Towards the end of June, a phone believed to be the upcoming Infinix Zero 5 – or Zero 5 Plus – appeared on benchmarking platforms GFXBench and Geekbench.
The phone came with model number X603, suggesting that it’s the immediate successor to the Infinix Zero 4 Plus, which has model number X602. From the two benchmarks, we were able to get all the basic details of the alleged Infinix Zero 5 Plus, be it the display size and the resolution, the processor on board alongside the RAM, the storage capacity, the front and back cameras as well as the OS that will run the show out of the box.
When a phone appears on these benchmarking platforms, it’s usually an indicator that it’s getting ready for a release. If anything, the appearance of the supposed Infinix Zero 5 Plus on GFXBench and Geekbench all but confirmed the company had already started working on the phone ahead of the expected release in the coming months.
Now, the same phone has made another stop on Geekbench carrying model number X603. Similar to what had appeared in late June, the alleged Infinix Zero 5 Plus has a MediaTek Helio P25 SoC (MT6757CD), an octa-core chipset clocked at 1.69GHz. This has been paired with a monstrous 6GB RAM and in terms of software, you get the current Android 7.0 Nougat on board.
Other than these, the Geekbench listing doesn’t give out any other core hardware specs, but it has some performance scores resulting from the tests done on the phone. When taken through single-core tests, the Infinix Zero 5 Plus managed a not-so-good score of just 637, but this took a massive bump when taken through multi-core tests, managing a score of 3489.
Of course, these are just initial tests and once everything has been stabilized, you can expect better performance scores.
Despite the second appearance of the Infinix X603 aka Infinix Zero 5 Plus on Geekbench, we still have no details of when the phone will be released. But if the company is to follow in the footsteps of the Infinix Zero 4 and Zero 4 Plus, the 2017 model should be unveiled somewhere in November, which is still some months away.
