Rumours and leaks have trended on the internet the past few weeks and we’re finally going to see it in the flesh as Infinix is set to launch the Zero 5G early next week on Valentine’s.
In a sitdown with Mike Zhang, Infinix’s Country manager early last year, he shared with us that they were working on bringing 5G smartphones to its lineup of devices and it looks like the Zero 5G will kickstart the rollout.
Infinix Zero 5G will be powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 chipset coupled with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM[with 3GB Extended RAM] and 256GB of onboard storage[UFS 3.1].
Infinix Zero 5G opts for the 5G powered Dimensity processor which will be a huge upgrade over the Mediatek G series that power the company’s other devices. For example, the Zero X Pro, the company’s flagship device runs on MediaTek G96.
Infinix says that will support up to 13 5G bands and is marketing it as the “fastest 5G smartphone in-segment”
Other rumoured specs of the Infinix Zero 5G include a 1080p 120Hz 6.67″ screen, a 48MP main camera, a side-mounted fingerprint reader and a 5000mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging.
We may also see a 16MP punch-hole selfie camera.
Sadly, it will ship with Android 11 with XOS 7.6.
Infinix is launching the Zero 5G in India on 14th February and we may see a local launch later after that.
It’ll be interesting to see how the 5G space is taking shape in the country and consumers will have a variety of devices to choose from as OEMs launch 5G powered devices in the country while telcos like Safaricom continue bringing their 5G network to more locations in the country.
