TECNO has updated its budget lineup with the launch of the Spark 10 series. TECNO Spark 10 series succeeds the Spark 9 series from last year and includes the regular Spark 10 and Spark 10 Pro. Spark 10C and Spark 10 5G also feature in the lineup.
The Spark 10 series brings a slew of upgrades over the Spark 9 series.
For cameras, the Spark 10 keeps the 50MP dual setup as its predecessor but they opt to make the LED flash have a bigger housing which makes the whole camera island look like it has a faux triple camera system design similar to what Apple does with its Pro series of iPhones.
TECNO Spark 10 gets to keep the same Helio G37 processor as the Spark 9 but the RAM increaseS from 4GB to 8GB with the option of using the expandable RAM feature that adds another 8GB of virtual RAM.
Spark 10 Pro gets the Helio G88 upgrade over the G85 from the Spark 9 Pro. Like the regular 10, the 10 Pro also gets 8GB of RAM and 8GB of virtual RAM. Storage starts at 128GB and 256GB for the regular and 10 Pro respectively with the option to expand using an external microSD up to 1TB.
The Spark 10 series supports dual 4G with dual slots next to the slot for expandable storage.
TECNO Spark 10 series ships with Android 13 baked in with HiOS 12.6 tagging along.
We get high refresh rate screens for both with the regular sporting 6.6″ 720p and the Pro has a 6.8″ 1080p display.
The regular 10 has a notch that houses the 8MP selfie camera while the Pro has a centred punch-hole 32MP selfie camera.
Both have 5000mAh batteries and support 18W fast Type-C charging.
For biometrics, we have face unlock and side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
TECNO Spark 10 and Spark 10 Pro come in Meta Black, Meta Blue, Meta White, Meta Green and Starry Black and Pearl White respectively.
