Infinix Smart 8 HD: Confirmed Features, Specifications

Update 04/12/2023: Infinix has confirmed that the device packs a 5000mAh battery and supports USB-C charging. It has a 13MP dual AI camera on the rear, accompanied by Quad LED lights and a Ring Flash, while there’s an improved 8MP selfie camera.

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 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.

Infinix Smart 8 HD: Expected Price

Update 04/12/2023: Infinix Smart 8 HD is to be priced competitively at under Rs 6,000, as confirmed by the brand.

Considering the Infinix Smart 8 is priced at NGN 82,000 (approx Rs 8,485) in Nigeria, the Smart 8 HD could also be priced below Rs 10,000 in India. However, nothing has been confirmed officially by the brand as of yet.
