As expected, one of the devices that accompanied the launch of Infinix’s flagship smartphone this year, the Infinix Zero 8, is also now available for purchase in the country.
The Infinix X1 smart TV is available for purchase through Infinix’s Xpark platform.
The Infinix X1 smart TV comes in 3 sizes: 32 inches, 43 inches and 55 inches.
At the moment, only the 32 and 43-inch models are available for purchase. They are going for Kshs 19,500 and Kshs 32,000 respectively.
Infinix is backing them up with a 2-year warranty, just like it is doing with the Zero 8.
Those prices bring the Infinix X1 TV series into direct competition with those from another Transsion Group brand, Syinix. Syinix A20 series TVs of the same sizes as the X1 series go for about the same prices with the X1 series marginally undercutting them.
The Infinix X1 is a follow up to the S1 smart TV the company has availed elsewhere, like in Nigeria where, according to Infinix, it became an instant hit with customers.
The Infinix X1 runs on Android TV (based on Android 9 Pie) and we know what that means, right? Chromecast support, access to many apps through the Google Play Store and more.
Users of the TV will be able to do a lot more with it using an application that is available for download and installation through the Play Store but which comes pre-installed on the Infinix Zero 8: the Infinix Life app.
The TVs support Dolby Audio.
The 43-inch model of the Infinix X1 smart TV comes with 24W speakers.
The TV features a “frameless” design that drops a top bezel opting for a clean look as well as a metal back design.
