However, Infinix has not made any official statement concerning S5 Pro but certainly, the phone comes in two versions and the only thing that differentiates them is the memory size.

What’s New in Infinix S5

Infinix did something new in terms of display and when you look at their Hot 8 and Infinix S4 they both offer Waterdrop Notch display but the new S5 offers Infinity-O display that doesn’t even compromise any space for the front camera but supports 32MP In-Display AI Camera with premium AI technology.

Furthermore, Infinix did well in terms of memory, 4/6GB random access memory (RAM) and 64/128GB storage memory are just perfect and those who despise Infinix Hot 8 for low memory should be happy to welcome the new S5.


Bigger and better

Infinix S5 offers a bigger display compared to most of the Infinix phones, The phone offers 6.6 inches, 20:9 aspect ratio, and cinematic wide Infinity-O display. With a slimmer bezel-less design at a 90.5% screen-to-body ratio giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in brilliant experiences.

The phone is also powered by the newest Android 9 Pie operating system bundled together with XOS 5.5 which provides customized new features based on Android™ 9 Pie. However, alongside Android 9 OS, it comes with an Octa-core 2.0 GHz processor that ensures excellent performance and stability.

Infinix S5 features a 4000mAh big battery, supported by AI power loss reduction to extend the battery life, to ensure an extended photo capturing and maximum entertainment. Moreover, battery life depends on actual usage situations.

Optimized Camera

S5 with 4 Cameras

The new S5 is equipped with powerful 4 rear cameras combined together to bring out the natural beauty in you while giving you the power to capture all the moment and event in a grand style. These 4 cameras feature 16 MP, f/1.8, (wide), PDAF 5 MP, 14mm (ultrawide) 2 MP, depth sensor and AI sensor.

Coming to the front camera, it comes with a brilliant 32MP In-Display AI Camera which keeps you in charge of your own world as it gives you the power to capture sharp, clear and vivid detailed selfie images when you want and how you want it.

4G LTE network

If you need the best data connection speed then go for 4G smartphone and you have Infinix S5 with all the best features needed in a smartphone.

I saw one comment online about Infinix Phones supporting only band 3 (1800) 4G network which they claimed that GLO and MTN doesn’t support but that’s not true you can enjoy 4G network on MTN, GLO, AIRTEL and 9MOBILE without any restriction because they have all upgraded to the band 3 (1800) 4G network. I am certain about this claim because I tested it with Infinix Hot 8.
