Infinix is a brand that we don't review too often, primarily due to its limited popularity regionally. In some markets, especially Africa and Southeast Asia, however, Infinix has its fair share of the market. To provide additional context, Infinix is one of the Chinese brands of Transsion Holding, along with other major brands such as Tecno and Itel. Also, Oraimo for accessories and Carlcare for after-sales service. But, we move away.
In fact, we've been on a bit of a roll with Infinix lately, since we just got to know the new Infinix Note 11 Pro.
And now we have the Infinix Zero X Pro for review. It is the current flagship of the Infinix line and as such is quite well equipped in terms of hardware. The price is a bit difficult to determine with precision, as the Infinix Zero X Pro is still not on sale in most of the online stores that we have checked. Some sources have hinted at an MSRP of around $ 300, which seems pretty low. Another presumably more credible price tag is around $ 456 or EUR 390 for the 256GB / 8GB variant. So it's pretty safe to assume that the base 128GB / 8GB variant should cost around $ 400.
It sounds impressive, given the kind of specs the Zero X Pro is rocking. The main triple camera setup is a big plus. It has a 108MP, f / 1.79 OIS compatible camera at the helm, as well as an 8MP, f / 2.25, 120 degree ultra-wide and last, but not least, an 8MP telephoto periscope, with 5x optics and up to 'at 60x digital zoom and OIS. All three cameras actually have autofocus, which allows the ultra-wide to serve as a macro camera. Infinix is so excited about its zoom technology that there is even a special system for photographing the moon on the Zero X Pro, dubbed the Galileo Engine.

And the camera is far from the only impressive part of the spec sheet. In no particular order, the Zero X Pro also has a large 6,67-inch AMOLED display, with 700 nits of advertised brightness and a 120Hz refresh rate, with a dedicated display controller Infinix seems particularly interested in the marketing. You also get a 4mAh battery with 500W fast charging and a stereo speaker setup.
The Zero X Pro is definitely a little different from the typical Infinix budget MO. It even has the appearance of going with the reinforced spec sheet, actually incorporating a glass back into its design. We can't wait to dive in and see how well those specs on paper translate into the real world.
But first, a quick unboxing session. The Zero X Pro comes in a sturdy cardboard box, like every other Infinix model we've seen. Unlike the Note 10 Pro and Note 11 Pro, however, it doesn't have a flashy bright green color. Infinix has instead opted for sober colors and subtle patterns. There is also a lot of cardboard inside the box to keep everything safe.
Infinix didn't skimp on the accessory pack. First, you get the 45W charger, along with a USB Type-A to Type-C cable. You'll probably want to keep it as well, as we're assuming it's designed for more current than your typical cable to fit the way Infinix configured its 45W load. Beyond that, you also get a nice textured and grippy case. It even has a nifty lip to protect the camera island. No complaints there. Finally, Infinix added a pair of wired headphones with an in-line microphone. Nothing particularly flashy, but still great added value overall.
