Tecno Spark 8P with Helio G85, 18W flash charging launching in India
Tecno has confirmed via a tweet that it would be launching the Spark 8P in India soon. The Tecno Spark 8P was first launched in October last year and it features an impressive specs lineup while retaining the affordable pricing Tecno phones are known for. The company’s teaser detailed some of the device’s specs and shows undoubtedly that the device will be the same as the model launched last year.
The series of teasers show the device will pack a 50MP main camera at the rear in a triple camera setup. The device will also come with 4GB RAM as well as 3GB of virtual RAM bumping the available RAM to 7GB.
For reference, the Tecno Spark 8P packs a 6.6-inch LCD screen with a Full HD+ resolution, an aspect ratio of 20:9, and support for a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone packs a punch-hole design with the opening housing an 8MP selfie camera.
Under the hood, the Spark 8P features a MediaTek Helio G70 chipset but the Indian variant will be powered by an Helio G85 chipset as per the teaser. The G85 is the same chip used on the Pova 2, the Spark 8 Pro, and a host of other phones that have received good reviews.
Finally, the 5000mAh battery has support for 10W charging on the global variant but India’s variant will come with a cool 18W fast charging support. Last year’s model runs on Android 11 out of the box but there is no word yet if this version will run on Android 12 from the go. We expect the company to roll out the launch itinerary soon.
