Infinix' Note 8 has emerged in recent leaks as a potential Redmi 9 (or Poco M2) challenger. Both phones have the same Helio G80 processor, although the latter's brand is better established. However, the newer prospect has just been approved by the FCC, revealing that it has quad rear cameras and a sizeable battery.

The emerging smartphone OEM Tecno has been rumored to have a device that may take on cost-effectiveness champions such as the Redmi 9 in the works. This device, apparently to be sold under the company's Infinix brand and be called the Note 8, was detected as running the MediaTek Helio G80 SoC on Geekbench 5. 

Now, a new entry on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) may confirm these leaks. The body has approved an Infinix device called the X692 - the same model number implicated in the Geekbench results. Its new official documentation does not confirm its processor information, although it is now much more certain that it will be a 4G/LTE device.

An obligatory rear-panel diagram also inadvertently reveals that it has an "AI Quad Camera" that is "designed by Infinix". This is apparent in some logos inscribed on its main camera module, which contains lenses in an upside-down L conformation.

There is also another graphic that strongly hints at a 64MP resolution for one of them. The new FCC database entry drops additional juicy details about the upcoming new phone, including that it has at least 1 SKU with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and is 6.89 inches in length: therefore, its display may be 6 inches across, at least.

All in all, it seems that the Infinix Note 8 is indeed shaping up as a potential thorn in the side of Redmi (not to mention Poco). It may be very competitive in markets where better-known budget phone OEMs operate - depending on how Tecno intends to price it, obviously. On that note, this new contender in the making is thought to launch in Thailand and the US thus far.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
