Tecno Spark 4 is one of the two phones that mark the fourth generation of the Spark series. The other phone is the Tecno Spark 4 Air. This smartphone has the latest design trends but comes at a price that is not far from that of its predecessor. However, there are a few improvements that make it a worthy upgrade of the Tecno Spark 3. It has better cameras, a better display and more.
Tecno Spark 4 design and display
This smartphone seems to follow the design blueprint used in other Tecno phones released in 2019.
It has a plastic back with round edges and a display with a waterdrop notch. It has the modern look – you will love how it looks especially if it has been a while since you upgraded your phone. This phone looks good and it is nice that Tecno managed to attach a wallet-friendly price tag.
You will love the gradient design used on the back cover. If you get the blue color, you will realize that there are two fades – lighter blue and darker blue. The same can also be said about the Purple and other color variants. The rear cover houses the phone’s triple camera lenses, a fingerprint sensor and has the Tecno branding.
This handset features a 6.52-inch IPS LCD display with a waterdrop notch. The display has a resolution of 720 pixels by 1600 pixels. Like the Spark 3, this phone has a bottom bezel but it is significantly smaller than what you find in the Spark 3.
Tecno spark 4 is available in four colors – Purple, Red, Grey, and Blue.
Tecno has always tried hard to give its customers good camera phones at low prices. The company has done it again with the Spark 4. In 2019, we have seen phones from Nokia, Oppo, Huawei, Samsung and others with more than three cameras. In the spirit of keeping up with the latest trends, Tecno decided to include a triple-lens camera on this phone. If you though the dual camera setup on the Tecno Spark 3 Pro was impressive, you will be pleased to know that there are three cameras at the back of the Spark 4.
The triple rear module is made up of a 13 megapixels primary lens with f/1.8 aperture, a 2 megapixels depth sensor, and a QVGA camera. The front-facing selfie camera is 8 megapixels. There is a rear LED flash for low light photography.
You should expect nothing other than sharp photos from this device in places with good light.
