Tecno Spark 8P was launched in India on Thursday. The smartphone features a display with a waterdrop-style notch and a triple rear camera setup. It is powered by an octa-core MediaTek SoC and comes with a Memory Fusion feature that borrows some storage to use it as RAM in order to offer a stutter-free mobile experience. It packs a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W charging. The handset sits among the Tecno Spark 8C, Spark Go 2022, and Spark 8 Pro smartphones that have already made their debut in the country.

Tecno claims that the smartphone delivers up to 43 percent improvement in average time of launching various apps.
