TECNO just announced two new Spark series today, April 2nd, 2019 and they go by the name — TECNO Spark 3 and Spark 3 Pro (successors of last year’s TECNO Spark 2 and Spark 2 Pro).
The TECNO Spark 3 Pro is a bigger version of Spark 3 and comes has a total of three cameras, each with its own function. Furthermore, the Spark 3 Pro has a shiny plastic housing which denotes entry-level smartphone, a Super FULLVIEW screen and a solid 3500mAh battery that supports fast charging. The Spark 3 Pro runs on Android 9 Pie (HiOS 4.6)! It has everything you can expect from a budget phone and performs fairly well in the field of photography coupled with it’s AI feature!
Without further ado, join me as we explore all the features, full specifications and price of the newly launched TECNO Spark 3 Pro.
Features (Quick Review)!
TECNO has opted for a sharp 6.2-inch display with this Spark 3 Pro, similar to the newly launched Infinix Zero 6. The screen uses Super FULLVIEW technology with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels which is a slight upgrade to last year Spark 2 720 x 1440 pixel. It features an aspect ratio of 19: 9 (294 PPI) with a notch at the top for a perfect viewing experience! This device has the perfect screen for movies and low graphics games!
The LCD display is large, but the thin and rounded edges make the TECNO Spark 3 Pro very pleasant to hold. Both the front and back consist of a shiny plastic covering, this material feels and looks very economic.
On the back of TECNO Spark 3 Pro, you will find dual cameras vertically welded to the left side of the back, this includes the 13 + 2-megapixel cameras that capture every detail. However, the Spark 3 Go Edition of this product comes with a single rear camera of 8 megapixels. The front comes with an 8MP camera. There is also a single LED flash as well.
The device uses a fingerprint scanner which is a safer alternative to patterns and passwords. This sensor is placed at the back of the device.
TECNO has equipped the Spark 3 with a stronger Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 SoC which also a Quad-Core Processor but clocked higher with 2GHz and IMG PowerVR GPU. This is a considerably better chip than its other sibling.
Moving on to the battery capacity, you don’t have to worry about the Spark 3 Pro running down quickly. The phone has a 3500mAh battery (with fast charging support) that you can easily power all day, and maybe two! (Check out phones with 5000mAh battery capacity).
This TECNO Spark 3 Pro device has 2GB RAM with internal storage variants of 32GB. This is already a considerable amount where you can store a modest amount of photos, apps and music… Are you still short? Then you can easily expand the capacity by inserting a memory card up to 64GB in your device!
Another striking feature is the availability of 4G LTE on the TECNO Spark 3 Pro. Sadly, it’s unavailable on the Spark 3 (Go Edition) variant.
Finally, TECNO delivers the TECNO Spark 3 with Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box. TECNO does make a number of changes, thus making available the latest HiOS launcher on this device. This gives you a real TECNO interface with accompanying icons and apps.
