Tecno, a sub-brand of Transsion Holdings, is known for its value-for-money smartphone offerings in India under its Spark and Camon series. Earlier this month, the brand had launched a new Spark series smartphone called the Tecno Spark 5 in Europe.

Apart from the punch-hole display, the TECNO Spark 5 has an attractive design, quad cameras, massive 5,000mAh battery and Android 10 as its key selling points. The company has now launched the smartphone in India.
