Tecno Spark 5 – A Look Alike?

This is the Tecno Spark 5, a very much identical piece to some previously manufactured Tecno Smartphones we have seen before now in Nigeria. Now i am beginning to wonder if anything new here.

The Tecno Spark 5 is by no means a big surprise to wow! you. You probably must have seen a similar design to this one especially when you think about the Camon series. Remember!



That is not to say that the Tecno Spark 5 didn’t have any new features. In fact, the new features are heavy on the software scene which for the most part is a brilliant upgrade in the Spark series.

On the display is a 6.6 Inch punch-hole HD+ screen that is truly immersive with a wider and brighter visual experience. It has a 90.2% perfect screen ratio that contributes to a more wonderful and much broader full view experience.

We definitely cannot end this part without taking a second look at the design of the device. Did you notice how identical the Tecno Spark 5 is to the Camon 15?

Can you spot any heavy difference between both? The first is the name that is written on the camera module of both phones. The packaging is different too. Out of the box, they are both identical twins. I guess you will have to shine your eyes when making a purchase in Nigeria.

Final Thoughts

Now that smartphone producers have succeeded in taking of the notch and bezels I guess the punch hole display is the next thing to fall back to since the Tecno Spark 5 also feature a similar body.

The Tecno Spark 5 is another worthy option to consider if you don’t feel like travelling the camon way. You get amazing software with decent cameras and a sufficient battery life to utilize.

We all can clearly see the power of identity here. When you are used to producing for the budget market in Nigeria, it can be hard to set up a new landmark hence the need to continue with the trend.

With Tecno rolling out a whole bunch of identical smartphones from her different variants, we are beginning to see what the design trend in the budget market will look like in 2020
