The Infinix Smart 8 HD is a new smartphone from the Smart series that Infinix is about to introduce to the Indian market. The announcement states that the Infinix Smart 8 HD will make its national debut on December 8. Infinix disclosed a few days prior to the launch that Flipkart will be the only retailer of its upcoming Smart series smartphone in India.
Additionally, the brand revealed that the Infinix Smart 8 HD will cost less than Rs 6,000 in the Indian market. Recall that the company originally offered the Smart 7 HD for Rs 5,999 when it launched. Now let’s examine the specifics more closely.
Before the December 8 launch of the Infinix Smart 8 HD in India, a micro-site on Flipkart has gone live, revealing some of the most important information about the upcoming phone. This implies that Flipkart will be the only retailer where the Smart 8 HD can be bought.
Four colors will be available for purchase: Galaxy White, Shiny Gold, Timber Black, and Crystal Green for the Infinix Smart 8 HD. According to the company, the smartphone will have a timber texture finish. Additionally, Infinix confirms that the upcoming Smart series handset will have a fingerprint scanner mounted on the side that also functions as the power button. Software-based face unlocking will also be available on the smartphone.
A 6.6-inch screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz is confirmed for the Infinix Smart 8 HD. The handset from the Smart series will feature a 500nits bright display panel with HD+ resolution. The selfie camera on the front of the Smart 8 HD will be housed inside a central punch hole notch. According to Infinix, the Smart 8 HD will have a 90Hz punch-hole display, making it the first device in its class.
The Interactive Magic Ring feature, which is akin to Realme’s Mini Capsule, will also be available on the Infinix Smart 8 HD. With this feature, the Smart 8 HD can display helpful data in a pill-shaped pop-up around the camera cutout, including Low Battery Reminder, Face Unlock Amination, Charging Status, and more.
