With no visible difference with it Spark series predecessors and the Spark 4,  this smartphone appear very stylish and modern. It attempts to fit into the latest trend of smartphones, without deviating from its budget friendliness.

Hardware and Software

The Spark 4 air is powered by a 2.0 GHz Quad-Core Mediatek Helio A22 SoC  processor which come loaded with Artificial Intelligence (AI) features like the finger print and face recognition technology. Alongside the CPU, is a PowerVR GE8320 GPU, a 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. A bezelless water drop IPS LCD display technology of 6.1 inches, and a screen resolution of 1560 by 720 Pixels offers a superb viewing experience and with a classy feel.

Camera

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.

The smartphone is available for purchase in mobile phone retail stores across Nigeria, as well as online retail stores based in Ghana and Kenya.
