It is built with a glass front, plastic frame, and glass back, this is the first ever glass and Magic Skin Back panel design on the Spark line-up . It’s pearl white color is pleasing to the eyes and the starry glass material also enhances the feel.
From a distance, it gives an iPhone kind of premium look that case class in terms of design. The display screen is ideal for media consumption, business productivity, photography and videography.
The phone also features a stereo earphone jack, charging port and speaker at the bottom panel. On the sides, we have the sim tray on the upper left. On your right, we have three buttons, Tecno separated the volume buttons so you can adjust and reduce the volume with the upper buttons and power the phone with the lower button.
I’m surprised it comes with the headphone jack and a pair of earphones too. Most phone makers are ditching this option. Especially for the younger generation, having these specs in place is a good startegy to attract the GenZ who love convenience.
