Gen Z is the quintessential smartphone generation, especially since they own and use them at a much younger age than millennials. Some reports show that up to 79% of Gen Z can’t live without their smartphones, going as far as making a career out of being smartphone users.
Gen Z users are also more likely to use images and videos for communication over text or speech. This has created a niche for mobile-oriented content on apps like TikTok, FaceBook, Instagram, and YouTube, the latter three of which have copied TikTok’s short portrait videos formula. Gen Z dominates TikTok. 60% of TikTok users are Gen Z. Phones like the Tecno SPARK 10 are perfect for them because they have specialised cameras to get the best image and video quality at an affordable rate. Its advanced processor speeds and internal memory are also perfect for content creators.
TECNO has launched the brand new SPARK 10 series with the ultimate high-performance selfie phone with superior performance and a trendy design, perfect for Gen Zs.
The SPARK 10 Pro has the following features:
- Adjustable dual soft lights on the 32MP front camera
- MediaTek Helio G88 gaming processor
- 16GB (8GB+8GB extended RAM)
- 256GB ROM
It also comes equipped with a hard-wearing starry glass back panel for a great look and feel. This makes the SPARK 10 Series the ultimate high-performance selfie phone in its price range.
Why the SPARK 10 is great for Gen Z
The SPARK 10 Selfie Cam
The SPARK 10 Pro has an Ultra-Clear 32MP Front Camera with 4-in-1 HW Remosaic technology. It synthesizes the small pixel size of 0.8um into a bigger pixel size of 1.6um. The sensitivity of the pixel area is increased by 400%, which captures images with great detail and clarity.
The dual soft lights are in the front and rear cameras. The built-in Lux soft light has a flash that is anti-glare. It also has three adjustable levels to suit different lighting conditions. Overexposure is corrected by the Super Flashlight Algorithm, which automatically balances brightness between the subject and background. The SPARK 10 Series is a pocket-based lighting professional that accentuates any selfie taker’s beauty.
The Gaming Processor
The SPARK 10 Series is also perfect for gamers and creators with its high-performance processor. The SPARK 10 Pro has optimized performance with the MediaTek Helio G88—an octa-core processor with two Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs that can run at 2GHz. It also has a MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 and is supercharged by the GameTurbo Algorithm from TECNO. This enables quick responsive reactions with no lag. It provides smooth operation and an unmatched gaming and entertainment experience.
The RAM capacity of the entire SPARK 10 series is up to 16GB. However, the SPARK 10 Pro has 256GB ROM and 16GB RAM (8GB extended RAM). This enables users to run more apps at a faster rate and provides the smoothest experience in the history of the SPARK series.
The SPARK 10 series has an advanced 50MP AI camera supported by ASD mode and 3D LUT technology. This enables natural shots that are fully adapted to different skin tones. The Intelligent Beauty Mode delivers stunning portrait photos. The Super Night Filters, the Super Night Algorithm, and the dual flashlight in the SPARK 10 Pro improve night photography with clearer frames and pictures.
The SPARK 10 series also makes vlogging more fun with the Beauty Mode, AR stickers, HDR, and Bokeh effect. The unique cinematography mode can apply to all videos, which creates clear footage when filming daily life in various scenarios. The SPARK 10 Pro and SPARK 10 5G also have smart focus, meaning users never have to miss any moment, even sudden ones.
Starry Glass Panel
The innovations within the SPARK 10 series are encased in a striking design with a starry glass back panel. It’s glossy, smooth, comfortable, and natural to the skin. The dual cameras and smart flashlight form a flagship triple ring. In addition, the phone’s edges are flat for a premium, minimalist look. The devices come in Starry Black and Pearl White for the SPARK 10 Pro. Other Spark 10 models come in Meta Black, Meta Blue, Meta White, and Meta Green.
Ultra-High-Resolution Display and Battery
The 6.8” FHD is an optimally-sized large screen to expand user experience with the ultra-high-resolution display and DCI-P3 colour. They create an immersive, theatrical visual experience for users.
The SPARK 10 series models are supported by a 5000mAh battery and 18W fast-charging capability. This delivers a long battery life even when the phone is in heavy use.
The TECNO SPARK 10 Series, apart from the SPARK10C, also has the Android 13HiOS 12.6 for an advanced user experience.
The SPARK 10 Series has the following models:
- SPARK 10 Pro
