A significantly simplified version of the Infinix Note 12 is the Infinix Note 12i.
Its primary flaw is that, despite being larger, the display falls short of the Note 12 in terms of quality.
It is also more reasonably priced as a result. A 6.82-inch display, Android 12, a 50MP triple back camera, and a 5000 mAh battery are all included in the Infinix Note 12i.
This smartphone has dual-band WiFi, low energy Bluetooth 5.0, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port with OTG compatibility. Internet connectivity is limited at 4G LTE.
Display and Design
The Infinix Note 12i has a plastic frame with glass on the front. It has fewer color choices than the standard model, which is only offered in Force Black and Snowfall. unlike the normal model, this has one fewer color.
The display of the Infinix Note 12i represents the main compromise. The screen has been downgraded from AMOLED to IPS, despite the larger 6.82-inch monitor, and the resolution has been reduced from 1080 x 2400 pixels to 720 x 1650 pixels.
The Note 12’s display, which also boasts of 100% DCP-P3 color gamut, 100000:1 contrast, and up to 1000 nits of brightness, may not be as effective due to these two downgrades.
Nevertheless, the 90Hz refresh rate supported by the 12i’s display should provide a respectable quality for viewing movies, using the internet, and playing games.
Resolution and Camera
Since the Infinix Note 12i uses the same back camera as the standard edition, there doesn’t appear to have been any compromise with the rear camera. A 50 megapixel wide angle primary camera with a large 1/2.8 image sensor, f/1.6 aperture, and phase detection autofocus is included, along with a 2 megapixel depth camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a QVGA AI camera.
For its price, the rear camera ought to produce photographs of a high caliber. It has a quad-LED flash and enables 1440p video recording.
Although there was no reduction in the quality of the back camera, the front camera went from 16 to 8 megapixels. Full HD video capture with dual-LED flash is another feature.
Software, Memory and Battery
The engine inside the Infinix Note 12i is a MediaTek Helio G85. A dual-core Cortex-A75 clocked at 2.0GHz and a hexa-core Cortex-A55 clocked at 1.8GHz make up the processor’s dual-cluster design. The Tecno Camon 19 and the Tecno Spark 9 Pro both use this processor.
You receive 128GB of built-in storage and 4GB of Memory. For memory cards, the smartphone has a designated microSD slot.
The Infinix Note 12i has an advantage over the Note 12 in that, as opposed to the normal model, which debuted with Android 11, this Infinix Phone does so with Android 12 and XOS 10.6.
The Infinix Note phone comes with a 5000 mAh Li-Po battery. This ought to offer a respectable energy life. The built-in 33W fast charging capability should make charging quick as well.
