Chances of getting news designs on smartphones succeeding low budget ones, are pretty much very slim. Everynow and then we see brands like Tecno reminising designs from other smartphones.

Much like the Tecno Spark 5 Pro, you will find a gradient pattern on the rear. On top this gradient pattern design, you will find a vertically arranged camera module, holding four cameras and an LED flash.
Also on the rear, you will find a rear mounted capacitive fingerprint sensor and the Tecno branding, which indicates its a Tecno smartphone.
