Android 11 Beta was quietly announced in June so that developers adapt their apps ahead of the official and stable launch in September.
Android 11 Beta usually goes to Google’s Pixel devices first before becoming available to other flagship smartphones from brands such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, Poco and OPPO.
TECNO is the latest company to begin rolling out its Android 11 Beta program to its budget device – the TECNO Pouvoir 4.
The TECNO Pouvoir 4 comes with Android 10 out of the box but you can now install Android 11 Beta 1 to get to experience Google’s latest mobile operating system.
It’s worth noting that Android 11 Beta 2 is already out.
Last year, TECNO Spark 3 was part of the Android Q beta program.
