Infinix’s Next Smartphone Could Spot an 18:9 Display and a Snapdragon Processor (Updated)

2

There’s been a lot of 18:9 talk being mentioned everywhere in the recent days and possibly, you could be getting tired of it but it’s actually a good thing to see companies adopt the new display ratio, inevitably shrinking down the bezels and offering consumers more display area.

The latest company said to be joining the road to bezel-less town is Infinix, around a month after sibling TECNO did the same with the Camon CM. Thanks to Geekbench, we have a glimpse of what we should be expecting from Infinix this year.

Three Infinix phones have made an appearance online, bearing the code NUMBER X604, X606 and X573. Here is what we know about these devices so far:



X604

The phone first made an appearance on January 15, 2018 and it comes packed with:

  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • An MT6763 (Helio P23) Processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 4G and VoLTE Support

X606

The phone first made an appearance on December 20, 2017. It looks to be like an entry-level smartphone by looking at the specifications such as lack of 4G support. Interestingly, this is the phone that could pack an 18:9 aspect ratio display maxing out at a resolution of 720P. Other specs include:

  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • An MT6580 Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • No 4G support

X573


The phone first made an appearance on December 4, 2017. This device is an interesting one since it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor, making us assume that it could either be the Hot 5 Pro or the S3 Pro variant. The device comes packed with:

  • Android 8.0 Oreo
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
  • 3GB RAM

UPDATE (7 Feb. 2018): We have confirmation that the X573 is the Infinix Hot S3 as the device was launched in India on February 6, 2018; featuring an 18:9 5.65″ display, 4000mAh battery, 20MP selfie camera, 13MP main camera and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Processor.

We could not get display sizes from Geekbench, thus it is even more difficult to know which lineup these phones belong to, having that Infinix have the most confusing code numbers ever. However, seeing that Infinix has already started teasing the Hot 5, we’re sure one of these devices is it.

  1. Oh my God Infinix! Why won’t you let the mt 6580 die in peace! Let it go! 5 generations of the hot line up and now the smart line up too! We have the mt 6737 now please! But, we have Android go now, I would speculate that the phone with the mentioned chip is probably the hot 6 or more likely the smart 2. I surely hope to see Android go on this device. The hot 6 will probably have a 5.7″ HD+ display judging by the trend now. This device would compete with it’s cousin the camon CM.
    They have already launched the infinix S3 highlight: a 5.6″ HD+, 20MP selfie Camera, and the snapdragon 430, 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB in India.The device actually exists. It’s only a matter of time before they launch it locally.(hopefully). If all this were to happen, this would mean the next hot note could get the helio p23 mt 6763 and probably a 6″ or 6.2″ FHD+ display. That would be awesome., Especially the chipset since the note too has been stuck with the 6753 from gen 2 to gen 4. This would probably compete with the oppo A83 around 20k.
