Tecno Mobile has just launched a new smartphone in India which is the Tecno Spark Go Plus. The Spark Go Plus is the successor of the Tecno Spark Go which was released last year in August. This new Spark Go Plus brings much higher specificications such as a 6.52inch HD+ display, 4,000mAh battery, the newer Tecno’s HIOS 5.5.2 custom OS and an 8MP selfie camera. For Africans, this is the kind of smartphone that usually changes moniker when it arrives.
It might arrive in Africa as Tecno Spark 4 Pro, who knows? This new smartphone from Tecno was created to target folks on a budget as usual. It is priced at INR 6,300 in India which roughly translates to N31,000 Naira in Nigeria or $88 in USD. The phone comes with a waterdrop notch cutout and the display houses a 6.52inches HD+ display which is a 720 x 1600 pixels.
With that huge display size, the smartphone manages to pull a 20:9 aspect ratio and with some big chin, it achieves a screen to body ratio of 89.5%. As with the usual midrange phones, this device screen can be bright outdoors up to 480nits. What is powering the phone is a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset which has a quad core processor clocked at 2.0GHz.
It runs on Android 9 pie with the latest HIOS 5.5 2 out of the box, paired with a 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. For photography, there is a single 8MP rear camera which is supported by a dual LED flash for taking better shots in low light situations. On the front, it has the same 8MP camera with a single led flash. The selfie led flash looks like the one we have seen on the Phantom 9 and Spark 4.
The Tecno Spark Go Plus price in Nigeria starts from N31,000 which converts to $88. Like i told you guys earlier, i don’t think that this phone will come in Nigeria with Spark Go Plus moniker, it might rather come in a totally different moniker, anyways, time will tell.
Note: This price listed here is what the smartphone is priced abroad and not in Nigeria. It might be priced at this amount if it arrives in Nigeria but there is a huge possibility that the price will change if it arrives in Nigeria.
