Owning a high quality smartphone at a pocket-friendly cost is an amusement for any smartphone user. Infinix Mobility has perfected this art, and is slowly closing in to the top spot on the African market.
Infinix has garnered a wide fan-base from the Infinix Note 3, the Hot 4, and the Hot 4 Lite devices, all of which have registered success stories with their users. And this April, Infinix mobility might launch the Zero 4 and Zero 4 plus in Uganda.
The Infinix Zero series is the name that represents Infinix’s flagship series. Dating back in 2014 when the Infinix Zero launched, there has since been the Zero 2, and the Zero 3. The Zero 4 launched in November 2016, with some African countries already acquiring it. It comes as an upgraded version of the Zero 3, though in twin series of the Zero 4 and the Zero 4 Plus.
The Zero 4 comes with a 5.5-inch IPS screen, with the Zero 4 Plus having a 5.98-inch Full HD Display. Both are enveloped in a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 coating which protects the screen from damage on fall. It also allows for easier swiping and fluid finger motion over the display. The full Aluminum body implies a non-removable back cover, which has on it a fingerprint scanner that allows you to unlock your smartphone securely.
Depicted as the main feature on the Zero 4, this camera shoots better photos than any other Infinix mobile on the market. The new Pro manual adjustment camera interface is embedded within, adding to Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and faster laser autofocus. OIS reduces blurry photos and shaky videos that result from the hand shaking. This will probably result in better quality photos and fewer retakes.
The Zero 4 comes with a 16 MP sensor on the rear, a 4-times sharper zoom, and an 8 MP front camera with an LED flash. The Zero 4 Plus has a 20.7 MP rear camera and a 13 MP front camera with improved detail to the environment when taking selfies.
The two devices boast of more powerful processors compared to their predecessor. The Zero 4 comes with a MediaTek Helio X20 Octa-core processor that runs on 3 GB of RAM. The Zero 4 Plus comes with a 64-bit MediaTek Helio X20 Deca-core chipset that runs on 4 GB of RAM which meet the capacity needs of shooting and storing HD photographs and videos. Both processors are powerful, yet saving user battery.
The Zero 4 has a 3200mAh battery, while the Zero 4 Plus comes with a 4000mAh battery; both of which support Infinix quick charge technology known as ‘X-Charge’. The battery is full within an hour and a third of charge, implying that it takes you less time to get more battery percentage that lasts longer.
Both phones run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with Infinix’s XOS Chameleon for a finer user experience, and both have on-board storage space of 32 GB, extendable up to 128 GB on SDcard. The Zero 4 accepts dual Nano SIM, while the Zero 4 Plus accommodates a hybrid SIM setup of Micro + Nano with the Nano SIM slot available for SD-card insertion.
Each of the devices supports 4G LTE connectivity with up to 150 Mbps download, Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS and USB v2.0, as well as USB On-The-Go. Other sensors and controls supported include digital compass, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor, Light sensor, and Gyroscope.
