Obviously, Infinix is on the verge of becoming one of the best top-rated smartphones, and to that purpose, the company just announced its latest Zero series – Infinix Zero X and Zero X Pro with a 120Hz AMOLED display, and Zero X NEO with 90Hz AMOLED display.
These are the successor to the previous generation – Zero 8 and Zero 8i. One of the most striking and noble features of the Zero X series is the periscope camera and these are the company’s first phones to feature periscope lenses. The camera system is unique.
Infinix Zero X series camera
On the front of these phones is a 16-megapixels camera on the front with a dual-LED flash. While the rear cameras share an 8-megapixels periscope sensor moonshot lens with 5X optical zoom and 60X hybrid zoom and 8-megapixels ultrawide 120º FOV and macro cameras.
However, the main cameras of the Zero X are totally different. The Infinix ZERO X Pro sports a 108-megapixels OIS ultra-night Venti camera with Quad-LED flash, Zero X 64MP super-night camera lens, and the Zero X NEO has a 48-megapixels super-night camera.
Notably, there is a feature that Infinix is touting for the Zero X Pro. It is Infinix’s Hybrid Image Stabilization with an OIS+EIS solution to capture every detail in a larger field of view smoothly while reducing blurred images.
Most excellent premium phones lack periscope lenses, and it is most times preserved for the head of the pack/series, but in a bold move, Infinix is bringing the periscope camera lens to its three flagship phones. The periscope lens is equipped with 5x optical and 60x digital magnification.
Infinix also developed a new feature, dubbed Galileo Algorithm Engine. It’s an algorithm that controls the camera while capturing images of the Moon and later processing the data to get a clear result within a short period of time.
In Infinix words ” Galileo Algorithm Engine combines lunar exposure and focus locking systems to quickly adjust the focus motor to the clearest predicted position, while revolution elimination algorithms calculate and eliminate the influence of natural tidal forces, enabling a clear shot of the moon. Simultaneously, lunar detail protection algorithms retain detailed textures and artificial intelligence (AI) deep learning enhancement algorithms improve the details and effects of the image subject. When turned on, users can achieve one of the clearest and detailed smartphone images of the night sky.”
There is a 6.67″ AMOLED 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate display on the Zero X and Zero X Pro with 1080p screen resolution. However, the Zero X Neo sports a smaller 6.79-inch FHD+ LCD screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate.
Powering the Infinix Zero X, Zero X Pro and Zero X Neo is an Octa-Core MediaTek Helio G95 12nm processor, with its A76 CPU clocking at 2.05GHz and A55 CPUs at 2GHz with 900MHz Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU.
You can find these devices in 8GB LPPDDR4x RAM with 128GB UFS 2.2 storage, but the Zero X Pro comes with an extra 256GB storage and you can easily expand the memory up to 512GB via dedicated microSD card support.
Infinix Zero X will be available in Nebula Black and Starry Silver, and extra Bahamas for the Zero X NEO. While the Infinix Zero X Pro will be available same starting colors as the Zero X but with an extra Tuscany Brown. The shiny glamorous design on the rear panel is luminous.
These phones come with a volume up/down button and a power button on the side, which doubles as a fingerprint reader. There is a 3.5mm audio jack and support for dual speakers but the Zero X and Pro offers dual speakers are tuned by DTS – immersive audio system.
The Zero X series runs Android 11 with XOS 7.6 out of the box and comes with Dual SIM, which offers nano + nano + microSD. The connectivity options include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, and GPS. These phones come with Game Booster Dar-Link 2.0.
Infinix Zero X lineup draws power from the USB Type-C and supports TÜV Rheinland safe fast-charge technology. However, the Zero X NEO features a large 5000mAh battery with 18W Fast-Charge and 4500mAh with 45W support for the Zero X and Pro. This charges up to 40% in 15 minutes.
