The journey of the Tecno Spark series began since the year 2017, when Tecno first unveiled the Spark (K7) Smartphone, which came with just 5.5-inch Display and the aged Mediatek MT6580 CPU. Since that time, the Tecno Spark series has increased both in stature and muscles. The latest of the series is the Tecno Spark 3 Pro smartphone, which brings better built, design and improved specifications over it predecessor. It even comes with a notch display Cut-out similar to what you’ll find on high-end devices.

Tecno Spark 3 Pro features and reviews

Specification wise, the Tecno Spark 3 Pro comes with a larger 6.2-inch display with an unknown version of Corning Gorilla Glass. The device comes with a 19:9 aspect ratio, bearing a display resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels. This is a similar display used on most recent Tecno phones, including the Camon 11 Pro.

The processor used in the Tecno Spark 3 Pro is the Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 CPU, which has a Quad-core CPUs clocked at 2.0GHz each, along with PowerVR GE8320 GPU, 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

Tecno Spark 3 Pro specs features and price

I personally think that the choice of this processor is the best part of the Spark 3 Pro, seeing that Tecno had previously, relied heavily on the use of the older Mediatek MT6580, which lack 4G LTE network.

So does the Tecno Spark 3 Pro have support for 4G LTE network? Yes. Not only that, it also has support for dual Nano-SIM and a dedicated micro SD card slot. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, AI face recognition among others.

As for the camera department, the device provides a combination of 13 +2-megapixel rear cameras, along with quad-LED flash. At the front, there’s a single 8 megapixel front-facing camera, which also have a single LED flash.

Tecno Spark 3 Pro colors

The Tecno Spark 3 is an AI enabled smartphone; from processor to camera setups. And to balance it all, it comes with Android 9.0 (Pie) out of the box. Other specifications and silent features of this Tecno device are detailed in the table below.

Tecno Spark 3 Pro - User Reviews and Opinions

47 COMMENTS

  1. I have accessed one the version of tecno spark 3,This is a phone of its own nature,I like its features and everything pertaining it,Lots of love to tecno company u have made it,compete favourably with other companies

  2. I love this phone,its features are run smoothly,l cant compare it to any phone,you bit you competitors 5 times, keep it up techno

  3. Please, when is the Tecno Spark 3 Pro will be available in Nigeria too. I really need to get one, kindly advise where I can get it (tecno spark 3 pro). Thank you

  4. Tecno 3 pro is the real product i have ever used,very excellent and accurate,i wish i could get more one for my beloved wife,and another one for my daughter.

  5. There’s a noice in the phone when u turn it upside down in the spark 3 pro I bought from online in Ghana and I want to know if that’s how it is?

  6. i bought my in Ghana ,but my problem is that taco spark 3pro is slowing my dream league soccer game .can’t let me enjoy the game …is too bad at playing a game

  7. My tecno spark 3 pro has no 4g lite why and I bought in order to access 4g lite you tecno what you are doing is not fair to your customers

    • First, there’s nothing like 4G Lite, rather it is called 4G LTE. Secondly, except the Spark 3 Pro you bought is not original, all original tecno spark 3 Pro has support for 4G LTE network.

  8. Am using tecno spark 3 pro now but mine is not displaying 4G LTE network only 3G and 2G and am using 4G sim already
    Pls wat can i do?
    Anyone? Plllssss

    • Well, I can’t really or directly tell you what to do. You might need to try a combination of things like: 1. Ensure your network provider has LTE network in your area: Go to your phone settings and scan available networks in your zone. For example, if you use MTN, then you should be able to see MTN 4G (or so) in the networks, or 2. You could even simply check that 4G is not turned off on your spark 3 Pro in network settings. 3. I would also check if the Spark 3 Pro you have is original.
