This is the year many mid-range smartphones companies will launch their first 5G devices. 5G hasn’t yet gone mainstream across the world. However, many countries have telcos who’ve either made plans to launch 5G networks, or who’ve already launched theirs with significant coverage.
Infinix – a smartphone brand under the Transsion Company – is expected to soon announce their first smartphone with 5G support. The official name isn’t yet known. But we can expect it to fall under the company’s Note or Zero-series. We could even see a whole new line-up.
According to XDA Developers – the source of the leaks and the photos – the phone will feature:
- Three rear cameras
- What appears to be an LCD display and
- Infinix 5G branding at the back.
TECNO, a company that’s also under Transsion, already launched its first 5G smartphone. The device is known as the TECNO Pova 5G. It seems the new Infinix device will borrow a lot from TECNO.
Infinix 5G phone expected specs:
- MediaTek Dimensity 900.
- 6.6-inch, 120Hz Refresh rate display.
- 8GB RAM.
- 128GB or 256GB storage.
- 48MP main camera.
- 16MP selfie camera.
- Android 12 out of the box.
- 5000mAh battery.
The Dimensity 900 is a powerful chip. It is present in the amazing OPPO Reno6 5G, and is very capable both in speed, and battery life.
It isn’t clear yet when we will see the Inifnix 5G device. We are also not sure if it’ll come to the Kenyan market. If it does, it’ll be interesting to see how Infinix market it.
Safaricom, the only telco to have announced 5G in Kenya, has been pretty untruthful about their 5G rollout. We still can’t access or use the network, so companies with 5G devices can’t push those 5G capabilities when marketing their devices.
What are you looking forward to with the Infinix 5G device?
