Infinix Note 4 is finally here, the successor to last year’s Infinix Note 3. As usual, the phone is still exclusive to Jumia Kenya, but it will soon be available via other channels across the country.
The Hong Kong-based company has been throwing around teasers of the phone, but we now have the full specs and pricing details. Being a successor to the Infinix Note 3, one would expect to see some upgrades here and there, however, you might be a little disappointed at what the phone brings to the table. Without beating around the bush, let’s jump straight into the specs and features of the new Infinix Note 4.
The phone has a stunning look that features a metallic frame and a removable plastic back instead of the all metal unibody used on last year’s Note 3. You also get a 2.5D 5.7-inch display screen with a 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD) resolution. This screen size is slightly smaller than the 6-inch panel used on the Note 3, but since it keeps the same resolution, the display is much crispier on the Infinix Note 4 as compared to its predecessor. Another major design change here is the placement of the fingerprint scanner, which is now found on the front panel.
Under the hood, the new Infinix Note 4 has the same MediaTek MT6753 octa-core SoC used on the Note 3 alongside 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. This is disappointing, but it will still get the job done, especially since the device has the new Android 7.0 Nougat running the show out of the box.
In terms of photography, the Note 4 has a 13MP shooter on the back that comes with a dual LED flash and autofocus while the front panel gets an 8MP shooter for selfies. Keeping the phablet alive is a decent 4300mAh battery unit that comes with support for the company’s XCharge fast charging technology, which promises up to 45% battery juice in 30 minutes of charging.
As for the pricing, the Infinix Note 4 can be yours for just Ksh 13,999, which is not a bad price for a device boasting such entry-level hardware specs. The phone is available in up to four color variants of Sandstone Black, Lilac Grey, Champagne Gold and Prussian Blue.
