Remember the Infinix Zero X that was rumoured to be released? Well, sad news… it’s just a concept phone, meaning it won’t be coming to any regular users’ hands anytime soon.
But on the bright side, it’s official, and it just shows that Infinix is ready to go to higher levels in comparison to its competitors. The phone’s two specialties are its colour-changing back and 160W fast charging which was rumoured about a month ago. The phone also has 50W fast wireless charging to go.
Other conceptual features Infinix has added on this device include temperature control and sophisticated security mechanisms. Infinix said that they want to bring these technologies to future handsets, especially budget ones.
The dual-changing back colour is made possible by using a scientifically and physically complex electrochromic and electroluminescent technology. In simple terms, it uses light to change the colours of the back. For instance, when calling, the colour changes to silver or blue. The colour also changes when charging, and the middle of the phone, the “O” part, will also light up.
Apart from these feats, the phone also boasts a 6.7in. AMOLED display with a waterfall curved edge, with a resolution of FHD+. In front houses the 32mp selfie camera.
For the rear camera, there is a huge camera bump that when lied on a flat surface, there’s a possibility it could wobble. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just meant that the phone can hold a larger sensor. The main sensor is 64mp, while there is also an 8mp ultrawide and an 8mp telephoto that can zoom 60x digitally.
For the processor, you have a Mediatek Helio G95, a chipset comparable to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G. For its biometrics, it comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The phone comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage by default.
The battery is not the largest, coming in at 4000mAh, which is smaller in comparison to most Infinix budget handsets that come with either 5000 or 6000mAh battery. Nevertheless, it can charge in a flash with its 160W fast charging tech that could fully charge the phone in 10 minutes, a blazing fast speed! There is also a 50W wireless charging support in case you don’t like getting tangled. As an added safety mechanism, Infinix developed an 8C battery cell that could withstand higher temperatures by 18% in comparison to a 6C cell battery seen on most phones. This 8C cell battery also produces less heat prolonging the life of the battery.
The phone has 20 temperature sensors and intelligent control algorithms that keeps its temperature at bay, especially during charging. This meant that the phone can stay a relatively cool 40°C/104°F when charging.
As a concept device, the phone may not get mass produced. However, concept phones like this are meant to show what the company is capable of, or to inspire future features and designs for their mainstream handsets.
