Design and Display
The Infinix Note 10 design, sort of builds on the Infinix Note 8, offering enthusiasts what can be described as a tweaked design that may appeal to enthusiasts.
Having a rear view of the Note 10 reveals a dual-tone colour system, similar to what we had on the Samsung Galaxy Quantum. Speaking of colours, the options available on this device includes Gray, Blue, Green.
The placements on this rear panel include a camera module whose highlights include triple cameras and an LED flash. Lastly, we have the OEM branding, which indicates it’s an Infinix smartphone.
Flipping to get a front view we find a 6.95 inch IPS LCD display with a dot notch in the top center position. The highlights of this display include a resolution of 1080 x 2460 Pixels, a density of 387 PPI, and a 180Hz refresh rate.
Glancing through the on-paper specs of the Infinix Note 10 reveals they aren’t an upgrade over the ones on the Infinix Note 8, it even loses some pixels in the primary camera on the rear.
On the rear, we have a 48MP primary camera, as opposed to the 64MP camera on its predecessor. We also have a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth camera. This sums up the number of rear cameras to three as opposed to being four on its predecessor.
Moving upfront we have technically got the same single 16MP camera according to the specs on paper.

Lastly, we have a non-removable 5000mAh Li-Po paired with an 18W fast charge mechanism. This data shows this battery is 200mAh less than the 5200mAh on the Note 8.
On the software side, we have the XOS 7.6 user interface running on the Android 11 operating system.
The Infinix Note 10 features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port with OTG support, low energy Bluetooth 5.0, and Wifi.
