Earlier this week, Infinix Mobility hosted an event in Dubai where it launched the successor to its 2016 flagship smartphones, the Zero 4 and Zero 4 Pro smartphones. The Infinix Zero 5 becomes the brand’s first smartphone to sport a dual rear camera setup. Succeeding the Infinix Zero 4 comes with big expectations; does the Infinix Zero 5 deliver?

Infinix Zero 5 Specifications, Review and Highlights


The Zero 5 sports a 5.98-inch FHD display on its 2.5D curved screen offering a display resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels. There are bezels around the 5.98-inch screen which is duly protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Under direct sunlight, the screen remains visible, and its image production is sharp and enhanced thanks to its 403ppi pixel density.


A premium eye-catching metal design is framed around the Infinix Zero 5, and the device is available in Champagne Gold, Sandstone Black and Bourdeaux Red colours. At the top of the rear sits a horizontal strip that houses its dual cameras and flash, and a fingerprint scanner sits farther below it.
