TECNO Spark 6 Air Philippines Price is PHP 4,690 - Here Are Its Specs, Features, and Actual Unit Photos

Hotshot international handset maker TECNO Mobile has just released a new Android smartphone in the Philippines -- and this fresh model is ideal for Pinoy consumers who are a bit tight on budget but are now thinking about finally upgrading their entry-level phone.

TECNO Spark 6 Air is priced at only PHP 4,690 and it already comes with several key features that make it a great-value-for-money purchase.

Before I talk about this device's main selling points, allow me to share with you these quick unboxing photos.

TECNO Spark 6 Air comes in this striking yellow-and-light-blue box that frankly looks very eye-catching. This color combination also makes it appear quite unique compared to the packaging of the brand's main competitors in the market.

What I have here is the version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of Internal Storage. Our friends from TECNO have yet to disclose if they will release other variants of this model in the future.

The smartphone's technical specifications are clearly written at the bottom of the box so the buyer knows exactly what he or she can enjoy on the device.

Lifting the box's cover, we are greeted by the handset wrapped in this plastic sheet, which shows images of Manchester City Football Club's players well as a list of the four key features of the handset, which I'll talk more about in a bit.

The complete TECNO Spark 6 Air official retail package includes the handset itself, the user guide, the 12+1 months warranty card, the metal pin for ejecting the SIM card tray, the travel charger, the micro-USB charging cable, a wired headset, and a free soft gel case so you won't have to buy one separately.

Alright! Now, let's take a closer look at the TECNO Spark 6 Air.

Turning on the device for the first time, we can instantly appreciate one of its main selling points which is the massive 7-inch HD+ Dot-Notch IPS LCD display.

This crisp and brilliant screen is large enough to deliver an enjoyable and compelling visual experience when watching videos, playing games, reading blogs, viewing vlogs, or even just checking your social media accounts. It also makes thumb-typing on the touchscreen a lot easier and faster.

Above the display, there's a small notch housing the handset's 8 MegaPixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies. This shooter is powered by TECNO's own beautification software that gives you self-portraits that are ready for sharing on social media without the need for editing.

Another highlight of the TECNO Spark 6 Air would have to be its Triple Rear Camera module that's made up of a 13-MegaPixel f/1.8 AutoFocus main camera that's the best of the bunch for daily point-and-shoot photography and low-light performance, a secondary 2-MegaPixel Depth Sensor enabling portrait mode for that luscious background blur behind subjects to make each shot look for interesting, and a tertiary AI Camera that - I think - helps figure out what the subject is for the imaging software to apply the ideal exposure settings.

As you see in the photo above, the camera module comes with a Quad-LED Flash that's powerful enough to ensure that your shots are well-lit even in situations or settings with very little to no ambient light.

For those who are into recording videos for Youtube, Facebook, or TikTok, TECNO Spark 6 Air's main camera at the back and front-facing cam can shoot up FullHD videos at 30 frames per second, which is good enough for consumption on larger screens. As an added treat, however, the smartphone can also record Slow-Motion 480p videos at 180 frames per second that can be useful for those who want to come up with more creative content.

As for the handset's build, the shell is crafted from polycarbonate but the high-gloss finish and metallic sheen give the device an air of luxury and sophistication. Frankly, this phone looks and feels more expensive than it actually is.

Like what you can see in these images, the volume up and down keys as well as the power button are located in the right panel while the "ejectable" tray containing the SIM card slots and the dedicated microSD card slot is found on the left side.

At the back, we can see TECNO Spark 6 Air's beautiful 2.5D curvature that makes it easy to hold as well as the gorgeous design pattern that appears to gleam as light hits it.

Also, at the back, we see the rear-mounted Fingerprint Scanner that can work alongside Facial Recognition and the usual pattern and passcode unlock procedures to add a veritable layer of privacy and protection for the user.

The connectivity features of TECNO Spark 6 Air include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 4G LTE-A, and Bluetooth 5.0. The phone even comes with "Bluetooth Audio Share" that lets you play your favorite songs on multiple Bluetooth-enabled devices and speakers around your home for a more enjoyable and immersive audio experience.

Under the hood, TECNO Spark 6 Air runs its HiOS 6.2 UI customized Android 10 operating system with a 12nm 1.8 GHz Octa Core MediaTek Helio P22 processor that's good enough to provide a smooth and lag-free experience when running light applications and games.

As I've noted earlier, this chipset is complemented by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can easily be expanded using the dedicated microSD card slot.

I think this set of internal hardware is more than good enough given the price of TECNO Spark 6 Air. I mean, while we can't call this model a "gaming beast", it's certain no "push-over" when it comes to what it can deliver in its price bracket.

For me, though, the most attractive feature of the TECNO Spark 6 Air (apart from its large screen) would be its very big 6,000 mAh Li-Po battery.

This ginormous, high-capacity pack easily ensures more than 24 hours of uptime coming from a full charge. Heck, if you're not really a power user or if you just use your smartphone mainly for chatting, updating social media accounts, or browsing photos, I believe this battery can even last for three days straight until the next charge.

I think this is great for those who hate always carrying a large powerbank in their bag or pocket just to make sure that their handset won't run out of juice in the middle of the day.

Oh, and another thing, this huge battery also supports 18W Fast Charging -- so you can spend more time using TECNO Spark 6 Air to do the things you love like shooting TikTok videos or snapping selfies and less time plugging it to an electrical outlet.
