TECNO has unveiled the Spark Go Plus – the phone joins the Spark Go which was announced last year. Just like its smaller sibling, this is an Android Go edition phone, but comes with a bigger display, bigger internal memory, better selfie camera sensor, and a bigger battery.
The LCD panel has 720 x 1,600px resolution (20:9 aspect ratio) and it covers 89.5% of the front. At full blast, the screen can put out 480 nits.
The TECNO Spark Go Plus is an Android Go phone, running HIOS 5.5.2 based on Android 9.0 Go edition. It’s powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset (2.0GHz quad-core CPU) with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The battery has 4,000mAh capacity.
This is a dual-SIM, dual VoLTE phone with two nanoSIM slots and a dedicated slot for a microSD (cards up to 128GB are supported). Additional connectivity includes 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. A fingerprint reader is mounted on the back of the device.
Nestled at the top of the screen in a teardrop notch is the 8MP selfie camera. It has an 81° lens and a dedicated selfie flash. Around the back is another 8MP camera with a dual LED flash.
