The newly-announced Tecno Spark 5 serves up the big numbers the phone official boasts a 6.6 screen with 90.2% screen-to-body ratio, a quad camera on the back with a quad LED flash, an octa-core processor with Android 10 and a 5,000mAh battery.
Keep in mind that this phone is on the very affordable side of things a pre-order in Ghana puts the price at GHS 720, which works out to $125/115. With that in mind, lets have a closer look at the specs.
The 6.6 display has 720 x 1,600px resolution and a punch hole for the 8MP selfie camera. Impressively, the front camera is joined by a dual LED flash single LEDs on the front are quite rare, two of them even more so. Were not sure that the 90.2% StB ratio is correct, but unless you care about number bragging, its not much of an issue.
The rear camera features a 13MP sensor in the main module with an f/1.8 aperture. This one is supported by a quad LED flash, also fairly rare. Next to those are a 2MP macro camera, a 2MP depth sensor… and a fourth camera. Honestly, the function of that one isnt made clear in the official specs, we think its just there to boost the camera count.
Anyway, the Tecno Spark 5 runs Android 10 with the HiOS 6.1 modification. It is powered by an octa-core CPU (chipset unknown) with only 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage. Theres a fingerprint reader on the back, next to the camera, but the front cam can be used for face unlock as well.
The phone has a 5,000mAh battery, though charging speed has not been specified so we assume its the standard 10W. On the connectivity side, theres 4G with VoLTE support and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Tecno Spark 5 will be available soon. There are four colors to choose from: Misty Grey, Vacation Blue, Ice Jadeite, Spark Orange. They all have a wavy grooved pattern on the back and a bit of a starburst gradient.
