Infinix Zero 4 (a.k.a. Infinix X555) is the fourth generation member of the Infinix Zero series. It is an incremental upgrade compared to its predecessor, the Infinix Zero 3, with upgrades on software and camera. Though, the rear camera of the Infinix Zero 4 dropping from 20.7 megapixels to 16 megapixels may seem like a downgrade, the introduction of Optical Image Stabilisation and Laser autofocus more than makes up for it. The true upgrade to the Zero3 is the more premium Infinix Zero 4 Plus.

The Design and Display

Infinix Zero 4 features a similar 5.5-inch display as the Zero3 with the same 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. The front of the phone is covered with 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Like in the Infinix Hot 4, you have the fingerprint sensor located on the back of the phone.
On paper, you may feel like the Infinix Zero 4 offers an inferior camera compared to the Zero3. However, like Samsung and Apple has proven, the quality of a camera is not just about the raw resolution.
The Infinix Zero 4 may offer a 16 megapixels camera, but it is now adding Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and faster laser autofocus.
With OIS you can reduce blurry photos and shaky videos that result from your hand shaking while shooting or recording. This will probably result in better quality photos and fewer retakes.
Another major feature that you will appreciate in the camera of the Infinix Zero 4 is the introduction of a Pro mode for manual camera control much similar to the one on the UMi Plus. If you love having more granular control of the camera, the Pro Mode will be great for you.
The Pro Mode enables you manually control camera characteristics like exposure, shutter speed, white balance, ISO, etc. This leaves the possibilities of this camera only limited by your skill and imagination.
Infinix Zero 4 is also getting an upgrade for the front facing camera. You will get an 8 megapixels camera for selfies. The front camera supports what Infinix calls Panoramic Selfie, which enable you squeeze in more friends in a selfie. Both cameras offer LED Flash.
