TECNO Mobile released another outstanding camera-centric smartphone called the TECNO SPARK 2. This device which is the second version from the TECNO SPARK series fuses the computing ability of a high-end smartphone with top-of-the-line user experience of the latest Google Android™ Oreo™ System (Go edition).
This was unveiled at a Channel Launch and Stakeholders Meeting held simultaneously in Accra and Kumasi on the 14th June 2018 at the Paloma Hotel in Accra and Golden Beam Hotel in Kumasi. This was done alongside the introduction of the Pouvoir 1 and 2 in the country.
last years Spark looked good, but this year with the 18:9 aspect ratio and minimal bezels, these look even more premium.The Spark 2 comes in two variants: one with 1GB RAM, the other with 2GB RAM. Both have 16GB internal storage and both have the same specs in other aspects.
“We at TECNO Mobile are proud to say that, this is another great smartphone; this next generation device is designed for productivity and style. For those of you who may have experienced the SPARK and SPARK Pro and who by now have an understanding of the fusion of brightened camera and smartphone elegance will comprehend what I am talking about. This is not just another camera phone, but one that any smartphone lover with the desire to stay in tune with the latest smartphone innovations, should have.” Stephen HA, Managing Director and General Manager of TECNO Mobile reiterated.
Display size is 6.0 inches with a 1440x720p resolution, and the body is really thin at just 5.7mm. Which I am sure is something most people will love about the device: that it looks good and is really thin.
But the thinness hasn’t compromised the battery size as the devices pack a 3500mAh battery inside. This year’s Spark 2 runs Android Oreo (Go Edition) means the issues people had last year with lags and performance drops shouldn’t be expected as Android Go is made for low spec phones to make the experience smoother.There’s a 13MP back camera with 3 LEDs for back flash and an 8MP front camera with dual LED flash. The front camera will be the one used for Face Unlock which is now the trend with Tecno phones.
