501

Sometimes ago, earlier this year Infinix mobility release the Infinix Note 7 and Note 7 lite. Note 7 was the first Infinix smartphone to come with the powerful MediaTek Helio G70 processor and with a very iconic design. Now, a better and advanced model of the Note series, Infinix Note 8 is due to be released. It ships with a more powerful MediaTek Helio G80.

The new Infinix Note 8 comes with a number of big changes to the Note 7 predecessor, a quick one to note been the design. As opposed to the Note 7 circular arrangement of the rear camera, the Note 8 adopts the rectangular layout.

Infinix Note 8 comes with an enormous 128G internal memory with 6 Gigabyte of RAM with a dedicated slot to extend the storage with a microSDXC card. Like the Note 7, the fingerprint is side-mounted.
