Tecno Spark 8 launched with 5000mAh battery and Helio P22

Tales of Arise

Transsion Holdings is back to the headlines with another smartphone from its budget smartphone OEM Tecno. The brand has been releasing a multitude of smartphones lately, and today is introducing a new Tecno Spark 8 smartphone in India. The device is coming at a low pricing point and will offer a decent set of specs when you’re in the market for a low-end handset. As usual in this category, the device offers a waterdrop notch, a rear fingerprint scanner, and thick bezels. Tecno is trying to implement a unique identity with a pretty bold “STOP AT NOTHING” marketing tagline.

Tecno Spark 8 specifications

The Tecno Spark 8 clearly a smartphone that focuses in the entry-level segment. For instance, the device has a MediaTek Helio P22 SoC. This chipset is way behind what MediaTek is offering nowadays. It’s an Octa-Core SoC with the aging ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 2.0 GHz. It is aided by a PowerVR GE8320 GPU which a maximum clock speed of 650 MHz. The device is paired with just 2 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of Internal Storage. That is a really strange combination as we’re used to seeing at least 3 GB in devices with such an amount of storage. Therefore, the device is capable of storing many files, but the multi-tasking capabilities will be compromised. Anyway, the device has a micro SD card slot for further memory expansion by up to 256 GB.

The handset flaunts a 6.52-inch LCD screen with an HD+ resolution (1,400 x 720 pixels). According to the company, this panel offers a 120 Hz touch response rate, but this is touch-sampling and not a refresh rate. The device still has a common 60 Hz refresh rate if you care to know. The display has a waterdrop notch at the top that serves as a home for the 8 MP selfie snapper. This shooter should be enough for modest selfies and video calls. Moving around to the back, the smartphone feature two cameras – a 16 MP primary snapper, and an unspecified “AI module”. The rear camera supports 1080p video recording.

The Tecno Spark 8 draws its powers from a 5,000 mAh battery. Unfortunately, charging will be slow due to the micro USB port limitation. Other features include Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi Dual-Band, and the device run Android 11 Go, which should bring some relief for the low amount of RAM.

Pricing and Availability

The Tecno Spark 8 comes in a Green colorway and has a plastic body panel. It will go on sale across “all retail stores” in India from Wednesday, September 15.
