TECNO Pouvoir 1 is an affordable smartphone that was launched quietly by TECNO. From the name Pouvoir which is a French word that means power, the TECNO Pouvoir seems to be targeted at the French market.
The sleek device is very beautiful no doubt, coming with the vertical aligned rear camera and LED flash. TECNO has been releasing different devices tailored for different markets, recently the TECNO Pop1 was launched in Nigeria but we are not sure if the Pouvoir 1 will be available in Nigeria but has been launched in Senegal.
The highlight of the device is its power source, a massive 5000mAh battery. There’s also a small assistive button, the T-point 2.0 feature which has 8 key functions of the phone. Letting you switch between 8 Apps simultaneously. Without further ado, meet the TECNO Pouvoir 1.

Definitely, one of the best-looking budget smartphone from TECNO thus far, the Metal body looks like what we saw on the Camon X but even better. The dual curved antenna lines at the top and bottom corner is a killer.
The vertical aligned rear shooter and LED flash add to the beauty as well. It’s obvious the device doesn’t come with a fingerprint scanner which is a massive disappointment. But nonetheless, it measures 8.8mm in thickness and available in Dark Black, Spruce Green, Ice Blue and Amber Gold colours.
Offers a big screen just like the POP 1 and dishes out an impressive display as well for a budget device. Even though it houses three navigation buttons at the bottom bezel and the usual features at the top.
The narrow bezels are almost invisible, offering a much taller view in landscape mode. Focusing on the 5.5-inch HD IPS capacitive touchscreen now. The screen boasts of 1280 x 720 pixels in resolution and 267 pixels per inch density, making sure the details on the screen is clear enough.
HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
The MediaTek MT6580 chip works underneath effortlessly with 4-cores processor and 64-bit CPU architecture. The Quad-core processor here clocks at the usual 1.3GHz with 28nm process technology. The Mali-400 graphics processor handles everything graphics related.
Disappointingly, it has just 1GB of RAM for light multitasking and a memory speed of 533MHz as well. But there’s a bigger 16GB storage space to store files and apps. You can always upgrade up to 32GB using a memory card. The TECNO Pouvoir 1 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with HiOS skin.
For photography, you get an 8MP rear camera for all your photography needs. It’s obvious the camera comes with a dual-LED flash for night shots. At the top bezel, the 5MP selfie camera comes with a dedicated LED flash as well, so you won’t miss a selfie with friends at night.
The TECNO Pouvoir 1 is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 5000mAh battery with fast charging technology.
