TECNO’s Spark series has always been popular, especially in the Kenya market. The devices compete with a ton of other budget offerings from the likes of Nokia, Infinix and itel, to mention a few.
The latest release from the series is here, named TECNO Spark 6. From the naming scheme, the device obviously succeeds the Spark 5, and it has some key upgrades in tow.
First, the Spark 6 has a large 6.8” screen now.
It is powered by an MTK G70 silicon.
It also has a better camera system, with a 16 MP main sensor.
Similar to other releases, the Spark 6 appears to have moved away from the notch fiasco with a selfie cam that is punched in the display. The feature, which was at one time limited to high-end devices, has now found its way to budget smartphones. Of course, the selfie snapper built into the display is an 8 MP sensor.
Speaking of the rear camera system, it is equipped with four sensors; the mentioned 16 MP main snapper, and three other 2 MP sensors for depth information, macro and the last for AI scenes.
The chipset is accompanied by other key specs: 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal space. These are very good numbers, bearing in mind that the Spark 6 is a budget offering.
The system keeps lights on with a 5000 mAh juicer.
Other features include Android 10 out of the box (we are certain TECNO will update this to Android 11 if history is anything to go by). The HiOS skin is also here.
The device will be available in the following colours: black, blue, purple and orange.
Kenya availability has not been mentioned, but we are confident the smartphone will make its way here soon. Pricing details have not been released, but we expect it to cost less than KES 15000.
