Infinix S5 Pro is the latest offering from the brand for the Indian market & it is also the cheapest smartphone in India with a pop-up selfie camera. In fact last year, the Infinix S5 Lite launched in India as the cheapest smartphone with a punch-hole camera. The S5 Pro has a Full-Screen design, triple rear cameras, a Full-HD+ display & more and the price is Rs 9,999 for the Indian market.
Talking about the design of the phone, the S5 Pro comes with a Full-Screen design, so there is no notch or punch-hole. On the rear, there are triple cameras stacked vertically. The fingerprint scanner is also there on the rear since the phone has an LCD panel. There is a micro-USB port on the bottom, so that is a major con since most of the companies (like Xiaomi) are now doing away with the micro-USB port even on their budget phones to go for the Type-C port.
Specs-wise, there is a 6.53-inch Full-HD+ (2220 x 1080 Pixels) IPS LCD panel with 91% Screen to Body Ratio & 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, there is MediaTek Helio P35 SOC (12nm FinFET production process) powering this device & it features an octa-core CPU clocked at up to 2.3GHz. The GPU is IMG PowerVR GE8320. So, nothing surprising about the performance since Helio P35 is made for the budget devices.
There is 4GB RAM & 64GB internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via the dedicated MicroSD card slot.
Coming to the cameras., there is a triple camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 48 Megapixel camera with f/1.79 aperture, a 2 Megapixel depth sensor, and a third low-light sensor. The pop-up mechanism has a 16 Megapixel selfie camera. The rear camera can shoot up to Full-HD+ videos.
There is a 4,000mAH battery underneath & the phone comes with 10W charging. Android 10 runs out of the box with the company’s custom skin on top.
