If you been following DroidAfrica news, you’ll may have read that Infinix released it Note 12i in Nigeria back in the first trimesters of the month of May. The device started on the 11th of May 2022, and it came with Helio G85 CPU. That same device just made it to the global market in a new body and under a new moniker called Note 12i 2022.
Now you should understand why Infinix is tagging the year 2022 alongside the Note 12i just a day after releasing the Note 12 2023 model; because it is actually a 2022 smartphone housed in a new shell. Now what is the Infinix Note 12i 2022 all about?
All we know about Infinix Note 12i 2022
As you may already know, the initial note 12i was the smaller and most affordable option in the 12-series. Now the naming of the 2022 model have not changed that in a much margin. You are still getting an 8-core Helio G85 CPU from MedaiTek, and a set of three camera lenses pioneered by a 50-megapixel primary sensor.
The battery still remains a 5000mAh battery, although with 33W now instead of the 18W on the older model. Also, there is now an inclusion of a 4GB RAM with 64GB ROM and a 6GB RAM with 128GB ROM version. The older model had only 4GB RAM with 128GB ROM.
The frontal camera also remains an 8-megapixel lens, and the same Google Android 12 with XOS 10.6 is used out of the box. Where the major change is happening however, is on the front.
Now, the Note 12i 2022 is given a more compact 6.7-inches FHD+ screen with 1080 x 2400 pixels, a dewdrop notch and an AMOLED panel. The older model on the other hand, came in a 6.8-inches IPS screen, with a dotted notch and cheaper 720p screen screen panel.
