Infinix, a Hong Kong-based smartphone brand, has launched its latest model, the Smart 8, in India. The Smart 8 is a budget-friendly device that offers some impressive features, such as a 90Hz refresh rate display, a 5,000 mAh battery, and a dual-camera setup.
The Smart 8 sports a 6.6-inch HD+ IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The display has a waterdrop notch that houses an 8 MP selfie camera with a dual-LED flash. The display also supports a 90Hz refresh rate, which means that it can deliver smoother and more fluid animations and transitions. This is a rare feature for a smartphone in this price range, as most of the competitors offer only a 60Hz refresh rate.
The Smart 8 is powered by a MediaTek Helio G25 chipset, which is an octa-core processor with a clock speed of up to 2.0 GHz. The chipset is paired with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256 GB via a microSD card. The Smart 8 runs on Android 11 Go Edition, which is a lighter version of the Android operating system designed for low-end devices.
The Smart 8 boasts a 5,000 mAh battery, which can provide up to 36 hours of talk time, 31 hours of music playback, or 10 hours of video playback. The battery also supports 10W fast charging, which can charge the device from 0 to 100% in about 2.7 hours. The Smart 8 has a micro-USB port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The Smart 8 has a dual-camera setup on the back, consisting of a 13 MP main camera and a depth sensor. The main camera has an f/1.8 aperture, a quad-LED flash, and supports features such as AI scene detection, HDR, panorama, and beauty mode. The depth sensor helps in creating a bokeh effect for portrait shots. The Smart 8 can record videos at 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second.
The Smart 8 is available in two color options: Obsidian Black and Mint Green. The Smart 8 is priced at INR 6,999, which is equivalent to about USD 94. The Smart 8 is a great option for anyone looking for a smartphone that offers a smooth and immersive display, a long-lasting battery, and a decent camera performance at an affordable price.
