You may not know the Infinix name yet, but you’re going to want to know the Infinix Zero 8. Whether you’re 3D gaming or 4K shooting it’s an astonishingly good smartphone for an equally astonishing price.
Infinix are new to the UK and US market but their smartphones have been wowing customers in Asia, the Middle East and Africa for many years thanks to their innovative design, powerful hardware and keen prices. And now the rest of us can see what all the fuss is about as the Zero 8 brings us high-end hardware without a high-end price tag.
Sharp looks and an even sharper screen
The Zero 8 offers an unbeatable combination of style and substance, and it’s particularly good for gamers. With a unique gem-cut body and rhombus-shaped camera inspired by the sharp lines of the Louvre Pyramid in Paris it looks spectacular, and its specifications are more spectacularly still.
Let’s start with the screen, all 6.85 inches of it. The esports-class FHD display delivers 480 nits of brightness, and with a super-smooth 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch tracking it’s more than a match for even the fastest action. And as the action heats up, the Zero 8 doesn’t. That’s because it has a state-of-the-art multi-dimensional liquid cooling system that uses ten layers of heat-dissipating material to keep you cool in the fire of battle.
Amazing group shots and selfies, even in low light
The Zero 8’s front camera is something special. It’s a 48MP+8MP dual selfie shooter with AI-powered processing for perfect portraits, 3D beautification, SLR-style bokeh effects and the ability to take ultra-wide angle selfies or group shots even in low light. It’s clever, but it isn’t big: Infinix have managed to fit the selfie camera into a hole-punch design that means it doesn’t need to take up any valuable screen space.
The rear camera is special too. It’s a 64MP Ultra Night Camera with a Sony IMX686 sensor and electronic image stabilisation for exceptional low-light shooting.
The front and rear cameras all benefit from video stabilisation, Bokeh effects, Eye AF, Super Slow-mo and Lowlight HDR. There’s also smart shake reduction and fast autofocus for smoother video recording. Whether you’re making movies or shooting selfies, the Zero 8 delivers great results every time.
Incredible power in your pocket
The Zero 8 is powered by MTK’s mighty Helio G90T octa-core processor. The performance cores are clocked at up to 2.05GHz and you can spec the Zero 8 with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
There’s clever software to match the hardware. The Zero 8 comes with the Smart Turbo v1.0 intelligent acceleration engine, which optimises your games and apps to make them smoother, make them load faster and reduce network delays. And it can switch automatically between Wi-Fi and mobile data to deliver maximum stability when you’re gaming on the go.
Fast performance sometimes means bad battery life. Not here. There’s a huge 4,500mAh battery that delivers serious stamina for even the most demanding days, and its 33W SuperCharge fast charging system can power it up from zero to 70% in just 30 minutes.
An incredible phone for an incredible price
We know what you’re thinking. A phone this good is going to come with a whopping price tag. But the Zero 8’s price is just as amazing as its design and specification. With a recommended retail price of just £230 / $305 the Infinix Zero 8 isn’t just an incredible phone. It’s incredible value for money too.
