Infinix just released two new budget smartphones. One of them is the new Infinix Note 7 Lite.
As the name suggests, the Infinix Note 7 Lite is the cheaper version of the vanilla Note 7. The Helio G70 gaming processor of the former was downgraded to an Helio P22 octa-core processor. The memory was also slashed to 4GB, but the storage has the same 128GB capacity.
It will also have the same 5,000mAh battery, but the fast-charging speed was down to 10W from 18W.
Thankfully, the Infinix Note 7 Lite still has an almost-bezel-less design on the front, made possible by the punch-hole on the top-left. However, the selfie camera was downgraded to 8-megapixels.
Infinix also changed the camera design on the back. From the rounded camera bump of the vanilla model, the Lite variant has the four-camera array on a vertical orientation, with a rectangular glass protecting them. Quite similar to what the OPPO Reno 3 Pro has.
The stereo speakers are now gone, but the DTS Audio processing was kept. We also have the fingerprint scanner doubling as the lock/power switch for a cleaner look.
The pricing and availability of the Infinix Note 7 Lite are yet to be announced. We’ll have that information once they are out, so be on the lookout for that.
