The official launch of the Infinix Zero 5 is about three to four months away and someone might point out that it is too early for leaks to be popping up but I assure you the information we have is from a credible source, sort of, ok, just take it all with a pinch of salt.
A credible source has informed Techweez that the Infinix Zero 5 will come in a metallic unibody design that can only be described as “slim and sleek”. The Zero 4 is 7.75mm thick and Infinix has made the Zero 5 slimmer, probably down to around 7.1mm. The slimmer body might mean that the Zero 5 will have a smaller battery inside, which is not exactly the kind of news you want to be reading. Our source also told us that the back is slightly curved, probably following the same design language as the Infinix Note 4.
Following the trends of 2017, the Zero 5 is said to pack dual cameras at the back. The function of the second lens is not yet known, we did not even get any mega pixel count but my guess is that the company will retain the 16MP lens from the Zero 4 and the second lens will probably be used for refocusing like we saw on the TECNO Phantom 6. Speaking of the Phantom, the design of the Zero 5’s dual cameras will be reminiscent of the same design we are likely to see on the Phantom 7.
The crown jewel of the leak is the 6GB RAM that will be packed inside the Infinix Zero 5. This is significant compared to last year’s Zero 4 which packed 3GB RAM while the Plus variant packed 4GB. We have not received any information on storage capacity but I bet you it will not be lower than 32GB.
As for the processor, we are likely to see the same MediaTek Helio X20 that we saw on the Zero 4 Plus last year, which is good enough but I would love to see the new 10nm Helio X30 instead to better place the Zero 5 at par with the competition.
None of the information we have here has been confirmed by Infinix. It is also still early enough for things to change and in case they do, don’t shoot the messenger.
