Infinix’s 2020 flagship smartphone, the Zero, arrived with conspicuous geometric patterns at the back that were well complemented by a rhombus-like camera hump. Just enough to turn heads and differentiate it from the Tecno Camon 16 Premier, a device that it had so much in common with. Except for the design.
Like the Tecno Camon 16 Premier, which picked up an award for its cameras at last year’s IFA, the Infinix Zero 8 also now has something to boast of: recognition from some of the world’s leading design watchers.
The device is one of the winners of this year’s iF Design Awards, being feted in the Telecommunications category.
“Infinix Zero 8 won over the 98-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its premium materials including a tasteful combination of glass, metal and polycarbonate. Features include a 6.85” FHD+ smooth display and ultra-night & ultra-wide-angle cameras. A minimalist yet exquisite design finish is assured through gem cut surfaces. The competition was intense: almost 10,000 entries were submitted from 52 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality,” a statement from Infinix notes.
The Infinix Zero 8 is in good company with the iF Design Award it picked up. Also feted alongside it in various categories are notable mobile tech products such as the iPhone 12 Pro and the Google Pixel Buds. The CFI-ZCT1, which many of us will know as the Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) DualSense controller, is also one of the awardees.
