What is the Infinix note 4 specification?
Be patient mate!
Code named Infinix X572, it is a successor to 2016's Infinix Note 3 and currently, the most highly speced variant in the Note series.
What's the deal with the Note series?
Like most smartphone manufacturers, each of their devices is classified into series. We have Tecno's Camon, Samsung's Note, and Gionee's Marathon series, each of which has a feature that uniquely distinguishes it from other series.
On the otherhand,
Infinix's Note series features a class of devices whose main selling point are their large display size and battery capacity. This include the Hot Note, Hot Note Pro, and Hot Note 3
The new Infinix Note 4 as the fourth iteration sits comfortably in this series as it features specs that differentiate it from devices in the HOT, Zero and HOT S series.
Here's something we might both agree on:
Arguably, the Infinix Note 3 is the most popular and best smartphone from Infinix with several reasons to backup its popularity.
The Note 4 as an ungraded variant of the much admired Note 3 has more to offer, definitely not in terms of its specs sheet but its real life operation.
Why is that?
This is because the smartphone has maintained the same rear camera resolution as its predecessor, but comes with a more optimized one to offer better images.
You also get the same hardware specs in terms of RAM size and inbuilt storage capacity, but a better software version.
Want to know the best part?
Although it features a slight decrease in battery capacity than the Note 3, Infinix Mobility claims that the battery at that capacity can deliver a longer battery life.
You may be wondering:
Is the Note 4 a worthy upgrade of the Note 3 or a run for your money?
The Infinix Note 4 gsmarena specification and price in Nigeria given below will help you decide.

Display and Build
The Infinix Note 4's screen specs are one of its major highlights. It features a 5.7-inch IPS display with a full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and pixel density of 386PPI.
Here's the deal:
The display is smaller in size compared to Note 3's 6.0 Inch screen, but it maintains the same resolution. The same resolution on a smaller screen means sharper representation of text and images.
For those who found the Note 3 a little on the larger side, you may want to consider the Note 4's more moderate screen.
On the screen, is a 2.5D glass with a multi-function of giving the screen strength against scratches and cracks that may occur from falls from certain heights.
The glass protection with its rounded edges also gives users a more comfortable feel when the smartphone is operated with.
The Note 4's body is made of metal, which has several advantages over a plastic build.
For one, it makes the device look good and feel good when held.
With this build, there will be less overheating since heat produced internally will easily be lost .
But then, no one gawks at a smartphone with a plastic build anymore especially in 2017, and it is least expected for a device in the Note series to feature one.
The dimension of the Note 4 is 159 x 78.8 x 8.4 mm (height x width x thickness) and its weight is 198g.
Now let's compare it with the Note 3:
This smartphone is significantly heavier than its predecessor at 135g, but just as slim at 8.4mm.
By the way:
The Note 4 also comes with a fingerprint sensor which is embedded in front of the device and this might be a good thing.
Why is that?
With a front fingerprint sensor, you can unlock the device without having to pick it up first especially if you pick up your phone from a desk more often than you pull it from your pocket.
Before i derail further,
The Note 4's fingerprint scanner is fast and smart, and according to Infinix Mobility, it can unlock the device in 0.15 seconds.
Other than providing a better and more convenient way of securing this device, on using the sensor, dormant apps become active and privacy control can also be set for other applications on the phone.
Hardware and Software
The Infinix Note 4 is powered a Mediatek MT6753 octa-core processor with a processing speed of 1.3GHz.
But what does the Infinix Note 4's processor specs mean exactly?
The mediatek processor made offers better task scheduling and stable performance because all the 8 cores are used at the same time.
Also, there is no overheating problem and the chipset makes for a great gaming experience.
The Note 4 has 2GB of RAM and an inbuilt storage of 16GB. This storage can be expanded upto 128GB using microSD card and not at the expense of a second SIM since the expandable slot is not an hybrid slot.
Compared to its predecessor, the Note 4's hardware specs are the same.
You get the same RAM size and inbuilt storage with support for an expansion of the same capacity.
Also worthy of note is the Note 4's operating system.
This smartphone runs on Infinix's custmized user interface XOS 2.2 on top the latest Android Nougat operating system.
Let me explain:
This XOS 2.2 UI based on Nougat has several features that makes the device user friendly. Some of these features include:
- Grouped related notifications that can be directly shared or replied to.
- Doze on the go battery saving feature that makes the device more power efficient.
- Split screen mode that places two apps on the screen at the same time.
One can multitask with ease without lags and hangs with the Note 4's speedy processor and large RAM. The UI like most Android Versions is easy to use and quite appealing to the eyes.

The Note 4 features an 8MP front camera and a 13MP back camera with dual Led flash.
The front's camera resolution is an upgrade from the 5MP camera of the Note 3.
Like they say, more megapixels is a smartphone's con:
But this saying doesn't quite agree with the Note 4 because users can expect more impressive selfies from this device due to its bumped up resolution. The camera also comes with several filters that will help enhance photos.
Lets take a look at the device's rear camera:
Although people like to see a number that indicates that something is better than the other, the same cannot be said for this device's rear camera.
On its specs sheet, It still maintains the same resolution as the camera of the Note 3, but hopefully in its real life operation, it might produce better images than that of the Note 3 depending on how optimized the camera software is.
One will also have to consider the device's sensor size whose information at this time has not been provided by Infinix Mobility.
Which devices also have these 13MP and 8MP resolutions?
These camera resolutions of the Note 4 are the same on devices like the Infinix Hot S, Nokia 5, Gionee S6s and Tecno Phatom 6.
Battery and Connectivity
The battery capacity of the Infinix Note 4 is 4300mAh. This battery is non-removable and is based on Li-Po technology.
Considering the capacity and comparing it to that of Note 3, there is a slight decrease.
For most users, a 200mAh difference might mean very little while for others, their expectation has just been cut short.
Are there any improvements in the Note 4's battery?
Can the Note 4's battery also offer the same battery life or close to that of the Note 3?
For both questions, the answer is yes.
Here's what it looks like:
A smaller display tends to use less battery power, hence this device will consume less power than the Note 3.
The Note 3 featured Android Marshmallow which is just as energy efficient when it comes to power saving, but Android Nougat which the Note 4 features is even better.
According to Infinix Mobility, with a full charge, you can get upto 2 days battery life on moderate usage and about a day's battery life on heavy usage.
Unlike the Note 3 whose 5 minutes charge offered 3 hours and 20 minutes talk time, the Note 4 has been tagged 4 hours and 10 minutes talk time on 5 minutes charge.
To compliment the Note 4's fast charge feature, its 18W fast charging technology can power up the device from 0% to 45% in 30 minutes
This and many more makes this smartphone hold a promise of a longer battery life despite its reduced capacity.
What's the bottom line?
Less battery consuming screen with software that is energy efficient makes for a better battery.
What are the Infinix Note 4 Connectivity options?
For connectivity, the Infinix Note 4 supports the use of two micro SIMs. It also has a a Bluetooth, micro USB, dual-band Wi-Fi, and 4G LTE connectivity.
Its sensors include:
- Light sensor: Automatically sets the screen's brightness based on one's environment.
- G-sensor: Measures the acceleration of the phone in a straight line for instance when playing games like car racing.
- Proximity sensor: Automatically locks the Note 4 while calls are being made to prevent from mistaken key presses.
- Compass sensor: Used with apps to find the North, South, East and West directions.
