Tecno releases the Spark 8C, a budget phone

…that comes with a familiar design

Tecno has released the Spark 8C. There’s also a version of this budget phone in India, which carries 6GB RAM (which of course, the other 3GB RAM is virtual). According to Counterpoint Research, it’s the first in its segment.

However, the global version is another typical budget phone. It has a 6.6in. HD+ IPS LCD screen with 90Hz refresh rate. It has an unspecified processor, kinda like its cousin, the Infinix Smart 6. It is paired with 2 or 3GB RAM and runs Android 11 Go

Based on the design, it has a dual-camera setup, the one at the bottom is just text reading “AI”. The main camera is a 13mp and comes with a useless 2mp depth sensor for bokeh effects. There’s an 8mp selfie camera on top of the waterdrop notch

It has a rear fingerprint sensor and a 5000mAh Li-Po battery. Prices are yet to be announced, along with the processor.
