There is a 6.52-inch IPS LCD display on the phone that has a maximum resolution of 720*1,600 pixels. The screen-to-body ratio of the phone is 81.8%, meaning it has more bezels on the screen than its competitors on the market.
Tecno Spark 7T houses a 48MP dual camera on the back with quad-LED flash. The company claims the newly added AI lens on the back brightens the overall dark environment and helps to capture the pictures quickly. The rear cameras are accompanied by the quad-LED flash.
At the front, there is a single 8MP selfie camera which is accompanied by a dual-LED flash. Both cameras on the front and rear can record videos in 1080p at 30fps.
