Tecno Spark 20C Launched With iPhone’s Dynamic Island for $130

Tecno discreetly introduced the Spark 20C as its latest entry-level offering, featuring noteworthy elements such as a sizable battery and a 50MP main camera.

Design and Display

The Spark 20C boasts a 6.6” LCD with a 720p resolution and supports a 90 Hz refresh rate. The handset maintains a slim profile at 8.75 mm, characterized by its flat sides. The fingerprint resides on the side atop the power button.

However, the highlighting feature of the phone’s design is the Dynamic Island-like animation around the punch-hole selfie camera used for brief notifications.

Positioned alongside the square island on the rear, the 50MP main camera shares space with a secondary shooter labeled as the “AI Cam,” although its actual impact on improving shots may be limited. Meanwhile, the selfie camera, equipped with an 8MP sensor, is housed within a punch hole.
