As expected, Tecno unveiled most of the details about the Spark 7 today. The phone will go on sale through Amazon India next week, starting on the 16th (i.e. next Friday).
One of the highlight features of the Tecno Spark 7 is its 6,000mAh battery. The company advertises 30 days standby, but doesn’t say much about actual usage (e.g. video play time) or charging speeds. A charger will be included in the retail package, along with a microUSB cable (no USB-C here).
The phone has a 6.5” display with 720 x 1,600 px resolution. Embedded in a notch at the top is the 8MP “swagger” camera. The interesting thing about it is that there are two LEDs embedded in the top bezel that will serve as flash.
Around the back is the 16MP dual camera. We suspect that the second module is a depth sensor as Tecno advertises that it features Video Bokeh. The camera can also record 120 fps slow-motion videos.
The phone runs Android 11 out of the box, customized with Tecno’s HiOS software 7.5 (which features dark mode and chat bubbles). The chipset is a Helio A25 (12nm, 8xCortex-A53 CPU, GE8320 GPU) and it comes with limited memory – the base configuration is 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage with a 3/64GB option. There is a dedicated microSD slot if you need more.
The Tecno Spark 7 is a 4G phone with VoLTE support. It also features a 3.5mm headphone jack with an FM radio receiver.
The Spark 7 will be available through Amazon India starting from noon on April 16. The 2/32GB model will cost INR7,500 ($100/€85) with the 3/64GB option going up to INR8,500. Note that there will be an early bird deal that subtracts INR500 off the price on launch day.
