The infinix Zero 8 is one of the company’s latest products, is a truly impressive phone and i will discuss its specs and price in Nigeria.
It is magnitude of times better, compared to most other Infinix products we have out there. The device comes with a premium design. The glass and the colours are also more impressive.
The computing hardware of the device are further things worthwhile of talking about. In terms of display, operating system, cameras, sensors, and battery, this device is something you’ll really appreciate.
Infinix also impressed us, in the aspect of storage. When the device was first announced, we assumed the device would come with an eMMC 5.1 storage. But after laying my hands on an actual build of the phone, I discovered the storage of the phone to be an impressive UFS 2.0 device.
The Zero 8 is truly a remarkable phone. And while the paragraph above gives an idea of what this product is all about, a full review of the phone is a thing I’m quite sure you’ll appreciate.
In fact, reviewing this product is what this content is really about. In short, if you’ll love to know more about this product, you should consider spending the next few minutes reading the rest of this content.
But, there is one thing I’ll like to state — even though I stated that the rest of this content would be a review of the Zero 8, I’ll first be providing a specs and features summary of the phone.
And after providing this specs and features summary, I’ll briefly discuss the price of the device, before jumping into the actual review of the phone.

Infinix Zero 8 Price in Nigeria
The price of Zero 8 from infinix is between 112,000 and 116,000 Naira depending on the internal storage and RAM you want to buy.
As stated earlier, Zero 8 is an impressive product from the perspective of design. Infinix devices are known to usually come with average designs.
But with the Zero 8, the company has proven to capable of really impressive designs. This also means — if you’ve been avoiding Infinix products all these while because of their designs, the Zero 8 is a product which may bring an end to that.
Giving details, the Zero 8 is a pretty large phone. It comes with a large 6.85-inch display; this should help have an idea of how large the phone is.
Or for those who have a ruler, draw a rectangle having a height of 168.7 mm and a width of 76.1 mm; then imagine the Zero to be as big as what you’ve drawn.
While the front of most Infinix devices come protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 glasses, the front of the Zero 8 features a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 glass.
But that’s not all, the device also features a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 glass on its rear side; this is definitely more impressive than the plastic rear sides we’ve always known Infinix for.
The colours of the Zero 8 are also colours you’ll appreciate. The device is available in silver diamond, black diamond, and green diamond.
These colours are all simple colours. And even if you’re a fan of flashy colours, I’m quite sure you won’t have a problem finding one of these three colours to be impressive.
With the information you’ve just read about the design of the Zero 8, I’m quite sure some of you will also expect an impressive set of computing hardware — if this is true, I can promise you won’t be disappointed.
The chipset which powers the Zero 8 is not a Qualcomm chipset (as some of you might have expected), but the chipset is a much better MediaTek chipset, compared to most of the MediaTek chipsets we have out there.
Being more elaborate, the chipset of this phone is one of MediaTek’s most impressive products, the MediaTek MT6785 Helio G90T.
The MediaTek MT6785 Helio G90T is not a popular product, but with the few hours I could spend with the Zero 8, I have no doubt the chipset will perform excellently.
I was able to test the limits of its general performance, speed, power consumption, and multitasking capability, and this product aced all the test.
The two Cortex-A76 cores of the chipset are the primary cores, while the other six Cortex-A55 cores are what get activated, when there are many tasks at hand.
While an octa-core processor of Cortex-A55 and Cortex-A76 cores is what handles the generic computing tasks of the Zero 8, the Mali-G76 MC4 is responsible for the graphics processing of the device.
This graphics processor may also not be one of the most popular mobile GPUs we have out there, but my time with the phone also showed the GPU won’t fall below expectations.
When buying a build, buyers will have the option of choosing between 6 GB of RAM and 8 GB of RAM. A RAM of 6 GB will be okay for most people. But if you have more money to spare, it’s going to be more fun using a build with 8 GB of RAM.
The display of the Zero 8 is much better, compared to those of most Infinix devices out there.
However, the phone doesn’t come with an AMOLED display, as some readers may have expected. The display of the device is rather an IPS display. But this shouldn’t bother you, as the resolution of the display makes the display of the phone quite impressive.
Being elaborate, the resolution of 1,080 x 2,460 pixels leaves the phone’s 6.85-inch display with a pixel density of about 392 pixels per inch [PPI].
The Zero 8 is a device introduced into the smartphone world this month. Phones released during this period run the Android 10 operating system. And this OS is also what the Zero 8 runs.
However, just like every other Infinix product, the OS of this device isn’t a stock Android. The device runs a custom version of the Android 10 OS.
As for those who wonder if this device is upgradable to Android 11, the answer is yes. The product is one of those Infinix products we’ve been able to confirm this about.
Even though the Zero scores impressively in almost every aspect, there are often some little “buts”. But when it comes to the aspect of storage, there is absolutely no but; in other words, you’ll completely appreciate the device in this aspect.
When trying to buy a build of the phone, you’ll have the option of choosing one of the following — 128 GB of storage, 256 GB of storage, and 512 GB of storage. 128 GB will be enough for almost anyone.
However, if you’re one of those who often demand larger storage and also have some extra cash, you can consider a 256 GB build or a 512 GB build. It is also worthwhile stating that the phone also has support for micro SD card.
Another thing worthwhile of mentioning in this aspect is that the storage devices of the Zero 8 are all UFS 2.0 storage devices. In other words, not only will you enjoy a large storage space, you’ll also get to enjoy high data-transfer speeds and bidirectional data transfers.
It is a device having four rear cameras. The main rear camera is a 64 MP camera. I was unable to determine the maker of the lens, but from the few pictures I took with it, I have no doubt you’ll be impressed.
As for the 8 MP lens, the camera is a supporting lens. It assists with ultrawideness, and I can confidently say — it does an excellent job. The two other 2 MP lenses respectively assist with depths of pictures taken and macro pictures.
While the rear cameras of the Zero 8 are enough to blow your mind, the front cameras are things to be even more excited about.
The phone features a nice 48 MP lens. I was able to take some selfies with this front camera. And after taking the selfies, I couldn’t help but send those selfies to my device, as they were just too good for me not to have.
However, the 48 MP lens is not the only thing that makes the front so exciting, the supporting lens is also a thing to be impressed about. This device comes with another front-facing lens, and this 8 MP lens assists with ultrawideness of the front camera.
Among things people are interested in knowing is if the Zero 8 has support 5G. And the answer to this is no.
However, the phone has good 2G, 3G, and 4G support, so this lack of 5G shouldn’t be a problem, if you won’t be using the phone for more than 3 years.
There’s a lot of hype around the Infinix Zero 8 and its price in Nigeria.
But while I can’t state if the phone deserves all the hype or not, I can assure you about the phone being truly impressive.
In other words, if you already love the product and you’re already considering it, you should feel free making it your next phone.
