Tecno is expanding its presence in the Asian market with new budget smartphone contenders. In fact, the company has been so confident that is even mocking Samsung and its designs. Today, the company has introduced a new smartphone dubbed Tecno Spark 8 Pro. The device is hitting Bangladesh and bringing compelling specifications. Unfortunately, we have the usual 4G combo that Infinix and Tecno tend to use – the Helio G85. Note that this isn’t a bad chipset, but is already old at this point when 5G is already becoming a standard.
TECNO SPARK 8 PRO
The Tecno Spark 8 Pro flaunts a 6.8-inch Full HD+ display. It’s large and the resolution is pretty much on par with the big part of the smartphones in the industry. As usual, it’s an LCD screen, the big problem is that only has a 60 Hz refresh rate. At this point, this screen refresh rate is becoming a characteristic of low-end smartphones. The device has a punch-hole cutout for the selfie snapper. It’s a nice touch for the design as most of the low-end devices are still coming with a waterdrop notch.
Under the hood, we have a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC paired with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of Internal Storage. This chip boasts two ARM Cortex-A75 cores clocked at up to 2.0 GHz plus six ARM Cortex-A55 clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. The handset also comes with Android 11 straight out of the box and a micro SD card slot for further memory expansion.
The Tecno Spark 8 draws its powers from a huge 5,000 mAh battery with support for 33 W fast-charging. In terms of optics, the device has a triple-camera setup with a 48 MP primary sensor with an f/1.79 aperture. The handset has a 2 MP camera and an AI lens. On the front side, the Tecno Spark 8 Pro sports an 8 MP selfie camera.
In terms of connectivity, the device offers dual SIM support, Wi-Fi, 4G, Bluetooth 5, GPS, OTG, FM radio, and a 3.5 mm audio jack. The handset draws its powers from a 5,000 mAh battery with 33 W fast charging.
