The first octa-core smartphone by MyPhone that we just leaked a few hours back has been finally designated as an official device at a company event. The new MyPhone Infinity is a specs beast, boasting a MediaTek CPU, 5-inch Full HD display, and 16-megapixel rear camera.
Its complete name being the MyPhone Agua Infinity, this 5-inch device bears resemblance to the Micromax Canvas Knight A350. But as our previous leak source has pointed out, the former isn’t a rebranded version of the latter. They even have minor differences in outward appearance. They do, however, come from the same phone maker Tinno Mobile.
With an octa-core processor and a Mali 450MP GPU running under the hood, the device is able to reach Antutu scores above 26,000, narrowly beating the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2. Naturally, a high benchmarking score doesn’t necessarily translate to smooth performance in actual usage, but we’re hopeful. We’ll get right back to this once we publish our official review of the MyPhone Infinity.

Note that these specs may change when MyPhone Infinity arrives in retail stores. We’ve no info on battery capacity for now, but we hope it’s able to keep the device running for hours. Both it and the back cover are non-removable. As further shown in the photo gallery above, the MyPhone Infinity has a flip cover as part of its accessories. Whether that will be provided out of the box or be sold separately remains to be seen.
Price hasn’t been revealed for the MyPhone Infinity, but it’s expected to be similar to what other local octa-core smartphones cost—the Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z2 sells for Php12,999, while the Starmobile Diamond X1 is more expensive at Php13,990. Now in production, expect the device to arrive in MyPhone stores, kiosks, and accredited dealers nationwide in the coming weeks.
