As you can see from the specs above, the Infinix Note 3 is an upgrade when compared to the Infinix Note 2. The key selling points that Infinix will use when pushing the Note 3 are listed below.
According to Infinix, the Note 3 can get you up to 200 minutes of talk time with just 5 minutes of charring it. According to the company, this has been achieved with the inclusion of duo 4.5A charging engines with MediaTek PumpExpress fast charging technology to ensure a fast and safe charging process.
Aeroscope Cooling Technology
The Infinix Note 3 comes with Aeroscope Cooling Technology (ACT) that is made up of copper pipes that carry fluid through the phone to prevent overheating. When the phone is overheating, the fluid evaporates and the extra heat is circulated as water vapor. This is the first smartphone from Infinix that uses this technology and I will be keen to see if it works as expected.
The Infinix Note 3 comes with a 4500 mAh battery that is slightly bigger than the 4040mAh one used on the Note 2. This battery can be fully charged in 99 minutes thanks to XCharge 3.0.
The Note 3 comes with a fingerprint reader that the company says can unlock your phone in just 0.25 seconds. The fingerprint scanner can also be used as the shutter button when taking photos.
