Infinix to Launch a Pop-Up Camera Phone for 10K INR ($140) in February
After years of development and accumulation, Transsion is now known as the “King of Africa” in the mobile phone industry. In 2018, Transsion did indeed achieve a market share of 48.71% in the African continent, while in India it accounted for the 6.72%.
Moving forward to today, according to the latest reports coming from outside of China, the brand Infinix is going to launch a device with a pop-up selfie camera. The smartphone is expected to come in February of 2020. Additionally, the handset should launch in India costing less than 10,000 rupees (about $140).
Now, considering that pop-up cameras have usually been found on higher-end phones, this low to mid-end Infinix device should have a nice advantage over other smartphones in the same category; at least as far as design is concerned.
