Like most recent smartphones, the Tecno Spark 5 is a large device measuring 6.6″ across the surface. It blindly takes on the Camon 15 Lite and Camon 15 Air design. The camera array of 4 lenses are seated on the left hand side with the fingerprint scanner on a parallel line to the last one of them. Right under the LED flash, you’ll find the words *SPARK AI Camera

There are no other significant elements found on the phone’s rear. However, the word TECNO is noticeably printed on the lower part and just above it is the statement “INNOVATION DESIGNED BY TECNO“.

For the facial, Tecno Spark 5 features a 6.6″ infinity display with a punch hole selfie camera space to the upper left and a thin lower bezel. The soft flash and speaker is located at the edge above the display. It could be gotten in 5 different colours which are Ice Jadeite, Spark Orange, Vacation Blue and Misty Grey. Choose your fav.

The Tecno Spark 5 is loaded with Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm) chipset. Accompanying it is an Octa-Core 2.0GHz Cortex-A53 CPU. On it, it runs Android 10.1 spiced with HiOS 6.0 user interface from Tecno. Also for the graphics, we have PowerVR GE8320 with up to 600MHz processing speed.

The main camera setup includes a 13 MP (f/1.8) wide lens, a 2 MP (macro), a 2 MP depth sensor and a QVGA low-light sensor. They are supported by 4 LED flash lights in case of bad lighting. The selfie camera however is made of a single 8MP wide lens and is supported by a soft flash.

You get 32 gigabyte of internal memory and 2 gigabyte of RAM. The internal memory I expandable through a dedicated slot found on the sim plate located on the left hand side of the smartphone.

The Tecno Spark 5 is powered by a 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery and really, that’s all there is to see. Right below, see the full specs of the Tecno Spark 5.
