Tecno has announced a new designer version of the Tecno Spark 9 Pro. Called the Sports Edition, it comes with a special design, made in partnership with Designworks, which is the innovation studio of the BMW group. The company states that the smartphone is aimed at young users with a taste for luxury and a “crush” on automobile products.
The Tecno Spark 9 Pro Sport Edition features an icy crystal design, with diamond cut edges in the back panel. The materials, colours, and finish were all chosen by Designworks and the design is heavily laden with crystal references, along with a hint of the BMW logo, at least in terms of the blue, white, and orange in the camera module.
“Working together with a company like Tecno is inspiring, as it gives us the opportunity to focus on another user experience – the phone. While there is a difference in scale, something phones and cars have in common is that they are extremely personal and are relied on daily by their users, and they are also a means of personal expression,” said Andre De Salis, Creative Director, Industrial Design at Designworks in a statement.
