Tecno has been busy with the release of various models. They are so much that they have been classified into families. One of such families is the Spark family which has been in existence since 2017, with their first release been Tecno Spark (K7). However, they have launched higher models since then.
Tecno Spark 3 Pro is of the third generation of the Spark series. It is the higher model of Tecno Spark 3 even though they were launched at the same time. However, the specs and price are what to look into before dashing into the purchase and how to fully maximize its capacity after purchase. The peculiarity of Tecno 3 Pro from others Spark 3 is mainly its internal memory and the network they support.
Tecno Spark 3 price in Nigeria started at ₦42,000 during its launch period. However, with the release of its successor, the price has reduced by 20%.
Tecno Spark 2 (launched June 2018)
Tecno Spark 4 and Tecno Spark 4 Air (launched August 2019)
Spark 3 Pro has the same body and features with Spark 3. The screen sports a corning gorilla glass which is strong enough not to break upon simple falls. At the top of the screen is a rectangular notch that houses the selfie camera, an LED flash, and call speakers. While the rear side of the phone features a dual-camera, an LED flash are arranged vertically to the top-left corner of the phone. It also has a fingerprint scanner situated at the half-top centre.
The right side features the volume rockers and the power button while the left side of the phone has the dual nano-SIM and SD card tray. The top has nothing on it but the bottom part displays the 3.5mm audio jack, multimedia speakers and a micro USB port.
Tecno incorporated a rectangular notch for Spark 3 Pro’s screen. It also has a close screen-to-body display of about 83%, just like Spark 3.
Tecno Spark 3 Pro comes with a 6.2-inch super full view IPS LCD touchscreen display and a resolution of 1,520 x 720 pixels. It has an aspect ratio of 19:9 which was the determiner of its sleek frame. It also has a pixel density of 269ppi which means its screen sharpness is a little bit higher than its predecessor’s.
It has a dimension of 155.3 x 75.8 x 8.15 mm (H × W × D) and a weight of 146 grams.
The Camera and Face ID
To show its an upgraded generation of the Spark family, Spark 3 Pro has an AI dual-camera lens of 13MP and 2MP with a quad-LED flash. However, the 13MP lens has an f/1.8 aperture and autofocus ability while the 2MP is for blurring the background. The AI feature, therefore, enables it to produce a better image and video quality than its predecessor under varying lighting conditions.
On the front, Spark 3 has a single camera of 8MP, an f/2.0 aperture and an LED flash. This has contributed to its ability to take blurry images and add AR effects
Due to its AI-powered selfie, it features automatic face detection which enables its facial unlock system. Under adequate lighting, it unlocks very fast but when it is dark, you’d have to switch on the front flash.
Tecno has decided not to capitalize on a big battery but maintained the same capacity the predecessor has. Spark 3 Pro was launched with a 3500 mAh non-removable, Li-Ion battery.
The battery will give you up to 30 hours of steady performance under heavy usage. It can last 28 hours of calk and 31 hours of music playback. It is important to know that it doesn’t support super fast-charging as it takes up to 3 hours to be fully charged from zero percent.
Memory and Connectivity
The Spark 3 Pro has the same RAM with an upgraded variant of its predecessor. It sports a RAM of 2GB. However, with the adoption of Android Pie as the OS, it will perform faster than its predecessor when it comes to app-to-app operation.
It sports a large memory capacity of 32GB ROM —more than Spark 3 — and an expandable external memory space up to 64GB via a microSD card.
Tecno Spark 3 also supports 2G/3G/4G LTE networks. It has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi Direct, WiFi hotspot and Bluetooth v5.0. It also supports a micro USB v2.0 and USB On-The-Go.
Hardware and Software
Tecno Spark 3 Pro sports Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 CPU with a 2.0 GHz quad-core processor. It has PowerVR GE8320 GPU installed in its makeup which makes it faster than its predecessor.
Spark 3 Pro runs the latest HiOS v4.6 which comes with the Android 9.0 (Pie). This has created a better user interface and user experience with the amazing feature of system navigation gesture and accelerated gaming.
