Design, Display, and Camera
The Tecno Spark 10 Pro comes in its company signatories’ color options – Starry Black and Pearl White. It’s 8.46mm thick, offering a slimmer body mass. However, it is not sleek, slim, or even curvy, but it is comfortable to hold.
For starters, this is Tecno’s first Spark series phone with a Glass Back Panel Design, which the company called hard-wearing glass with a unique starry glass. The back panel feels at home, giving out that flagship vibe.
It features a 6.8-inch (1080 x 2400 pixels) HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling, there’s a dot-in feature that houses a 32-megapixel front-facing camera with support super dual LED flash, which brings glowing selfie photography to light.
There are three (3) large camera circles around the back, all plastered on a glassy panel offering a one-in-all powerful 50-megapixel AI dual camera, alongside a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and AI Lens with Dual LED flash support on the forefront.
Gaming Performance and Battery
With the MediaTek Helio G88 12nm processor running through the inside of the Spark 10 Pro, the octa-core CPU features 2GHz Cortex-A75 and 6x Cortex-A55 CPUs operating up to 2GHz, enabling responsive reactions, fast app loading, and camera snaps.
The processor also arrives with ARM Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU @ 1000MHz, and MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 lite generation for smoother performance in heavy-loading game engines, demanding scenes, and intense gameplay.
The HyperEngine 2.0 Lite also brings in High FPS Power Savings by combining hardware and software enhancements to reduce power consumption during high FPS gaming scenes, all thanks to the intelligent Resource Management Engine.
To cap these off, the new handset comes with 8GB LPDDR4x RAM and 8GB of additional virtual RAM, to cap it off at 16GB total, and also available in big and massive storage capacity at 128GB / 256GB internal storage, and they’re both expandable with microSD.
However, when it comes to the battery life, and fast charging capacity, the Spark 10 Pro is similar to its predecessor, a 5000mAh battery at 18W. Other features include a 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio, Stereo speakers, Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, GPS, and NFC.
It runs HiOS 12.6 based on the Android 13 operating system out of the box. The Tecno Spark 10 Pro pricing is around N120,000 to N140,000 in Nigeria, and these totally depend on the storage options – 128GB and 256GB with 8GB RAM.
