Infinix Zero 5 Announced with Dual Cameras and Large Battery

Infinix has unveiled its latest and greatest smartphone yet, the Zero 5. The flagship phone was announced at an event in Dubai.

The Infinix Zero 5 follows the dual camera trend of 2017 with mid-range specifications in what looks like the complete package.

Design and Display

The Zero 5 follows a unibody metal design language that feels oddly familiar. That’s because the back of the phone features dual cameras on a black strip, reminiscent of the Huawei P10 or the Nexus 6P of old. In the current iteration, the camera bump is gone and the entire strip sits flush with the rest of the device.

It features a large 5.98 inch Full HD LTPS LCD display. There is no bezelless screen here which means you’ll have to deal with a larger overall footprint, given the massive screen size.

Internals and Storage

Powering the Zero 5 is an octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. There is a dedicated microSD card slot included as well. The Pro model of the phones comes with 128GB of inbuilt storage.

It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with Infinix’s XOS skin and the company promises one major OS update for the phone.

It’s a dual SIM phone by default.

Cameras

This time, Infinix has put a lot of emphasis on the shooting experience. The flavor of the year, dual cameras, make an appearance here and the Zero 5 features dual 12+13 MP rear cameras. It’s a wide-angle, telephoto combo with 2X optical zoom and a portrait mode.

On the front is a 16 MP selfie camera with a beauty mode and artificial bokeh effect.

Battery and Price

This will please everyone. Infinix Zero 5 has a large 4,350 mAh battery with xCharge fast charging tech. It comes with an 18 W charger out of the box to make things easier.

Currently the phone is only available in India at a price of Rs. 17,999 (around Rs. 29,000 in Pakistani Rupees). Once the phone launches in Pakistan, you can expect the price to be in the same ballpark.

      Dont listen to Abdul Wahab. I have seen some comparison videos of Oppo f5 and zero 5 and zero 5 seems to capture sharper images so camera might be good.
      I dont know if the phone got stabilization of videos because shaky cam can be a deal breaker.

      • Check Mate 10 Lite Video & Oppo F5 (Comapare) Why U Compre Infix (Heat & Burn Issue)

    • Muhammad Abrar Ali

      go for mi A1 u will get Pure Stock Android and u will get 3 Major OSes and u r getting Better Hardware SnapDragon Processor

      MTK is poor in real life performance

      So Mi A1 is the Best in Rs 30k

    • Syed Talal

      Wait. We’ll have a full review up within the next two weeks.

  • 6GB RAM Wo Bhi 30K Main Kahi Ye (Pentium 3 Wala SDR Ram Lagta hai )p

    • AbdulB1

      30k in uae only

  • wOw, 6 GB RAM is such price. All the other specs also seem really impressive.
