If you didn't think it was possible to get a stunningly designed smartphone with an incredible camera that exceeds expectations at an affordable price - think again; this is the Infinix Zero 8.

The Zero 8 is the ultimate cost-effective, best-in-class flagship. It combines premium build with top-tier specs and a fantastic price. Don't just take Infinix's word for it though - the features speak for themselves.

Let's start with that screen. At 6.85 inches, it's bold, big, and with a 20.5:9 aspect ratio, perfect for watching cinema-grade content on. The FHD+ resolution means it has a pixel density of 392ppi - stunningly sharp. 

Thanks to a dual-hole punch camera cutout, there's minimal bezel, and your photos and videos will take center stage. Add to the mix a silky-smooth 90Hz refresh rate and a lightning-fast 180Hz touch sampling rate, and whether you're scrolling through a news feed or gaming like a pro, it's the perfect choice.

Then there's that camera...

Then there's that camera - there are no less than four around the back, and two on the front. The Zero 8's main 64MP is enhanced by a built-in RAW algorithm, combining stellar detail with high-performance processing. 

It can even hack low-light photos like a champion, thanks to the Zero 8's incredible Super Night Mode, which holds the shutter open and uses computational photography to bring out the best in dark scenes.

The Zero 8's dual-selfie camera also crams in the pixels, combining a 48MP+8MP resolution for clear, ultra-wide-angle selfies or group shots. There's more to this selfie camera than just specs though. Software plays a huge part in photography, and the Zero 8's selfie camera features Bokeh Effects, Eye AF, 3D Beautification and AI Detection features.

Powerful stabilization in the form of an embedded high-precision gyro stabilizer and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) 3.0 keeps Zero 8 videos looking smooth, and with 4K resolution on both the main and selfie cameras, detail is also on-point.

All the power, cool performance

Slow, laggy, and altogether unpleasant experiences will be a thing of the past with the Zero 8's mighty MTK Helio G90T processing power. With high-power cores clocking in up to 2.05GHz, alongside 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, the Zero 8 can easily handle top-tier titles, which look excellent on that display

All this power might hamper lesser handsets, which can heat up and cause performance issues when gaming, but the Zero 8 has this covered too, thanks to its best-in-class 3D liquid cooling system, which uses 10 layers of specialized heat dissipation materials to ensure peak performance at all times.

Need to game or watch all day long? A huge 4,500mAh battery makes sure you won't need to worry about running dry before the day's done, and with an incredible 33W SuperCharge, it powers up 70% in just 30 minutes. Oh, and the SuperCharger is included in the box.

Where's the compromise? Definitely not design. The Zero 8 is inspired by the iconic Louvre Pyramid in Paris; which is why it's adorned with eye-catching geometric lines, enhanced by the unique rhombus-shaped camera enclosure, which lends it a premium finish - especially when the light reflects across the polished two-tone body.

Summing up, Infinix's flagship Zero 8 is the ultimate affordable class-leading smartphone, exceeding expectations and outperforming the competition in terms of quality and price. In other words, it's the most noteworthy affordable smartphone out now, enhancing every moment of your life without costing the earth.
