Infinix is yet to establish a foothold in a very competitive android world we currently live in; in fact, on rare occasions you’d find someone looking it up as a potential upgrade. But its interesting to learn some of the pieces we miss when we vaguely go for established brands leaving out what could have otherwise been a perfect combination of price and specifications. The Infinix Note 7 is now official with interesting specs that we’re keen to see just how it performs on the ground.
To be honest, we don’t expect the latest Infinix Note 7 to put up much of a fight here in Kenya, but the price and specs combination might be just what most of us have all along been waiting for. Truth be told, this is a no-go zone for power users, or those of us looking to upgrade from the likes of Apple or Samsung, there’s already a ton of devices out there that will surely do justice for your sake.
The Note 7 surely has all it takes to aim; the brand still enjoys a sizeable following here in Kenya and we expect its latest top gun to kill into the competition’s market-share. The Note 7 comes with the same quad camera setup that has fancied content creators from earlier brands; the likes of Nova 7i, Nokia 5.3 and Samsung Galaxy A31 pretty much packs a similar setup.
For a price tag of Ksh17,799 here in Kenya, things are really looking up for this model and I can safely say a good number of us are looking forward to the device. It comes packed with reasonable specs that we don’t usually get in this niche; there’s a 48 megapixels camera underneath for starters and the branded Gorilla glass on the front must mean something to those of us scared of scratches.
A hyped Non-removable Li-Po 5000 mAh battery should survive the day under normal use but we love the idea of supporting 18w charging so you could hook up to power and be ready to go under two hours with 100 percent charge.
Instead of an under-display fingerprint sensor, the Infinix Note 7 comes with a side-mounted one instead, the sensor is reliable and should unlock your device instantly with just a tap. Under the hood is infinix’s XOS 6.0 skin powered by Android 10.0 and you have an option of 6GB RAM instead of 4GB in some 128GB models.
