Infinix Pakistan held a bloggers meetup in Karachi a couple of days back to give a hands-on experience of their upcoming Infinix Zero 2. This phone is yet to launch officially in Pakistan — tomorrow — where we will get full details about the price. The Infinix team was kind enough to give some bloggers a hands-on of the device earlier before the launch.
Zero 2 will be the second phone by Inifnix in Pakistan. It comes with an octa-core processor, 13 megapixels camera, 5.0-inch AMOLED HD display screen, 2GB RAM, Gorilla Glass 3, 2300 mAh battery and is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat (Android 5.1 Lollipop is on its way in August!). It also has dual-SIM support. Pretty cool specs for a mid-range phone. We used the Infinix Zero 2, and were instantly in love with the body of the phone. It has a Kevlar back cover which is five times stronger than steel, but so light in weight and ultra-resistant to the usual bumps and scratches.

QMobile A1, the very first Android One phone in Pakistan, is now available for purchase. Android One was an initiative launched by Google a couple of years back to bring more people to Android with budget-friendly smartphones that run the latest Android software version. So far, Android One devices have been launched in India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Turkey etc. and now in Pakistan as well.
We haven’t yet had a hands-on with the QMobile A1, but will do so very soon and do a complete review on how this phone stacks up with rest of the low-end Android phones. Google works with local phone manufacturers for this Android One initiative, and QMobile being one of the most selling smartphone brands, it wouldn’t have made sense if Google went with another OEM.
