So, What’s special About The Infinix Note 3
The new Infinix Note 3 not only stands out for its massive battery but it also comes with a fingerprint sensor.
Another exciting component of the Infinix Note 3 is the new Aeroscope Cooling Technology (ACT) that is made up of copper pipes that carry fluid through the phone to prevent overheating.
The smartphone comes in a new sleek premium metal body that will for sure make the gadget lovers happy!
It sheds off a stunning 1 mm of depth compared to its predecessor, measuring 8.4 mm in thickness.
This sleek metal smartphone comes in black, gold and silver options.
The Note 3 features a large 6.0″ Full HD IPS screen display with a screen resolution of 367ppi (1080 x 1920 pixels) display compared to its predecessor which had a screen resolution of 245 ppi.
These definitely translates to a more powerful viewing experience and a wider viewing angle.
Simply put, the Infinix Note 3 is great for watching movies and surfing the web.
Hardware & Software
It has a 1.3 GHz Octa-core CPU running 2GB of RAM.
There are rumours of a Note 3 Pro which is expected to have a much higher RAM.
The phone comes preloaded with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) camouflaged within the Infinix exclusive OS- The XOS Chameleon.
You have a 16GB built-in storage on the Note 3 with a microSD slot that supports up to 128GB additional storage.
According to Infinix, the Note 3 can get you up to 200 minutes of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging.
This is primarily due to the inclusion of duo 4.5A charging engines with MediaTek PumpExpress fast charging technology to ensure a fast and safe charging process.
Aeroscope Cooling Technology
As earlier stated, the essence of this technology is to prevent overheating.
This is the first smartphone from Infinix that uses this technology and I look forward to seeing it work.
The device comes with a 4500 mAh battery which is an improvement on the 4040mAh battery used on the Note 2.
This battery can be fully charged in 99 minutes thanks to XCharge 3.0.
The Note 3 also comes with a fingerprint reader like all other recent smartphone releases.
The fingerprint scanner can also be used as the shutter button when taking photos.
Like the Infinix Hot 4, the Infinix Note 3 is having its front facing camera upgraded from 2MP to 5 megapixels.
This combined with the introduction of a soft LED flash should make for great selfies and groupies.
You also have a Professional mode that will empower you to take pictures like any professional photographer around the world.
In addition, the Note 3 sports a 13 megapixels rear camera with autofocus and dual-LED flash.
The rear camera also provides PDFA autofocus technology that captures images in 0.25 sec.
As would be expected, the device comes with dual SIM card slots.
It also has download speeds of up to 150Mbps via 4G LTE as well as high-quality speakers from leading sound technology producer AAC.
