Infinix had a fairly successful run in 2017, with smartphones such as the Hot S3, Zero 5, Note 4, and others. The recently launched Hot 6 Pro was also well received. Today, the company is all set to launch a new smartphone in India. The name of the smartphone isn’t known yet, but Flipkart has been teasing it, which means it will be exclusively sold via the e-commerce portal.

In its teaser, Infinix has a caption “India ka Naya Smartphone”, which hints that it will be taking on the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, that had a tagline of “India ka smartphone”. If that turns out to be true, it is likely that the smartphone will be an entry-level device priced under Rs 10,000 range. The event kicks off at 3:00PM today, and the company will also be live streaming it.
