Design & Display Of Tecno Spark 5 Air
The Tecno Spark 5 Air is specifically made for those who are interested in Big screens. It packs a huge 7-inch LCD screen and almost looks like a small tablet, only that it is much taller.
Sadly, the resolution of the screen is only at 720p and this is way too small for most people. This is 2020 and most people are after good screen resolutions and this is all due to the fact that most people watch movies and play video games with their phones.
This time around, instead of a punch-hole cutout, Tecno went for a teardrop notch and I think this is all due to marketing strategy. I mean you can’t expect a big screen, big battery, and the latest HiOS 6.0 skin plus a punch hole on the same budget phone that is considered to be the smaller version of Spark 5. If that happened then it’ll directly compete with its bigger sibling.
The configuration of the camera module is similar to the Spark 5 except this time around there are three camera lenses.
The Tecno Spark 5 is equipped with a Triple-camera configuration featuring a 13-megapixel main lens with f/1.8 aperture, an AL lens, and a QVGA lens. The 8-megapixel selfie camera is fitted within the dot-notch.
Features of the camera include Al scene detection, Al HDR, Al Bokeh, Portrait, Al beauty, and Wide selfie.
Tecno claims that her latest Al camera algorithm has improved greatly with many upgrades on the portrait shots and night shots. Thereby giving more focus on portrait objects and also clearer and vivid photos when taken at night.
Performance & Battery
The chipset for this phone has not yet been announced, but all we know is that it has a quad-core processor with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM. There’s a microSD card slot to expand storage space.
When it comes to the performance capabilities on the phone it is at minimal but, based on the expected price, it is pretty decent.
The device runs on Android 10’s Lite edition known as the Android 10 Go Edition with HiOS 6.0 UI.
Finally, the device is fueled by a 5000mAh battery. This is a powerful capacity that will deliver 14 hours of video playback!

Price & Availability
The expected release and price are yet to be announced.
Just like its predecessors, the Spark 5 Air packs at a cheaper cost in better specifications than other budget phones, which can get a little bit costly especially in this year’s global economic crisis.
The Tecno Spark 5 Air is no doubt a perfect choice if you want the latest specifications but don’t need a big performance, camera or display qualities.
Tecno is really trying to top the market of budget phones and with this phone, Spark 5, and probably other budget phone releases in the nearest future, I think they’ll do well.
