Android 11 beta on TECNO Pouvoir 4 – The Android 11 beta launched in June, and while a full public release isn’t on the cards until the end of the year, many people can have an early look if they want. The beta is in version 1.5, which fixes Google Pay issues the first version had.
Android 11 is the upcoming eleventh major release and the 18th version of the Android mobile operating system, due for release in Q3 2020. Alphabetical release names, based on desserts for major Android versions, were discontinued as of Android 10; therefore the OS was immediately branded as “Android 11”. The logo for the release features a dial turned to 11— a reference to the music mockumentary film This Is Spinal Tap.
TECNO was one of the first non-Google companies to confirm that it would have TECNO Pouvoir 4 series in the Android 11 beta program. It has now officially rolled out the beta for the Pouvoir 4 and Pouvoir 4 Pro.
