Infinix has been consistently launching new phones in India. Earlier this month, the company announced the Infinix Smart 4 entry-level device, and it unveiled the Infinix Hot 10 in the previous month. Fresh teasers released by the brand suggests that the company is gearing up to launch a new model in its Zero series smartphones in India. Earlier this year, Infinix announced the Zero 8 and Zero 8i phones in Indonesia and Pakistan, respectively. Hence, it seems that the company could be announcing the Zero 8 or Zero 8i or both phones in India soon.
Since the Zero 8 and Zero 8i smartphones have launched in other markets, their specifications are already known. The Zero 8 is equipped with features such as a high refresh rate display, 48-megapixel dual selfie cameras, 64-megapixel quad rear cameras, and a large-sized battery with fast charging support. The Zero 8i is a toned-down version of the Zero 8 with a different rear-facing camera setup.
