Infinix is branching out of the entry-level and mid-range segments with its newest smartphones. The three new Zero X series devices are the first phones from the brand to sport periscope lenses.
Infinix opted to bring periscope lenses to the Zero X, Zero X Pro, and Zero X Neo with the idea of being able to photograph the moon. All devices get a periscope lens with 5x optical and 60x digital magnification. The company combined these sensors with an algorithm it calls the Galileo Engine, which controls the camera while you take photos of the moon and later helps with processing for a clearer result.
While they all get 8-megapixel periscope lenses, the three devices get different primary sensors. The Infinix Zero X Pro comes with a 108-megapixel sensor with Optical Image Stabilization, the Zero X gets a 64-megapixel sensor with OIS, and the Zero X Neo has a 48-megapixel lens without OIS.
The three phones all get 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensors that double as macro cameras and 16-megapixel selfie cameras with dual-LED flash.
These Zero X devices run on a MediaTek Helio G95 processor. While this chipset tops out at a 90Hz refresh rate at 1080p+, Infinix paired this with MediaTek’s Intelligent Display chipset to let the Zero X and X Pro support 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate on their 6.67-inch AMOLED displays. The Zero X Neo gets a larger 6.78-inch LCD, but it only gets a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate.
The Zero X Neo also gets a different battery size and charging speed from the two other devices. It sports a larger 5,000mAh battery with 18-watt charging support. In contrast, the Zero X and X Pro get slightly smaller 4,500mAh batteries with support for 45-watt charging. All of these devices get TUV Rheinland certification for their fast-charging tech.
All three phones run on Android 11-based XOS 7.6 and 8GB of RAM. The Zero X Neo and X get 128GB of storage, while the Pro model starts at 128GB and has a 256GB option.
The Infinix Zero X Pro comes in Nebula Black, Starry Silver, and Tuscany Brown. The Zero X is available in Black and Silver. And the Zero X Neo has Black, Silver, and Bahamas Blue color options.
Infinix hasn’t shared pricing yet, stating it will vary from region to region. In the Philippines, the Infinix Zero X Pro retails for PHP 14,990 (around USD 296 converted). It comes in Nebula Black, Starry Silver, and Tuscany Brown (which swaps out the dual glass for fiberglass).

Meanwhile, the Infinix Zero X Neo is priced at PHP 10,990 (USD 218), but it’s already listed as sold out. Its color options are Nebula Black, Starry Silver, and Bahamas Blue.
