With the announcement of its new Zero 5G model, Infinix has already made it obvious that it would compete for the title of “fastest 5G smartphone in-segment”. That’s what a previous batch of teaser photographs hinted at, and it’s the tagline that appears on a new banner.
Some discrepancies exist between the two. Banners with “Launching on February 14, 10 noon” now appear instead of those with “February 8th, 10 am” in their titles. There is a possibility that Infinix has opted to push out the announcement by a few days. An alternative scenario would be a February 8 announcement and a February 14 start date for sales. Use of unclear verbs all the time is a concern in this industry. However, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

For the upcoming Zero 5G, Infinix has previously stated that speed and connectivity will be the primary selling features. The MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G chipset powers the device, which is an improvement over the MediaTek G-series chips that have powered Infinix phones in the past but also one that promises to outperform many rivals in terms of performance and connectivity, thanks to the device’s fast UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM. For the first time, a 5G model succeeds admirably.
We also saw the Infinix Zero 5G in the wild not long ago, and we now have some official-looking renders of it. It has a striking resemblance to the Oppo Find X3 in its general look.
Additionally, it is expected to sport a 6.67-inch 1080p display, 120Hz refresh rate, a 48MP main camera, capacitive fingerprint reader in the power button, a 5,000mAh battery, and Android 11 with Infinix’s XOS on top.
