Infinix Note 3 X601 comes with a bigger screen size, bigger battery life and finger print sensor. We have seen quite a few number of Infinix devices cram the fingerprint scan technology, Infinix Hot S and the unprecedented Infinix Hot 4 X557 got a share of that and this time, its the Note 3 X601 and Note 3 pro. If you’re still not aware, there’s a pro version of the Note 3; Infinix Note 3 pro X537.
There are no noticeable physical difference between the two versions, the differences lie within the internals.

It sports larger display estate of 6.0 inches, the display is in full HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels with 376 pixel per square density.
The Infinix Note 3 is shipping with Android 6.0 marshmallow with the custom XOS by Infinix, XOS is a customized operating system based on android Marshmallow, this OS is said to provide a more interactive user experience with great feature and also decreases battery draining percentage by 30%.
There will be a finger print sensor at the back of this device, this functions as a more secured way of unlocking the phone and also for controlling app permissions. There are two slots for micro SIM card and support for 4G network options.
The phone will be using a 2GB RAM and on board storage of 16GB which can be further expanded using a TF card via a dedicated card slot, it will also have a mediTek MT6573 chipset on the inside, there will be a 13 mega pixel camera at the back just above the fingerprint scanner and 5 mega pixel camera in the front, only the front camera is equipped with LED flashlight.
