 11 Beta to work on a mobile based on a MediaTek platform, thus opening the way for the other firms to follow in their footsteps.
Tecno Pouvoir 4, a mobile of only 100 euros in which Android 11 can already be installed
Google released the official beta of Android 11 in mid-June for their Pixel devices, and little by little some companies decided to follow in their footsteps, offering the possibility of install Android 11 on other mobiles. However, they all had one thing in common: they were the reference models from the catalog of each of the companies, and they were not within everyone’s reach.
That is why it is so surprising that a “small” company like Tecno has been able to offer owners of one of their affordable devices the possibility of testing the latest news from Google’s operating system before the arrival of the stable edition, which is scheduled to launch in September. Hopefully, over the months, the Pouvoir 4 will receive the different beta versions of Android 11, before updating to the final version.
As explained on the portal XDA-Developers, the Tecno Pouvoir 4 is a lower-middle range terminal, based on the MediaTek Helio A22 platform. Interestingly, it is the same processor that the Tecno Spark 3 Pro, mobile of the brand that, last year, already participated in the beta program of Android 10, mounted.
The brand explains that some problems could arise derived from the instability of this version –in the end, it is still a beta–, and therefore its installation is not recommended in those devices used on a daily basis. Be that as it may, it is certainly appreciated that firms like Tecno work to offer good support to the owners of their devices, including the cheapest ones that make up their catalog.
