Infinix has been launching affordable phones quite aggressively in recent times. Now, they have given a “Pro” update to their Smart 8 that launched a little while ago. This isn’t an entirely new phone though! It turns out this phone is the same one that launched as “Smart 8” in India. Regardless, we will discuss the Infinix Smart 8 Pro in further detail in this article.

Infinix Smart 8 Pro Overview:

Design and Display

The Infinix Smart 8 Pro comes in the same design as its vanilla variant, which in turn takes its cues from the iPhone. Given that, this phone comes with flat frames and fashions and a squircle camera island on the back. Three cutouts sit inside this island in the exact position as of an iPhone Pro. Other than that, it comes in four colour options: Timber Black, Shiny Gold, Galaxy White, and Rainbow Blue.

On the front, we have an LCD panel that measures 6.6 inches diagonally. Additionally, it comes in HD+ resolution that likely spans 720 x 1,600 pixels. Moreover, this screen is also capable of a 90Hz refresh rate.

Performance

Under the hood, the Infinix Smart 8 Pro packs the MediaTek Helio G36 chipset. This is an eight-core silicone that comes in a 12-nanometre fabrication process. Furthermore, this processor is relatively new, being announced in February 2023, and achieves a maximum clock speed of 2,200 MHz.

On top of that, the Infinix Smart 8 Pro comes in two memory options at 4GB, and 8GB. It most likely comes with a RAM expansion feature like its regular counterpart. On the storage side of things, it is available in 64GB and 128GB trims. In addition to that, you can further expand the storage to an unspecified capacity via a MicroSD card. Lastly, the Infinix Smart 8 Pro runs on the XOS 13 based on Android 13.

Camera and the rest

In the optics department, the Infinix Smart 8 Pro comes with a dual camera setup on the back. The primary shooter here is a 50MP sensor coupled with something the company is marketing as the “AI Lens”. In the meantime, you get an 8MP camera sitting underneath the hole-punch cutout on the front.

Infinix Magic Ring

Powering the entire system is a 5,000 mAh cell that accepts the standard 10W charging. It comes with a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack for wired connection. Meanwhile, it comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for added security. Other than that, it also offers DTS sound processing with a 200% volume boost. Lastly, going hard on the iPhone inspiration, it comes with the “Magic Ring” feature which is a knock-off of Apple’s Dynamic Island.

Infinix Smart 8 Pro Price in Nepal and Availability

In a typical Infinix fashion, the company has not specified at what price the Infinix Smart 8 Pro will be shipping. However, given the fact that this phone is similar to the Infinix Smart 8 that launched at a starting price of INR 7,499, we are assuming it will be priced similarly. As such, if and when this phone makes its way here, we expect the Infinix Smart 8 Pro price in Nepal to be NPR 12,499.
