ICYMI: The Infinix Note 30 5G is OVERPOWERED for PHP 10K

There are phones with too few specs, phones with just the right amount… then there’s Transsion with overspecs

The Infinix Note 30 5G was launched just a few days earlier. When it was released, we were stunned. How could they pack so much in a PHP10K package, let alone have 5G in it? The answer? Lack of software updates and ads bombarded right at you.

The spec sheet of this is unbelievable. First, you get a 6.78″ FullHD+ (2408x1080px) IPS LCD screen with 120Hz refresh rate. Inside is the “new” MediaTek Dimensity 6080 which is identical to the Dimensity 810 paired with 8GB RAM (+8GB Virtual) and a choice between 128 or 256GB ROM and the freedom to add a MicroSD Card to expand it. 256GB under 10K is something you will only see when reselling very old flagship phones.

The cameras are nothing out of the ordinary. It is a 108MP sensor paired with a depth camera. While ordinary, it’s still remarkable since phones at this price range have far fewer pixels. There’s also a 16MP punch-hole front camera for selfies and videos.

Inside is the All-Rounder battery charging tech that the company is boasting. It is a proprietary technology with the objective of keeping the phone longer by bypassing the battery while charging, similar to how a laptop functions. This one has 45W. The only phone that comes close is the Wiko T50 with 40W charging, which we have reviewed. The phone has a standard 5000mAh battery.

Among other things, the phone has 5G services, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 4G LTE, a 3.5mm jack, and Bluetooth 5.2.

Another great feature here is the JBL-tuned speakers which is a very very rare sight on a 10K budget. This means sounds and audio would feel immersive, strong, and loud.

It comes in three flavours: Sunset Orange, Magic Black, Interstellar Blue. The 8/128 trim is priced at PHP 9,499 while the 8/256 trim is available for only PHP 9,999. The pricing is quite close but that’s intentional so you would buy the higher-end 8/256 variant instead. It is available on Shopee, TikTok Shop, Lazada, and physical stores nationwide. If you want to buy the phone physically, you have to wait until June 6th.
