One of Africa leading smartphone brands, Infinix Mobility will be launching the Infinix Zero 5 on November 14 if rumour flying around is anything to go by. According to reports, the company has already sent out invites for the event taking place in Dubai. It seems Dubai has now become the perfect place for TECNO Mobile and Infinix. The TECNO Phantom 8 was unveiled last month in Dubai and Infinix is following suit to unveil her flagship in the Middle East city.
Although the photos and specs of the new Infinix device are already all over the internet. The company will officially unveil the device at the event in Dubai. The Zero 5 device will be succeeding the Infinix Zero 4 released last year.
There is an “Optical Zoom” inscription written beside the dual rear camera. This means the device will be coming with optical Zoom capability. Design-wise, It is made of metal at the back but we could not confirm if the front of the device is plastic or metal. The fingerprint scanner is mounted at the back for easy access.

There were rumours that the Zero 5 is bezel-less, well it’s clearly not. Infinix fans would have to wait for the Note 5 and Note 5 Pro to get the bezel-less experience. Infinix Zero 5 sports a 5.98-inch IPS, LCD capacitive touchscreen with screen resolution of 1080×1920 Pixels. Pixel density on the Zero 5 screen is very sharp at 368 PPI offering thrilling visuals. The display on the Zero 5 has 72.15% screen to body ratio, I think Infinix has a lot to do to achieve a bezel-less display.
SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE
Infinix focused more on the interior than the exterior on the Zero 5. It houses the MediaTek Helio P25 MT6757CD 64-bit Processor at an Octa-Core 2.6 GHz ARM Cortex speed. It has 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage expandable to 2000GB with microSD. I think this is biggest RAM size ever on an Infinix device. Gamers can now purchase the Infinix Zero 5 because of its 6GB RAM and its GPU (ARM Mali-T880 MP2, 900Hz, 4-Cores). Infinix Zero 5 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with XOS Chameleon 3.0 skin.
Finally an Infinix device with dual rear cameras, it was long overdue. Even though I’m not a fan of the “Optical Zoom” inscription, I love the fact that Infinix embraced the dual rear camera trend. The dual rear camera on the Infinix Zero 5 is 13MP + 12MP sharp! With expanding image dimensions of 4032 x 3024 Pixels. Expect the best photography ever on an Infinix smartphone, as both cameras would be working together to deliver amazing photos. For selfie lovers, there’s also a 16MP front-facing camera with CMOS Sensor and flash for the best selfies.
Infinix Zero 5 is powered by a 4350mAh non-removable battery, with fast charging feature. You can charge the Zero 5 from 0% to 100% in just 1.5 hours. Now that’s fast charging!
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Infinix Zero 5 is already available in most online stores for pre-order for just $320, that’s about N118,000 – N130,000.
