We brought you new the latest Infinix Zero smartphone was out of the works and ready to make a public appearance and now the device has been announced officially in Indonesia.
The smartphone brand which has so far captured the heart of Nigerians and African countries at large with budget smartphone offering including the Smart 4 Plus and recently released Hot 9 series hopes to take a different route with its latest offering.
A lot has already been made with the increasing acceptance of the Xiaomi and Oppo competition in the Nigerian market and with the Zero 8 device, Infinix hopes to target the mid-range smartphone segment whilst keeping the competition flame blazing.
Although the smartphone has only been launched in Indonesia for now, it’s only a matter of time before we get a proper launch date for the Nigerian smartphone space.
The Infinix Zero 8 smartphone comes with a tone of high-end features unlike any infinix product you know and packs a powerful processor at an affordable price. So let us have a look at everything the device brings to the table as well as the expected price.
Infinix Zero 8 Specifications and features
Infinix has so far been making great strides with better display panels and lightening on their devices lately as illustrated with the Hot 9 series and the Infinix Zero 8 might just have taken things a notch a bit.
Infinix Zero 8 Display and OS
The newly launched Infinix Zero 8 features a 6.85-inch FHD+ display panel with a refresh rate of 90HZ and180Hz touch sampling rate which is just about a whole selling point on its own. The display flaunts the bezel-less design with a dual-punch-hole cutout for selfie cameras.
The smartphone runs on Android 10 out of the box based on Infinix XOS 7 custom skin.
Infinix Zero 8 Processor
Under the hood, the Transsion sub-brand went with the recently announced MediaTek Helio G90T processor which is a pretty mid-range SoC but highly characterized with providing seamless gaming experience as previously seen in devices including the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Realme 6.
Talk about waking up to reality then…
Infinix Zero 8 Storage
The Infinix Zero 8 also packs an 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage capacity single variant which can be expandable using a microSD card.
Infinix Zero 8 Camera
In terms of camera, Infinix have always messed things up a bit but the sensor on this latest offering points to a huge kick up the backside and a huge awakening to reality from them.
The Infinix Zero 8 features a quad-camera setup on the rear which comprises a 64-megapixel Sony IMX696 sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens along with macro sensors and depth sensor.
It might look beautiful average but let’s not forget Xiaomi advertise the IMX696 sensor on the Redmi 8 to brings outputs just as with the Pixel phones. The story however is different all together.
However, it will be pretty awesome to see what Infinix has come up with on their own and how they go about processing images on this device.
On the front, there’s a dual-camera setup with a 48-megapixel sensor and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens all enclosed in the dual punch-hole cutout.
The battery capacity on the Infinix Zero 8 smartphone is also very much welcome. A 4500mAh battery capacity on top of a Type-C port for refilling the juice means we get support for 33W fast charging on this piece of hardware.
Infinix Zero 8 Price and Availability
The Infinix Zero 8 smartphone has been launched in Indonesia for now though the global launch date remains unknown.
For bringing themselves up to recent trend with the specs on this device, Infinix promises to take a chunk out of your saving if you ever consider getting a unit. The Infinix Zero 8 will retail at Rp. 3,799 (roughly $210 for the 8GB and 128GB storage variant.

Nokia C3, Nokia 150, and Nokia 125 launched in India: Full Specifications and Features
Nokia phone family in India have been given a boost as HMD Global have announced the launched of the Nokia C3 on Tuesday after a long wait, alongside their other latest members, including the Nokia 125, and Nokia 150.
The Finnish company has so far found solace and a slight return to success in the budget and entry-level smartphone segment with offer of functional Android One devices.
It has launched the entry-level Nokia C3 smartphone and Nokia 125, Nokia 150 feature phones in India. Nokia C3 was launched sometime back in China with low-end specifications but stock Android software while the two feature phones are just additions to the strong portfolio HMD Global enjoys in India.
Here, we take a look at everything new with the trio of newly launched Nokia smartphones.
Nokia C3 Specifications, Features and Price
Arguably the peak of the entire bunch, the Nokia C3 brings a 5.99-inch HD+ LCD display without a notch or a punch-hole, very much akin with its predecessor, the Nokia C2. There is an octa-crore Unisoc SC9863A processor running on Android 10 and is paired with up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, with the ability to be expanded via a microSD card of up to 128GB.
For optics, the Nokia C3 features here an 8-megapixel camera at the back of the Nokia C3 while the shooter on the front is a 5-megapixel sensor.
However, the main downgrade here is a 3040mAh battery that can be removed after you take the back panel off. Not least for the moderate battery capacity but I couldn’t find a reason to make it removable.
Whoever does that in 2020?!
The Nokia C3 India price is set at Rs 7,499 for the base variant that comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and Rs 8,999 for the one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It comes in Nordic Blue and Sand colours.
The Nokia C3 is scheduled to go on sale starting September 17 but the pre-orders will begin on September 10 on Nokia official online store.
Moreover, you also get the 1-year replacement guarantee on the Nokia C3 and 2-years of software and security updates much like select smartphones HMD Global has launched preciously.
Nokia 125 Specifications, Features and Price
Next on the line is the Nokia 125 feature phone. I mean, it’s only in 2020 that a feature could garner much attention right?
As a feature phone, the Nokia 125 provides you with the basics. A 2.4-inch colour display with a T9 keyboard. It has the iconic Snake game and offers FM radio. It can store up to 2,000 contacts and 500 SMS on its storage but there is no support for microSD card on it. It is a dumbed-down smartphone that you can use for calling, texting, and listening to FM radio.
Anything other than this lot, you’re definitely on your own!!
So, if you are looking for a phone that has the Nokia brand slapped on it (not the copyrighted market types) and provides you with the basics, Nokia 125 could be one of the options. It costs Rs 1,999 and comes in Charcoal Black and Powder White colours. It is now available to purchase from Nokia online store and mobile retailers across the globe.
Nokia 150 Specifications, Features and Price
Last on the bill but definitely not the last of this lot we get to see from Nokia. The Nokia 150 feature phone is everything double what you get on the Nokia 125 though a slight resemblance here-and-there.
Nokia 150 has a 2.4-inch colour display with a T9 keyboard but a larger footprint than that of the Nokia 125. It supports the FM radio function without the headphones, unlike the Nokia 125. This one also has the Snake game and a battery which Nokia says will last you for weeks*.
An upgrade over the Nokia 125 definitely means a slight shake of the wallet again. The Nokia 150 offers things such as FM radio and an MP3 player. It comes in Red, Cyan, and Black colours for a price of Rs 2,299. The sale for the Nokia 150 is now live across retailers in India.
