TECNO Pouvoir 3 Air Complete Specifications and Price

TECNO Pouvoir 3 Air

Like last year’s Pouvoir 2, TECNO has silently released a Pouvoir 3 Air after unveiling the Pouvoir 3, there are even rumours a Pouvoir 3 Pro is coming soon.

Pouvoir 3 Air provides another option with affordable budget for those who cannot afford the Pouvoir 3. The smartphone has a 6.0 FULL VIEW display and runs on the latest Android 9 Pie Go edition. It is powered by a 2.0GHz quad-core processor on a 1GB RAM with a 16GB internal memory. Like its big brother, it retains the powerful 5000mAh battery which is found on the Pouvoir 3 and is guaranteed to last up to 4 days.

Design and Display

The design is totally different from the Pouvoir 3, Unlike the former with thin bezels and a notch display, the Air goes back to the old TECNO designs with a 9.2mm visual thickness. It features a glossy back cover and is available in Midnight Black, Aqua Blue and Champagne Gold colours.

For the display, it features an IPS display with a 960*480 resolution on a 6.0” screen.

Hardware and Software

The device is powered by a 2.0GHz quad-core processor and a 1GB RAM. It has a modest 1GB RAM which should be enough since it runs on Android 9 Pie Go edition. Its internal memory is pegged at 16GB though, a little bit disappointing, but nothing an external SD Card could not solve.

Camera and Battery

If you want the best TECNO camera phones then you go for the Camon series. Pouvoir 3 Air features an AI beauty camera with 8MP front and 8MP rear with flash light.

One thing that wasn’t downgraded here is the battery capacity which is the same as the former, a 5000mAh. With this energy you can enjoy up to 4 days standby uninterrupted mobile performance. This comes with an impressive 22 hours of video playback and up to 43hrs of instant calling.

Network and Connectivity

Just like the Pouvoir 3, the Pouvoir 3 Air has a dual Nano-SIM cards slot, both supporting 4G LTE network at the same time. It offers Speedy Face ID Unlock and this new security technology lets you unlock your smartphone instantly. The Quick Fingerprint Sensor is another remarkable connectivity feature of this device, allowing you to unlock your smartphone with a touch, quickly and securely, within a fraction of seconds.

Tecno Pouvoir 3 Air features support for speaker and earphone modes and lets you listen to a variety of radio programs with rich loudspeaker sound. You can now enjoy your favorite radio stations without having to plug your earphone in the jack.
