Infinix is one of the three Transsion brands, which are more popular in Africa. But the company also has a good presence in India. In fact, the three of them witnessed their highest-ever shipments in the country last year. That said, Infinix is now set to launch its first smartphone of 2021 in India in the form of Infinix SMART 5 on February 11.
For those unaware, Infinix debuted the SMART 5 first in Africa in mid-August 2020. So it does not make sense for the brand to release an old device half a year later in India. Hence, the SMART 5 launching in India next week will be the recently unveiled HOT 10 Play.
In simpler words, the Infinix SMART 5, which has been officially confirmed to launch in India on February 11 will be a rebranded Infinix HOT 10 Play, as per the official teaser posters shared by Infinix on its social media channels.
Before going official in Pakistan and the Philippines in January, the Infinix HOT 10 Play was certified by FCC in December. The device received its BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification in the same month itself. Hence, it certainly makes sense that the upcoming SMART 5 for India will be HOT 10 Play.
