The model has 2GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up 128GB via SD card.

On the camera department, the Spark 8 has a single 8-megapixel selfie lens on the front with dual LED flash. While a set of two lenses are used on the rear, of which the primary snapper is a 16-megapixel lens pegged with a secondary AI depth sensor and four LED lights.
