Infinix Zero 5G Will Be the Company’s First 5G Phone

Infinix Zero 5G

5G has been a hot topic in recent months, especially in Kenya as smartphone manufacturers and telcos rush to bring 5G to the country. The latest smartphone company to join the bandwagon is Infinix.

In July, we had a sitdown with Mike Zhang, Infinix’s Country manager and he talked about what the company was up to and what the future holds for Infinix right beyond smartphones. One key announcement he shared was that they were testing a 5G phone that was scheduled for launch later this year but looks like we could see a commercial device ready for sale later next year.

We now have details of this phone which according to TechArena 24 will be the Infinix Zero 5G.

This is interesting as Infinix recently launched the Infinix Zero X Pro which is their latest flagship device.

Infinix Zero 5G(X6815) will be the company’s first 5G smartphone will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor just like TECNO POVA 5G, TECNO’s first 5G smartphone.

It might ship with 8GB of RAM[with 3GB Extended RAM] and 256GB of onboard storage.

Infinix Zero 5G will have an AMOLED screen like the Zero X Pro and sport a 120Hz refresh rate with a tiny punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera.

An interesting feature is the main camera module on the Infinix Zero 5G. It looks like the one on the OPPO Find X3 which is OPPO’s flagship device.

Here’s how the unofficial render looks:

And here’s the OPPO Find X3 camera bump.

The design is similar but Infinix opts for a vertical layout of the lenses.

Other features we think the Infinix Zero 5G will have will probably be similar to the Infinix Zero X Pro such as the 108MP triple camera setup.

We are yet to know full specs and pricing and if it will launch in the country especially since Safaricom, Kenya’s leading telco is also planning to publicly roll out 5G some time next year.
