Tecno Spark 8C Review – Following the release of their latest phone Pop 5x back in January, the Tecno Mobile Company has just added to the collection of their Spark 8 series, with the new Tecno Spark 8C which was recently launched by the company. Tecno Spark 8C could be the best comparison to the previously released Spark 8 Pro of the spark 8 series, with its battery capacity of 5000mAh, but might differ in terms of camera, memory, and processor. Despite having 2GB RAM, we might still expect its 3GB and 4GB RAM versions as well.
Tecno smartphones are specifically targeted at the low budget earners with the company having what it takes to compete in the market with the superb quality they offers to the public. Meanwhile, there’s a minimal difference between the Spark 7 and Spark 8 smartphones as they both spot almost similar quality basic features that are essential for the entry.
Arguably, the Tecno Mobile Company might be the best producer of this year when it comes to Mobile phones with the likes of Pop 5S, Pop 5X, and Canon 18T already released in India but not yet in Nigeria. However, the recently launched Tecno Spark 8C has been announced on the company’s site in Nigeria at an affordable price.
