The Infinix Zero 3 is the latest smartphone in the market from Infinix Zero series lineup of premium devices from the manufacturer to be released in less than 12 months after the company unveiled the Infinix Zero 2 which sparked the market.
Speaking during the launch of the Zero 3, Infinix Kenya County Manager Carter Tang said that the company is intent on tapping into the youth and middle-income earning segments of the economy by offering devices that offer superior functionality at affordable rates.
“Kenya’s internet infrastructure expansion, coupled by the mobile telephony penetration, offers us a grand opportunity to expand our reach with affordable devices that deliver superior functionality,” said Tang.
The Zero 3 comes packed with interesting and unique features that takes smartphone experience to a whole new level.

This phone seems to have catered for the needs of Selfie lovers as it comes with 5MP front camera including a flash for those super cool selfies with friends.
To achieve natural supplemental lighting for enhanced details and vivid colors, the model comes with double LED flash (warm & cool light) auto-calibrates for 6000K to 2300K light based on ambient environment temperature. Ideally, you can capture “sun kissed skin” even with nighttime shooting which is not possible with most flash found in other smartphone models.
Zero 3 also has Four-lane MIPI data transfer which provides 30fps 4K ultra-clear recordings for vivid imagery as well as fast & slow motion recording hence enabling interesting compilations. The users will be able to capture moments in time, literally and also feeling the amazing next-gen 120fps slow-mo for effects on par with professional equipment.
Unlike the other traditional cameras that they scan first then you shoot an image, this one takes snapshots spontaneously. With 192 PDAF, IMX230 is a great improvement to the traditional contrast AF scanning system. PDAF calibrates instantly, especially under good lighting conditions.
Pro camera modes allow ZERO 3 to satisfy daily shooting requirements of avid users. Based on environment, setting such as ISO and shutter speed can be configured; slow shutter presets are also available. Users can produce professional photos without third-part apps. There are 8 unique filters to choose from including Memory, Whiteboard, Mono, Gorgeous, Sepia, Elegant, Fresh, and Negative. HDR mode increases motion range for enhanced details and more vibrant tones.
