Infinix Mobile has welcomed three new high-end devices into its ‘zero series’ portfolio – the Infinix Zero X, X Pro and X Neo. The phones come with interesting new features, a powerful chipset, large storage and are the company’s first trio to feature periscope lenses.
The periscopes lens on the Zero X series is backed by the company’s proprietary Galileo Engine that allows for capturing high-resolution images of the moon with smartphones. Aside from the periscope lenses, the Zero X series also share the same chipset memory options.
The Infinix Zero X and X Pro feature a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. The Zero X Neo, however, ups for a larger 6.78-inch LCD display with a lower 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate.
The Zero X series also takes design inspiration from the iPhone 12 and the LG Nexus 4. The Zero X series uses a flat frame similar to the iPhone 12 and a rear design similar to that of the LG Nexus 4. The combination gives you not only a good finish but a good grip on the devices as well.
In the camera department, the three models use different camera configurations. Infinix Zero X Pro leads the pack with a 108MP sensor with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The base model Zero X features a 64MP sensor (with OIS), while the Zero X Neo packs a 48MP camera with no OIS feature.
All three devices share the periscope modules with an 8MP sensor and 8MP ultrawide (120º) cameras that double as macro shooters and are equipped with 5x optical and 60x digital magnification. Finally, the trio houses a 16MP selfie camera on the front with a dual-LED flash.
The fast processing and high-resolution photos are all possible thanks to the MediaTek Helio G95 (a 12nm chipset with two Cortex-A76 cores (2.05GHz) and a Mali-G76 MC4 (900MHz) ) and MediaTek’s Intelligent Display chipset onboard. 8GB of RAM is present on all three devices with 3GB of Extended RAM. Although the Helio G95 is not bad the Dimensety 1000 plus would have been a much better choice.
The Pro model comes in two storage options, 128GB and 256GB UFS 2.2 storage. The other two, however, are equipped with 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage. The trio runs the Android 11 OS and XOS 7.6 skin on top.
The Infinix Zero X and X Pro are equipped with a faster-charging technology – a 45W fast charging to fuel the 4,500 mAh batteries on both devices from 0% to 40% in just 15 minutes (certified by TÜV). The Zero X Neo on the other hand uses a 5,000 mAh capacity and 18W charging (which bears a TUV Rheinland certification).
Infinix Zero X, X Pro and X Neo Pricing And Availability
The Infinix Zero X series will be available in Nigeria, Thailand, Indonesia, Egypt and other regions and pricing will start around the $300 mark. The base model will come in Black and Silver, the Neo in Black, Silver and Bahamas Blue while the Pro model will be available in Nebula Black, Starry Silver and Tuscany Brow colour options.
There are no words on whether the devices will be made available to Western Europe or the US yet.
Alongside the Zero X series device, Infinix also launched two TWS headsets – the Infinix X220 and XE25. The XE20 feature a low-latency mode that drops to just 60 ms, they have 10 mm drivers with a composite diaphragm. The XE25 switches to a graphene diaphragm and boasts an impressive total playback time of “over 100 hours” (with an LCD on the charging case to keep track of the battery).
