Around June last month, the Tecno SPARK 2 came around and impressed us with a series of great features. Now, SPARK 2 has a successor. In April 2019, Tecno introduced a new SPARK Tecno smartphone, Tecno SPARK 3, which was enrolled alongside a Pro version, Tecno SPARK 3 Pro. Since April 2019, Tecno SPARK 3 has ameliorated the SPARK lineup with a bigger 6.2-inch Super FULL VIEW display and a better performance with the new 2.0GHz Quad-Core processor and the latest Android 9 Pie-based HiOS.
The new Tecno phone also brings back some of those awesome features we appreciate and look forward to in the Youth-focused SPARK lineup. Let’s talk all about it. All for you, we prepared a list of the key features, specs and price information of the Tecno phone you need to know and followed it up with a write-up to magnify those details to help you make the best decision. Check it out.

Tecno SPARK 3 Camera
Camera! Camera! Camera enhancement now occupies a major aspect of our modern definition of a smartphone and it seems Tecno is not running short of this knowledge. With this device, Tecno has upped the SPARK lineup’s rear camera setup from a single to a dual AI-powered rear camera setup consisting of a 13MP main camera and a 2MP depth sensor. What that newly added 2MP depth sensor does is to provide excellent depth field effects, while the main camera ensures that you capture brighter shots anytime.
For selfies, SPARK 3 packs an 8MP front camera. The newly upgraded camera system featured on the new Tecno phone has built-in filters that can beautify the expression even in low light (according to the Tecno mobility). Equipped with an AI beauty mode, this device can heighten your natural beauty based on your age, skin tone, or skin type.
Tecno SPARK 3 Memory
Just like last year’s SPARK 2, this device houses an internal memory of 16GB. However, unlike its predecessor which comes with 1GB/2GB RAM options, the new Tecno SPARK 3 only comes with a 2GB RAM.
Tecno SPARK 3 Display
Tecno equipped this device with a much better 6.2-inch Super FULL VIEW display which pushes a 1500-by-720 resolution. Unlike the former Tecno SPARK 2, the display of this device is boardless, meaning that you get a wider space to explore your phone interface. This display featured on this device has a remarkable screen-to-body ratio supporting full screen to distinct clarity and striking colour. So you can expect to be even more immersed in your view, whether you’re playing games, streaming movies, surfing, etc.
Tecno SPARK 3 Performance
This device takes performance in the SPARK series to a whole new level. Coupled with bigger memory, Tecno SPARK 3 is powered by a newly upgraded 2.0GHz quad-core processor to bring you a faster, stronger, and seamless smartphone experience. That’s just part of it. Another factor behind the incredible performance of the new Tecno phone is the fact that this device is run by a HiOS 5.0 based Android 9 Pie.
While the newly featured Android 9 Pie (the latest Android version operating system) improves every aspect of this new device, the more user-friendly and more convenient HiOS 5.0 brings you massive efficiencies and a drastically improved user experience. In short, this new SPARK Tecno smartphone renders an uncommonly good performance.
Tecno SPARK 3 Security
The new Tecno SPARK 3 does it like some of Tecno’s latest smartphones featuring two modern security technologies. As we can easily guess already; we’re talking about the speedy face unlock and the quick fingerprint sensor (very effective personalized security technologies). Using the Face recognition technology, you can unlock your device in an instant with just a look at the screen after lighting up your device. On the other hand, with the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor featured on this device as we know it, lets you unlock your device instantly with a touch.
Tecno SPARK 3 Design
No doubt, Tecno is looking for more obvious ways to relay its SPARK vision – “time to light up”. Inspired by the luminous waves of light, Tecno endowed the new Tecno SPARK 3 with a luminous crystal back cover with a glossy finish. While its glossy finish makes it feel nice and premium to hold, the new luminous crystal design makes it almost literally spark and look very attractive and trending.
This device comes in stunning colours which include Midnight Black, Champagne Gold, Aqua Blue, and Bordeaux Red. Coming to the dimension of the latest Tecno phone, you’re looking at a 155.3mm tall, 75.8mm wide, and 8.15mm thick smartphone.
Tecno SPARK 3 Battery
Tecno SPARK 3’s battery should last relatively as long as the former SPARK 2 since they share a 3,500mAh battery. I said relatively because this device comes with some more features which might sap that battery life a little bit quicker, such as the newly featured AI dual rear camera setup.
Tecno SPARK 3 Network and connectivity
The latest Tecno phone presents you with a dual-SIM slot both of which supports a 4G LTE network connectivity (yes…you’re chilling with a download speed twice as fast as the 3G). Apart from the super-fast 4G LTE, Tecno SPARK 3 supports GSM, WCDMA, and Wi-Fi network connectivity. This device also features GPS (a location technology). With this device, you can also expect to be able to transfer and share files with your friends, colleagues, and family via Bluetooth connection.
Tecno SPARK 3 Sensors
Typically, the new Tecno SPARK 3 features a total of four sensors for more convenient and smart smartphone experience. This device features a G-sensor, an Ambient Light Sensor, a Proximity Sensor, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
