The Infinix Zero X Pro is the latest flagship smartphone from Infinix. Availability is, however, generally limited to Africa and Asia. Infinix as a brand primarily targets the budget device tier, the Zero X Pro is its latest push into the mid-market range and is it’s top of the range device. That said, it’s not intended to compete with flagship devices from more well-known brands.
The Base Specs
The Infinix Zero X Pro measures 164.1 x 75.7 x 7.8 mm and weighs in at 193g. It is powered by the MediaTek Helio G95 CPU and has a 120Hz AMOLED screen.
There are three models in the Zero X range. The lowest end model is the Zero X Neo, then you have the Zero X, and the Zero X Pro we’re discussing here. Realistically, only the main differences between the models are the cameras.
The Infinix Zero X Pro has two capacities: a 128GB and a 256GB model, both featuring 8GB of RAM. Storage is expandable via microSD card.
The Infinix Zero X Pro has a 4500mAh battery. It can fast charge at 45W, which means the battery can be filled from empty in just under an hour. One thing to be aware of though, is that the charger has an unusual voltage and current pairing meaning you’ll need to use the included charger, and likely the included cable too.
The Infinix Zero X Pro has a 6.67-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400. It’s an AMOLED screen and has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch polling rate of 240Hz. One thing to note is that there’s no advertised use of toughened glass such as Gorilla Glass, so the screen may be more vulnerable to cracking. Additionally, no screen protector is included or pre-applied.
The Infinix Zero X Pro has a triple rear camera set up. The main wide-angle camera has a 108MP 1/1.52-inch sensor, however, it can’t make full use of it. The phone’s CPU only supports camera sensors of up to 64MP, it simply can’t handle higher resolution sensors. To get around this restriction, a 3×3 pixel binning process is used. This process happens on the sensor itself, and results in an entirely manageable 12MP photo. It does offer the option to take full 108MP photos, but it appears these are just upscaled versions of the 12MP photos and don’t actually provide any benefit.
The next camera is an 8MP periscope telephoto with a 1/4.4-inh sensor and a 5x optical zoom. The camera software allows this to be combined with digital zoom for a combined magnification of 60x in what it calls its “Moonshot” camera. This is because at 60x zoom, you can actually get a picture of the Moon that fills most of the phone screen. Realistically, though, photos taken at 60x zoom will be quite blurry, 10x is where the quality starts to take a noticeable dip, though your milage may vary with good lighting.
There’s also a 8MP ultrawide camera with a 1/4.0-inch sensor and a 120° field of view. The selfie camera has a 16MP 1/2.76-inch sensor. Video can be recorded in 4K30 or 1080p30 on both the front and back cameras.
The Infinix Zero X Pro runs Android 11 with the XOS 7.6 skin. This skin makes a fair number of changes to default Android and may take some getting used to.
The software includes its own custom voice assistant which can work entirely on the device with no internet connection. The latest Wi-Fi standard supported is “n” so the phone is limited to 2.4GHz networks and doesn’t support 5GHz. It supports 4G mobile data signals. There is an under display optical fingerprint reader. There’s a dual SIM tray with a dedicated MicroSD card slot, so you don’t need to choose between a second SIM and expanded storage.
The Infinix Zero X Pro is not actively sold outside of Africa and Asia, so there is no official price in dollars. In India, the smaller 128GB 8GB RAM variant is sold for around ₹21,990.00, that roughly converts to $290.
Improvements Over Previous Generations
Since the previous generation, the CPU has obviously been upgraded. The screen has also seen a big upgrade, in type, refresh rate, size, and resolution. The cameras have been upgraded, and fast charge speeds have been improved.
The Infinix Zero X Pro is certainly not your average flagship phone. It doesn’t have the highest end parts or even the latest operating system. It does, however, have a pretty decent mid-range configuration and comes at a reasonable price. While it may not be comparable to the flagship phones of many other companies, it is certainly Infinix’s flagship and has been tailored to fit the market it’s aimed at.
