Infinix S5 is almost launching in the country, according to their local offices. The phone was launched in some markets last month, but this month, Kenyans will also have a chance to buy the device. The phone comes in two variants – Infinix S5 and Infinix S5 Lite.
The new S5 will take over the S4 announced earlier this year in the country. It features a 6.6-inch Infinity-O display, Quad Camera, 32 MP In-Display Camera, and a Quetzal bird inspired Design.
The exterior looks amazing, with that punch-hole selfie on the top left corner of the display, slim bezels on the sides, and a reduced chin. Thanks to the thin bezels, the phone comes with a 90.5% screen to body ratio. The phone upgrades from the 19:9 aspect ratio in the S4 to now a 20:9 ratio.
The display is also the largest of the S-series yet aimed at delivering a better experience while watching and playing games. At the back, the phone sports a quad-camera setup placed in a vertical array consisting of a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP lens that will take care of snapping wide pictures, and also capturing macro detail shots, a 2MP depth sensor, and a QVGA AI lens.
For selfies, a 32MP in-display camera will take care of that. Infinix says the selfie camera lens includes four exclusive modes – Slim face, Enlarge eyes, Color tone adjustment, and Smooth skin. Other specifications include 4G LTE support, Android 9.0 Pie, Helio P22 SoC, 4,000mAh battery, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The S5 and S5 Lite will come in three paint jobs – Quetzal cyan, Nebula black, and nebula violet.
