Design and Display
The design of the Tecno Spark 6 Air may look different from that of its more premium sibling, but it certainly isn’t an overall new design. It bears design elements that have been featured not just only on Android smartphone brands, but on other brands.
This design pattern is pretty much what has become accustomed to seeing on smartphones in this price range. It may not be stellar by general phone standards, but it can be considered a win-win for enthusiasts in search of smartphones in this range.
Upfront, you will find a 7 inch IPS LCD display with parameters that are pretty much the same as what we had on the standard Tecno Spark 6. It has a resolution of 720 x 1649, a density of 256 PPI. This display bears a tear-drop notch that houses a front-facing camera.
On the rear, we have got a dual-tone stripe pattern, on which you will find a square camera module bearing three cameras, an LED flash, and brief details on the camera setup.
Enthusiasts who decide to purchase the Tecno Spark 6 Air, will have three color options and they include Comet black, Ocean Blue, and Cloud White.
Comparing the cameras on the Tecno Spark 6 Air to the standard Spark 6 reveals that the Air has a less capable camera, which can be said to be a contribution to its less expensive price tag.
On the rear, we have a triple camera setup, as opposed to the quad-camera setup with more features on the standard Spark 6. This camera setup bears a 13MP primary camera with an aperture of F/1.8, a 2MP depth camera, and an AI camera.
Upfront, we have got an 8MP single camera housed in the drop notch in the display. This camera is supported by a Dual front flash system.
