Top Features

Camera - Capturing both sides of the story

Delivering dual cameras which have never been seen or manufactured before. Both the front and rear cameras are designed with high colour duality with OIS and a dual tone flash to capture high-quality photos. Each is 13 MP and based on the Zeiss Optics technology, meaning every snapshot moment becomes a story worth sharing.

Simultaneous photo capturing with front and rear camera

Another feature of these two cameras is that photos can be captured with the front and rear cameras simultaneously. So, you can nip a shot of what is at your front and at the same time capture what is behind you. The dual image-fusion rear camera with both colour and monochrome sensors, plus a wide-angle 13 MP phase detection auto-focus front camera captures the soothing images for live sharing.

In the reality of it, if you're a lover of selfies and photos, this is your type of device. You capture live streaming to social media allowing your followers and friends to feel the experience as it occurs from your side.

Design - Made with Ultimate Craftsmanship 

The glittering and reflective appearance of the phone confirms the manufacturer's description of the rigorous, technical and painstaking stages and process the design went through before the final product was delivered.
The Nokia 8 undergoes a rigorous 40-stage process of machining, anodising and polishing to ensure its distinctive design pairs flawlessly with the polished aluminium uni-body.
This design means that with one hand you can get a firm grasps and feel, plus the aesthetic presentation. The aluminium body acts as a shock-shield to protect hardware components from being damaged in the event of fall or sudden hitting.

The edges have been slightly curved to add further gloss to the sight and appearance. Likewise, the slimmed overall design ensures convenience for one-hand operation and assures portability. The dimensions stand at 151.5 mm x 73.7 mm x 7.9 mm.

The battery capacity is fairly rated at 3090 mAh which is non-removable. With this capacity, it reaches a standby talk time of 36  hours (1.5 days) and a heavy usage time of 24 hours (1 day). This allows you to watch your favourite videos, play songs from your top music, stream online videos and watch slideshows of your fancied snapshots.


The multi-tasking capability of this phone is made possible by the Operating System on which it runs. Android 7.1.1 (Android Nougat) is an upgraded version of Nougat 7.0 which allows users to perform different tasks at the same without exiting any of the windows of open applications. This is most useful when copying information from one application to another and in comparison information on two or more different applications. You can categorise your applications into a folder, customise your launcher and themes and set the nature of the icons.

Google Pay integration allows you to install your favourite applications. By default, it is loaded with several useful applications which are commonly used and desired in smartphones. But, you can add to these by visiting your preferred apps store - Google Play recommended.


There is enough storage capacity to save as many documents, files, applications and media as you want. With a RAM size of 4 GB and an octa-core processor speed of  2.5 MHz, the speed of operation is incomparable. The ROM (internal) memory is 64 GB of type UFS2.1 and is expandable up to 256 GB via a micro SD Card.

Never be disappointed and frustrated by insufficient storage space again!


You get new dimensions of sound with standard OZO Audio technology which supports 360 degrees recording. It has a background noise reduction capability and an ambient sound reduction functionality that lets you accentuate the right sounds.

The 4K video captures your video clips uniquely with high resolution and imagery that maintains the tone, nature and truthfulness of the sight and sound.

How to Enable or Unhide App Freezer on Infinix

The Infinix app Freezer is a very useful tool preinstalled on Infinix phones running on XOS Chameleon Operating Systems. The app contributes immensely to how users can manage the RAM space of their devices.
It simply evaluates how you use some apps after a time, and recommends that the ones that are rarely used be frozen. By freezing rarely used apps, more space is freed as frozen apps appear to be uninstalled, even though they can be unfrozen anytime.

How to Use XOS Chameleon to Hide/Unhide Apps, Pictures, Videos and Documents

With the universe transiting every day towards the mobile grid, mobile devices have become the smart tool for administrative duties, team management, communication, data storage, and other activities of high importance. The portability attached to these devices have made them so relevant that top business establishments provide their staffs with them to get things done even on the go. This is seen as a great technological leap expected to ease activities and enhance productivity.

Using mobile phones for managing accounts, staffs, personal business, large business units, government activities, and many others requires storing some confidential information on the phone. That translate to the need for security and XOS Chameleon's XHide App provides just that needed protection against unauthorised access to files, folders, and applications on the phone.

How to Freeze and Unfreeze Apps to Manage Storage Space

The Infinix Freezer App is a useful app built into the XOS Chameleon to enhance storage management, simply by preventing rarely used apps from taking up unnecessary space. It is not a new thing that some smartphones require more space for other relevant apps – e.g. Email app, social media apps, etc. - to function effectively.
However, the available space appears to be taken up by applications rarely used, and surprisingly, enormous space is consumed by these apps. Though there are several approaches such as clearing apps cache, uninstalling rarely used apps, using a cleaner, among others, using Infinix App Freezer provides the balance between safety and efficient space management.

How to lock and unlock your Android Phone with Fingerprint Sensor

As mobile technologies keep emerging and old ones improved upon, new threats equally arise. To counter the identified threats, several security measures are put in place by manufacturers at different levels and degrees to ensure that the privacy of users is kept intact. In addition, a combination of features and components - both hardware and software - have been designed to bolster the security of mobile devices aimed at protecting the confidential information of users.
One of such security measures is the development of fingerprint sensors on smartphones and other smart mobile devices. Though fingerprint sensors have been used with other devices to check security leakages, their recent inclusion in mobile phones’ development has been deemed an excellent security leap.
Recent security concerns have been centred around unauthorised access to personal information of users by individuals – malicious apps are the commonest channels for these attacks. This is easier when such phones are not…
