As promised, Tecno has unveiled the entry-level Spark Go 2021 in India. Just as its name implies, the device is the successor to the Spark Go 2020 phone released last year. Like the predecessor model, the handset ships with the Go edition of Android OS. It also offers users a big display, a large-sized battery, and 13-megapixel dual cameras.
The Spark Go 2021 is built around a 6.52inch display with a waterdrop notch, which carries support for an HD+ resolution. For selfies, it has a front camera of 8-megapixel with front-firing flash, and its back panel has a 13-megapixel primary and AI lens.
Tecno is yet to confirm the name processor that fuels the device. It offers users 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. For more storage, it has a microSD card slot. It has a 5,000mAh battery to keep the lights on.
The Spark Go 2021 has a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. This feature has arrived as an upgrade as it wasn’t available on the predecessor model. The handset also offers other features like dual SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
