Infinix Note 5 with Android One has all the latest specs you need to have on your smartphone

Infinix, the mid-ranged smartphone maker had arrived in India a year ago. They tied up with Flipkart and brought some great smartphones back to back. They include Infinix Hot 4 Pro, Infinix Note 4 and Infinix Zero 5. Most of them were hit and this made Infinix a promising brand in India… The Note 4 was the best seller out of the lot.

This year also they have launched 3 of their smartphones that have created headlines with their sale. The three are Infinix Hot S3, Infinix Hot 6 Pro, and Infinix Smart 2… All of them are equally good and have given a tough competition to other handset makers…

Here’s the official trailer:
