- The Infinix S5 Pro will likely retail for under Rs 10,000 in India
- The USP of the S5 Pro would be pop-up selfie camera
- Infinix S5 Pro will mostly retain the specs of Infinix S5
Infinix S5 Pro will make its debut in India next month as the country’s cheapest phone with a pop-up selfie camera. A couple of months ago, Infinix launched India’s cheapest phone with a punch-hole display in the form of Infinix S5 and S5 Lite. Expanding the S5 series, the company is all set to add Infinix S5 Pro very soon. While the Infinix S5 introduced punch-hole display tech to phones under Rs 10,000, the S5 Pro will bring pop-up selfie camera module tech to the same price bracket. The cheapest phone in India right now with a pop-up selfie camera is the Honor 9X priced at Rs 13,999. Other phones like the Realme X, Oppo F11 Pro, Oppo K3 and so on are also available around the same Rs 15,000 price bracket.
Infinix S5 Pro India Launch to Happen in February
A new report from Pricebaba says the Infinix S5 Pro will go official sometime next month. Earlier reports indicated that the phone would be available for purchase under Rs 10,000. The pop-up selfie camera module will be present on the top right corner and it will probably be a 32MP snapper. The Infinix S5 Pro will be a successor to the earlier launched Infinix S5 and the specs will mostly remain the same.
Infinix’ S series is aimed at the selfie lovers. The Infinix S3 which debuted a couple of years ago arrived with a 20MP snapper, followed by the Infinix S4 last year. Besides the Infinix S series, the company also launches phones under Infinix Hot series which are aimed at the entry-level segment. The Infinix S5, Infinix S4 and Infinix S3 all retailed for under Rs 10,000, so the upcoming Infinix S5 Pro will also carry the same sub-Rs 10,000 price tag.
