Tecno mobile has announced this week the release of their new phone, The Tecno Pouvoir 3!
Beautiful things have been happening to this company after it announced its smartphone market share for Q1 2019 in Nigeria and revealed the Transsion Holdings is now the leading Phone producer Nigeria.
Now with the pocket friendly Pouvoir 3, this number (I mean the market share) is sure to soar. Welcome to the preview and Unboxing of the smartphone, I am sure you are as excited as I am.
Like the name suggests, the Pouvoir Series (Pouvoir means power in French to signify the battery strength Tecno is offering) is about monstrous battery power and like its precedesors
Pouvoir 2 and Pouvoir 2 Pro, it boasts of a 5000mAh built in power, which Tecno says will last four days even when data is on. I don’t know about four days but I have used a 5000mAh phone before, the modest itel 1516 and I tell you this batteries are the bomb.
Pouvoir 3 has a 13MP rare camera aided by a dual toned LED flash. It’s also have a 13MP selfie Camera integrated with A.I features such as facial improvement and identification of the scene you are using.
It still runs on Android version 8. 1 (Oreo). (That’s pretty much a draw back, the new Infinix 7 runs on Android 9 (Pie)) but it still offers support for AR stock emoji.
Pouvoir 3 also have the normals for smart phones. Slots for two nano sims, a rare finger print scanner, Bluetooth connectivity and support for 4G LTE abilities. It hosts a it spots a 6.2-inch notched display screen, SoC with a Quad-core processor of 1.5GHz, a MediaTek MT6739, 2GB of RAM with 32GB of storage or ROM.

Tecno Pouvoir 3 comes in a small rectangular box with the picture of the smart phone on it. Some specs such as the 4LTE ability and the fact that it’s battery can last for four uninterrupted days.
On the back of the box more specs are shown and 9mobile offering data when you peel off their pin.
What you get As Accessories
Is the box with the smart phone are the following
Plastic protective case
USB cable and
Ejector Pin for pulling out the Pin tray
The one is lightweight and as you can see it’s covered with a glossy paper highlighting its specs.
The back of the phone has its finger print scanner and the dual camera.
How much is the Tecno Pouvoir 3. It’s about 42000-44000 Naira depending on which part of the country you are living. But this one you can see in the picture was gotten for 42500 naira on Jumia.
The phone is really beautiful and classic and it should come in handy for a typical Nigerian. The 13MP camera can take beautiful selfies and videos and it’s 4LTE should help with fast browsing.
The only draw back I see is it come also with a 2GB ROM much like the Pouvoir 2 and 2Pro. Perhaps Tecno are planning on releasing of a 3Pro version that could have a 3GB RAM. Well we have to keep our fingers crossed.
Well that’s it folks. Grab your copy soonest.
I remain Yours Truly
