CHINESE mobile phone manufacturer TRANSSION Holdings announced Wednesday that its latest product, the SPARK 5 Pro smartphone, will be available in the Philippines starting Saturday. 

The company’s premium smartphone brand TECNO Mobile said the device will be available at the TECNO Mobile Shopee Store at P5,999 starting Aug. 15.

“You can enjoy a Shopee Flash Sale discount of P1,000 with voucher code GADGETZONE8 and get the SPARK 5 Pro on Aug. 15, for only P4,999,” TECNO Mobile said in a statement.

The new Chinese smartphone is equipped with a 13-megapixel (MP) real AI artificial intelligence quad camera and an 8-MP front camera. 

“The cameras at the back consist of a primary camera, a camera that captures depth of field, AI lens for edge detection in portraits, face recognition, and color profile enhancements as well as a macro lens for photographing small subjects at very close distances,” the company said.

The smartphone offers a wide range of user customization as it operates on HiOS, which also comes with applications that allow users to free up memory, freeze applications, and limit data accessibility to applications, among others.

The cheap smartphone comes with a 5000mAh battery. The company described the device’s 6.6-inch dot-in display screen as “massive” and “very elegant.”

“With an industry leading 90.2% perfect screen ratio and a screen resolution of 720*1600 HD, users will have an immersive display that will transform their experience,” it said.

The device comes in two color options: Ice Jadeite and Seabed Blue. Its backing is made of glassy polycarbonate material. — ALB
