We all pretty much need a smartphone, but getting a new one can be a total pain when many flagship devices have soared up to costing around $1,000. They don’t all have to be that way, and Infinix wants to show you just what it can offer while costing less with its Note 8 smartphone.

Infinix has been growing as a global brand, and the Infinix Note 8, one of the brand’s latest and greatest smartphones, will expand its offerings even further. The Infinix Note 8 offers the looks and features we’ve come to expect from flagship phones – massive display, small cutouts for selfie cameras, numerous rear cameras, a big battery, biometric security, and speedy performance – and it fits all of this into a device that looks like the flagship smartphones we’ve come to expect. But, Infinix isn’t going to charge you the arm and leg that other smartphone makers might.

Infinix powers the Note 8 with a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset, giving it the performance it needs to handle work and play alike. You can manage your texts and emails or spend your time watching movies and playing games. The Helio G80 will be paired with 6GB of RAM to ensure it keeps up. A 5,200mAh battery will also ensure you can run for longer, and you’ll be able to charge back up quickly when you need thanks to support for 18-watt fast charging.

Of course, your ability to enjoy content or do just about anything on your phone also comes down to the screen. Fortunately, the Infinix Note 8 has you covered in that regard. The phone offers a massive, 6.95-inch display that takes up most of the front of the device, as the selfie cameras only occupy a small cutout. The display has a 20.5:9 aspect ratio that’s especially nice when you want to watch movies, since you won’t have to deal with glaring letterboxes.  With a 480-nit peak brightness, the display will also be easy to see in most environments. And, let’s not forget the dual speakers with DTS support.

When you’re done consuming content and want to make some content of your own, the Infinix Note 8 will have you covered with six separate cameras. On the rear of the phone you’ll find a 64MP main sensor that pairs with a portrait sensor to enable special focusing effects. There’s also a macro camera for serious closeups and an AI camera. The camera system also features an eye-tracking autofocus to help you get great photos of family and friends. Your selfie game will also be strong thanks to a 16MP front-facing camera that pairs with another portrait sensor on the front.

It’s not just photography that can benefit from the Infinix Note 8. This phone uses a video enhancement algorithm from Vidhance to help improve the stability and clarity of the videos it records. And, when you want to capture some quick action, you’ll find support for slow-motion video capture.

The whole Infinix Note 8 experience will come running on Android 10 with Infinix’s XOS7.1. That will offer software features like side-by-side app launching, quick note-taking with Xnote 4.0, an option to have multiple accounts for your apps, and more.
