The Infinix Note 8 has quad cameras and a 5100mAh battery, according to the FCC
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.
