Tecno has launched a new budget smartphone. The company has unveiled the Tecno Spark 8C, which is the company’s fifth smartphone under the series. It had first announced the Spark 8 in September 2021, followed by the Spark 8P, 8 Pro, and the Spark 8T.
The new Tecno budget smartphone is currently not available in India. However, we can expect the company to launch its new budget smartphone soon in the country. The phone comes with features like a 90Hz display, dual-camera setup, etc. While we wait for the official launch date, let’s take a look at the Tecno 8C specifications, features, and other details.
Tecno Spark 8C RAM and Storage
Tecno has not announced the pricing details of the 8C at the moment. The phone’s RAM and storage options are confirmed. It has a base variant with 2GB of RAM. The 3GB RAM option comes with 64GB of internal storage.
We can expect the phone to be available for under Rs 10,000 in India upon its launch. The device comes in four colours – Grey, Purple, Black and Cyan.
Specifications and features
The Spark 8C comes with a 6.6-inch display with an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels. Since it is a budget offering, the device does not feature an AMOLED display but instead comes with an LCD. It has a waterdrop notch at the top centre for the 8MP front camera. The device also comes with 90Hz refresh rate support.
On the back, there is a rectangular camera block that houses a dual-camera setup. The main camera has a 13MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. It is paired with an AI lens. The camera module also houses an LED flash unit. The rear camera system comes with features like HDR mode, AR stickers, time-lapse mode, AI scene recognition, bokeh mode, etc.
Next to the camera sensors is the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The phone also supports AI face unlock. Under the hood, there is a 5,000mAh battery. There is no word on fast charging support. Therefore, we can expect the phone to support 10W charging out of the box. For memory expansion, the device comes with support for a microSD card.
Details about the processor remain unknown. However, it is being speculated that the phone features a Unisoc T610 chipset under the hood. The same chipset is found on the likes of the Realme C21Y, C25Y, Moto E40, etc.
