MyPhone’s latest flagship gets a makeover, which employs better design cues on a much slimmer 5.1mm thin profile and packs a much powerful rig with an 8-core 64-bit chipset and 2GB RAM underneath.
Spot on, the Infinity 2 somehow gets an impression that it has a very expensive price tag at Php12,799 for a local brand, as compared to competing global brands like the Alcatel Flash Plus, Lenovo A7000, and ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE500CL, which basically all goes below the Php8K mark. Let’s take a quick look on Infinity 2’s spec sheet for some perspective.
MyPhone Infinity 2 Specs Highlights
5.0-inch HD AMOLED 720p 294ppi display
Corning Gorilla Glass 3
1.5GHz MediaTek MT6752M Octa-Core 64-bit CPU
Mali-T760 MP2 GPU
2GB RAM / 16GB ROM
64GB max on microSD
13MP rear camera with Sony IMX 214 sensor and LED flash
5MP front-facing camera
Android 4.4 Kitkat
WiFi / Bluetooth 4.0 / GPS + A-GPS
2450 mAh battery capacity
Well yeah, seems pretty comparable to at least the Flash Plus with the same CPU-GPU configuration, with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM, too. Though, Alcatel did pushed it up a bit on screen size with 5.5-inch display, front cam at 8MP, and battery capacity at 3500mAh.
But then again, what makes Infinity 2 special is its aluminum alloy build design. Actually, it’s made of Magnalium Alloy, which consists of aluminum, magnesium and a bit of copper, nickel and tin that pretty makes it twice stronger than steel, though it has almost half its weight.
That’s just gorgeous indeed, an envy to behold, too you might say. Another thing is the AMOLED display it pulls in, which definitely translates those vivid colors much costlier. And that’s at least how premium feel in the flesh. Somehow, it’s also the intricate co-dependency of design and marketing to each other as well.
So, what do you think? MyPhone Infinity 2 is already out on its stores and kiosks for Php12,799. If you got one, you can thumbs us up, share some thoughts or hands-on experience below, alright?
