Some OEM ROMs offer such a functionality, most do not. You can check your device's settings, if there is such an entry. If there is none, then it is not possible. So, the answer to this question will be a yes and no together. It will depend on which smartphone you have.

You can certainly not achieve this with 3rd party apps.

  • Thank you. I have checked the smartphone's settings and have not found the option to schedule powering on the device. Are there custom-made Android ROMs which have greater functionality?
