The new Note 40 series from Infinix features 108MP cameras, the majority of which have OIS, and big 120Hz AMOLED panels, most of which are curved. All of them are compatible with the company's innovative magnetic wireless charging system (which requires a special case) and offer wired fast charging.

Infinix Note 40 Pro+ 5G

Although the Note 30 VIP had a similar position the previous year, this is the first Infinix Note to sport the Pro+ logo.

The Dimensity 7020, a 6nm processor with two Cortex-A78 cores running at 2.2GHz and six A55 cores running at 2.0GHz, powers the Infinix Note 40 Pro+ 5G. Up to 12GB of RAM is included with it, and virtual RAM allows for an additional 2GB of RAM.

A 55° sloping AMOLED display with curved sides is located on the front. This panel uses 2,160Hz high frequency PWM dimming to provide a peak brightness of 1,300 nits on a 120Hz 10-bit display with FHD+ resolution. Gorilla Glass shields the screen, and Infinix provides a tempered glass cover in the box as well.

With its triple camera setup, the Pro+ has a 108MP primary camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and an up to 3x in-sensor zoom. Its inability to record 4K footage is a drawback. TwoMP assistants make up the other two modules on board. I find the 32MP selfie camera to be more intriguing.

Infinix Cheetah x1 chip

The Cheetah X1, Infinix's first internal power management chip, is proudly presented. It can manage up to 100W and does safety functions in addition to charging. The 4,500mAh battery has a 1,600 cycle rating and can reach 50% capacity in under 12 minutes. Three hours of gaming or nearly seven hours of media playback should be possible with just five minutes of charging.

At 20W, wireless charging is also supported. Although it's not quite Qi 2, Infinix did create the "MagKit" magnetic charging mechanism. It can function with or without the casing (which has a unique design), and it comes with both a wireless charger and a wireless power bank. Both wireless and reverse wired charging are supported.

You might find Bypass Charging 2.0 useful for gaming, as it transfers power straight to the motherboard instead of the battery, keeping the phone 4.5°C cooler.

The phone also features a graphite sheet and a sizable vapor chamber (3,753mm2), which together lower the chipset's temperature by 7°C. On the lighter side, JBL makes stereo speakers that combine haptic feedback with the x-axis to create an immersive experience.

With an IP53 rating, the phone is splash proof and rain resistant. There are two color variations. The Vintage Green model features golden highlights on the chassis and camera bump in addition to a green leatherette back. The leatherette is removed from the Obsidian Black in favor of a black marble feel. Before we get into the pricing and launch details, let's talk about the Note 40 family reset.

Infinix Note 40 Pro 5G

Because of its curved 6.78" 120Hz AMOLED display (FHD+), Dimensity 7020, and 108MP primary camera, the Infinix Note 40 Pro 5G is comparable to the Pro+. A little more caution has been used without the "+".

To start, you have 256GB of storage (UFS 2.2 and LPDDR4X, respectively), and up to 8GB of RAM (+8GB more virtual). Additionally, the 45W over-a-wire charging technology is capped, but it still maintains the 20W wireless capability and is compatible with MagKit. Positively, the battery has a higher capacity of 5,000 mAh.

This phone, like the Pro+, has two SIM slots, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 5 (ac), and 5G connection. Additionally, there is an IR blaster and NFC on board.

There will be three years of security patches, including the one below, and two OS updates for each of the three Note 40 Pro versions. Based on Android 14, Infinix XOS 14 is included with all Note 40 devices.

Infinix Note 40 Pro

The Infinix Note 40 Pro does away with the 5G in favor of a Helio G99 chipset. It does, however, have the same amount of RAM (12GB real and 12GB virtual) as the Pro+ model. In addition, it retains the 20W MagKit charging capability and offers quicker wired charging at 70W compared to its 5G sibling. Using a 5,000mAh battery, this is the case.

Keep in mind that the lowest model offers 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. The 6.78" 120Hz display with curved corners and Gorilla Glass protection is exactly the same. Remarkably, this one has slightly greater IP54 dust and water protection.

Similar to the Pro 5G, it comes in Titan Gold and a leatherette-bound Vintage Green option (the Obsidian Black is only available on the Pro+).

Infinix Note 40

The Infinix Note 40 is fairly identical to the model above, even though it doesn't have the "Pro" designation. The main distinction is that the display is flat, which some may consider an improvement. It is still an AMOLED 6.78" FHD+ 120Hz panel.

The Helio G99, which powers the phone, has 256GB of LPDDR4X, UFS 2.2 storage and 8GB of RAM. It has a different primary camera (1/1.52" ISOCELL sensor) with a resolution of 108MP (the Note 40 Pro uses a 1/1.67" sensor).

Global release of the Infinix Note 40 series is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, March 19. The standard Pro 5G variant will cost $290, while the Infinix Note 40 Pro+ 5G model will begin at $310. Regarding the 4G variants, the base model Infinix Note 40 will cost $260, while the base Note 40 will be the least expensive at $200.
