Infinix Mobility announced its Zero X series smartphones that come in three variants, the Infinix Zero X, Infinix Zero X Pro, and Infinix Zero X Neo. The phones are available for purchase in Egypt, and Nigeria as its first marketplace and will be made available to other African countries including; Kenya, Rwanda, Tunisia, Tanzania, Uganda, among others.
The Infinix Zero X series smartphones are the fourth set of phones the come has been released this year and made available starting with the Inifnix HOT 10 Play, Infinix HOT 10T, and Infinix NOTE 10s. Currently, all the first three sets of phones are available in Uganda, and the Zero X will be made available in the coming weeks.
It has not been easy for smartphone manufacturers to release new phones to the market since the outbreak of the Covid-19 Pandemic. However, Infinix Mobility under Transsion Holdings has tried to keep up with the market with new handsets.
From the looks of the product photos circulating around media of the Infinix Zero X phones, they have a rough/granite finish at the back. All the phones come in the same color options; Nebula Black, Starry Silver, Tuscany Brown, and Bahamas Blue.
The Infinix Zero X and Infinix Zero X Pro have an AMOLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz while the Zero X Neo has an IPS LCD display with an adaptive refresh rate of up to 90Hz. The Zero X and the Zero X Pro have the same display size of 6.67 inches with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The display size of the Zero X Neo is 0.11 larger with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels.
Under the hood, all three phones have the same chipset; the Mediatek Helio G95, processor; Octa-core (2×2.05 GHz Cortex-A76 & 6×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55), and GPU; Mali-G76 MC4. Looks like the company decided to somehow, speed up the performance of the phones. The phones also run on Google’s latest OS, Android 11 coupled with the XOS v7.6.
In terms of storage, the Zero X and Zero X Neo are available in only one storage; 128GB + 8GB RAM while the Zero X Pro is available in two storage options; 128GB + 8GB RAM, and 256GB + 8GB RAM. They all support a microSD card slot of up to 512GB in case the handset holder wishes to expand their storage. But with all the space available as well as the availability to use cloud storage, the default storage is enough.
Image and optics could be the best part of any phone. With the new Zero X phones, they have the same front-facing camera, a single 16 MP sensor that does shoot videos of up to 1080 (full HD) at 30 frames per second (fps). They all come with a triple rear camera setup with the same 8 MP, f/3.4 telephoto, and 8 MP, f/2.3 ultrawide sensors but different main/wide sensors. The Zero X has 64 MP, f/1.9, Zero X Pro has 108 MP, f/1.8, and Zero X Neo has 48 MP, f/1.8 main/wide sensors. The rear cameras can shoot videos up to 4K at 30 frames per second (fps). Being able to shoot videos in 4K is impressive and it could be one of the biggest upgrades Infinix has had to offer.
In terms of their battery life, the Zero X and Zero X Pro come with Li-Po 4500 mAh while the Zero X Neo comes with Li-Po 5000 mAh non-removable batteries. They support fast charging 45W, and as advertised can charge from 0-40% in 15 minutes. All use a USB Type-C 2.0.
The price and availability of the phones in Uganda have not been announced as yet but hopefully, the set of phones will be made available in the market in the coming week.
