Infinix has been hinting at launching an ‘India first’ smartphone on February 6. Now, Flipkart has put up a teaser of the upcoming smartphone series confirming that the new Infinix smartphone will be sold exclusively via the e-commerce site. The company has sent out the media invites for the launch event on February 6. From what we know, the smartphone will be placed in the mid-price segment under the company’s selfie-centric S series.

According to Flipkart‘s teaser, the smartphone will feature a bezel-less display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The upcoming smartphone is also expected to come with dual front cameras allowing users to add DSLR-like bokeh effects to the selfies. The smartphone is also likely to feature dual-LED flash on the front to help you capture brighter selfies in low-light. The image in the teaser shows slim bezels at the top and bottom. This also means that the company might place the fingerprint scanner at the back.

While rest of the specifications of the smartphone are not yet known, the smartphone is said to run on Android OS, and might come with dual-SIM card slots, 4G with VoLTE support, along with Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity options. In terms of competition, the smartphone might be up against the likes of smartphones such as the Honor 9 Lite, and Vivo V7+.

The Honor 9 Lite sports dual-camera setup at the back as well as the front. The setup includes a combination of 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel image sensors. Apart from that, it also comes with features like portrait mode, face beautification and ability to shoot 1080p videos.

The Vivo V7+, on the other hand, sports a 24-megapixel moonlight camera on the front. Vivo has added the new Beauty Mode 7.0, which works with both still images and video calls. The smartphone’s front camera also comes with a portrait mode. At the back, the Vivo V7+ features a 16-megapixel camera, with PDAF support, and f/2.0 aperture.
