We haven’t been short of smartphone launches for the past couple of months and Infinix is no exception. They launched their flagship device, the Zero 5 in Dubai and boy it hasn’t disappointed our expectations.
The Zero 5 will come in two storage configurations. While the standard Zero 5 has 64GB of Storage, the Plus model comes off with 128GB but the rest remain unchanged under the hood. The new addition however is USB -Type C to Infinix’s flagship line that has been a no show for quite sometime.
Under the the hood
Infinix also introduces a dual camera set up on its Zero 5. A 12MP wide angle lens and a 13MP telephoto lens plus a 16MP selfie shooter, a 5.98Inch Full HD screen (1920×1080),6GB of RAM, XOS 3 atop Android 7.0 Nougat and is powered by Mediatek’s Helio P25 with a massive battery juice of 4350mAh. It also has a fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication at the back.

It plays within the same league as Tecno’s Phantom 8 though it dwarfs the latters battery but we can only tell the difference in experience between the two devices. The Zero 5 is expected to launch here within the coming weeks in various Infinix branded outlets for around UGX 1,200,000 – UGX 1,400,000.
So much emphasis has been put on the term #PortraitMaster judging by the marketing communique going around, so we anticipate Portraits to be an integral part of the Zero 5 or Zero 5 Plus therefore the dual cameras better something.
