The Infinix Zero 2 (Infinix X509) is a successor to the Infinix zero with more power in a very sleek, yet solid body. Infinix Zero 2 comes with a new display, now boasting of 5-inch Super AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Infinix Zero 2 is slimmer and lighter than its predecessor. It shaved more than a millimetre off the thickness of the Zero. However, despite being sleek, the Zero 2 is in no way fragile.
The front is protected with super tough Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for unrivaled scratch resistant. Infinix Zero 2 is built in an alluminium frame with a back cover built of Kevlar fiber, which is said to be 5 times tougher than steel, while being very flexible and highly resistant.
Hardware & Software
Infinix Zero 2 is coming with a power boost. The smartphone is powered by 2.0GHz octa-core processor. This is paired with a 2GB of RAM for a smooth performance and seamless multi-tasking.
Infinix Zero 2 comes with twice the storage of the 16GB Zero, with 32GB of built-in storage. This leaves ample space for all your files and media. Infinix Zero 2 also has a model with 16GB built-in storage.
Perhaps the little disappointment that I see in the Infinix Zero 2 is that it is still coming with Android 4.4 (KitKat). A hardware this prestigious deserve some Lollipop flavouring.
Infinix Zero 2 is upgrading from an IPS is a Super AMOLED display. Super AMOLED have the advantage that they allow for a slimmer design as well as offer better battery efficiency, which can result in better battery life.
Infinix Zero 2 sports a 13 megapixels camera with faster autofocus on the back with the sensor coming from Samsung. A 5 megapixels camera is provided in the front. The camera supports smart gesture, which probably means you will be able to snap a picture by waving your hand.
