Infinix to offer 5G phones with MediaTek SoC, new range of Smart TVs in H2 2021: CEO

Infinix is planning to launch a handful of products in the second half of 2021. Infinix India head revealed that the company is working on developing 5G smartphones, specifically for the Indian market and their team is in talks with MediaTek for the processors. He also disclosed that new smart television sets will be released after June this year.

Infinix is a smartphone brand of Transsion Holdings LTD that focuses on Indian markets and other Southeast Asian markets. Infinix CEO, Anish Kapoor, in an interview with Gizbot revealed the future ventures of the firm.

Anish revealed that Infinix will launch two 5G-enabled smartphones in the second half of 2021. He also mentioned that Infinix has collaborated with MediaTek for the processors. As for the pricing, he said that the smartphones will be priced above Rs. 15,000 in India. From this, we can expect the smartphones to be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset.

Currently, Realme Narzo 30 Pro 5G and Realme X7 5G are powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800U and start from Rs. 16,999 and Rs 19,999 respectively. It will be an interesting rivalry among the budget 5G-enabled smartphones.

Kapoor also revealed that the company is interested in expanding the smart television set range in India. Infinix is planning to launch smart TVs under the 40-inch and 55-inch screen sizes. The upcoming smart televisions are expected to run on MediaTek processors. Presently, Infinix offers smart TVs in the 43-inch category, Infinix 43X1(Rs. 20,999), and the 32-inch category, Infinix 32X1(Rs. 11,999).

In addition to the above products, the CEO also revealed that the firm will offer 4 to 5 smartphones under the Note and Hot series. He also clarifies that Hot 10 Play will launch on April 19 in India. The smartphone has already been released in Philippines.
