Capturing the perfect selfie can be challenging at times, especially when loadshedding hits. Or when the sun is going down and you want to capture special moments with family or friends to cherish forever. The quality of low light and night photography captured on mobile devices has progressed significantly in recent times, with companies introducing both hardware and software specs and features to make shooting superb selfies easier than ever before.
TECNO, an innovative technology brand with operations in over 70 global markets, is one such company at the forefront of mobile photography innovation, and its recently-launched-in-South-Africa smartphones (SPARK 10 Pro and SPARK 10C) have specs and features that are a testament to that.
A Stunning Selfie Setup
Both of these devices’ front and rear cameras have a Dual-LED flash setup with a three tier, adjustable flash intensity. This allows perfect photos to be taken even in light-scare situations, without blinding the subjects of your selfie masterpieces. A preview mode is also available, to see what the pictures will look like with the various flash levels. This industry leading, first-of-its-kind technology, which TECNO is at the forefront of, makes taking the perfect selfie effortless.
The 32-Megapixel front camera on the SPARK 10 Pro, with 4-in-1 HW Remosaic technology, is perfect for capturing those Instagram snaps in crystal clear detail. By synthesising the small pixel size of 0.8um into a bigger pixel size of 1.6um, the sensitivity of the pixel’s area is increased by 400%, which allows the camera to capture great details with even greater clarity. For SPARK 10C, users can take advantage of an 8-Megapixel selfie camera.
To ensure users will always get the perfect selfie, any overexposure is immediately corrected by the Super Flashlight Algorithm to achieve a balance of brightness between the background and the subject, while concealing user’s blemishes and accentuating their nautral beauty, no matter their skin tone. TECNO has been heavily investing in research through its TAIVOS Lab to make photography more inclusive for everyone.
All of this makes the SPARK 10 Series the lighting pro in your pocket when it comes to mobile photography.
For those group selfies, a wide-angle feature makes taking these a breeze, with no more battling to get people into the shot. If you prefer shooting videos rather than pictures, these can be shot on the SPARK 10 Pro’s front camera up to 1080p quality at 30 frames per second.
Other Top-Tier Features and Specs
Aside from an amazing selfie experience, TECNO SPARK 10 Series devices also boast other impressive features.
These include large storage capacity (256GB for SPARK 10 Pro, and 128GB for SPARK 10C), so you never run out of space on your device for all your stunning selfies; a MediaTek Helio G88 chipset powering the SPARK 10 Pro; a large LCD display (6.8-inch for SPARK 10 Pro, and 6.6-inch for SPARK 10C), perfect for viewing and experiencing all your favourite content and mobile games); a long-lasting 5000mAh battery (both devices); and Memory Fusion.
With Memory Fusion technology, the RAM capacity of the SPARK 10 Pro and SPARK 10C can be increased up to 16GB. This technology allows you to make use of unused read-only memory (ROM) and channel it to random access memory (RAM) operations. By allocating more storage to RAM, the Memory Fusion Technology enhances the device’s multi-tasking capacity, allows for seamless switching between applications that are running concurrently in the background, and stabilises the phone’s systems for more sustainable performance and longer battery life. No longer will you complain about lag when multitasking on your device (a necessity in the hectic world in which we live) or when you are playing your favourite high-intensity mobile game.
Alongside the SPARK 10 Pro and SPARK 10C, another smartphone recently launched in South Africa by TECNO is the SPARK GO 2023. This great choice boasts large storage capacity of 64GB, a 6.6-inch HD+ display, a large 5000mAh battery, Memory Fusion and a biometric fingerprint sensor.
