The Infinix Note 2 is coming soon. Rumours have been circulating for some time now that Infinix Mobility was planning to release a sequel to the popular Infinix Hot Note. The new smartphone, which had earlier been christened Infinix Big 6, will be made available under the name of Infinix Note 2 – the ‘Hot’ appears to have been retired for this one.
It offers a larger display, more powerful camera, newer software and long-lasting battery life.
Display and CameraIf the 5.5-inch display on the Hot Note does not provide enough screen estate for your needs, you are likely to find the new Infinix Note 2, a chic and eye-catching device, captivating with its massive screen measuring 6 inches diagonally.
The screen resolution hasn’t yet been revealed, but it is likely to be HD since Infinix is one of those manufacturers pushing out budget offerings, which often require making a bit of concession here and there.
Infinix Note 2 packs a more powerful 13-megapixel rear camera – an upgrade on the Hot Note’s 8 megapixels – for superior, more colourful pictures. It is not yet clear if the selfie snapper has received a boost as well.
Miscellaneous Specs and FeaturesOne of the Infinix Hot Note’s claims to fame was its amazing battery life; the Infinix Note 2 looks ready to continue along the same line. The new smartphone also uses a 4000mAh battery – probably based on Lithium-Polymer technology as well – with a promise of two-day battery life.
The large juicer supports fast charging technology to enable you get up to eight hours of use in just 15 minutes of charging.
Infinix Note 2 will run on newer Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, compared to the Android 4.4 KitKat software used on its predecessor. Full hardware details of the phone have yet to be made available at this time.
But it may be right to expect at least the octa-core processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage that came with the Infinix Hot Note.
Pricing and availabilityInfinix Note 2 is not yet available in Nigeria, it is expected to launch during the Black Friday Sale exclusive to Jumia. We currently have no data on pricing. When available, Infinix Note 2 Price in Nigeria is expected to range between 27,000 to 37,000 Naira at launch, depending on your location in the country.
