Infinix has plans to unveil four new smartphones in the first half of 2020. One or more of these phones will push the company into a new market segment, probably midrange or maybe even a territory made of what are often known as flagship killers.
Today, the most premium smartphone Infinix has on the market is the Zero 6 Pro that is fast-approaching its first anniversary. Sure, one would argue that the latest Infinix S5 is a better proposition than the Zero 6 Pro, but everyone is entitled to their own perspective.
Comparisons aside, it seems we’ve just gotten our eyes on one – or two – of the four phones that Infinix plans to unveil in the first half of 2020. Codenamed Infinix X660 and X660B, these two have recently made a couple or so stops on Geekbench, giving away a few core specs that they carry.
From the look of things, the X660 and X660B are basically the same devices. Sure, there will definitely be some differences here and there, probably the number of cameras or something, but the basic stuff remain the same throughout.
I’m talking about the likes of the system on the chip (SoC) – a MediaTek 6765 unit aka Helio P35 – the base RAM of 4GB and the pre-installed software, which is the latest Android 10 OS.
Besides the above, the only other useful details we can gather from the Geekbench listings is the score for single and multi-core tests. Where the X660 managed scores of 184 and 1026, model X660B scored 175 and 1058 points respectively. Of course, this doesn’t mean much when it comes to real-life usage.
For a better perspective, the Infinix S5 has the Helio P22 SoC, which is a weaker unit compared to the Helio P35. On the other hand, the Zero 6 Pro has a Snapdragon 636 chipset, which is basically in the same category as the Helio P35.
Granted, the Infinix X660 and X660B could probably be the phones that get Infinix into new market territories this coming year.
