The Helio A22-powered device is already up for sale in select retail stores in India at the price of INR6,999, which is about $85.
Tecno Spark Go 2023 is a slight upgrade over its 2022 namesake. The Mediatek chipset is coupled with 3/4 GB RAM and 32/64 GB storage, although only the least powerful combo, 3/32 GB, is on sale.
Despite having Go in its name, the biggest improvement is that it skips the Android Go platform and goes to the big boys club with Android 12 and HIOS 12 on top. The screen is once again a 6.5” LCD with 720p resolution.
The battery is 5,000 mAh and supports 10W charging rates through the USB-C port. The Tecno India CEO said in a press release the phone’s main goal is to “bring distinguished features to first-time smartphone users”.
