Infinix Zero X Pro
great camera, great chipset – no choice. Unfortunately, this is the situation that most smartphone buyers face. Most smartphone designers opt for a faster chip-set on top of a capable camera when they have to reach the cost of medium distance.
This is not the case with the Infinix Zero X Pro, which was announced earlier today. We have a review, so expect a more detailed report soon – for today, here are our first impressions.
The first thing to say is that the 5x periscope. It is available on the Pro model, which will retail at around 3 320 retail, but it can also be found on the Vanilla Zero X and new, which will be cheaper.
The Pro also has a 108 MP main camera, the first for the Infinix. Of course, something like the Realme 8 Pro can give you a 108 MP camera around the $ 108 mark. The Redmi Note 10 Pro also has a pair of Motorola, Honors, and more.
But do you know what these phones have in common, plus price point and high-resolution main camera? Lack of any kind of telephoto camera never minds the 5x magnification. Of course, 108MP sensors work great at harmful 3x zoom 5x, is a laparoscope really necessary? We can answer that once we review.
It is a 1 / 1.52 “sensor that sits behind an f / 1.8 aperture and is optically stable (OIS). Infinix claims to have developed a system that combines OIS and electronics to achieve smooth results. Uses stabilization simultaneously. The camera app also has a night mode.
For completeness, the Zero X Pro has an 8 MP sensor (f / 3.4, 125 mm, OIS) and an 8 MP ultra-wide camera (f / 2.25). It covers 120º FoV and has autofocus, which sometimes leaves out the price model. This means that the ultra-wide camera doubles like a macro cam. Also, the front has a 16 MP camera with dual-LED flash, which you don’t often see. Overall, Infinix has chosen a fresh, intelligent camera setup, with no 2MP macro or depth sensors.
This phone (actually, all three Zero X models) is powered by the Helio G95. It’s not the fastest chipset around, it’s definitely no match for the Snapdragon 870, for example, the Poco F3. A photo that is not far to the north of $ 300. However, it has a 48 MP main camera and we’ll give you an idea of how many telephoto cameras it has.
Anyway, the unit in our office has 128 GB storage (UFS 2.2) and the option to get 256 GB. Which you may not need because there is a MicroSD slot. Keep in mind that UFS is fast, which is important for some usage matters. Quickly speaking, UFS 2.2 is between 8 and 80 faster than UFS 2.1 used in some other phones, in terms of performance (sequential writing gets the biggest boost).
The phone is equipped with 8 GB of RAM, as are its siblings. And the chipset is given the best chance to shine with a combination of the heat pipe and graphite sheet that dissipates heat.
The Pro model features a flat 6.67 ”AMOLED panel with a built-in fingerprint reader, 1080p + resolution, and 103 ٪ DCI-P3 coverage. It runs at a 120 Hz refresh rate and 240 Hz touch rate. To overcome that, Infinix had to use an extra chip to run the display – the company preferred cameras and screens to have a 5G chipset.
And charging too – the 4,500 mAh battery in this phone can reach 40% in just 15 minutes with a 45W charger. Yes, included. And there’s a wired headset to plug into the 3.5mm headphone jack, something you won’t see us writing about most Android flagships or iPhones.
Infinix even threw in a safety case. All of these things add up to a bill of lading, which in turn increases the final cost of the device. But the company targets emerging markets where consumers may not have a 45W charger.
And that’s why Infinix isn’t jumping into the 5G craze at first – many of the areas it covers won’t be 5G in the near future. The company has no plans to move to Western Europe or the United States, so it makes sense.
In terms of colorways, relatively standard silver (with dual glass backs), and Tuscany Brown are interesting options, replacing glass for fiberglass.
Our unit is the Nebula Black, which is the most visually interesting of the three options. It has two panes of glass on the back and a stained reflective layer that creates the image of a galaxy full of stars. Infinix is on an astronomy-more and more dedicated mode of the moon (homemade with Galileo engine) in our detailed review.
