What will Infinix Zero Ultra offer?

Not a lot has been revealed about the specifications of the upcoming smartphone, except for the 180W fast charging standard, which the company calls Thunder Charge. It will also be the most expensive variant in the company’s ‘Zero’ portfolio of smartphones.

The report claims that the Infinix Zero Ultra’s fast charging standard will be able to juice up a 4,500mAh battery to up to 50 percent power in four minutes. The report also claims that the device will offer 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, but states that the device could be a 4G smartphone.

This would suggest that the Infinix Zero Ultra could run on an older generation chip, since most updated chips today offer 5G connectivity as standard. Other specifications have not been revealed, but the report does give an indicative pricing cue of Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000 as its pricing bracket.

At this pricing, the Zero Ultra will compete against the likes of the recently launched OnePlus Nord 2T, POCO F4 5G and the iQOO Neo 5G. Each of the latter three offer new generation chipsets and 5G connectivity, even though their fast charging standard is slower than the 180W charging speed that Infinix is tipped to offer. With consumer 5G services set to commence in India soon, it remains to be seen how a smartphone without 5G at a premium price segment is revealed.

No indicative launch date is out yet about the Infinix Zero Ultra, except for a tentative time frame of “end of the year”.
