Infinix Note 4, the successor to the 2016 Infinix Note 3 series, will be released very soon, the leading retailer in the region, Jumia, has just confirmed.
Infinix Mobility is one of the top smartphone brands in Africa right now thanks to its ability to offer low-cost devices that are packed with not-so-bad hardware specs and features. One of its best-selling families is the Note series, with the current models in the market being the Infinix Note 3 and Note 3 Pro.
These two are great phones that carry impressive specs and price tags albeit with one major difference – the RAM capacity. As it stands, the tech giant is ready to push aside the duo by releasing a new series – the Infinix Note 4 and possibly the Note 4 Pro.
According to material obtained by Jumia Kenya, the Infinix Note 4 will be “coming soon.” The specific date is not yet confirmed, but the giant retailer has just given us a good number of specs and features to expect when the Note 3 successor hits the market.
For starters, the Infinix Note 4 will feature a top-notch design featuring a metallic unibody while the display screen will come with a 5.7-inch 2.5D panel from Sharp, slightly smaller than the 6-inch panel used on the Note 3. There’s no mention of the display resolution, but don’t expect anything beyond the Full HD (1080p) used on the 2016 model.
Speaking of the Note 3, this phablet came with an entry-level MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor running the show alongside 2GB of RAM – and 3GB RAM on the Note 3 Pro. While the report confirms that the Infinix Note 4 will also feature an octa-core processor and the same 2GB RAM, there’s no mention of the name of the processor on board. Hopefully, the company will step up this area to something better, possibly a MediaTek MT6755 (Helio P10). The storage is still at 16GB and this should be supported by a microSD card of up to 128GB.
In terms of photography, the Infinix Note 4 gets a main camera of 13MP that is supported by a dual-LED flash while the front will give you an improved 8MP lens for selfies, up from the 5MP used on the Note 3. Due to the reduced screen size, the battery capacity has also been slightly reduced from 4500mAh to 4300mAh, but you still get support for fast charging technology, which the company says will charge the phone from 0-45% in just half an hour.
The Infinix Note 4 also gets a fingerprint scanner, but unlike its predecessor, this feature is front-mounted and it doubles as the home button. In terms of software, the Note 4 will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. As usual, this OS is not stock, instead, you get the company’s XOS 2.2 skin on top.
Similar to the release date, the pricing details of the Infinix Note 4 are still unclear, but they should come out once the phone is released. Stay tuned and we’ll update you.
