Infinix has today added yet another budget phone to its growing lineup in India. The Note 5, however, is unlike any other smartphone the company has brought to the country before. The biggest highlight of the new Infinix Note 5 is that it comes with Android One which promises regular software updates and a clean build.
The other cornerstone of the Note 5 is its gargantuan 4,500mAh battery which Infinix says can last at least two days on a single charge. The best part of its battery, although, is not its sheer size. It’s the fast charging compatibility and the 18W fast-charger which comes bundled in the box. Infinix has also added a series of smart power management features to the software as we’ve seen on other phones. It remains to be seen how well the company’s claims translate in real life.
The Infinix Note 5 even features an all-glass exterior and a 5.99-inch tall screen with a resolution of 1080p unlike a few of its competitors which have a 720p panel. As for the specifications, the Infinix Note 5 is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P23 octa-core chipset, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of onboard storage which can be expandable through a dedicated MicroSD card slot. Dual-SIM and Dual-VoLTE support are present too.
The Infinix Note 5 carries a single camera sensor on the rear — a 12-megapixel f/2.0 lens with a large 1.25µm. On the front, there’s a 16-megapixel selfie snapper with an aperture of f/2.0 and a dual-LED soft flash as well. The camera software can also adjust several camera settings by detecting the scene you’re trying to click for both the front and back sensors. A fingerprint sensor is available as well on the rear. There are three color options to choose from — Ice Blue, Milan Black, Berlin Gray.
The base variant which has 3GB RAM and 32GB storage is priced at Rs 9,999, while the one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage costs Rs 11,999. It will be available exclusively on Flipkart starting August 31st.
