Tecno Spark 5 – Hurray! the anticipated Tecno spark 5 smartphone is out and it promises to be quite a phone with its 5 camera feature. I think the 5 camera feature was adopted from its name, “Spark 5”.
Tecno recently launched the 15th edition of its Camon series earlier this year between March and April to be precise. Earlier this month, they announced the launch of another of its greatly reviewed series. The 5th Tecno edition of its Spark series was announced on the 4th of May 2020.
It received a warm welcome from smartphone enthusiasts around the world especially in Africa, to an extent almost as when the Camon 15 was launched. The Tecno Spark 5 might just be the best phone Tecno might launch this year mostly because of its price.
The Tecno Spark 5 comes in two types; Tecno Spark 5 and Tecno Spark 5 air. They look extremely similar apart from their screen sizes and camera system.

Altogether it’s a great phone, not the best Tecno has come up with this year but its features do very well match its price. The Tecno spark 5 was launched on the 5th of May 2020.
It’s currently available in African countries like Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana and so on, also available in India. While the Tecno Spark 5 is priced at $122, not much on price can be said about the Tecno spark 5 Air. It will definitely be priced around the same amount.
