With a solid record timeline and quality products, this brand will surely be loved by Rwandans as competing brands like Samsung and iphone have not strongly established giving it a window to sink into the market without major resistance. Also considering fact that those ruling the market currently produce mediocre products, this will help Infinix take over easily.
The brand has come on market with 3 models i.e HOT4lite, S2Pro and the flagship ZERO4 plus.
S2pro is anticipated to make record sales as it’s compacted with new features not seen before like the 2 front cameras and the Wefie feature which is already wowing people in Nigeria, Kenya, Eqypt and other over 48 countries worldwide where Infinix has a footprint.
With wefie, one is able to take group selfies without using a selfiestick and this is indeed a smart solution.
Zero4 plus also rules, as its made of 20.7MP rear camera and 13MP front, along with 4GB RAM and 64GB of capacity combined with a beast processor and other undisputed features.
The HOT4lite is also a solution to the med-range buyers as it comes with affordable technology making infinix an all-round brand in the mobile market
