Spark 3 is the latest version of the Tecno Mobile's Spark Series, and it's the successor to the last year Tecno Spark 2. The Spark phones are known for their classy design, trendy specs and most especially, their affordable price.

Therefore, Tecno Spark 3 also maintain the reputation of the earliest Spark phones with its up-to-date specs, trendy design and affordable price. Meanwhile, Tecno also releases Spark 3 Pro, along with the Spark 3. And despite having the same specifications with the Tecno Spark 3, Tecno Spark 3 Pro is fitted with 32GB internal storage and it also supports 4G (LTE) network.

Premium Design & Affordable Price.
It should be noted that the Tecno Spark 3 and the last year's Spark 2 share almost the same internal components, in fact, the main differences between the two lie in their physical appearances. In other words, the latest phone has a more beautiful and distinct design, for instance, Tecno Spark 3 has a bigger 6.2-inch notched display with trendy 19:9 aspect ratio, which give the new phone its overall premium look.

Also, while the 1GB RAM variant (KB7) of the new phone has a single back camera, the 2GB RAM variant (KB7J) is fitted with a dual-lens back camera.
Although, like i mentioned earlier, Tecno Spark 2 and the Spark 3 might have shared similar internal components, the 2GB variant of the new phone offers better processing power and it also features the latest Android 9.0 (Pie) Operating System.

Still, like Tecno Spark 2, Tecno Spark 3 also comes with a plastic finish, with option of 4 colours, i.e. Champagne Gold, Midnight Black, Aqua Blue and Bordeaux Red.

Furthermore, like the earlier model, the Tecno Spark 3 also comes with a rear mounted fingerprint reader and it also support only 3G network. Nonetheless, if you really desire 4G (LTE), you might want to consider the Pro version of the new phone i.e., Tecno Spark 3 Pro.
The price of the Tecno Spark 3 depends on the amount of RAM or configuration (variant); the price of the Spark 3 (KB7) i.e. 1GB RAM variant, is currently 31,500, while that of the KB7J, the 2GB RAM variant, is now 34,500.

NOTE: lf you're looking for an alternative phone, around that price, that also has similar design, screen size (with notch) and identical specifications, you might want to check out Infinix Hot 7. Infinix Hot 7 also offers better 4000mAh battery compare to the 3500mAh battery capacity of the Tecno Spark 3, though, Hot 7 doesn't support 4G LTE too.

6.2-inch Notched Display: Different from the regular screen shape of the Tecno Spark 2, Tecno Spark 3 features notch at the top of its bigger 6.2-inch display. The notch beautifies the new phone's display  and also gives it more screen real estate.

Meanwhile, like that of the Spark 2, Tecno Spark 3 display is also an IPS-LCD one, and it also features an HD+ resolution. However, instead of having 18:9 screen aspect ratio, the latest phone features 19:9 aspect ratio.
And it's the 19:9 aspect ratio that makes the HD+ resolution of the new phone to have 1500x720 pixels, instead of the 1440x720 pixels of the Spark 2 display

The 1500x720 resolution on the 6.2-inch display also means that the new phone's screen has a pixel density of 268ppi, just like that of the Spark 2. In other words, despite its bigger screen and slighly different resolution, Tecno Spark 3 display still has the same sharpness as that of the Spark 2.

Performance and Storage
The new phone comes in two variants, i.e. 1GB and 2GB RAM variants, meanwhile, these two variants also have different processing power and different Android O.S.

In other words, both variants of the new Spark 3 features MediaTek chipset, but!, while the 1GB RAM variant of the new phone has MTK6580 1.3GHz, Quad-Core processor, the 2GB RAM variant is fitted with better MTK6761 2.0GHz, Quad-Core processor.

Also, the 1GB RAM variant of the new phone comes with Android 8.0 (Oreo) Go Edition, while the 2GB RAM Version, on the other hand, is pre-installed with the latest Android 9.0 (Pie) O.S.

Concerning their built-in storages, both the 1GB and 2GB RAM variants of the Tecno Spark 3 come with the same 16GB internal storage space. Meanwhile, there is an option of 32GB internal storage space for the Spark 3 Pro though, just like in the previous Spark 2 Pro.
And as usual, the internal storage of the new phone, can also be expanded, through MicroSD Card.

Front and Back Cameras: Like the Tecno Spark 2, Tecno Spark 3 also comes with an 8-MP Selfie camera; which is place on the screen-notch of the new phone, along with the speaker grille and LED flash.

The Back camera set up on the new phone also depends on the variants. The 1GB RAM variant has a Single-lens, 13MP back camera, just like one on the back of the Tecno Spark 2, therefore you should expect similar picture clarity.

However you'll find a dual-lens camera on the back of the 2GB variant of the Tecno Spark 3, and this dual-camera comprises of 13MP telephoto lens and 2MP Wide Angle lens.
This Dual-Camera, mainly on the 2GB variant, gives the new phone's buyers the privilege of enjoying Wide Angle photos.

Same Battery Capacity
And finally, both of the new phones also come with the same battery capacity as that of the Tecno Spark 2, i.e. Tecno Spark 3 is fitted with a non-removable 3500mAh battery.

This shows that the battery capacity of the Spark 3 is less than that of its competitor, Infinix Hot 7; which has similar screen size and specifications, yet, offers 4000mAh battery.

Although Tecno Spark 3 battery life might not be that satisfactory, the Android Go Edition will optimize the battery life and make sure you get more hours from your new phone with normal usage.
