The Smart 8 HD will sport a 90Hz punch-hole display, which will be 6.6-inch in size. It will have an HD+ resolution, and the company claims it will be a “Sunlight Readable display” with 500 nits peak brightness. Next, it will have a textured back panel, while there’ll be a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometrics, which it claims is “a first in its segment”.
The smartphone also comes with UFS 2.2 storage and Type C charging. The Smart 8 HD comes in four colour variants including Crystal Green, Shiny Gold, Timber Black and Galaxy White. These are the same names for the shades that the Smart 8 comes in.
Further, the specifications that have been confirmed so far for the Smart 8 HD seem similar to the Smart 8. The design that has been shared for the Smart 8 HD is also identical to the Smart 8, which means Infinix could be launching a rebranded handset in India.
