When it comes to design, the Spark 2 Pro looks exactly like its little sibling. It has a Plastic back and a Metal frame, both of which was built to make the device very slim and sleek. Of course, we couldn’t help but notice the additional rear camera, making it two cameras at the back.
If you’re not into Face IDs, then the fingerprint scanner is at its usual position for fast and quick access. The device measures 7.8mm in thickness and will also feel very light as well. It’ll be available in Black and Gold colours.
Just like the Spark 2, it comes with the same full view display with extremely tiny narrow bezels. This will offer taller display in landscape mode when you compare to the first Spark smartphone, this is quite an improvement. For a budget device, you get enough screen than bezels.
The massive 6-inch HD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is simply stunning, the details are pretty simple. The screen boasts of 720 x 1440 pixels in resolution and 268 pixels per inch density, making the details on the screen clear enough, with a 2.5D curved glass on top.
