The exquisite craftmanship of the Infinix Note 8 is filled with uniqueness and technological originality, with its Gem Cut back design for transparency and durability. Nice. Infinix unveiled the phone earlier this month —an excellent all-round smartphone model that is targeted at the mid-to-high end market segment.
As pointed out by Mr. Alex Chique, Infinix Mobility Brand Manager, the phone packs some of the latest technological innovation from the company to strengthen its deep insights into their target consumers’ real needs —delivering an overall enhanced experience in terms of looks, power and endurance.
“The Note 8 is ideal for elite users who are used to the elite lifestyle and all that it offers,” says Chique.
The phone is available in all Infinix shops & stores, dealers stores at a RRP of UGX782,000 and comes available in grey, blue and green color variants. Our review team got a blue handset for hands-on and an intensive review.
Inside the box, similar packaging to it predecessors, the phone appears on top. Its accessories including a data & charging chord, standard 3.5mm earphones, and a charging brick appear at the bottom. Including in the package are; screen guard, and a rubber phone casing.
The packaging is great. It is highly recommended to note the phone with a broken seal as it may be a counterfeit. If the seal is not broken in your presence at the time of purchase, it is recommended not to accept the phone.
