The much-awaited Tecno Spark 5 has finally been available to Tecno fans all over Kenya. The smartphone is going to be going for around Ksh 13,800 in mobile stores and Tecno stores. The price may however vary from with the location and the store where you purchase the device.
The Tecno Spark 5 is meant to bring all the features that have been missing on all the previous spark series devices. The biggest improvement the Spark 5 brings to its predecessors is it’s 6.6 inches display and a bigger 5000 mAh battery.
Here are all the specifications of the Tecno Spark 5:
The phone will come with an IPS LCD 6.6 inches display with a screen display resolution of 720 x 1600 which leaves the display with a total pixel density of 266 PPI. Considering the Spark 5 is considered to be a budget smartphone, it is quite understandable why Tecno would not ship it with an AMOLED display or even a 1080 p display panel.
The Tecno Spark 5 runs on a Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 chipset. For the CPU, the Tecno Spark 5 utilizes an Octa-Core 2.0 GHz Cortex A53 which is coupled with a PowerVR GE8320. The chipset and the CPU are not the best you can see on a smartphone but we’re yet to see how it’s going to perform on the Spark 5.
The Tecno Spark 5 ships with 32 GB of internal storage which is actually good, but it comes with just 2 GB of RAM in an era where 2GB of anything is not enough. The phone also has a dedicated microSDXC slot in case you want to expand your storage.
At the rear, the phone sports a quad-camera setup + a QVGA sensor. The setup houses 13 MP main camera + 2 MP + 2 MP depth sensor. I don’t know if this is really an upgrade as the Tecno Spark 4 had a better combination than this as it included a 5 MP camera in its quad-camera setup.
At the front, the phone utilizes an 8 MP shooter which has a dual-LED flash for the late-night selfies and the camera can also shoot videos at 1080 p@30 fps but I’m not it’ll be that good considering the low-resolution display.
Spark 5 is powered by a Non-removable Li-po 5000 mAh battery which I’m not sure if it has any fast charging capability.
Fingerprint sensor(rear-mounted), proximity sensor, light sensor, and an accelerometer.
