The Cameras

In 2019, the number of rear cameras on smartphones saw a sudden increase. This ushered us into an era where 4 cameras are gradually becoming a trend, an upgrade from dual cameras on the Tecno Spark 3  and the  Tecno Spark 3 pro to a triple camera setup on the Tecno Spark 4 is a welcome development. More cameras mean more features.
Tecno Spark 4 triple camera setup features a 13MP primary with an aperture of F/1.8, 2MP depth camera, and a QVGA camera. There is an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies. Photos taken on the Tecno Spark 4 is definitely going to turn out sharp, but its definitely going to require good lightening conditions.

Hardware and Software

There is definately nothing new here on the hardware aspect. The same hardware we saw on the Spark 3 is what we have on the Spark 4. From Processor to RAM and to storage, they are all the same. The only slight difference here is the battery, which has been increased a bit. Spark 4 features a Quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 Processor, clocked at 2.0GHz. This processing speed is powerful enough to get you round all the basics, from internet surfing to light gaming and all your multitasking needs.
The 4G smartphone also features a 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 4000mAh battery. There is no fast charge mechanism here to speed up charging, you shouldn’t have any wild imaginations about that. Although it was released months after Android 10 went live, the Tecno Spark 4 still runs HiOS 5.5 on top of Android 9.0 Pie. As at the time this article was written, there is no word from Tecno Mobility about future updates.
