Tecno Mobile have just released Google Android 11 Beta 1 update for owners of the vanilla Pouvoir 4. But, don’t get too excited yet;
- This update is for owners of the standard Pouvoir 4, and not the Pouvoir 4 Pro. Even though both phone has same 7-inches display, their internals are not same. Helio A22 on the standard Pouvoir 4 and Helio P22 on the Pro version.
- The update is only for ADVANCED USERS AND DEVELOPERS, who can easily roll back to Android 10 should any thing goes wrong.
At this point, if you don’t understand what the two points above means, then stop reading this post already.
Currently, Android 11 is till in pre-release (Beta) stage, and the stable version of the OS is still many miles away. But well-to-do phone makers like Google itself, OnePlus on the OnePlus 8-series, Xiaomi for it Mi 10-series, OPPO on the Find X2 Pro and now, Tecno Mobile with the Pouvoir 4, have join the pre-release bandwagon.
Interesting, and as a thumb up for Tecno, the Pouvoir 4 stands out in the list above, as the first Mediatek powered smartphone to officially taste the new Android 11 from Google. But this comes with a caveat. According to XDA Forum, the following are some limitations worth considering before heading on to the download page below:
» The release might experience problems with apps, stability, battery, or performance on the device.

» Some permissions managed through Settings may need to be set again after app re-installation or device reboot.
» The release contains some known platform-related issues such as performance and battery, access files in external storage, permissions.
» Some apps or icons may be obscured by the water drop screen.
