Tecno Spark 4 is the latest smartphone from Tecno Mobiles-owned by Transsion Holdings. The Spark 4 comes in two variants with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage and it starts at Rs 7,999 in the Indian market. The Tecno Spark 4 takes on the newly launched smartphones like Redmi 8A, Moto E6s, Infinix Hot 8 and others in the similar price range. The new launch from Tecno Mobiles ship with Helio A22 SoC, HD+ display with a teardrop notch on top and triple rear cameras. The phone also sports a 4000mAh battery, but the Redmi 8A, which is launched in India today, retails at a very less price and it even offers better specs than the Tecno Spark 4. However, Tecno Mobiles says the Spark 4 is aimed at the offline market and it will compete with the Galaxy A series of phones available under Rs 10,000.
