TECNO Mobile partners Google, 9mobile to unveil TECNO Spark 2 in Lagos

TECNO Mobile has released another smartphone, TECNO Spark 2 to the Nigerian market.

Business Hilights gathered that the device is the second version from the TECNO Spark series which is designed to fuse the computing ability of a high-end smartphone with top-of- the-line user experience of the latest Android GoTM from Google.

Speaking to newsmen at the launch of the Spark 2, the Marketing Manager, TECNO Mobile, Abel Huo noted that the launch of the hybrid smartphone was due to the success that came with the first Spark edition and the high demand from the end users.

He said we at TECNO Mobile are proud to say that, this is another great smartphone; this device is designed for productivity and style. It is not just another camera phone, but one that any smartphone lover with the desire to have an all-in-one tool, should have.

The TECNO SPARK 2 flaunts a 6-inch full HD screen display perfect for viewing photos, watching videos and gaming. The 6-inch display is squeezed into a small shell of 5.7mm making the device comfortable to hold.

On the camera department, the SPARK 2 offers a brighter camera than its predecessors. The device takes excellent photos even in low light conditions with its 8MP Front + 13MP Rear Bright Camera. The F/2.0 wide aperture enables more light to pass through the camera lens, thereby making selfie pictures clear even in low light conditions. The SPARK 2 also comes with an improvement in the storage capacity- with two variants of ROM and RAM.

The Spark 2 is powered by Google’s GOTM which is optimised to offer consumers lots of benefits including a smooth and fast experience for devices with 1GB of RAM or even less, and provide new and reimagined Google apps for example: Google Go, YouTube Go, and the Google Assistant for Android (Go edition) with enhanced data efficiency.

Teju Ajani, country manager, Android, Nigeria said “If you get a new smartphone, you expect it to be amazing. That’s why we are teamed up with Transsion through our Android Go program. Together we strive to give users a range of smartphones, such as TECNO Spark 2, that combine beautiful hardware with Google’s smartly designed software-from the latest Al powered innovations to the highest grade of security”.

As part of the partnership, 9Mobile will be extending amazing offers to customers who purchase the TECNO Spark 2. These customers will get 2GB instant bonus, plus 100% bonus on all purchased data plans for the first six months after purchase.
