TECNO is announcing the latest Spark model, the Spark 9 Pro which comes with a 32MP HD front camera, MediaTek Helio G85 chipset, a 6.6″ 1080P Full HD large screen and a 5000 mAh battery. The device comes with an upgraded design, a lighter body and an improved photography experience. The Spark 9 series will have three devices, the 9 Pro, 9T(64GB) and 9T(128GB).
It spots a right-angled edge and the 8.42mm lightly slim body which TECNO says makes it pocket friendly. The Spark 9 Pro comes with a 1080P FHD+ 6.6” Ultra HD screen and a 90Hz high refresh rate. This upgrade is expected to make scrolling smoother and touch feedback more sensitive. It will be powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 Chip Engine which comes with an Arm Mali-G52 GPU.
