Announcement. Tecno Spark 9 is a budget smartphone for India

In India, the low-cost smartphone Tecno Spark 9 was announced.

To his formally older brother Tecno Spark 9Pro newbie is similar except for the battery and dimensions, it makes no sense to compare them. But with the “Nigerian” Tecno Spark 9T, there are more points of contact. And the chipset, and the screen, and the same battery. And the rear camera sets are close. Only the Spark 9T has a disproportionately sophisticated front camera - as much as 32 MP. And in Spark 9 it is normal, it corresponds to the ranking table.

About the characteristics.

The chipset is the MediaTek Helio G37, which is essentially a cosmetic upgrade to the 2018 MediaTek Helio P35 chip. In AnTuTu we are waiting for 120-130 thousand points. Those. everything is very modest.

Memory. Three options. From 3 + 64 GB, which is frankly “not enough” to quite reasonable 6 + 128 GB. There is support for memory cards.

Despite the frank budget of the device,the screen is equipped with a slightly increased (up to 90 Hz) refresh rate. Dimensions are standard - 6.6 "(105 cm²). The resolution is low - HD+. Most likely 720x1612 or 720x1600 (267 ppi).

Everything is fine with the battery. Classic 5000 mAh. There is no fast charging.

The cameras are modest. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP. The main rear - 13 MP. What is the second rear camera is not specified. Depth sensor or branded AI Lens.

The fingerprint scanner is located on the back. There are no NFC modules. But there is an ancient Micro-USB, that's the joy. Whether the fifth Wi-Fi is not specified. Rather yes than no.

The smartphone will go on sale at the end of the week. The price is ₹9499 (₽6930, $120). For the younger version of 3 + 64 GB, most likely, but this is inaccurate.
