Software, Design, Display
The Tecno Spark 2 is a dual SIM Android device which has no support for 4G and runs on the lightweight version of Android Oreo — Oreo Go — with Tecno’s proprietary custom user interface — HiOS — slapped on top of it.
It’s a smartphone having ‘the 18 by 9 look’ with slim bezels up top and the at the bottom and a removable back cover made of plastic available for purchase in 4 distinct colors.
The display is a 6-inch 720 by 1440p IPS LCD panel having a pixel density of about 268 pixels per inch and no form of protective covering (like Gorilla glass) over it.
Performance, Hardware, Cameras
Under the Tecno Spark 2’s fine looking exterior sit the low-budget MediaTek MT6580 SoC which is a 1.3 GHz Quad-core CPU having graphics handled by the Mali 400 MP2 GPU and sporting just a gigabyte of RAM.
A 2GB RAM variant is also rumored to be hitting shelves pretty soon, but both variants — the 1GB and 2GB RAM variants — have just 16GB of onboard storage.
16GB which, as expected, can be extended by means of a microSD card which has its own dedicated slot on the device.
For snaps and self-shots, the Spark 2 sports an 8-megapixel lens supported by a dual LED flashlight in front while at the back sits a 13 MP lens with another Ring dual LED flash and autofocus support.
The battery providing all of the juice to keep the device running all day is a 3500 mAh Li-Ion battery having no internal support for fast charging.
Some other features featured by the device is …
- Face Unlock feature
- A fingerprint reader
