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.
