The mobile phone market has recently seen the intense competition, and several brands, including OPPO, TECNO, Samsung, Huawei, Infinix, Realme, and Xiaomi, have introduced new models with improved functionality and aesthetics, giving today’s youth an increasing number of options. We are familiar with TECNO since we have admired their products in the past because they concentrate on producing inexpensive yet very amazing phones that satisfy consumer needs. Consider the TECNO Spark 9 Pro, which is their most recent smartphone.
The key to TECNO’s success in the global emerging market has been the company’s ability to adapt the features of its phones to the demands of the local market. TECNO is also dedicated to giving its customers access to the newest technological advancements for consumers. With its outstanding 32MP super clear selfie camera, the Tecno Spark 9 Pro model helps young people express themselves more confidently by enabling them to capture clearer, brighter selfies. With enhanced features including Super Night Mode 3.0 and AI Portrait Restoration, it offers more pixels and improved photosensitive performance.
Tecno Spark 9 Pro: Design & Display
The Spark 9 Pro is a contemporary smartphone, not a dated model with a notch. The actual display is large and flat. To listen to your caller without having to center a smaller earpiece to your ear, there is a wide hidden horizontal line for the earphone above the display. The top right corner of the display also has a notification (white) light.
The back panel’s texture is really great. The smartphone is divided into two halves. On the top side, there is a horizontal section with a nearly glossy design (in black). The remainder has a sand-blast texture and is matte (also in black). We have a sizable yet tastefully constructed camera space on the left. The large vertical configuration is divided into the top, where three camera sensors are visible, and the right, where the TECNO SPARK emblem is visible.
You will enjoy viewing movies on the Tecno Spark 9 Pro’s 6.6-inch screen, which has a screen-to-body ratio of 83.4, a 20.9 aspect ratio, and a Full HD+ resolution. Its display is made of an IPS LCD panel with a refresh rate of 90Hz. This phone is bright enough to use outside thanks to the screen’s maximum brightness of 500 nits.
A triple-lens camera is included in the smartphone. A 50MP primary camera, as well as a 2MP portrait sensor and AI sensor, are included. Because of the configuration, there is no way to use a telephoto or ultra-wide lens. It may put you off right away if you’re trying to take a few photos of the surroundings and the like. It’s worth mentioning, though, that many budgets and midrange cameras lack an ultra-wide lens.
The main camera is in charge of a lot of the heavy lifting in this scene. With the 50MP camera, you can expect some amount of quality if the lighting conditions are ideal. The images were crisp, the colors were vibrant, and the contrast was outstanding. HDR support is also included for enhanced lighting.
The Tecno Spark 9 Pro takes use of Tecnos AI scene selector to make the most of its surroundings. This, too, varies based on the scene’s object.
The TECNO SPARK 9 Pro has also enhanced Super Night Mode 3.0 with AI Scene Light Detection, Multi-frame Fusion Optimization Algorithm, and the state-of-the-art Touch-up Restoration Technology. Even when photographing in a gloomy location, this effectively brightens your image to make it both clear and natural. Additionally, even in weak lighting, the Ring Screen Fill-in Light offers an even, three-dimensional fill-in light for the face.
Tecno Spark 9 Pro Performance
A MediaTek Helio G85 octa-core chipset with a 12nm process technology powers the Tecno Spark 9 Pro. When it comes to performance, this chipset isn’t the finest on the mid-range market. This indicates that the performance of the Tecno Spark 9 Pro is somewhat limited. However, it functions flawlessly for daily tasks such as swiping through various phone apps, using the internet, multitasking and watching movies.
You can also play some graphically demanding games, but only with specified settings to prevent the phone from running slowly and perhaps lagging or overheating. A Mali-G52 MC2 GPU is also supported by the chipset, ensuring high-quality graphics while playing games.
Both 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage are available for the Tecno Spark 9 Pro. 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage are also available. Additionally, there is a specific microSD card slot for each RAM option you select.
The Tecno Spark 9 Pro runs a customized version of Android 12 called HiOS 8.6. This phone has a ton of features and apps that you could find helpful to improve your phone experience.
The Tecno Spark 9 Pro’s battery has a 5000mAh capacity, which we felt to be excessive. An 18W rapid charging support that charges the phone’s battery from empty to full in one hour is included in the box.
If you’re a typical user, the Tecno Spark 9 Pro’s battery can last for 24 hours. We believe that this was done on purpose to keep the price low, despite the fact that it is not an improvement over the model from last year.
Tecno Spark 9 Pro price in Nigeria and availability
The Tecno Spark 9 Pro is already available for sale in Tecno’s stores and retail stores across Nigeria. Its price ranges from N90,000 to N95,000.

For those on a tight budget who yet want to wow their friends and family, this is undoubtedly “the selfie phone”. Your needs for photography for social media and other purposes can be readily met by the TECNO Spark 9 Pro. The main camera arrangement performs well, but the absence of electronic image stabilization and video recording sound detracts from the area’s overall performance.
Although the SoC is stable, cool, and energy-efficient, 3D gaming and multitasking are difficult. Rich software still needs refining to get rid of some bloatware. The 5000mAh battery has excellent standby times, and an 18W charger can charge it quickly enough. The inclusion of a case and earbuds in the box is a benefit, and the design is excellent.
