It packs a 5.65-inch HD+ 2.5D curved glass full-screen display with minimal bezels. Powered by Snapdragon 430, it has 3GB or 4GB of RAM depending on the model. It runs on Android 8.0 (Oreo) out-of-the-box with the company’s own XOS Hummingbird V3.0 on top, making it one of the cheapest smartphones to run Oreo.

The main highlight of the smartphone is its 20-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash for capturing better selfies even in low-light. The selfies came out good and also has bokeh feature to blur the background.

There is a 13-megapixel camera on the back with f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash. There is also a fingerprint sensor below the camera along with Infinix branding.

It has a dedicated dual SIM and microSD slots arrange in a single tray, which is definitely a good move by the company. You can choose from 32GB or 64GB storage variants.

It has a metal-like finish, but the build quality is good. It has a 4000mAh built-in battery. It also comes in Brush Gold color and is priced at Rs. 8999 for the 3GB RAM with 32GB storage version and the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage version costs Rs. 10,999.

Overall the phone looks decent for the price targeted at selfie lovers. We will bring you the complete review soon. It will be available exclusively from Flipkart starting from February 12th.
