Infinix Note 4 was unveiled last month and so far, some sections were not so impressed with what the company brought around, especially since there were still so many similarities with the Infinix Note 3.
After so many questions from fans regarding the status of the Infinix Note 4 Pro, the company revealed that the phone would be unveiled in August. A few weeks later, the phone was cleared by the Wi-Fi Alliance with model number X571, confirming that its release was indeed imminent.
Now, close to three weeks into August, Infinix Mobility has finally confirmed that the Note 4 Pro is about to be released, but it hasn’t given out the specific date yet. Even if the company is still keeping the release date a secret, the specs and features of the Infinix Note 4 Pro are no longer a secret.
We knew the details of the phone a few weeks ago and now that it’s about to hit the market, we thought it’s a perfect time for you to know the key differences between the Infinix Note 4 Pro and the standard Note 4. These should help you tell which phone to buy between the two.
The first major difference between the Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro is the XPen. This is a stylus that is aimed at stepping up the productivity of this phone. It’s a first for an Infinix phone, but it won’t be the first on the market. Samsung and LG have had styluses on their handsets for years now, helping users take notes when on the go and a bunch of other things.
Take note that the XPen only works with the Infinix Note 4 Pro.
These days, it’s not easy to bump into a phone that lasts more than a full day on a single charge, but it appears that both the Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro will manage probably more. The former has a 4300mAh unit while the latter boasts a slightly bigger 4500mAh unit, which should give you a few more hours of use.
Given their sheer size, the Note 4 and Note 4 Pro batteries have been backed up by XCharge fast charging technology. However, you don’t get the same speeds on the two. Apparently, the Infinix Note 4 Pro charger supports a maximum output of 5A while the standard Note 4 manages 3A of output. In short, the Note 4 Pro will fill up faster than the Note 4, which should be a welcome feature for fans considering the slightly bigger battery size on the Pro variant.
In terms of performance specs, there are a few differences between the two phones. Even though you’ll bump into the same MediaTek MT6753 processor, the Infinix Note 4 Pro has a bigger 3GB RAM than the 2GB RAM used on the Note 4. In addition, you also get 32GB of expandable storage on the Pro version compared to 16GB on the standard model, but both support microSD card storage.
The Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro have just about the same design language, but a few tweaks have been made here and there. You still get the same 5.7-inch Full HD display screen on either phone, but the Infinix Note 4 Pro has a metallic build as opposed to the Note 4, which has a plastic rear panel. Speaking of the rare panel, you’ll also notice a few differences here. For instance, the LED flash on the Note 4 is below the camera while that of the Note 4 Pro is on the side, but both have front-mounted fingerprint scanners, which is contrary to the Note 3 and Note 3 Pro where the scanner is on the back.
Right now, you can get the Infinix Note 4 at Ksh 13,999. Even though Infinix Mobility has not confirmed the price of the Note 4 Pro, you shouldn’t expect it to come on the cheap. The phone could be priced at more than Ksh 18,000, but this is just a hunch. Stay tuned and we’ll update you with pricing details once available.
