I’ll be talking about the new early 2020 Infinix device that comes with a pop-up camera.
First off, there has been a lot of speculation about the new Infinix device or at least the next line up being the Infinix S6, but that may not
likely be the case, chances that it would be called an S6 is slim compared to it being called the S5 Pro so there’s that.
Just getting that out the way and why do I think it’s so, well Infinix just launched the S5 like what 2 months ago, jumping over to the S6
might be a big leap, especially in the naming scheme so this would be a simple upgrade to what made the S5 good and of course a trendy pop up
I also don’t expect a major launch, maybe a minor launch or a silent announcement.
I’ll be talking about what to expect and I’ll have timestamps in the description of this video so that you’ll get to skip ahead to
sections that you want to get quickly informed about.
For a quick refresher, Infinix has so far 6 devices in their S series Line up, S1, S2, S3, S3X, S4, and the S5 which I reviewed just about
2 months ago when it launched here and you can find that with the link in the description below.
The S5 was Infinix’s first hole-punch display device and it had a quad-camera set up on the back, with quad flash, It had 4GB of RAM and
64GB of Storage, that was the version I had as well and this costs me 53,000.
They also had a 6GB RAM version with 128GB of Storage that was 62,500.
How about this new S5 Pro that’s about to launch?
A major feature of this new Infinix device that we’re about to see would be of course having an all-screen display, pretty much the same aspect ratio and
The 6.6-inch screen that we had on the S5 but now without any distraction in-front like the hole-punch camera.
I wouldn’t be too keen on getting a 1080p display on this device, I’ll probably keep it at 720p, but an AMOLED this time maybe, please Infinix, please give
us a 1080p AMOLED display this time, please… well a major reason why I think we may not get a 1080p display but a 720p one is of course because
it’s still in the S5 lineup and if again linked below, you’ll know about the S5 lite which was a smaller version.
So now, it’s more like a completed 720p display trio, S5 Lite, S5, and S5 Pro.
Sort of like iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max… sort of.
A major reason why we’ll, of course, behaving the “true” full view display is simply that we’re getting a pop-up camera, upfront, this has been teased
and teased quite a lot and numerous articles have taken It up.
Yes, we’ll be getting our first Infinix pop-up camera.
On the right side if you look at it from the front of the left side if you look at it from the back.
Alright the next thing would be color options of course, as we’ve seen we got nebula, sort of star-filled galaxy designs all over the devices that’s the S5 Lite
and the S5, the S5 pro should follow this footstep.
It should also be in that Nebula color finish.
Last time we had it in quetzal cyan, nebula black, and violet which I think may also make comebacks this year on the new S5 Pro again.
Speculation also points towards us ditching the fingerprint reader that we had on the back previously for an In-display Fingerprint ready.
Just like what we had on the Camon 12 Pro.
I just hope it would be you know as fast as a normal fingerprint scanner.
Also in terms of ports and I/O, we may still maintain our headphone jack, speaker grille and I’m afraid a USB 2 port and not a USB Type C port.
The main reason for this minute clamor is sort of for uniformity or maybe standardization.
A lot of devices are moving towards having USB C and it easily aids in better charging speeds, faster-transferring speeds, and uniformity just like I mentioned earlier.
TypeC is small, fast and if you have a newer MacBook everything is probably already gone type c for you, and the S5 Pro may not fit into your world.
But if we get a USB C port on the S5 Pro though.. that would be good.
Specification wise, specifically for the processor, RAM and storage, we may have 2 options and it’s not exactly clear which we’ll be having.
We may be having Mediatek’s Helio P65 which is a much more capable processor than the second option.
Which is the Helio P35, comment below which one you think would be in use?
Also if you saw my S5 review, you’ll know that for the S5 Lite we had 2 options, 4 64 and 3 32, this was the same thing in
4GB RAM and 64GB storage and a 6GB RAM with a 128GB storage option.
In my speculations, we’re going to be matching the S5’s storage and ram version.
Having 128GB would be very interesting and something to look forward to, Hopefully, it doesn’t exceed that 65-70 thousand Naira mark.
As far as the battery, I don’t know if Infinix has any tricks up their sleeves to introduce a 5,000 man battery but the best bet is a 4,000 mAh
battery and in terms of Operating Systems we might be looking at Android 10 for good measure but then again, it’s sort of a 50 50 chance between that and
Cameras will remain the same in my opinion and we should have in that pop-up camera, a 32MP sensor just the same as we had on the S5,
speculations also say that it may as well be a 16MP which in my opinion would be quite a downgrade from what we’ll be getting.
On the back, however, we may just be getting a similar alternative to the Redmi Note 8, why do I say that?
Well, this may be the first time we’ll be getting a 48MP sensor on an Infinix device.
In Hierarchy as I always check it, we should have, a 48MP main sensor, a 5MP wide-angle camera, 2MP for depth and either a 2MP or VGA camera
for low light which is also a similar feature on the already existing S5.
So basically it’s just a slight build upon it.
Also guys, because of that Transsion connection, we’ll see TECNO coming out with a pop-up camera device and this is just the way the S5 sort of
pays homage to the Camon 12 Air which came out from TECNO.
Before I conclude guys, none of these are yet to be confirmed, I have reached out but I haven’t gotten any information yet but you guys could just head
on my twitter or Instagram, I’ll display the handles right here.

I’ll leave a link to where you can get the app in the description below.
Make sure you use the link below and you’ll be supporting the channel as well.
As far as the launch date, Infinix maintains that it should be this quarter, maybe this month of January actually but we’ll see how that goes.
Hopefully, it’s not just a new S5 body with a pop-up camera, I’m also seeing similar traits on the Hot 9 but that’s a discussion for another day.
