Infinix Mobility, owned by Transsion Holdings, which is also the same company that owns Tecno Mobile and Itel Mobiles, has a not-so-predictable structure of naming its phones, especially when it comes to model numbers.
This complicated structure makes it hard to decode some of the model numbers in relation to the exact phones they represent, which is exactly the same case with the latest development. Apparently, the Wi-Fi Alliance has just cleared an Infinix X559 smartphone with Android 7.0 Nougat running the show.
We’ve seen this same model number appear on Geekbench back in May, where the phone had Android 7.0 Nougat, a MediaTek MT6580 SoC alongside 1GB RAM. If you are an avid Infinix follower, you’ll be quick to note that the Infinix Hot 4 Lite is powered by these same specs, but from my understanding, the phone has model number X557, same as the standard Hot 4. The Hot 4 family also comes with a Pro variant that ships with model number X556.
So, which is this unknown Infinix X559 model? At the moment, it’s hard to tell, but looking at what the company has been doing recently, where it has unveiled two phones with just about the same hardware packages as their predecessors – Infinix S2 Pro and Infinix Note 4 – it’s possible that this could be the successor to the Hot 4 Lite.
It makes some sense given that the Hot 4 Lite and the rest of the Hot 4 family was released in August 2016, meaning it’s about time the Infinix Hot 5 Lite and the rest of the Hot 5 family gets unveiled as well. At the moment, there’s no official word on whether Infinix Mobility is working on the new Hot 5 series, but we expect that this is the case.
As a result, it’s important that you take this new development with a grain of salt, at least until more concrete details come out, possibly a few weeks from now. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile, feel free to drop us your thoughts in the comments below.
