We found the rear design to be strikingly similar to the Poco M3, it’s halfway there, to say the least.
2021 is nearly over, but companies are still churning out phones as if the year just started. Tecno is one of those companies and they won’t stop coming and will not stop coming. Doesn’t make sense they don’t release phones as people’s heads get dumb but their brains get smart.
Anyway, the key features of the Spark Go 2022 include the “iconic design”. Yep, iconic alright as we’ve seen it on another company (hint hint: Poco M3). Other features mentioned include the fairly large battery, the 13mp camera, and DTS Audio. One thing they mentioned for audio is SoPlay 2.0 which users can use even without internet to remix their own tunes.
The phone runs on a watered-down version of Android 11 called Android 11 Go Edition. It is equipped with an unspecified quad-core (possibly a UNISOC or Helio A-series chip) processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There is a dual camera system comprising of a 13mp main camera and a secondary AI camera with unspecified information. There’s also an 8mp front camera with flash on a waterdrop notch. Confusingly, Tecno refers to it as a “dot notch” even when it isn’t.
The screen is quite typical for an ultra-budget phone. A 6.5in. IPS LCD with HD+ (720p) resolution at the ready. The phone has a 5000mAh battery charged on a MicroUSB port with no fast charging announced. Not surprising given the specs and price.
Oh, another feature announced for this is the “Super Boost System Optimization” that optimizes your phone based on your phone use behaviour.
It is now available in India for INR 7,499 (~Php 5.2K) for the 2/32 version. There is a single colour option: Turquoise Cyan.
