Infinix Zero 2 Specifications and Features

Infinix is set to release one of their most anticipated smartphone for 2015 - The Infinix Zero 2. Already marketing campaign is on-going on social media and other areas, there is little that is known of this smartphone's specifications and features until now and we have detailed it below.


Build and Dimensions
Infinix zero is a beautiful looking smartphone, one that was well designed and manufactured. It is square shaped, with great flush; more like the predecessor but with a thinner form factor. It has dimensions 140 x 70 x 6.7mm, and weighs 118g. Therefore, it is easy on the hand and doesn't feel heavy at all. In fact one hand operation is a breeze! especially with all the buttons (volume and power) being on one side. Also, the back case of the Infinix Zero 2 is made of Kevlar, a super strong and lightweight material manufactured by DuPont in the US and usually used in making body armors. 


Network and SIM
Infinix Zero 2 comes with 2 micro SIM card slots eliminating the need for two phones. The means you will have to cut your SIMs to fit the space if it does not come in those sizes. The SIM slots are accessible by ejecting the SIM tray at the side of the phone. With Infinix Zero 2 (X509), both SIM card slots are always on standby and operational with the SIM slot 1 capable of 2G - 3.75G network while the SIM slot 2 only support 2G networks. In the network band department, the Infinix Zero 2 has network bands GSM: 850/900/1800/1900MHZ and WCDMA 850/2100MHz which makes it possible for those outside Nigeria to use it on other foreign supported networks.

Screen, Display and Resolutions
Infinix is on a roller coaster these days when it comes to screen resolutions on theoir recent smartphones. The Infinix Zero 2 is a 5.0 inch smartphone with multitouch HD display. The display has resolutions 1280 x 720 pixels. To spice things, the Inifnix Zero introduced an AMOLED display for great screen viewing and low energy utilization plus a corning Gorilla Glass 3 added strength for the display.


Operating System and Processor
Infinix Zero  2 comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. This means that more than 1 billion apps on Google Play are ready to be used. Furthermore, those that own a smartwatch will be able to pair their smartwatch with their smartphone. Android 4.4.2 is very fluid and would give a very great android experience.
Not to forget the processor that will perform the duty of running the OS. Inside the Infinix Zero 2 is a MediaTek 6592 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz and a MALI 450 MP4 GPU for graphic intensive videos and games.

RAM and Internal Memory
Who doesn't like a smartphone with a lot of RAM and internal memory? Well we do, and Infinix Zero 2 does good justice in this area. The Infinix Zero 2 aka X509 comes with 2GB RAM, a more than enough memory for running apps and extended multitasking. minimum Internal memory of 16GB is the defacto in the smartphone industry and Infinix X509 is living to that standard by being equipped with a 16GB internal memory. However in the event that there is no enough memory for those that use their smartphone as a file server, there is room to increase the memory to up to 32GB more by inserting a SD card in the SD card slot found in Infinix Zero 2.


Camera and Connectivity
The camera performances of recent Infinix smartphones are very commendable and Infinix Zero 2 builds on that performance. The Infinix Zero 2 comes with a 13 mega pixel AF back camera with features like auto-focus, geo-tagging, face and smile detection. The back camera can take panorama shots and record videos in 60fps and 30fps on 720p and 1080p respectively. As shown in the image above, which was taken using the Zero 2, picture clarity is very magnificent. The back camera has a dedicated LED flashlight for taking images in low light environments. The front camera is a 5.0 megapixel camera with a 85 degree wide angle lens capable of producing excellent shots and high quality videos when making video calls.
In connectivity department, the usual Bluetooth v4.0, Micro USB 2.0 and USB OTG port are present but this time around, the WiFi chip now supports the WiFi protocols 802.11 a/b/g/n. No NFC chip on the device but the MediaTek alternative known as HotKNot is available on the device. We end by sayinng that the GPS and AGPS chip on the device is very efficient and accurate, displaying location withing seconds and very low power consumption. LED notification on the top-right corner of the screen provide notifications for different activities such as received messages, missed calls, charging notification etc. for the Infinix Zero 1 but the zero 2 has no notification LED light. 

Battery
The device comes with a non-removable battery with power rating 2300mAh. The battery is great for a basic user and will last through a day on a medium usage. Although, we would have loved Infinix to give us more power battery for this device, we will still say that for the price this device is being offered, the 2300mAh battery would suffice for most and if not, the power bank will come in handy.

Price
An officail price for this smartphone has not been announced yet but from the rumors we got from reliable sources, the Infinix Zero 2 will be sold for N25,000 - N28,000 and would be available for purchase from June 1st on Jumia and Konga websites, including retails stores like Slot and Micro Station.

Verdict
The Infinix Zero 2 is a great smartphone, receiving a very good compared to its predecessor in the camera, screen, and design department. Knowing Infinix as a company that releases great smartphones that are affordable, we give the Infinix Zero 2 a rating of 8.5/10 with respect to other smartphones in its price range.

  4. Was hoping to buy this phone if only it came with a battery of 4800 mAh like that of Infinix Hot Note cause am fed up with my Infinix zero which battery drains like a One Minute Man, I'll have to go for BlackBerry Q10 don't know how advisable that is... @Akin Akinsanya Boss Please I need your BBM pin again, I lost it..

  5. I believe the battery would serve just as much. Plus Infinix have seriously improved the performances of the battery in their devices starting from the Hot Note. Remember that even Samsung S6 & Apple iPhone 6 have about 2500mAh battery rating. No so much different from this.

    1. You Ned a pin to pry open the sim tray located at the left side of the phone. The pin is supplied with phone. Just insert the pin in the Tinu hole close to the sim slot and the slot will eject

    2. I got this phone. It keeps saying sim not detected and it goes on and off frequently. Even when I am on calls or trying to browse. Could this be a sim tray problem. Please advise.

    1. Not sure exactly what you mean but there's a red bar portion that detects when the phone is in the pocket. A screen shot will give a better understanding

    1. Honestly speaking, Zero 2 has issues with sim card detection. I have one right now that I don't use because of that. However, I don't have issues with rebooting. Perhaps an app is triggering that or you just have a defective phone that needs replacing. Also, you can try updating the software but make sure it is not rooted. Rooting affects the phone badly.
