It is also a bit more thicker and his available in a number of colours which includes black, blue champagne and green.

As for the display, the smartphone comes with just an HD resolution to get by which is standard and better than 480p screens of some other low budget smartphones. Diagonally the screen measures 5.5-inches, with 1280 X 730 pixels thus, a pixel density of 267 ppi.

Battery and Camera

The Chinese OEM, Tecno has decided to stick with the same battery capacity here, same as in the larger variant. This leaves the Tecno Pouvoir 1 with a similar long usage time of up to 2 days on normal minimal usage. There is a 5, 000mAh battery, which is on a high side and charges through a MicroUSB 2.0 port.

Also, there is 1GB internal memory on the smartphone alongside a 16GB built-in storage space with an option to extend up to 32GB with a memory card. However, the smartphone only runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with Tecno’s own UI to compliment.
