Infinix's new technology combines colourful LEDs with translucent TPU leather on the edges of the back cover.

  • The 3D Lighting Leather tech has a four-layer structure.
  • Infinix will use the tech to show dynamic alerts and notifications.

Infinix made headlines last month for launching a smartphone with a unique back panel design. The Infinix GT 10 Pro comes with a Cyberpunk-inspired design and also has customizable LEDs on the back for notifications. The LED approach was undoubtedly an inspiration from Nothing but the company has now announced something truly of its own. We are talking about the 3D Lighting Leather technology that will debut later this month.

Infinix 3D Leather Lighting Technology Details

As per GSMArena, Infinix has taken wraps off a new technology called 3D Leather Lighting. The goal is to offer a fun and dynamic way of receiving notifications on your smartphone. It does this in a similar way as the GT 10 Pro and Nothing Phone (2) which is on the back panel and without requiring the user to wake up the display.

Infinix is touting the technology as the industry’s first highly translucent 3D Lighting Leather. It has a four-layer structure featuring a Light Guide Film at the base. There is a Lightproof Paint Layer just above it which is followed by a Transparent Fiberglass Material. Translucent TPU Leather is at the top completing the whole structure.

Official teaser images for the tech show a leather back panel with colourful LED lights. These are shown in Red, Blue, and Teal colours which suggest users will able to choose from a wide range of colours. It seems like Infinix will combine these LED lights with sound effects to deliver dynamic notifications and alerts.
