Infinix Note 4 (a.k.a. Infinix Note 4 X572) is the 2017 iteration of Infinix’s popular Note phablet series.

Design, Display, Camera
Infinix Note 4 offers a compact design which will make it more appealing to more people. The phone features a metal body available in Champaign Gold, Milan Black, and Ice Blue. The 5.7-inch IPS display offers 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution with a 2.5D curved Glass cover for the front of the phone.
Infinix Note 4 has a microUSB port sandwiched between two speaker grilles on the lower side of the phone. The fingerprint sensor has been moved from the rear to the home button in the front. The front facing camera has been upgraded from 5 megapixels to 8 megapixels. This should result in better selfies.
Infinix Note 4 sports a 13 megapixels camera which seems similar to the Note 3 on paper, but it is likely that Infinix must have offered some improvements for a better photography. You also get dual-LED flash and phase detection autofocus.
Hardware and Software
Infinix Note 4 is powered by a Mediatek MT6753 chipset offering a 1.3GHz octa-core processor. The phablet sports 2GB RAM or 3GB RAM with 16GB or 32GB built-in storage respectively and support of up to 128GB via a microSD memory card. To add a memory card, you have to sacrifice the SIM2 slot. There is also an Infinix Note 4 Pro offering 3GB RAM and 32GB built-in storage with some other feature boost.
Infinix Note 4 is loaded with Android 7.0 (Nougat) with the Infinix XOS 2.2 UI skin introducing new Android N UI features like the Muilt-Windows feature that enables you run two apps simultaneously in a split-screen arrangement.
With the smaller size comes a smaller battery. Infinix Note 4 is offering a 4300 mAh, which is smaller than the 4500 mAh battery provided for the Note3. However, because of the smaller screen and more efficient Android 7, the Infinix Note 4 is expected to offer improved or at least comparable battery life as its predecessor.
Infinix promises up to two days of normal use. However, if you want more battery, the Infinix Note 4 Pro will maintain a 4500 mAh battery.
Infinix Note 4 offers Bluetooth 4.2, micro USB, dual-band Wi-Fi, and 4G LTE. Depending on your region, the LTE bands available to you will vary. The model of the Infinix Note 4 that we suspect will be sold in Nigeria will support MTN, Etisalat, NTel, Smile, and InterC. Another possible option will be MTN, Etisalat, NTel, and Glo Mobile.
