TECNO Spark 2 is officially launched in Nigeria with Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition which makes it an upgrade to last years Tecno Spark. The device is a budget smartphone and that is translated in the specs so before making up your mind, you may wish to check Tecno Spark 2 Specifications to see what you are going for.
There is a big 6 inches display on Tecno Spark 2, a bigger battery, but it retains the 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage of its predecessor though on the plus side, it has Face unlock.
The software is another area where TECNO Spark 2 has an edge of the previous version as it runs Android 8 Oreo Go Edition. If you are not already familiar with the terminology, “Go Edition” means the software is optimised for budget smartphones with low resources.
Does that mean the phone runs pure Android OS and will get software updates from Google? No; it does not run pure Android OS, which is the best kind of Android for low-end smartphones. There is a layer of HiOS on it. As for software updates, we do not have an official confirmation of that.
Price Of Tecno Spark 2
