After teasers, Tecno has launched the Spark 9 Pro in the new Spark 9 series globally, as the successor to last year’s Spark 8 Pro. It has a 6.9-inch Full HD+ screen with 90Hz refresh rate and retains the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC. It has 4GB of RAM, but we can also expect a 6 GB RAM model. The phone runs Android 12 with HiOS 8.6 on top.
It has 50MP rear camera, 2MP depth, AI lens, and 32MP front camera compared to 8MP in the predecessor. The phone has a unique shiny texture mosaic at the back, retains the signature lens of TECNO Galaxy dual ring, with the iconic design of dual-ring triple camera, has side-mounted fingerprint scanner and packs a 5000mAh battery with 18W fast charging.
