Tecno Spark 8T is here
The Tecno Spark 8T was launched recently as part of Tecno’s Spark 8 lineup of smartphones. The Sparkn 8T, which was officially launched in December 15 in India, comes with an impressive array of specs and features and upgrades over the vanilla Tecno Spark 8 that went live in the country in September this year. The smartphone from Tecno is aimed for the affordable segment of the market and comes with really nice specs like an octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 chipset under the hood, dual rear cameras headlined by the 50-megapixel sensor and 5000mAh battery. The new Tecno phone comes in four different colour options as well. Price of the new Tecno Spark 8T has been set at Rs. 8,999 for the lone 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Tecno Spark 8T smartphone runs on Android 11 with HiOS v7.6 on top and features a 6.6-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,408 pixels) display with 91.3 percent screen-to-body ratio, and a peak brightness of 500 nits. The handset measures 164.25x75.87x8.85mm. It comes in four vibrant colour options of Atlantic Blue, Cocoa Gold, Iris Purple, and Turquoise Cyan colours.
In terms of performance, the Tecno Spark 8T is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. The storage can be expanded via a microSD card through a dedicated slot on the Tecno Spart 8T. Accompanying the processor, the battery further strengthens the overall performance aspect of this budget smartphone. Tecno Spark 8T features a 5,000mAh battery and comes with optimised power-saving modes. The company claims that the battery can offer up to 38 days standby time, and up to 122 hours of music playback. The Tecno Spark 8T is also said to offer up to 40 hours of calling time.
The camera section is also quite impressive considering the under 10k price point of the device. The Tecno Spark 8T comes with a dual rear camera setup that houses a 50-megapixel primary sensor along with an f/1.6 lens and an AI lens coupled with a quad LED flash. The rear camera supports different professional photography and videography modes such as AI Beauty, AR Animoji and Stickers, Google Lens, Time-lapse, Slow Motion, Smart Portrait, and Video Bokeh. Along with the primary functions, there are also some other camera features including 1080p time-lapse photography, and 120fps slow motion. Tecno has offered an 8-megapixel sensor at the front with dual flash support for your selfies and video chats.
The Tecno Spark 8T comes with all the regular connectivity options on the device which include 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Micro-USB, FM radio, and USB OTG. There are also a number of sensors on board that include an ambient light sensor, g-sensor, and proximity sensor. The phone also has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Additionally, Spark 8T packs DTS Sound SOPLAY 2.0. I think for a mere price point of 9k, this Tecno smartphone manages to offer quite a lot!
