Tecno phones are one of the popular smartphones in the African market. They are budget-oriented smartphones. Recently they have announced some affordable phones running on the latest Android 11 update. There are also some of their devices that will be getting the current Android 11 update. Sadly they don’t have a clear software update policy and this is why many are running away from Tecno phones.
However this year after they announced the latest Camon 17, they joined the Android 12 Beta Program. This Android 12 beta 1 program is already available for Tecno Camon 17. The beta build was released on May 19, 2021, through the Tecno Spot forum. To download and install it on your device, you will have to flash a package using the firmware package tool that utilizes the low-level download mode of the MediaTek chipset.
As a Bate program, you should also expect to see some bugs and major issues in the software and may encounter problems as well. However, you can always roll back to Android 11 OS using the same method. For now, the Android 12 is only available for the Tecno Camon 17 device. But still, there are other phones from Tecno we are expecting to get an Android 12 update.
