Infinix Note 7 is the company’s latest device in the Note series set to succeed the Infinix Note 5 that was released in late June 2018.
The Infinix Note 7 brings the latest tech, bumps up the specs from its older sibling and refreshing design for the Note line.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Infinix Note 7
The Infinix Note 7 comes with a 6.95″ Infinity-O display with a resolution 720 by 1640 pixels. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass.
The phone runs on Android 10 and XOS 6.0. Kudos to Infinix for complying with Google to launch a new device with a relatively new Android operating system, unlike its previous trends. TECNO, its sibling company has also followed suit with the launch of TECNO Camon 15 that rocks Android 10 too. Transsion smartphone brands have always launched new devices with an older operating system when the new Android version has been available for months.
Under the hood, you get an octa-core Mediatek Helio G70 (12 nm) processor with Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU. There are two RAM and Storage options – 4 or 6GB and 64/128GB of onboard storage respectively which you can expand with MicroSD card.
The Infinix Note 7 rocks different colours including Apple Green, Milan Black and Med Blue.
Photography is handled by a quad rear set up in a circular camera bump and an in-display selfie camera. The main camera setup includes a 48 MP f/1.8(wide), 2 MP f/2.4 (macro), 2 MP f/2.4, (depth) and a 2 MP, f/1.8, (dedicated video camera) that will only be available in 128GB stoarage/6GB RAM model.
A 16MP front-facing camera sits in the Infinity-O display just like the one featured on the Infinix S5 launched last year, although it was a 32MP selfie camera.
For biometrics, you get a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and face unlock. For entertainment, the Infinix Note 7 sports DTS Audio processing dual speakers to complement the immersive display.
A 5000mAh battery powers up the phone. The Infinix Note 7 also features support for 18W fast charging. It’s worth noting that there’s no USB-C port – you get the regular micro-USB charging port. Infinix needs to catch up with the trends.
