Following its debut in Nigeria last month, the Tecno Spark 8 was released in India. And its next stop is Pakistan, our sources confirm the handset to reach Pakistan by the first half of November. We’ll review what the Spark 8 has to offer.

The Tecno Spark 7 successor has entry-level specs that aren’t as competitive as other Chinese brands or even smartphones from Tecno. We’re looking at a 6.52” IPS LCD on Spark 8 with a hefty chin and a drop notch. It delivers a 720P resolution and fills a 20:9 aspect ratio.

Flip the Spark 8 over to find an oversized, glossy camera platform. It features two lenses, a fingerprint scanner, and a lot of blank space. The rear camera is 16MP with a wide f/1.8 lens in front of it. An 8MP front camera is encased in the notch.

You can pick Tecno's new model for 2021 from three colors — mint, slate gray, and violet. The shell is crafted from plastic and finished in two tones. Not to mention, ‘Stop at Nothing’ stamped on the back in giant, bold lettering. Tecno Spark 8 also includes a 3.5mm audio jack and a dated MicroUSB port.

It’s all powered by the generations-old MediaTek Helio A25. The chipset is paired with 2GB of memory and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The Tecno Spark 8 packs a 5000 mAh battery (but the phone lacks fast charging support.) Android 11 Go OS, trimmed down for low-end hardware, runs on this hardware. It’s priced at INR 7,999 (~ Rs. 18,200.)
