Infinix S5, the successor to the Infinix S4 launched some couple of months ago has finally been announced by Infinix Mobility. The device is yet to be announced in Nigeria and other African markets but should be available in the coming weeks.
TECNO from the same parent company as Infinix announced its Camon 12 Air with punch-hole display and Infinix has followed suit with the S5. The Infinix S5 has a massive 6.6” HD+ display with a 20:9 aspect ratio; its front-facing punch hole houses the 32MP selfie camera.
The trend for smartphones seems to be the triple rear camera setup but the S5 ships with a quad-camera setup which is aligned vertically at the back of the device. The fingerprint sensor is also at the back although one would expect Infinix to adopt the in-display fingerprint sensor. The quad-camera setup is made up of a 16MP main sensor, 5MP ultrawide angle camera, a 2MP depth sensor camera and a low-light sensor. The ultrawide angle lens is not only for wide-angle shots, it also functions for macro video and photography for objects not far from 2.5cm away.
In terms of software, the S5 runs on Android 9 Pie based on XOS 5.5. It is powered by a Helio P22 chipset with a 4GB RAM and a 64GB internal memory which is expandable up to 256GB via the microSD card slot.
The device will start selling in India from October 21 for $125 and it will be available in two colour variants – Quetzal Cyan and Violet. For the battery, it comes with a non-removable 4000mAh battery capacity.
