Barely two weeks of launching the Infinix Smart 4 Plus with 6000mAh battery, Infinix has announced the launch of another smartphone dubbed Infinix Smart 5 with 5000mAh battery. The device has been listed on Google Play Console with the full specifications, design, and model number revealed. Below are the revealed features and the expected price.
Display and Camera
Infinix Smart 5 will feature a 6.6-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch housing the selfie camera upfront. The display comes with a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and a pixel density of 266 PPI.
If you’ve seen the latest Tecno Spark 5 smartphone or the Infinix Hot 9 Play, you will agree with me that this upcoming Smart 5 is just a rebranded or redesigned version of the above-mentioned devices in terms of the camera system and some of the features. According to the Google Play Console listing, the Infinix Smart 5 will be equipped with triple rear cameras, containing a 13MP and two QVGA sensors. The rear cameras are equipped with triple LED flash. The front is rumoured to have an 8MP lens for selfies which produces smarter and brighter selfie shots with two LED flash.
