Tecno Pouvoir 4 Becomes First Mediatek Soc Smartphone To Receive Android 11 Beta
Africa’s biggest smartphone brand TECNO Mobile has released the Android 11 Beta 1 build for it lastest device TECNO Pouvoir 4. The phone which was launched earlier this month has become the first MediaTek SoC smartphone to receive the Android 11 Beta update.
TECNO Mobile also took part in the Android Q beta testing in 2019. Back then, they rolled out a pre-release build of Android 10 for the Spark 3 Powered MediaTek.
The brand provides a special firmware package for the Pouvoir 4 that utilizes the low-level download mode of the MediaTek chipset (equivalent to the EDL mode of Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs) for installing the beta build of Android 11. In case you want to revert back to stable Android 10, the rollback package needs to be installed in a similar manner.
The stable version of Android 11 is still months away, but Google has already finalized the relevant SDK, NDK APIs, and other components in the second beta of Android 11 that came out earlier this month.
