We expected a good number of phones from Infinix this month, but one phone we never anticipated is the Infinix Smart 4 Plus and here is its price in Nigeria.
The standard version of the phone was released about a year ago. So if there would have been a Plus version, we expected it to have been released last year.
But anyway, it’s nice seeing a Plus version of the phone getting released: the standard version is a product that was widely received, and who knows if its success is what caused the creation of the Plus version.
Just like the Smart 4, the Smart 4 Plus is a cool device. The phone has only be announced, and during the first few days of its availability, it would sell at lower prices.
So if you feel you’d love the phone, then you should watch out for its availability.
As for those who feel they might like the phone, but aren’t sure, I’d be providing you more info, to make it easier making up your mind. I’d start by providing you the specs and features of the phone.
This specs and features summary would then be followed by a full discussion about the phone.
I’d further be providing information about its price.

Infinix Smart 4 Plus Price in Nigeria
The price of smart 4 plus from infinix in Nigeria is N41,500 Naira and you can get it on Jumia and offline stores.
From the perspective of design, the Smart 4 Plus is a very nice product. The device is just as pretty as you’d expect a good Infinix product to be.
The phone is quite large, and comes with a premium plastic casing. However, the front of the phone is protected by a glass, not a plastic.
The glass protecting the phone’s display is the kind you’d expect from a product of its kind.
When buying a build of this smart device, there are three colours you can choose from: midnight black, ocean wave, and violet. For lovers of simple colours, the midnight black is what you should opt in for.
You might however also find the ocean wave simple enough. As for lovers of fanciful colours, you should stay away from the first two colours, to avoid getting disappointed.
A build of the phone coming in violet, should rather be what you should consider.
In terms of thickness, the Smart 4 Plus is a little thicker. However, this doesn’t mean it is annoyingly thick.
And in terms of mass, the phone is significantly heavier. If you’ve handled a build of the standard version, you would be able to feel the difference.
The Smart 4 Plus is a phone of over 40k, so we don’t expect a poor set of hardware, and Infinix did not disappoint in this aspect.
The manufacturer rather equipped the phone with a quite impressive set hardware, although they can’t be compared to those of some of the best smartphones out there.
Starting with the processor of the phone, the Plus version is powered by the MediaTek Helio A25 chipset.
If you’ve been paying attention to the chipset powering most mid-range devices, you should have seen the name of this chipset a good number of times.
The chipset contains an octa-core processor whose cores are divided into two set of four cores. The first set of four cores can run at up to 1.50 GHz. As for the second set of four cores, they can be clocked at up to 1.80 GHz.
The processor of the MediaTek Helio A25 used a 3 GB RAM as its main memory. Tecno and Infinix have always been known to be quite stingy when it comes to RAM, but the world is moving away from the state where 2 GB is okay for mid-range phones, so I guess that’s why Infinix was left with no choice but to equip this product with a better RAM.
The GPU of the MediaTek Helio A25 is also an impressive one. The GPU of the chipset is the IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU.
You may have never heard about it, but just understand that it’s one of the best out there. We’ve seen it in a lot of devices that performed well, when it comes to gaming. And for a few years to come, this GPU would continue to have a place.
Infinix hardly disappoints in terms of display size. And I bet you’re not even worried about that. The phone comes with a 6.82-inch display, a thing majority of Nigerians would appreciate.
However, note that the 6.82-inch display of this phone doesn’t mean the device’s display looks like that of a tablet.
The device’s display is rather like that of a typical phone, although its display is quite taller. This also means you wouldn’t have to worry about whether the phone would fit into your pocket, since it isn’t too wide.
When it comes to display quality, the Smart 4 Plus is just an average phone. The resolution of the phone is 720 x 1,640 pixels.
This resolution would have made sense for a phone with a small display. But for a phone with a large display, it wouldn’t be that cool. Being more specific, the pixel density of the device is about 226 pixels per inch.
As for the brightness of the phone’s display, it’s currently unknown how the phone’s display is rated. But regardless of its rating, using the phone under the sun should be no problem.
The Android 10 operating system has started appearing in smartphones. And if you’d like to enjoy this on an Infinix device, the Smart 4 Plus can help with that.
One thing you should however note is that this product doesn’t come with the stock Android 10. The OS of the phone is rather a custom Android OS called the XOS 6.2 OS.
Would Infinix give room for an Android 11 update, when the new version becomes available? Well, this isn’t a question we can answer.
The Smart 4 Plus has been quite impressive in all aspects we have discussed so far. However, when it comes to the aspect of storage space, there is nothing special about the phone.
The phone is equipped with an eMMC 5.1 storage which comes with a capacity of 32 GB. And as many of you know, some of these storage space would be used by the phone’s OS and pre-installed app.
In other words, you might have just 16 GB left for your own use. Another thing this also means is that the device is going to come with support for micro SD card.
But when getting a micro SD card, ensure you get something which isn’t over 128 GB in capacity. The phone doesn’t have support for micro SD card larger than this, so don’t waste your time on them.
The front camera of the device is an impressive 8 MP. It doesn’t have the support of another front camera, but its other enhancements make it very impressive, when it comes to taking pictures. If you’ve ever used a good Infinix product, I don’t think I need to explain this.
As for the rear side of the phone, there are two cameras, a 13 MP camera and a depth sensor. The 13 MP camera is, of course, the main rear camera.
This camera is of course, highly enhanced. And the depth sensor is one of its numerous enhancements.
The Infinix Smart 4 Plus is a great product when you look at its specs and price in Nigeria.
It is far from being a product anyone expected. But not only is it a surprise, this product is also an item we consider worthwhile of being bought.
I strongly doubt it would end up a poor buying decision. So if you have some N41.5k, feel free to make the product your next phone.
