Tecno launches Spark 5 and Spark 5 Air: Price in Nigeria, full specs and features 1

Tecno Spark 5 and Tecno Spark 5 Air smartphones have been unveiled. The entry level phones by Transsion parent company succeeds the Spark 4 series that was launched late 2019 in Nigeria.

Although the key specifications of the newly launched Tecno Spark 5 and Spark 5 Air are near-identical, one of the major differences between the two phones has you to be the screen size.

A mammoth 7-inch device to fit into your ever-growing wide palms during the lockdown…

Tecno Spark 5: Specifications

The Tecno Spark 5 runs Android 10 with HiOS 6.1 on top and features a 6.6-inch HD+ (720×1,600 pixels) display. It is powered by an octa-core CPU (chipset unknown) with only 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage.

There’s a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel and the phone supports Face Unlock.

For the camera section, the quad rear setup features a 13MP sensor in the main module with an f/1.8 aperture. This one is supported by a quad LED flash, also fairly rare. Next to those are a 2MP macro camera, a 2MP depth sensor… and a fourth camera… probably AI??!

Honestly, the function of that one isn’t made clear in the official specs, we think it’s just there to boost the camera count.

Impressively, the 8MP waterdrop-style selfie camera which can be located at the rear left corner is joined by a dual LED flash – single LEDs on the front are quite rare, two of them even more so. We’re not sure that the 90.2% StB ratio is correct, but unless you care about number bragging, it’s not much of an issue.

The Tecno Spark 5 further packs a 5000mAh battery with no fast charging support. The phone comes with 32GB inbuilt storage and it is unclear whether it is expandable. For connectivity, the phone includes 3.5mm audio jack, USB-Type C port, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The phone also comes with an Ambient Light sensor, Proximity sensor, and Accelerometer.

The Tecno Spark 5 Air on the other hand comes with a bigger 7-inch HD+ (720×1,640 pixels) display.

The size we’ve all been waiting for cos smartphone innovation is waning right…

The phone runs Android 10 (Go edition) with HiOS 6 on top and also supports Face Unlock. Similar to the Spark 5, the processor make is unclear and there’s 2GB RAM. Additionally, there’s a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel.

The camera arrangements and specs on the Spark 5 Air are all similar to the Tecno Spark 5 smartphone.

Tecno Spark 5 Air also packs a 5000mAh battery with no fast charging support. The phone comes with 32GB in-built storage and it is unclear whether it is expandable. The connectivity options and the sensors on Tecno 5 Air are similar to Tecno Spark 5 device.

Tecno Spark 5, Tecno Spark 5 Air: Price in Nigeria

The new smartphones by Tecno Mobiles have been launched in Ghana. While the Tecno Spark 5 is priced at GHS 719 (roughly ₦49,000) for the single 2GB + 32GB storage variant, the price details of the Tecno 5 Air are currently unknown.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs leaked online with alleged Galaxy S20 camera setup

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs leaked online with alleged Galaxy S20 camera setup 3

As it’s always the case with every new smartphone release; there’s always this excitement with every sneak peak at the details before launch.

We saw that with the Galaxy S20 lineup and looks like the doers have again gone blockbuster with the Samsung Galaxy S20 and several details you might want to know.

While speculations regarding the launch timeline of the phone had been happening, this for the first time that alleged renders of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone have been reported.

And who says it doesn’t look pretty much like the S20??!!

The renders come from Pigtou who claims that these renders are based on drawings obtained by the outlet’s sources and not conceptual.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 rendered spec and features

The expected flagship unsurprisingly looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra with major exception being the boxier appearance and the square corners which is the case with all Note series.

The devices dimensions are 161.8 x 75.3 x 8.5mm, which is roughly the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ or if you want to be more precise, a little more than half a millimitre thicker. The dimensions of the camera module are even reported as well: 38.1mm by 21.9mm.

The Galaxy Note20 and Note20+ are expected to arrive with the same storage allocations as the Galaxy S20 lineup, running either the Snapdragon 865 or the Exynos 990.

The Galaxy Note20 and Note20+ have previously been rumored to come with 4000 mAh and 4500 mAh batteries, respectively.

What better time to make all our wishes come true…

A larger Samsung Galaxy Note20+ much bigger than the Galaxy S20 is expected as well, which will be quite interesting right.

We always love it bigger…

With the dimensions mentioned above (of the Note20), the report suggests it might be 6.7-inches diagonally, and the renders show the display is totally flat. We enjoy the idea that a Note device will no longer have curved edges. It’ll make it easier to use the S-Pen with

The S Pen location has also changed from the right to the left, which is likely what Samsung needed to do to get all the physical buttons over to the right side. The SIM tray is at the top of the device.

The power button also makes its return to the right hand side of the smartphone after an unsuccessful trial on the left with the Galaxy Note 10+.

Other minor tweaks are always what we have come to expect from flagship smartphone upgrades.

Just Ask Apple and their iPhones users…

When is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 launch event

The Galaxy S and Note series have always been an integral part of the Hong Kong based smartphone producer, in fact they are the only Samsung products that do get a official physical launch.

These devices have seen launch venues from New York, London and even Seoul.

However, the situation is beyond the control of the company as COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to stay indoors as much as possible.

Though nothing confirmed yet, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 is expected sometime in August during Samsung’s bi-annual Unpacked event. Only this time, we can expect an only-Virtual launch event.
