The device is one of the few entry-level smartphones that runs Android Nougat. This is an advantage the device has over other devices in that category. Users can now get a test of the Android Nougat without breaking the bank.
On top the Android Nougat is XOS 2.2 Chameleon – the exclusive Infinix user interface.
Infinix Smart (also known as Infinix X5010) is a 5-inch device. The device feature high-definition display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. For a low priced 5-inch device, that is an impressive display.
The new Infinix Smart is powered by MTK MT6580 chipset. The MT6580 chipset has quad-core processor and a processor speed of 1.3GHz. The chipset is based on ARM Cortex-A7 architecture and it features Mali-400 MP GPU.
The processor of the Smartphone is coupled with 1GB RAM and a 16GB internal storage. The storage capacity is expandable to up to 32GB with the help of a micro SD card.
Here are the key specs of the Infinix Smart:
- OS: XOS Based on Android 7.0 (Nougat)
