Tecno’s latest Spark 8 have arrived on the company’s official website for the first time. So even though the phone has been selling in some African regions like Nigeria, Tecno have not in anyway shown their official relationship with the device until today. Thanks to the official listing, we now know that the Spark 8 has three colors all together; which includes Turquoise Cyan, Atlantic Blue and Iris Purple.
We already did an unboxing preview of the phone, and our full review of the device should be ready soon. But in comparison to the the older Spark 7, the new Spark 8 may be excelling only in design, especially on the rear, and this may not be an impressive upgrade for everyone.
The Spark 8 is housing almost same internal specs as the Spark 7, and it even lost 1000mAh battery power in the manufacturing process, bringing in a 5000mAh battery, against the 6000mAh juice on the 7. But the internal storage have gotten enormously large, which is clearly not the case with the RAM. Here are the key specs of Tecno’s new Spark 8.
