Earlier this month, the Infinix Zero 8 was spotted on Google’s Play Console listing with Helio G90T, 90Hz display, dual selfie camera and a 64MP quad-camera setup. The device has now made its official debut as the company’s second mid-range gaming smartphone in 2020.
The Infinix Zero 8 device is the latest offering from Infinix Mobile into the mid-range smartphone segment and can be said to be the reply to a lot of criticism from Infinix fans around the globe. It is a great improvement over the Zero 6 since the company skipped the Zero 7 and will deliver that top-notch performance fans have longed for.
There’s no doubt the Zero device is far superior to the Infinix Note 7 which launched in April with the Helio G70 gaming Soc and fans who already opted for the Note 7 may just ditch it for the Zero 8.
