Announcement. Tecno Spark Go 2023 is a slightly grown budget smartphone

Tecno has announced the Tecno Spark Go 2023 budget smartphone in India.

In general, smartphones called Spark Go have been released once a year since 2019. So this one is the fifth one.

The first, Tecno Spark Go 2019, was the smallest with a 6.1″ screen. The next three are
Spark Go 2020, Spark Go 2021 and Spark Go 2022 are practically twins. Identical screens, batteries, sets of cameras, amount of memory… Except that the appearance is slightly different.

Tecno Spark Go 2023 is still a little different.The screen has grown from 6.52″ (102.6 cm²) to 6.56″ (103.4 cm²). The resolution remains HD+ (presumably 720×1612, 269 ppi). The refresh rate is standard 60 Hz, but the sensor polling rate is higher - 120 Hz.

The chipset was left the same, MediaTek Helio A22. Those. in AnTuTu we are waiting for a hundred thousand points at best.

Memory. 3 or 4 GB operational, 32 or 64 GB permanent. Compared to 2 + 32 GB for its predecessors, progress is evident.

The battery has not changed - 5000 mAh. Charging speed - 10W.

The set of cameras is the simplest. 5 MP front, 13 + 0.08 MP rear. Here, by the way, compared to its predecessors, there is even a slight downgrade. For those, the front camera had a resolution of 8 MP.

The ancient Micro-USB has finally been replaced with Type-C. The fingerprint scanner was left on the back. But Wi-Fi suddenly became only single-band (unless, of course, this is not a typo).

NFC-module is not promised. But it is possible that it may appear in versions of the device for other countries.

There is no official information about the cost yet. If the leaks are to be believed, the smaller 3+32 GB version will cost ₹6,999 (₽5,850, $85.1) in India.

For comparison, the predecessor Tecno Spark Go 2022 2+32 GB is now sold in Russia on every corner for ₽5990 ($87.2).
