Budget smartphone maker Infinix has launched a new affordable smartphone in India called the Infinix Smart 5. It is a direct successor to the Infinix Smart 4 launched last year. Do note that this is different from the global version of the Infinix Smart 5 that was launched last year; instead, the new smartphone is essentially a refreshed version of the Infinix Hot 10 Play for the Indian market. The Infinix Smart 5 improves upon its antecedent in key areas such as camera hardware, chipset and storage offered. It should serve as an excellent entry-level smartphone for those on a budget. Let’s take a look at what it has in store for us.
