Tecno Spark 3 may launch soon, here’s what we expect

TECNO Spark 3

TECNO started Q1 of 2019 with high gear launching a premium Camon 11 and its Pro sibling that brought users great A.I capabilities. After releasing the POP 2 and POP 2 Pro, the Chinese company is set to give it Spark series a refresh with the TECNO Spark 3.

The company has been relentlessly teasing the TECNO Spark 3 in the neighbouring markets. Although the company is tight-lipped about the launch date of the new Spark 3, its launch seems closer than we would expect, judging by the intensity of the teasers.

The Spark series has built a name for providing good value for money with top features. Starting with the first Spark devices in 2017, TECNO followed them up with an Android Go Spark 2 that gave users bright cameras.

TECNO Spark 3: What we expect

TECNO has gotten into the habit of releasing two variants of a single model. The regular one and a Pro version of the device. Therefore, we expect the Spark 3 to come in 2 variants that is the Spark 3 and Spark 3 Pro.

The Spark series target the mid-range price segment and therefore, we expect the TECNO Spark 3 to cost affordably between UGX 450,000 to UGX 550,000. The regular Spark 3 may cost as much as the Infinix Hot 7 while the Spark 3 Pro might have a slightly higher price but may not go higher than UGX 600,000.

We also expect the Spark 3 duo to come with a notched display and therefore, increased real estate for your multimedia. Transsion Holdings brands like Infinix and Tecno have embraced the notch on all their recent releases. The Spark 3 may take the same direction.

If there are really two Spark 3 devices, then the Spark 3 may use Android Go and 1 GB of RAM and 16GB storage while we expect the Spark 3 Pro to have 2/3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

We expect the regular Spark 3 to miss out on 4G LTE like last year’s Spark 2. However, the Spark 3 Pro may not walk in the footsteps of the Spark 2 and adopt 4G LTE. This will make for faster speeds for both downloads and uploads.

The real specs of the TECNO Spark 3 are still scanty. However, the TECNO Spark 3 will be an improvement of last year’s Spark 2 which was touted for the bright camera. Something we are almost sure about is the presence of the AI cameras. We have seen this will almost all Transsion mid-range devices that have recently been launched in the market.

Will the Spark 3 come with Android Pie out of the box? Don’t be so sure. The recently released Infinix Hot 7 boots Android 8 out of the box. It should therefore not come as a surprise if the TECNO Spark 3 doesn’t come with Android Pie.
