Infinix Zero 5 Full Review: Specs, Price, Dual Cameras

Infinix have just debuted their flagship smartphone for the year. The Infinix Zero 5 is a unique device that comes with features that have never been witnessed on any Infinix device. With curved edges, fingerprint scanner, and dual rear cameras, Infinix Zero 5 is ready to take the market by storm.

Coming with a 4G connectivity and a roomy storage of 64GB/128GB, the Zero 5 is expected to be a big market player when one takes into consideration the 2TB memory expansion. We expected the phone to come with Android 8.0 Oreo. However, Android 7.0 Nougat is an in-demand OS, and the design makes the user interface quite intriguing. Check out the features and specifications of the Infinix Zero 5.


The Infinix Zero 5 has a metal finish crafted into an astonishing sleek body. The device is manufactured in three colours – gold, matte black and apple red. It comes standard with a fingerprint scanner right below the dual rear cameras. The fingerprint scanner enables you unlock your smart device by just placing a finger on the surface. It also adds more security layers as it is more accurate than even the powerful scanner on the Hot 4. The phone is designed to give a good grip while being used and when it is passively held.

Display and Resolution

Infinix Zero 5 is a 5.98 inch device, technically making it a phablet (phones that can be used in tablet form, usually over 5.5 inch). It has a screen ration of 18:9 and a screen resolution of 1080 X 1920. Infinix Zero 5 has similar display specifications to the Tecno Phantom 8 with the 2.5D glass coating and the full HD display. However, it trumps the Phantom device in terms of pixel quality with an amazing 403 pixel per square inch. With these display features, images, videos, and games  that look very crisp on the Zero smartphone.

Processor and Performance

The Infinix Zero 5 promises blazing speed like never before on any Infinix device. It has a powerful Mediatek Helio P25 Octa-core processor that is able to clock 2.6GHz. Being a flagship device, we expected that the Zero 5 will come with the latest Android OS, Oreo. However, Android 7.0 Nougat is welcome as Infinix integrated it very nicely into their sleek XOS user interface. According to Infinix, the OS is upgradable to Android 8.0. With this device, you get the choice of a 64GB or 128GB storage, both coming with a 6GB RAM that is more than enough to run all the apps and games stored on the 64GB/128GB memory. Also, you have the option to expand the base storage by 2TB when you insert a memory card into the Zero 5. Possibilities are endless with this smartphone.


Like we said earlier, there are similarities between the Infinix Zero 5 and the Tecno Phantom 8 One of such similarities is th dual rear camera. Infinix didn’t disappoint at all in this department. The dual cameras at the back can boast of capturing quality images with their 12MP and 13MP combination. According to Infinix, the device features an optical zoom that can zoom an image up to 10 times closer. The 16MP front-facing camera can easily deliver quality selfies, especially with improved camera features like the beautifier, auto-focus, and face-detection capabilities that are designed to make your pictures look professional.

Connectivity and Battery

As expected, the phone has a flash-charge feature and also supports USB OTG and USB Type-C. The device also comes with a 4G connectivity which is fantastic for watching movies and live streaming. The 4350mAh battery is also a massive upgrade on last year’s flagship device – Zero 4 – which had a mere 3200mAh battery capacity. With a 4350mAh battery capacity, this is probably the biggest battery capacity among Infinix smartphones.

Pricing and Availability

There isn’t a fixed date for the availability of the device as of now. However, it is expected that Nigeria will be one of the first countries to witness the flagship smartphone once it is made available. The starting price of the Infinix Zero 5 is set at N120,000, and expected to rise with demand.
