Infinix has given a sneak peek into the upcoming launch of the Infinix Smart 8 in India, following its recent debut in Nigeria. The company has spilled the beans on some key features and color choices for the Indian version of the Smart 8. It’s anticipated that the Indian model will share similarities with its global counterpart in terms of specifications. Interestingly, Infinix has also introduced another model from the Smart 8 series in India, the Infinix Smart 8 HD, which made its debut earlier this month.
In a press release, Infinix officially confirmed the imminent arrival of the Infinix Smart 8 in India, although they haven’t disclosed the exact launch date yet. The company has also revealed the design and color options for the handset. From the images shared, the phone sports a wooden-textured back panel and will be available in black, gold, and white color options.
The Indian variant of the Infinix Smart 8 is set to feature a 50-megapixel primary sensor, accompanied by an unspecified secondary AI-assisted sensor and a ring LED light unit at the back. The front camera, which comes with an LED flash, will boast an 8-megapixel sensor. Additionally, the phone will include the Magic Ring feature, similar to Apple’s Dynamic Island, displaying notifications and relevant alerts.
Considering the expected similarity with the global version, the Infinix Smart 8 in India is likely to share specifications. The global variant boasts a 6.6-inch HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness level of 500 nits.
Under the hood, the global Infinix Smart 8 is powered by an octa-core Unisoc T606 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard memory. The RAM is expandable by an additional 4GB, and storage can be extended via a microSD card. The phone runs on Android 13-based XOS 13.
Equipped with a 5,000mAh battery, the Infinix Smart 8 supports 10W wired charging through a USB Type-C port. In Nigeria, the handset is available in Crystal Green, Galaxy White, Timber Black, and Shiny Gold color options.
