Infinix NOTE 8 Unboxing: Infinix NOTE 8 is now official. Infinix officially unveiled the device last week at an event that was streamed on the Infinix Mobile YouTube channel. It was also streamed on Facebook and local tv channels NTV and KTN Home.

Infinix launched two devices, NOTE 8 and NOTE 8i.

Pre-orders for the device started on October 12th but you can now buy the phones at Infinix outlets countrywide, Kilimall and Xpark.

A review unit of the NOTE 8 was sent to us and its what we will be unboxing in this article and sharing some few things about the specs.

The packaging has the usual accessories:

The Infinix NOTE 8 is a huge beautiful phone, featuring a 6.95-inch display with a punch-hole that houses the 16MP selfie camera.

We are also getting a side-mounted fingerprint sensor located right below the volume buttons. Remember this is also what we had on the Infinix NOTE 7.

At the bottom, there’s the USB Type-C charging port, finally. It’s also here that we have the microphone, headphone jack and speaker grille.

At the bottom of the phone, there’s an Infinix logo while at the top left is where you have a rectangular camera bump that houses the quad AI-powered camera setup.

This setup includes the main 64MP camera, 2MP macro camera, 2MP depth camera and another additional 2MP AI lens.
