5G is the buzzword today in many regions and in the west, coverage is in its advanced stages, offering users even faster internet speeds, as long as they are in supported areas and own compatible devices.

In Africa, 5G is slowly taking off but that is only one half of the equation as users will still need 5G-capable devices to take advantage of this new network. In Kenya, Safaricom is slowly rolling out 5G and there are already a decent number of 5G capable devices available in the market.

Infinix and its Transsion siblings are popular in this neck of the woods and it was only a matter of time before the brand debuted a 5G capable device. Well, now, we have a few more details on the same.

Thanks to XDA Developer, we now have three images of the rumoured Infinix 5G-capable device. While many details on the device remain a mystery for now, it is likely to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, 5G support (as indicated by the label on the back), a 120Hz refresh rate on the display, and a 40MP primary camera with 30X zoom.

We still don’t know which line of devices this Infinix device will be in since we expect to see the rollout of the upcoming Note 12 lineup early this year or the Note 13 lineup later in the year, this might as well be part of the Note lineup.

That said, Infinix also tends to release its flagship Zero series of devices towards the end of the year. Should we not see the 5G device launched as a Note device, we could see it being part of the Infinix Zero 11 series.

See, Infinix success has largely been due to the brand’s ability to offer top-tier features to the masses at an affordable price and with this new device, maybe Africa and other regions will finally see 5G going mainstream.
