It’s been a while since the Infinix Alpha smartphone hit the market, with the last of the phablet having showed up back in 2013 carrying model number X570.
Now, according to new benchmark reports, it appears that the tech giant has plans to refresh this Infinix Alpha phablet with new handsets, if at all their model numbers are anything to go by. As usual with Geekbench, we only have a few core specs of the phones.
The previous Infinix Alpha shipped with model number X570. Looking at how Infinix Mobility names its handsets, it’s easy to say that the newly-listed X571 and X572 models are in the same lineup as the Alpha. From the model numbers, it means that the alleged Infinix Alpha 2017 will come in two variants carrying model numbers X571 and X572.
Where the X572 will ship with a RAM of 2GB, the high-end X571 will come in with a RAM of 3GB. As for the processor and software, the two will have no difference. The benchmarks can confirm a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz and the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS on the duo.
Just in case you didn’t know, this MT6753 SoC is the same that you’ll find in the new Infinix S2 Pro as well as last year’s Infinix Hot S and Hot S Pro. However, given that the Infinix Alpha had a 5.7-inch HD display screen, we expect to see a similar panel on the refreshed versions. It’s also possible that the 2GB RAM variant could house a 16GB storage while the 3GB RAM variant will double this to 32GB.
There are no details on the cameras, but looking at the Infinix Alpha X570, which had a decent 12MP shooter on the back and a 5MP lens for selfies, we expect to see huge improvements in this department. The battery capacity should also be improved from the 2300mAh unit used on the X570, especially now that we have an even bigger 3000mAh unit on an Infinix S2 Pro handset that has a much smaller 5.2-inch display screen.
Do keep in mind that this is an unconfirmed report and is based on our educated guesses. As a result, take it with a grain of salt.
