Transsion Holdings backed Infinix brand is all set to launch a new smartphone in India on February 6. Dubbed as 'India First', it will be a selfie-centric smartphone. As per industry sources, the mid-priced segment device under the selfie-centric "S series" will first launch in India, followed by a global release later. At this moment, we don't have much information on the phone's specs and features.
That said, it is believed that the Infinix 'India First' smartphone will be equipped with a dual-tone LED flash for taking excellent quality selfies even in low-light conditions. The smartphone's cameras are also likely to come with the Bokeh Effect feature that will let users capture DSLR-like pictures with blurred background. It goes without saying, this upcoming smartphones will take on the likes of Oppo F5, Vivo V7/V7+, Honor 9 to name a few.
