Infinix has quietly launched a new budget smartphone in Nepal exclusively via Daraz. The new Infinix Smart 5 is the successor to the Smart 4 that was launched in Nepal earlier this year. Let’s take a look at the specs, features, price, and availability of Infinix Smart 5 in Nepal. [Update: It is no longer Daras exclusive and is available from retail outlets]
Infinix Smart 5 Overview
Infinix Smart 5 is a budget device targeted towards first-time smartphone users. The highlight of the phone is its 5,000mAh battery. Similarly, it runs on Android 10 Go Edition and features DTS Audio Processing.
Design and Display
Infinix Smart 5 features a 6.6-inch IPS display with an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. The panel features a waterdrop style notch that houses the front camera. The bottom chin looks really thin for a budget device. Its thickness measures 8.75mm.
The rear panel on Infinix Smart 5 showcases a gem-cut design, which the company has used in many of its devices. The panel produces different patterns and color variations based on the angle that it is placed.
Performance and Memory
The Smart 5 is powered by a quad-core Mediatek Helio A20 chipset clocked at 1.8 GHz. So, if you prefer performance over other specs, it may not be the device for you. Talking about memory, the device is available in a 3/64GB memory configuration in Nepal. Being a budget device with underpowered specs, the device runs on Go Edition of Android 10.
The device flaunts a triple camera setup at the back led by a 13MP primary sensor. The primary camera supports autofocus. It is accompanied by two QVGA lenses. Infinix has not disclosed what these pair of lenses will be used for. It makes us believe that these QVGA lenses are marketing gimmicks. It is accompanied by a triple flash.
On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera. It is accompanied by a dual front flash. The camera uses AI algorithms for automatic retouching and background blur effects.
Rest of the specs
The main selling point of the Infinix Smart 5 is its 5,000mAh battery. The company is claiming up to 3 days of battery backup. Additionally, the device offers up to 33 hours of talk time and 35 days of standby time. It can be charged using a 10W micro USB charger. For biometrics, Infinix has included a capacitive fingerprint sensor and face unlock. The Smart 5 comes with DTS audio processing.
