Display & Design
Both smartphones have a dewdrop notch design. The Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus has an AMOLED touchscreen unlike Camon 12 with an IPS LCD touchscreen. And, from experience, an AMOLED screen is far quality than IPS LCD because of its color accuracy and brilliant brightness.
However, in terms of sleekness, beautiful design, light-weighted, and big screen, the Tecno Camon 12 is better than the Pouvoir 3 Plus. No doubt, the heaviness of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus can easily be traced to its large battery capacity of 6000mAh.
Therefore, in terms of display and design, you will have to decide what to get and what to let go of. While Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus has the quality screen display because of its AMOLED Panel, Camon 12, on the other hand, has the designs which entail the sleekness, big screen, and lightweight.

Although the Same Chipset, Tecno Camon 12 is Still Better (Software & Hardware)
These two smartphones, Tecno Camon 12 and Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus are both running on Android 9.0 Pie. But sadly, none of these two recent phones will be upgrading to Android 10 Q later in the year.
However, in terms of speed performance, the Tecno Camon 12 is faster than the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus. Although both smartphones are using the Mediatek Helio P22 chipset (Octa-core 2.0). An average chipset for midranges.
Well, the reason the Tecno Camon 12 performs better is not far fetched. Unlike the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus with 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM, Tecno Camon 12 has a 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. Thus, the Camon 12 gives you larger storage and can manage more apps in memory than the Pouvoir 3 Plus. Moreover, you can also expand the storage on both smartphones with an external SD card if you want.
Thus, for the management of apps and swift performance, Tecno Camon 12 is better.
