We had reported that the Infinix Smart 5 has been launched in India. However, that is not the case. We had misinterpreted the brand’s global website for its Indian website. The Infinix Smart 5 has been listed on the brand’s global website but not on its Indian website. The brand has confirmed with us that the phone has not been launched in the Indian market.
The original story follows…
Infinix, without holding any launch event, has launched an all-new smartphone today, the Smart 5. The phone has been listed on the brand’s official website for India and Nigeria, suggesting that the device has been launched in these two countries. Going by the specifications, the Smart 5 seems to be an entry-level smartphone. Let us dive deeper into the specifications, price, and availability of the Smart 5 without wasting any more time.
Infinix Smart 5 price, availability
The official website of Infinix for India mentions that the Smart 5 is available in a single memory configuration in the Indian market, 3GB RAM + 64GB storage, whereas, the official website of Infinix for Nigeria states that the device is available in the country in 2GB RAM + 32GB storage configuration. Neither the Indian nor the Nigerian website of Infinix reveals anything regarding the price and availability of the smartphone. Hopefully, the brand will soon send a press release or update its website revealing those details. That being said, the specifications of the Infinix Smart 5 suggest that it is an entry-level smartphone and we think it will be priced below INR 10,000.
Infinix Smart 5 specifications
The Infinix Smart 5 flaunts a 6.6-inch IPS LCD with an HD+ resolution. The display has a traditional, V-shaped notch at the top. The notch houses an 8MP camera with a fixed focus. The rear camera setup of the smartphone has three cameras, a 13MP primary camera, and two 2MP cameras, whose purpose hasn’t been mentioned on the official website. The primary camera at the rear can record Full HD videos at 30 frames per second.
Infinix hasn’t revealed the processor model of the Smart 5 but the official website does reveal that the phone has an octa-core processor with a 1.8GHz base frequency. The phone features 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The internal storage is expandable up to 256GB with the help of a microSD card. On the software side of things, the Infinix Smart 5 runs on Android 10 Go Edition.
The standout feature of the Infinix Smart 5 is that it packs a 5000mAh battery. Unfortunately, the phone has only 10W charging and it charges through a microUSB port. The Infinix Smart 5 has dual-SIM connectivity with 4G support, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The Infinix Smart 5 also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
