Aside the above, every other aspect of the duo remains same. Both the Spark 5 and the Spark 5 Air are powered by an octa-core Mediatek CPU clocked at 2.0GHz, a supposed Helio P22 SoC with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. You are also getting 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage on both variants, which can be expandable up 128GB via SD card.


Also at the front, both phones has a single 8-megapixel selfie camera, but while the Spark 5 Air has dual LED flash, the standard Spark is given just a single LED flash. Painting options includes Ice Jadeite, Spark Orange, Vacation Blue and Misty Grey colors on both side.

There is a rear placed fingerprint scanner, FaceID support, space for dual nano-SIM with 4G LTE network support on both phones, and then, a 5000mAh battery that charges via a Micro USB 2.0 interface on both the Spark 5 and the 5 Air.

As for pricing we currently have no words on the pricing of the Spark 5 Air, but the vanilla Spark 5 is priced at 719  Cedis in Ghana, which translate to around $123 for the 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The phone should also be available through Africa, Indian and other Asian Pacific regions.
