The all-new Infinix Note 5 is part of Android One program, designed to deliver the best Android OS experience powered by artificial intelligence.

With the new device, users will be able to experience AI through applications like Google Assistant and Google Lens.

Android One phones have the latest AI powered innovations and security protections.

A couple of years back when Google launched the Android One Project, and Infinix was among the first manufacturers to get on board.

Back then, Android One was a project to streamline the low-end devices experience by assuring fast, frequent security patches, and two years assured update to the latest version of Android.

Many viewed it as a project for low-end devices. And that’s why most of the Android One’s then were low-end phones.

But things have changed. And this year we’ve seen even very high ends phones from Nokia are part of the Android One project.

An Android One is now lucrative as you’re not only getting good specs, you’re also getting stock untouched Android. Kind of what used to be a Nexus, kind of an affordable Pixel phone.

The Infinix Note 5 is part of the Android One Project and there are many reasons why this is exciting:

  • The Note series is a favorite among infinix users,
  • Big display, incredibly big battery, good cameras,
  • AI,
  • Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR),
  • Great user experience,
  • Assured and consistent updates.
