It is almost a year since the Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 pro was launched and here we are today with news of a successor to the most popular device from INFINIX MOBILITY the NOTE SERIES.
From the first HOTE NOTE to the current NOTE 4 and NOTE 4 PRO the note series has been noted for one thing ” BATTERY LIFE ” the battery life of the note series is amazing it has managed to ward of competition from budget devices in it’s category and this leads us us to this year’s device the NOTE 5.
The upcoming Note 5 and as tradition would have it, this is a phablet device that offers almost-flagship specifications at a reasonable price. The Infinix Note 5 that is yet to launch will run on Android 8.1 Oreo, crowned with an Android One badge for clean, stock Android directly from Google.The first infinix device to run on Android One was infinix hot 2.
The specs of the phone are not yet known, but we can speculate based on the past that it will be a 6 inch device with a 1080p display, and since it is 2018, the bezels will be greatly reduced. Maybe there will be a dual camera system on the Pro version and a single camera on the normal version.
What we know though is that the X-pen on the Pro will be updated. I hope this time it will be much better, and hidden within the phone.
The Hot 6 has face unlock, so it’s no-brainer but i do not think face unlock will make an appearance on the Note 5 because till date there is no AndroidOne device with Face unlock. Some people might complain that we should be getting dual cameras in 2018 but the Note is not a camera-centric device so we won’t fault Infinix if it decides to skip that frenzy. Reliable sources point to a 13MP main camera paired with an 8MP selfie shooter which should serve just fine.
