After launching the Tecno Camon CM with 18:9 screen aspect ratio feature, the company went further to unveil another new low-spec variants of the Camon CM, this is the Tecno Spark CM Smartphone!
The Tecno Spark-family has been doing some impressive wonders in the Africa markets which requires clapping-ovation. Well, Tecno Mobile wants to expand the Spark series with the new decisive idea to bring in popular bezel-less display!
The Spark CM is not the first Tecno mobile phone to sports a near bezel-less design but being the first in the Spark series, that is warm-up into the market and that might sky-rock them to more bigger opportunity!

Design and Display
The Spark CM looks more similar or rather say, indifference with Camon CM. On the design, there is the striking-resemblance, on the top bezels, it houses the front selfie camera pixels, light sensor, receiver while at the back, it comes with the same camera settings as seen on Camon CM along with the Fingerprint sensor scanner.
But looking a bit closer, Tecno tried bringing the fingerprint sensor a little up than seen on Camon CM and also, the rear camera pixels looks almost the same but there is the camera bump! With the company logo, boldly written under the Fingerprint sensor!
The handset comes with a 5.7inches IPS HD plus 2.5D curved glass screen with the same 720 x 1440 screen resolution pixels, which translate to 282 PPI with 24 bit color depth. Hence, don’t expect any high resolution display like 1080p. The company made the screen a little more brighter but it is still incomparable to their Camon X Pro!
The phone offers almost 77% screen-to-body ratio, that is much more acceptable, as the bezels around the screen has been trimmed, this allows you to see more! The 7.75mm thickness on the Spark CM differs a lot when compared with 5.6mm on the Camon CM!
The Spark CM is only available in Champagne and Black colors. The phone is a little sleeker, slimmer, light-weighted!
Camera and Connectivity
The Spark CM is made as the “lite version” of the Camon CM. It comes with a 13mega-pixels rear camera with QUAD flashlights while on the front, there is a 8mega-pixels front selfie shooter with LED flash.
That is a knock-off from the Camon CM with 13mega-pixels on the front and back. But you can still expect more clearer shots on the Spark CM, as other mid-range Smartphones still supports the 8MP and 13MP camera pixels.
Yep, the phone comes with 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, this allows you to browse, download faster. Other network and connectivity includes Bluetooth v4.0, WiFi, GPS and OTG.
Performance and Battery
The phone is powered by a MediaTek MT6737H chipset running on 1.25GHz Quad-Core processor coupled with ARM Cortex-A53. Sorry to say this, but the Spark CM won’t be able to complete large varieties of tasks or command sent to it. But the graphics is being taken care of with the ARM Mali-T720 MP2 GPU graphic processor.
With a 1.25GHz processor which is lower than the 1.3GHz on the Camon CM. With such processor performance, the Spark CM isn’t empowered to do very well in high-end functions, such as switching between different apps, watching numerous movies, playing games all at once. So, minimize the tasks given to the Spark CM, in order not to receive a crash reports!
With a back-stabbing 2GB of RAM and a 16GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 128GB via Micro SD card slot is something, I won’t personally recommend for this current generation of Smartphones!
The Tecno Spark CM runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with the company HiOS 2.0 on top. The non-removable Li-Po 3050mAh battery capacity on the device is bigger than 3000mAh capacity on Camon CM,. It can allow you to do more stuffs for a day on a single charge, no talk of quick charging technology.
The Spark CM features a Fingerprint sensor located the back and other traditional securities such as Passwords, Swipe, Pattern, Pin.
