ICYMI: The Infinix Zero X Neo and Zero X have officially landed in the Philippines!

If the Zero X Pro is too expensive for you, then these might be good alternatives! Don’t worry, the periscope cameras are left unharmed.

Last month, Infinix has unveiled the Zero X Pro with a periscopic telephoto camera in the Philippines. This phone is notable as an affordable alternative to flagship smartphones with the periscopic telephoto. A month after it was released, the company launched the Zero X Neo and the base Zero X. Both of these incorporate the design of the Zero X Pro as well as being cheaper alternatives with only a few compromises.

Because Tecno launched the Camon 18 series, it’s inevitable that the base Zero X and Zero X Neo would also come in the Philippines, as these are the former’s counterparts. We know Transsion couldn’t resist hiding this fact.

We already made an article for both the Zero X and Zero X Neo, so we’ll keep this article short.

As we said, the Zero X series has two phones in which there are compensations, in order to keep the phone affordable. While there are definitely some changes, the company made sure that the most important aspects of their phones are left intact or are only slightly changed. Hence come forth the Zero X Neo, the lowest-end phone in the series.

The Zero X Neo features a 6.78in. FHD+ IPS LCD panel with 90Hz resolution, unlike the Zero X and Zero X Pro which came with higher refresh rate as well as AMOLED panels.

The cameras are also reduced, but not so much to remove the periscope camera, which is the series’ main selling point. The phone uses a triple camera setup comprising of a 48mp main, 8mp periscopic telephoto with OIS, and a 2mp depth camera. In terms of selfies, the phone uses the standard 16mp camera on the dot notch.

Like the other two, the phone uses the Mediatek Helio G95 chipset. This chipset, while not the newest, is still very competitive in today’s midrange markets. The Zero X series is currently the company’s flagship, but in specifications, it’s safe to say it’s in the midrange sector.

The battery is rated at 5000mAh with 18W fast charging, unlike the Zero X and Zero X Pro which came with 45W, but at a slightly smaller battery rate.

For biometrics, the phone came with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It supports facial unlock, NFC, and also came with dual microphones.

The phone is priced at Php 10,990 and first appeared in IntoGadgets Shopee. Our colleagues from Infinix said that this is legitimate. The phone comes in one configuration only: 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.

The Infinix Zero X is very similar to the Pro variant with some small changes. Like the Zero X Pro, this one has a 6.67in. AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate uses the Helio G95 chipset and even comes with the same 4500mAh battery with 45W fast charging. This phone also supports the Virtual RAM feature, where it uses a part of your internal storage as the RAM. Up to 3GB could be used.

The main difference between this and the Pro comes with the camera. While the Pro version uses a higher-res 108mp sensor, the base variant uses a 64mp camera with OIS. Everything else is the same. There are two more cameras at the back: an 8mp telephoto with OIS and 60x zoom, and an 8mp ultrawide. The selfie camera remains the same, a 16mp camera.

Both phones come with the nifty Virtual RAM feature which extends the RAM for up to 3GB at the cost of your internal storage.

The phone is priced at Php 12,990. There’s only one configuration: 8GB RAM with 128GB storage. It’s available for purchase on Infinix’s Shopee.
