As a global brand with a presence in over 40+ countries, Infinix has been able to carve a niche for itself in India’s crowded smartphone market.

And now, the company is expanding the range further with the launch of the Infinix Note 12 Pro. It’s the first smartphone in the country that draws power from the MediaTek Helio G99 chipset. But that’s not its only claim to fame. If you are curious as to why the Infinix Note 12 Pro deserves your attention, then keep reading…

The speed master

The Note 12 Pro can handle anything thrown at it with ease, all thanks to the MediaTek Helio G99 chipset under the hood. The most powerful offering the G series features an octa-core processor with two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and six Cortex-A55 cores humming at 2.0GHz. Based on the TSMC 6nm fabrication process, the SoC is power-efficient too.

The capable chip is paired with 8 gigs of LPDDR4X RAM running at 2,133MHz. For storing your data, the handset comes with 256GB UFS 2.2 storage, which can be expanded further up to 2TB via a microSD card.

Gamers would enjoy playing their favourite titles with the Mali-G57 MC2 GPU and MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 Lite. The Infinix Note 12 Pro also keeps the thermals in check with its 10-layer Graphite Block Cooling System. With a cooling surface area of over 15885 mm2, we can bet that you’d lost the track of time during gaming sessions. Adding to the experience are Linear Motor Tactile System and 4D Vibration.

For the shutterbug in you

Our smartphones have awakened the photographer within us as we love to capture our special moments – big or small – with the tap of a button. To ensure that the Infinix Note 12 Pro can capture all sorts of scenarios, it boasts a high-res 108-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL sensor accompanied by a 2MP depth shooter and an AI lens. The primary camera features a large sensor size of 1/1.67-inch and 1.92μm pixel size. It also uses pixel-binning technology to offer a highly detailed 12MP output. Of course, the large size also takes in more light which comes in handy in low-light conditions. Aiding the night photography further is the dedicated Professional Night Scene Photography mode.

Selfies are taken care of by a 16MP f/2.0 snapper up front. The best part is that there’s a dedicated dual LED flash at the fascia which means that your party selfies won’t be dull. Both the rear and front cameras can shoot 2K videos, something which bloggers would appreciate.

Tailor-made for multimedia lovers…

Speaking of the fascia, the Infinix Note 12 Pro flaunts a large 6.7-inch display. The AMOLED display promises vibrant visuals and sharp text with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. With 108 percent NTSC Ratio and 100 percent DCI P3 colour gamut, the panel also promises an accurate colour reproduction. Thanks to the peak brightness of 1000 nits, one wouldn’t struggle in using the device under harsh sunlight too. The screen is also protected against scratches with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Whether you are reading e-books, watching movies, or playing games, the display will keep you hooked. Furthermore, the screen has a 180Hz touch sampling rate which gamers would be able to harness while playing games like Battlegrounds Mobile India.

The Infinix Note 12 Pro also promises a good audio experience with dual speakers at the front featuring DTS Surround Sound.  

… with a battery that doesn’t give up

The powerful specs of the device don’t mean anything if it needs to be charged during the middle of the day. But you don’t have to worry about that with the Note 12 Pro. Infinix has packed a massive 5,000mAh Li-Po battery with its latest offering. With moderate usage, the handset will easily be able to last a day and then some more, and even with heavy usage, you wouldn’t need to juice it up before the end of the day. And when you do need to charge it up, the bundled 33W fast charger juices it up quickly.

Despite packing a beefy battery, the phone remains quite sleek. It’s 7.8mm thick and tips the scales at just 192g. The dual-tone matte finish at the back adds to the charm and the circular camera module provides the Infinix Note 12 Pro a unique character. You can purchase it in three interesting hues – Volcanic grey, Tuscany Blue, or Alpine White.
