Overview

Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus is the latest smartphone from Tecno Mobility launched in August 2019. The device is the upgraded version of Pouvoir 3 announced back in May, 2019. But far more than your imaginations, the latest Pouvoir 3 Plus is far more than just an upgrade. It looks more like the Tecno Phantom 9, seeing the borrowed U-shaped notch display, which on it own, is an AMOLED unit.

Specification wise, the Pouvoir 3 Plus mounts a 6.35-inch AMOLED HD+ display with 720 x 1548 pixels resolution. It has a 19.5:9 ratio and protect by Asahi Glass. Under the hood, there is an Octa-core MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 CPU, clocked at 2.0GHz, along with PowerVR GE8320 GPU, a 3/4GB RAM and 32/64GB internal storage, expandable via microSD card.

Interestingly, the device packs a triple rear camera setup of 13-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel Wide-angle lense, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, couple with a quad LED flash. Upfront, Tecno made use of a single 13-megapixel sensor to cater for selfie needs.

What’s more? The device also comes with a rear placed fingerprint scanner and AI FaceID. There’s dual micro-SIMs with support for 4G LTE network on both SIMs. The device is powered by a 6000mAh battery, and runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Other key specifications of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus are detailed in the table below.

    • I know that the battery would be exclusive and powerful, full of motivation, I’m about to get mine next month in Jesus name Amen

  1. This phone is not available in any online market and even on techno site if you enter with Nigeria. So I don’t think this phone is available for sale

  2. I bought it on 18 August, and it is superb. The battery is strong and very fast phone. It cost me 45k at store in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

  3. MrDriod i’m your number one follower. More grease to your elbow for your awesome updates, do you have any social media handle?

  4. Where can I locate guest mode to hide apps from guest in my pouvoir cus friends wouldn’t stop intruding into my messages without my consent biko

  5. This phone is superb, i got mine yesterday since then the battery is still 52% i have been very busy with it yet the battery refuse to die. Am an intensive phine user and i would have drained 2 average phones by now, i think it doesn’t just boast of 6000amh but also somehow built to conserve battery. The speed is super out this world.

  6. Please, I really have few questions bothering me about this phone:
    1. Does this phone have 6GB RAM, 64GB ROM ?
    If yes, how much ?
    2. How much for the 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM ?
    3. Where can I actually get it in the East ?

  7. Please, someone should help out. The flashlight of the phone (pouvoir 3plus) off itself after some second, I don’t know why.

  8. I just bought my is now 50,000 I must confess I really enjoyed it once I charge it I dont have problem.it last me for some days before I will be talking of charging again.

  9. Comment: Mrdriod sir Im sure that by now the price much have reduced by now?? Like how much will it cost ne because by next month Im going to get mine

  10. Guys, I heard the tecno poivoir 3 plus have problem like hanging and that their bigger battery phones spoil faster, how true is this please?

  11. I saw the specification of tecno pouvoir 3 plus in another website that it comes with 6gb of ram and 64gb of internal storage .lf it is true please reply

    • I also have the same question. I did some research about tecno pouvoir 3 plus and some said it have 3gb/32gb and some said is 4gb/64 and 6/64 and I love this phone cause I prefer the one of 6/64 just for gaming. Please explain this for us MR droid

      • Sincerely, I also want to believe that the Pouvior 3 Plus with 6GB RAM exist. But sincerely, I’ve not seen one. There are two popular site that list the device with 6GB RAM, and that is gsmarena and gizmochina.
        We all know Tecno would usually list the higher specifications of it phones, hiding the specs of basic versions, but I have searched through almost all Tecno regional sites, from Africa, to Asia and even North America countries, but none of them list the pouvoir 3 plus with 6GB RAM.
        So I simply can’t update the specs because gsmarena says it has 6GB RAM.Remember, it has 3GB RAM version as well, but gsmarena said nothing about it.
        So I believe it a simple error by gsmarena that other sites are copying. Worst of all, I’ve not seen any reliable seller selling the 6GB RAM version yet.If you have the Pouvoir 3 Plus currently, you’ll know few other things are wrong with the specs on gsmarena and worse, gizmochina.
        Anyways, I’ll be looking around for a reliable doc. that confirms 6GB RAM, and I’ll update the specs

      • Thank you for the helpful explanation and that’s where I saw the phone specification on gsmarens but do you think 4 gb is enough for playing heavy games like PUBG mobile, or Alphalt 9 on the phone ? I think it’s just suitable for gaming

  12. Pls I need a phone at the range of N50,000 to N60,000 and I have decided to buy Tecno pouvoir 3 plus or Tecno spark 6
    I need more suggestions pls
