Transsion Holdings subsidiary Infinix has built a towering reputation in the budget and mid-range smartphone segments with its impressive lineup of smartphones released over the years. The brand, just like its sibling Tecno, is currently eyeing the high-end market and what better platform is there to launch its intentions than the Mobil World Congress (MWC). Infinix has unveiled its Concept Phone 2021 at MWC 2021.
The Infinix Concept Phone 2021 is the same as the ZeroX smartphone that has made the rounds on different occasions recently. While we were awaiting a release date, the Chinese company has now unveiled it as a concept device which means it might not be launched any time this year.
The device features a spectacular and attractive design but the feature that has caught everyone’s attention is the 160W fast charging support which the company says it features. Infinix claims the monster charging speed can take the 4000mAh battery onboard the device from 0 – 100% in just 10 minutes.
This spectacular charging technology which Infinix calls the Ultra Flash Charge system is built around an 8C battery. Infinix says the battery boasts 18% lower internal resistance compared to a 6C battery. Further, there is a Super Charge Pump onboard the device which converts the voltage going into the device via the USB-C port to the voltage that goes into the battery itself. The pump is said to be 98.6% efficient.
Apart from the monstrous 160W wired fast charging support, the Infinix concept phone also supports fast wireless charging up to 50W which isn’t any spectacular as 50W wireless charging is supported on some already existing models. However, it is still impressive.
In terms of other specs, the Infinix Concept Phone 2021 sports a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution. The display adopts a curved design on both sides. The device also utilizes a glass panel at the rear that is equally curved on both sides. There is only a thin bit of metal that separates both panels due to the nature of the curvature. Thus, the device does not have a physical button on the sides.
The flagship concept device also adopts a color-changing technology for the rear panel which keeps it glowing until it is turned off. The rear panel has the word “NOW” boldly inscribed on it, perhaps borrowed from the brand’s slogan – “The Future is Now”. The “O” ring illuminates when the phone is charging while the entire rear panel can change from silver-gray to light blue as a form of notification when there is an incoming call or such like activities. The color-changing technology is reportedly based on electrochromic and electroluminescent technology.
Further, the Infinix Concept Phone 2021 is said to feature 20 temperature sensors on different aspects of the body which ensures that the temperature is maintained under 40ºC (104ºF). If the working conditions change, there is a security feature which is activity to avoid any damage.
Another interesting aspect is the pericope lens onboard the rear aspect. The lens has a 135mm diameter and can go up to 60x magnification with digital zoom. It also houses an 8MP sensor. There are two other sensors at the rear whose configurations are not known at the moment. The front display also houses a self camera at the top left corner which looks like a hole-punch design.
The flagship phone is also bundled with a 160W charging brick. The charger uses Gallium Nitrate (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) semiconductors. It also features support for multiple protocols so that it can handle charging laptops as well as the phone.
There is no word yet on the release but we don’t expect to see this device hit the market any time soon.
