Infinix Zero X Pro: Infinix almost got it right, well almost.

Infinix has announced the launch of the latest iteration of it’s Infinix Zero flagship line up. There are three devices here and they are aptly named the Infinix Zero X Pro, Infinix Zero X and Infinix Zero X Neo.



The Infinix Zero X Pro is the premium device in this line up and has the best specs. The other two are the vanilla Infinix Zero and the Infinix Zero Neo.

The Infinix line up has been steadily improving for years as the company looks to be able to stake a claim for a share of the upper midrange market. Now despite all of this, is the Zero line looking for good enough for you to part with your hard earned cash?

Lets find out…


Infinix Zero X Pro, Zero X and Zero X Neo


Infinix Zero Neo

The Infinix Zero Neo is the most affordable device here and as a result has the least specs in this lineup. But that does not mean that it is a bad device. Not in the slightest. It houses a MediaTek Helio G95 with a Mali G76 for graphics and gaming. There is also LPDDR4x RAM with UFS 2.2 for storage. These should ensure that app usage, gaming, social media as well as file sharing are fast and easy.

For those who are photographically inclined, there is a triple camera set up on board with a 48MP main camera for pictures that also shoots 4K video at 30fps. The other cameras are an 8MP Ultrawide angle, and an 8MP periscope camera. The selfie camera is a 16MP camera.

The display is a 6.78” LCD display with HD+ resolution with a refresh/touch rate of 90Hz/180Hz. There is no Gorilla glass protection. The battery is a huge 5000mAh and it supports 18W fast charging (0 – 40% in 15mins). The phone ships with XoS 7.6 on Android 11 and has a USB-C port and a headphone jack. For security, there is a fingerprint sensor.

Infinix Zero X

The Infinix Zero X is the middle device and it shares a lot of specs with the premium Zero X Pro. Just like the Zero Neo, it has a MediaTek Helio G95 with a Mali G76 for graphics and gaming. There is also LPDDR4x RAM with UFS 2.2 for storage. These specs all amount to a very decent performance for the smartphone.

If you like pictures, there is a triple camera set up on board with a 64MP main camera for pictures that also shoots 4K video at 30fps. The other cameras are an 8MP Ultrawide angle, and an 8MP periscope camera. The selfie camera is a 16MP camera.

The display is a 6.67” AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. The display has a density of 395ppi and a brightness of 700 nits. Infinix also says that this display has a refresh/touch rate of 120Hz/240Hz. There is no Gorilla glass protection. The battery is a huge 4500mAh and it supports 45W fast charging (0 – 40% in 15mins) just like the Zero Neo. The phone ships with XoS 7.6 on Android 11 and has a USB-C port and a headphone jack.

Infinix Zero X Pro

The Zero X Pro is the flagship device of this series. It shares nearly all of the same specs with the aforementioned phones. It has a MediaTek Helio G95 with a Mali G76 for graphics and gaming. There is also LPDDR4x RAM with UFS 2.2 for storage just like the other two.

It is in the camera department that the Zero X stands out. It houses a 108MP main camera for pictures that also shoots 4K video at 30fps. Whilst I am yet to find out the name of the sensor, it does look like like a Samsung HM2 to me. The other cameras are an 8MP Ultrawide angle, and an 8MP periscope camera. The selfie camera is a 16MP camera.

The display is a 6.67” AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. The display has a density of 395ppi and a brightness of 700 nits. Infinix also says that this display has a refresh/touch rate of 120Hz/240Hz. There is no Gorilla glass protection. The battery is a huge 4500mAh and it supports 45W fast charging (0 – 40% in 15mins) just like the Zero X and Neo. The phone ships with XoS 7.6 on Android 11 and has a USB-C port and a headphone jack.

Takeaway

One thing I noticed was that the Helio G95 maxes out at a refresh rate of 90Hz but it seems that Infinix added an Intelligent device driver chip to either make the screen go faster or simulate the effect. Is that going to be good for the screen in the long run?

Secondly, the Helio G95 also maxes out at a 64MP camera resolution. How is it going to support a 108MP camera? Is this 108MP the real deal or just a gimmick for bragging rights?

These are questions that I hope they answer.

The periscope lenses on offer are an excellent move from Infinix and with the addition of the Galileo engine, moon shots are going to be a thing. I really hope they can pull it off. The lenses are willing but the G95 may be weak.

To round up, these specs are very impressive from Infinix and these phones can compete very well in the market. Apart from the aforementioned questions, the only thing left is the price. Oh yes, the prices are very important and since their sister company goofed with the pricing of the Phantom X, I hope they do not make the same blunder.

Edit: Prices are out. What do you think about it?
