Over the past year, a new smartphone contender has been attempting to make waves in the mid-range and budget space. Infinix is set on changing your perception of what a phone should be capable of, but until now, its phones have been lacking something rather major.
That’s all changing now, thanks to the Infinix Zero 5G, as this is the company’s first 5G-capable smartphone. The Zero 5G features a 6.78-inch display, complete with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Powering the phone is MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage via microSD.

On the front of the phone, hidden in a hole-punch cutout, is a 16MP selfie camera, while the back of the Zero 5G houses a triple camera setup. This is headlined by a 48MP wide-angle lens capable of utilizing 30x “ultra-zoom” along with a 13MP 2x telephoto lens and 2MP depth sensor.
Other features of the Infinix Zero 5G include a display that reaches 500 nits of peak brightness, along with a 5,000mAh battery. This seems to be the norm in larger phones, and Infinix has paired the larger battery with 33W fast wired charging speeds.
“Infinix is setting a strong course in today’s fast-growing marketplace and providing innovative, yet high performance 5G technology that is more attainable to users through the new ZERO 5G smartphone,” stated Charles Ding, Deputy Product Director of Infinix Mobility. “Our innovation gives users a smartphone with better performance from a slimmer and stylish design that includes every key technology feature they are looking for in a 5G device that offers the most bang for its buck within its price range.”
If the design looks a bit familiar, it’s likely because it’s so similar to the Oppo Find X3 Pro that was released last year. Infinix calls this its “Uni-Curve” design, which is ergonomic and more comfortable to hold. Along with the sleek curves, the Zero 5G makes use of a composite material on the back that looks like glass, but adds to the comfortability of the phone when using it.
Pricing has yet to be revealed for the Infinix Zero 5G, but the company states that it will be shared at a later date, and will be market-dependent.
