The Infinix Race Jet 4G is one of the best budget 4G devices in Kenya right now. LTE (4G) Internet recently became available in Kenya through the Safaricom network.
The Infinix Race Jet 4G is, therefore, the best budget option for those who can’t wait to try out the LTE download speeds that peak at 100 Mbps.
Here is what the Infinix Race Jet 4G has to offer.
Infinix Race Jet 4G Technical Specifications
Display Size: 5.0-Inch
Display Type: Capacitive Touchscreen
Screen Resolution: 540 x 960 Pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 220.3 ppi
The Infinix Race Jet 4G has a 5.0-inch display, which is a display size similar to the one found on the Infinix Zero. The 540 x 960 display resolution is okay for the device considering that it is in the low mid-tier segment.
Frame Dimensions: 71.5 x 143 x 8.5 mm
The Infinix Race Jet 4G has a great design concept with well rounded corners and a snake skin rear cover. This gives the device a premium appeal and is often elusive for devices in its price range.
Operating System: Android KitKat 4.4.2
CPU: MediaTek MT6582 Quad Core 1.3 GHZ
RAM: 1 GB
Internal Memory: 8 GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 32 GB
The Infinix Race Jet 4G features a Quad-core CPU, which is kind of a basic for 4G internet devices. The Race Jet runs Android KitKat 4.4.2 out of the box and there is no info on whether it will receive the Android 5.0 update.
Other than that, everything else (except 4G internet) is what you will find in most mid-range devices. 4G internet is obviously the stand out feature of the Infinix Race Jet. LTE internet is a kind of a big deal in Kenya.
The demand for online content from streaming providers is at an all-time high and 4G internet is currently your best shot for an awesome streaming experience.
Rear Camera: 8 MP
Secondary Camera: 5 MP
LED Flash: Yes
An 8MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera sounds just right for a mid-range device.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: 2020 mAh
Web browsing is one of the most common smartphone task that drains the battery. The 2020 mAh therefore, provides just enough battery juice to power your 4G browsing tasks.
Tech Trends Diary Verdict
The Infinix Race Jet 4G is in an exclusive league of its own. 4G devices were inutile in Kenya owing to the lack of the relevant network infrastructure. The introduction of 4G internet in Kenya calls for Smartphone vendors to introduce budget devices to cover this need.
OEMs are in fact active in this course and recently Motorola and Samsung publicized their plans to introduce affordable 4G devices in India.
We should, therefore, expect more 4G devices, not just from Infinix but also from the other leading smartphone vendors in Kenya.
