Infinix Note 5 VS Tecno Camon X: 2018 flagship from Infinix and Tecno. The talked about Infinix Note 5 has finally been unveiled by Infinix during an event in Dubai, UAE. The Note series is the best series from the OEM company. It’s probably my best series if am to choose. The Infinix Note 5 comes with a lot of expectations on its shoulder. Its predecessor, the Infinix Note 4 didn’t do so well in the market especially against the Infinix Note 3. So we’re hoping the new Note 5 comes out better than the Note 4 and Note 3.

In this article, the Infinix Note 5 will be compared to the Camon X from Tecno. Both Infinix and Tecno are under the same parent company, Transsion Holdings. The Camon series is among the best series Tecno has in the archives. So stay with me while I compare the new Infinix Note 5 with the Tecno Camon X.

Aside from the fingerprint sensor, they both support facial identification technology.

There’s no dual rear camera for the Infinix Note 5 unlike the Infinix Hot 6 and Hot 6 Pro. The Infinix Note 5 joins the Tecno Camon X in featuring a single rear camera with LED flash aligned in a horizontal direction at the top left corner.
