A new Infinix model has appeared in Kenya: the Infinix Note 12i. It’s a more affordable alternative to the Note 12 and a follow-up to the Note 11i (but not a strict upgrade).

The phone arrives with a 90Hz IPS LCD display and although it is quite large at 6.82″, it is smaller than the 6.95″ 11i display. Either way, the higher refresh rate is upgrading, but the cost is that the resolution increases from FHD+ to 1640 x 720px.

This model is powered by the same Helio G85 chipset (12nm, 2x A75 + 6x A55, Mali-G52 MC2) as the Note 11i. It is associated with 4 GB of RAM and 3 GB of virtual RAM. Storage has been doubled to 128GB (keeping the microSD slot) and you get Android 12 out of the box (with XOS 10.6).

The Note 12i has a new camera with a 50MP sensor with a bright f/1.6 aperture (replacing the 11i’s 48MP, f/1.8 camera), which matches the Note 12’s camera setup. This also includes a 2MP auxiliary camera and an additional QVGA model (function unknown).

Video recording maxes out at 1440p at 30fps as before. On the front is an 8MP selfie camera, which is a downgraded version of the 16MP cameras on the Vanilla 12 and 11i.

The phone is powered by a 5000mAh battery, which supports 18W fast charging. The charger is included in the box along with a USB A to C cable, a pair of earphones (for use with the 3.5mm one) and even a basic protective case. Another note regarding audio, there are stereo speakers on board with DTS audio support.

The Infinix Note 12i is already available in some regions. For example, in Kenya it costs 20,500 KES (175 USD/170 EUR/13,500 rupees). For comparison, the standard Note 12 (with a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and Helio G88) costs KES 24,000. The Note 11i cost KES 18,500. You should also be able to find the 12i in Nigeria, where it appears to be more expensive at 100,700 NGN ($245). The model is available in three colors: Sunset Golden, Jewel Blue and Force Black.
