Here’s the Infinix NOTE 6

Infinix's latest NOTE device comes with an AMOLED display, triple back cameras, built-in AR features, and a Helio P35 chip

The new Infinix NOTE 6 will be launched anytime soon in Nigeria, and Uganda. As such, we can expect it to be available in Kenya soon for a recommended retail price of between Ksh. 17,500 and Ksh. 19,999. I’m thinking just about 18500 is right for the specs below.

From the specs, I can see a lot of similarity between the new NOTE 6 and the new TECNO Phantom 9 which we also expect to launch in the next few days locally. They have the same camera setup, the same Helio P35. They also both have an AMOLED display, though Infinix’s resolution maxes out at 720p while the Phantom 9’s is 1080p.

Last year’s NOTE 5 was an Android ONE device. And I really liked that. There’s no talk of that this year, and I am kind of disappointed. An Android ONE variant would be really good, and would also mean guaranteed faster updates to newer versions of Android.

I am not sure if there will be two variants: one with the PEN and one without. I think, given the promo video below, this year perhaps we’ll see a single version that features the PEN.

Here’s the official announcement video from Infinix’s Nigeria account:

These are the full specifications of the new Infinix Note 6. They will be updated incase any information may be wrong.

Infinix is marketing the new NOTE 6 as ‘THE GENIUS’ and that new X-PEN looks very S-PEN like….
