At an event held along the Kenyan Coast on Wednesday and graced by its new brand ambassadors, Infinix officially took the wraps off its latest smartphones, the Infinix Note 10 series.
The Infinix Note 10 series comprises the Infinix Note 10 and the Note 10 Pro.
According to Infinix, there is a variant of the Note 10 Pro that arrives with ready support for NFC (Near-Field Communication), a contactless technology that can come in handy when it comes to making contactless payments at checkout counters in physical stores and outlets (remember Lipa na M-Pesa 1Tap?) as well as other use cases like initiating music playback with compatible devices (like a whole range of Sony home theatres).
The Infinix Note 10 Pro is no stranger to us, having explored it in our early hand on video:
The Infinix Note 10 Pro features a 6.95-inch Full HD+ display with a high-refresh-rate (90Hz) and 180Hz touch-sampling rate, for faster responses when doing things like playing engaging first-person shooter games, an Helio G95 chipset from MediaTek, a 5,000mAh battery and the latest take of Infinix’s custom Android overlay, XOS.
The NFC variant of the Note 10 Pro pairs the standard 8 gigabytes of memory with a whopping 256 gigabytes of internal storage.
The Infinix Note 10 Pro’s storage is based on the new Universal Flash Storage (UFS) standard released last year, UFS 2.2. This, in a nutshell, means that users can expect faster performance (a maximum transfer of 5,830 Mb/s) thanks to the faster read-write speeds visible as a result of the move from older standards, as can be experienced on past Infinix Note smartphones and other devices.
Of course, the hero of the show is the device’s five cameras – 4 at the back and 1 on the front.
Taking advantage of built-in Artificial Intelligence smarts, they combine to deliver some of the best-in-class photography and videography experiences.
“The Note 10 Pro and Note10 Pro NFC are loaded with an intuitive AI-powered four-in-one lens comprising 120° field of view (FOV) ultra-wide angle, super macro lens, 5P lens, black and white lens and portrait lens, which are all integrated into a rear-facing 64 megapixels 6P ultra night camera,” a statement from the company points out.
We have had the device with us for a while now and we’ll be sharing this with you in the coming days – look out for that.
The standard Infinix Note 10 model is going for Kshs 17,599 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage model and Kshs 19,299 for the model with double the storage (128GB).
The Infinix Note 10 Pro’s recommended retail price is set at Kshs 26,000.
The Infinix Note 10 series devices can be purchased online or at these stores countrywide.
