Unveiling the Slimmer, Lighter and Tougher Infinix Zero 2
So folks, the Infinix Zero 2 has finally launched in Pakistan. We already gave you a sneak peak of the Zero 2 device and our first impression but now its time to remove the curtains. The Infinix Zero 2 is built keeping in mind 3 things, a slim design, a lighter body and a tough shell.
Display and Design
The Infinix Zero 2 comes with a 5 inch Samsung Super AMOLED HD display (1280×720), which shows vibrant colors with very less picture saturation. The contrast ratio is 30000:1 which you can actually tell when watching HD videos. The display is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection. The dimensions of the body are pretty slim (145*71.5*6.5 mm) and weighing just 118 grams, fits in the palm of your hand very well. The back of the device is its main attraction, the Zero 2 comes with a non-removable Kevlar back panel. According to the Infinix team, the material is 5 times stronger and lighter than steel, making the device pretty solid. As the back panel does not open, the dual sim card tray is on the side of the device. While the other side houses the power button, volume buttons and microSD card tray slot.
Under the Hood
The Infinix Zero 2 is no slouch when it comes to performance and power, this is due to the Media Tek 6592T 2.0 GHz Octa – Core processor with Mali 450 700 MHz GPU and 2GB DDR3 RAM. The specs seems capable enough to run even the most graphic hungry games. (Will test it out for our selves a bit later). On the memory front the device has 32GB of internal memory which has now become a standard in flagship devices. The device also houses a microSD card slot which supports up to 32GB. So, lots of memory there, which is a good thing, considering how good the cameras on the device are.
The device houses a 13 Megapixel Samsung S5K3M2 CMOS sensor with f/2.0. This means the lens can take in 18% more light in, when taking pictures in dark places. Another impressive feature is the auto focus time. It is only 0.5 seconds, so the chances of a blurry image go down quite a bit. The front of the device lies a 5 Megapixel 85 degrees wide angle camera, which when we tested was quite impressive. There are some fun features as well, one being if you think taking pictures by pressing a button or touching the screen is too main stream, then just wave or shout at the camera and it will take the picture. Cool right?
The device runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, with its own Infinix 2.0 theme on top of it. The theme seems to be pretty light considering the device had pretty smooth transitions when we tested it. The Infinix Zero 2 comes packed with various apps such as SwiftKey etc. The Infinix Zero 2 comes with various gesture functions as well. Such as tap to unlock, swipe to unlock (display is off), draw alphabets for opening various apps and much more.
Colors and Price
The Infinix Zero 2 comes in 3 stunning colors, Ammo Gold, Crimson Red and Armor Black, the Ammo Gold version is my personal favorite as it looks absolutely gorgeous. Now for the one thing everybody is waiting for, the price! Well, the Infinix Zero 2 is for just ….drum roll please….PKR 18,900 ($189). So you are getting all that for just under $200 which is amazing. This pricing will surely make the device a worthy contender in the market.
We are holding our verdict till we get our own device and take it out for a spin. That being said, the Infinix Zero 2 promises to be a more than decent device for its price tag. Till then stay tuned!
