Infinix has already made it crystal clear that its new Zero 5G model is on the way, and that it will be fighting for the title of “fastest 5G smartphone in the segment”. That’s what a previous set of teasers hinted and is also the title on the latest announcement banner.
There is however, a bit of a discrepancy between the two. The new banner has a “Launching on 14th Feb, 12 noon” text on it, whereas the old images advertised the February 8 date. Perhaps Infinix has decided to postpone the launch event by a few days. Alternatively, we could still see the phone officially announced on February 8 and sales kick-off on February 14. That’s the problem with using ambiguous verbs all of the time – a prevalent industry practice.
Infinix has already made it clear that speed and connectivity would be the central selling points for the upcoming Zero 5G. It is powered by the MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 5G chipset, which is not only a step up from the MediaTek G-series chips prevalent on Infinix phones up until now, but also promises to outdo many opponents, both in terms of performance, equipped with fast UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM, as well as connectivity, with 13 bands. Not bad for a first shot at a 5G model.
The Infinix Zero 5G was also spotted in the wild a few days ago, and some official looking renders have surfaced. Its overall design is very much similar to the Oppo Find X3.
The rumored specs of the device suggest, the Infinix Zero 5G will likely have a 6.67-inch 1080p display, with 120Hz refresh rate, a 48MP main camera, side mounted fingerprint scanner, a 5,000mAh battery with 33W charging and Android 11 covered by Infinix’ XOS on top.
