Infinix debuts its first INBook X1 laptop for just $530 USD, promises Intel 10th gen CPUs, 1080p IPS, aluminum chassis, and Wi-Fi 6 on a budget
Known for its inexpensive Android smartphones like the Hot 10S, Infinix will now be jumping onboard the laptop train by launching its very first original Windows laptop next month called the INBook X1.
According to the press release, the 14-inch INBook X1 was inspired by Infinix's "deep understanding of consumers in the smartphone space" which we can only assume means that the laptop was built from the ground up to include all the features most budget customers are looking for. The system will come in an anodized aluminum shell with gray and red color options. Its core specifications are impressive given the low $530 USD starting price.
- 14-inch 1920 x 1080, IPS, 4.19 mm bezels
- Intel 10th gen Core i3-1005G1, i5-1035G1, or i7-1065G7
- 180-degree hinges
- Up to integrated Iris Plus G7 graphics
- 55 Wh battery
- 65 W USB-C AC adapter
- Wi-Fi 6 w/ Bluetooth 5.1
- 720p webcam
- 16.3 mm thick

Immediate comparisons to Chuwi laptops are inevitable since Chuwi is yet another Chinese manufacturer of cheap but visually impressive laptops. Unlike Chuwi, however, this Infinix model will be powered by 10th gen Intel CPUs instead of a slower Atom or Celeron part for significantly faster performance.
The INBook X1 will make its debut in Egypt, Indonesia, and Nigeria by the end of June. Launch regions are narrow as Infinix will be testing the waters before considering additional territories. Though the starting price of $530 is inexpensive, it remains to be seen how much the higher-end Core i7 option will be.
