TECNO recently added a new smartphone-TECNO Pouvoir 3 Plus, under their Pourvoir line up which is kinda a new version of the TECNO Pourvoir 3 with some improvements in the specs department hence the “Plus” added to the name.
The Pourvoir line up has always been about “Power” or “Battery” and the TECNO Pourvoir 3 Plus aka TECNO LB8 packs a 6,000mAh battery.
It also has a 6.35-inch display, 3GB or 4GB of RAM with 32GB or 64GB of internal storage respectively and runs the latest Android 9.0. Let’s get to know more.

Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus Design And Display
Being a budget device, the back is made of plastic which has the triple rear camera on it along with an LED flash and a fingerprint sensor for biometric unlock.
Turning over to the front is the 6.35-inch HD+ IPS LCD display which uses the trendy 19:9 aspect ratio with a waterdrop notch up top to house the single front-facing camera.
Protecting the screen is an Asahi dragon tail glass. It also has a quite visible albeit small chin down at the bottom.
As expected and just like the TECNO Pourvoir 3, the new TECNO Pourvoir 3 Plus has a dual SIM card slot as well as a dedicated microSD card slot for additional storage. It weighs 209 and measures 9.17mm in thickness, mostly because of the hefty battery on the inside.
Colour options available for this device include Gold, Black and Blue.
TECNO Pouvoir 3 Plus Camera Review
Tecno Pourvoir 3 Plus comes with a total of four cameras which is pretty standard for a smartphone these days.
Tucked in the notch is the single selfie camera unit, which is an 8MP shooter with an f/2.2 aperture. The features include FaceID, HDR and AI face beauty.
It can also shoot 720p videos at 30fps. The remaining three cameras are placed at the back These comprise of a 13MP main camera, a secondary 5MP ultra wide-angle camera and lastly, a 2MP depth sensor camera for portrait mode shots.
Features of the rear camera include a Quad-LED flash, HDR, Panorama and Touch Focus. Just the front-facing camera, the rear camera can also shoot 720p videos at 30fps as well as being able to shoot 1080p videos at 30fps.
Software and Performance
Inside the device, is the Mediatek Helio P22 SoC which has an octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz paired with a PowerVR GE8320 for games/graphics. This is hooked up to either 3GB or 4GB of RAM with 32GB or 64GB of internal storage respectively.
As expected, it runs the latest Android 9.0 Pie out of the box which, of course, has the TECNO HiOS Skin slapped on top.
Battery and Connectivity
Tecno Pourvoir smartphones usually come with a 5,000mAh battery, however, this right here comes with a 6,000mAh battery which I guess is the reason for the Plus.
Unfortunately, there is no mention of fast charging support so juicing up is going to take quite some time.
Other features of the TECNO Pourvoir 3 Plus includes 4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, GPS, a 3.5mm jack and a microUSB port for charging and file transfer with also supports USB OTG.
