Infinix recently launched the Infinix Note 5 in Kenya and the device is already selling on Jumia, but fans will know that there’s more to come from the Chinese company as the year trickles down. To be more specific, the company is still expected to refresh its premium lineup with a new Infinix Zero 6 (tentative name), which, of course, will be a successor to the Zero 5 and it’s Pro variant.
Now, this isn’t to say that the Infinix device that was recently benchmarked on Geekbench with model number X620B is the Infinix Zero 6, but looking at some of the specs, it’s hard to argue otherwise. In the benchmarks, the Infinix X620B has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 on board, an octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz mated with a 6GB RAM, same as what appeared on the Zero 5 duo.
In terms of software, the phone has Android 8.1 Oreo, which is the version we expect to meet on the Infinix Zero 6 out of the box. Other than these, there isn’t much we can gather from the benchmarks, but given Infinix’s recent shift to using Qualcomm chipsets, it’s possible that this could be our first look at the company’s next flagship device.
Infinix Note 5 is an Android One device. Whether this will also be true for the Infinix Zero 6 is anyone’s guess, but given my love for clean software, I wouldn’t mind such a bold move.
Also, the fact that the device’s model number is X620B suggests that there’s another variant of the same phone. Looking at previous release windows, though, we don’t expect the Infinix Zero 6 to be here until somewhere in Q4 2018.
Note that Geekbench doesn’t have the best of track records when it comes to “leaks”, so take this information with a brick of salt.
