Infinix Note 2: Specifications Full Review

It’s official, the Infinix Note 2 is finally here in Kenya. Infinix Mobility  has finnaly  released a sequel to the popular Infinix Hot Note. The new smartphone, which had earlier been christened Infinix Big 6, is now 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.

The Infinix Note 2 is probably one of the most anticipated budget Android smartphones of the year. This is mainly because the Note 2 is an update of the hot selling Infinix Hot Note Phablet. The Note 2 also offers some significant upgrades that makes it very appealing to budget smartphone buyers.

 The Infinix  Note 2 is expected to be a hit in the Kenyan market for obvious reason, the timing of its launch in festive season. This can make a perfect gift for anyone who is conscious about size, size really matters here ( 6-inch display on the Infinix Note 2).

Display and Camera : Infinix Note 2

If 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 Miscellaneous Specs and Features

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.

One 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.
