Photography for the tecno spark 4 air means dual 13 + 0.3-megapixel rear mounted camera, with a single LED flash. At the front, there is a 5MP Canada for real selfie shots, which also come with a single LED flash upfront. I believe the 13MP rear camera is a compensation for a 3 rear facing camera which is gradually becoming a norm these days.

Network and Connectivity

This smartphone features a  3.5mm jack and the USB Type C (USB 3.1). This device also features a dual-band Wifi and Bluetooth 5.0. The Tecno Spark 4 air only offers support for Edge and 3G with 4G LTE connectivity. This device works fine with the major telecommunication networks in Nigeria, Including MTN, 9Mobile, Airtel and Glo Mobile.
