- Display: 6.2 inches, IPS LCD Touchscreen display — (720 x 1500 pixels)
- Software: Android v9 (Pie)
- Processor: 2.0 GHz Quad-core CPU (MediaTek MT6761 (Helio A22))

Software, Design, Display
On the software front, the new Tecno Spark 3 Pro ships with the latest and greatest version of the Android operating system right out of the box – Android version 9 (pie) – albeit skinned with Tecno’s custom user interface.
The device is an LTE-enabled one which has dual SIM support – with the capability to have two LTE SIMs within the device at the same time.
Design-wise the Spark 3 pro has an external aesthetic very similar to the Huawei P20 Pro but with the fingerprint reader at the back, and fewer premium materials.
The display, as seen above, is a notched “tall” 6.2-inch IPS LCD panel with a 720 by 1500 pixels resolution and a resulting pixel density of about 268 pixels per inch.
As far as display protection goes, the Spark 3 Pro does not ship with a dedicated protective glass surface (like say, Gorilla glass) so you would have to purchase a protective covering yourself.
Performance, Hardware, Cameras
Beneath its extremely glossy exterior, the Tecno Spark 3 Pro is rocking one of MediaTek’s newer SOCs — the Mediatek Helio A22 -– which makes this Spark a 64 Bit quad-core device having a maximum CPU frequency of around 2.0GHz. Also, graphics on the device are handled by the IMG PowerVR GPU.
On the memory front, the device features 2GB of RAM to handle concurrently running applications and 32GB of storage space — which can also be expanded further by means of an external SD Card
While introducing the device on the day it was launched, a lot of emphases was placed on the Spark 3 Pro and how it would be able to take stunning “AI” photos (selfies and regular photos alike).
The front facing camera featured on the device is an 8 MP “AI” camera which has its own dedicated LED flashlight (as seen above) and is also used for unlocking the device with one’s face. The rear camera, on the other hand, is a dual setup.
This dual setup features a 13 MP primary shooting lens, and a 2 MP secondary camera. Word is Tecno, on the Spark 3 Pro, would be using the secondary lens to collect depth information to produce portraits with better bokeh.
To keep the device running, a non-removable 3500 mAh Li-Ion battery is present within the Spark 3 Pro.
Other features worth pointing out include:
- Face unlock,
- Fingerprint authentication
- Bluetooth 5
