Infinix is an emerging smartphone manufacturer from China known for quality mid-range devices at affordable prices. The brand has launched its real flagship device Infinix Zero 5 at global launch event held at The Opus Dubai. The Zero 5 is a camera centric device using dual camera trend of 2017 to fully optimize user’s photography experience.
The Zero 5 follows a unibody metal design with dual camera setup on a black strip at the rear, resembling with Huawei P10 – the old trend. Not to mention, the camera bump is gone now and the entire strip sits flush with the rest of the device. On the front, there is a large 5.98 inch Full HD LTPS LCD display with no bezelless features. So you’ll have to deal with a larger overall footprint, given the massive screen size.
The Infinix Zero 5 is a dual SIM supported device by default and runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat with Infinix’s XOS skin on the top. Powering the Zero 5 is an octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. There is a dedicated microSD card slot included as well. The Pro model of the phones comes with 128GB of inbuilt storage.
As mentioned earlier, Infinix has put a lot of emphasis on the shooting experience with dual camera setup featuring dual 12+13 MP rear cameras. The 12MP sensor is a Sony IMX386 big pixel lens with a 1.25-micron pixel size. The second lens is a Samsung S5KM3 telephoto lens with 1-micron pixel size. This setup gives an optical zoom of 2x along with a digital zoom of up to 10x. On the front is a 16 MP selfie camera with a beauty mode and artificial bokeh effect.
Another remarkable feature with the Zero 5 is the powerful battery source it brings. There is a large 4,350 mAh battery with xCharge fast charging tech. It comes with an 18 W charger out of the box to make things easier.
