InFocus has been aggressively launching smartphones in the last six months. After launching InFocus Snap 4, Turbo 5, and Turbo 5 Plus smartphones, the company is back with yet another device, namely, the InFocus Vision 3. Priced at Rs 6,999, the Vision 3 is the cheapest smartphone with 18:9 display on offer. Not only the 18:9 display, the InFocus Vision 3 offers a lot more features, but disappoints in one area. Read on to find out.
InFocus Vision 3 Specifications and Features
The highlight of the Vision 3 smartphone from InFocus is that 18:9 aspect ratio display on the front. Even though it packs an HD+ ( 720 x 1440) resolution, InFocus has matched the current trend of shrinking down the bezels. InFocus also stated that the device has a screen-to-body ratio of an impressive 82.4%. The device boasts of unimetal body design, and the display has a 2.5D curved glass on top. Sadly, InFocus did not mention the protective layer used on the smartphone.
As I said, the InFocus Vision 3 disappoints in one area, which is the processor. At the heart of the phone, there’s a MediaTek MT6737 SoC, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. InFocus should have offered a Snapdragon 430 SoC, which might be a two-year-old chipset, but it’s still one of the best entry-level chipsets. Storage can be expanded up to 64GB with a microSD card.
Another highlight of the Vision 3 is the dual rear camera setup. Like the InFocus Snap 4 and Turbo 5 Plus smartphones, the Vision 3 also comes with dual cameras at the back. A 13MP primary sensor is paired with a 5MP secondary sensor, which captures wide-angle shots of 120-degree field-of-view.
InFocus followed the footsteps of HMD Global and introduced a new feature called ‘Dualfie’ with the Vision 3. The implementation is same though. When activated, this mode uses both front and rear cameras at the same time. Lastly, the phone has an 8MP selfie shooter with in-built beautification mode.
The InFocus Vision 3 runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and it’s backed by a beefy 4000mAh battery. It also comes with all the basic connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and micro USB port.
InFocus Vision 3 Pricing and Availability
Like the earlier InFocus smartphones, the Vision 3 will also be exclusive to Amazon India. It is priced at Rs 6,999 in the Indian market and will be up for sale starting 12 AM December 20. It comes in a single Black colour option.
The device seems to have excellent specifications on paper, but the mediocre MediaTek chip is a massive letdown. The device will be competing against the likes of upcoming devices such as Xiaomi Redmi 5, Moto G6 Play, etc.
