It’s probably no longer news that any Tecno phone with the ‘Air’ tag is a washed down version of the model in question. The Tecno Spark 5 Air, however, may likely be the highest disappointment we’ll be getting from Tecno yet and this is heightened by the fact that the phone is unnecessarily big.
The Tecno Spark 5 Air was announced with the Tecno Spark 5 a few days ago and surely, the Spark 5 pro can’t be far behind. Though none of them has been released yet, the news we’ve received concerning the Spark 5 Air is rather heart-breaking.
The outward design isn’t much of a problem, alright. But despite its size, it maintains the 720 x 1640 resolution found on 6.6″ phones like Camon 15 Lite and Air (even this is considered poor) and with it comes also a low pixel density of 256 dots per inch. Blurring is surely expected.
The tech behind it is no better as Tecno decides to give us a Quad-Core CPU and MediaTek’s chipset. I’m guessing MT6761 Helio A22 (if not worse). This will be confirmed upon release. The ROM and RAM are also not encouraging. 32-gigabyte storage coupled with 2-gigabyte memory is not a combo I think anybody will brag about.
The most impressive feature on this phone is none other than the battery which is a 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery. Charging this phone from 0 to 100 however, will require real patience since it comes without any fast charge technology.
Like every other thing on this phone (except the battery of course), the camera also gives the ‘what-the-f*ck?’ impression. It sports a pair of 13 megapixels lenses as the rear camera setup while the front camera is a single 8 megapixels sensor seated in a teardrop notch.
Maybe it’s true that the megapixels don’t do much for photo quality. But for all we know, if Tecno is giving you this low MP, you can’t get much out of it.
The Tecno Spark 5 Air is expected to be released this month. The price will definitely be out with it but personally, I’m putting this phone between NGN30,000 to NGN35,000 in Nigeria.
