The company has just released the GT 10 Pro in India, with plans for a global release soon. This gaming-centric device has many exciting features and a competitive price, but how will it fare in the Nepalese market?
In this article, we’ll delve into the specifications, features, potential availability, and the Infinix GT 10 Pro price in Nepal (expected).
Did you know that the gaming industry is the biggest entertainment sector? According to a report from SuperData Research, the global gaming market ($159 billion) was valued at 4 times the movie industry ($41.7 billion) and 8 times the music industry ($19.1 billion). Even just the esports industry brought in $1.1 billion dollars. It is no wonder then that we’re seeing an uptick in gaming-oriented smartphones on the market. We only mention this in case anyone was wondering what’s with all the gaming phones recently.
Infinix GT 10 Pro Overview
Now say hello to the Infinix GT 10 Pro, the first dedicated gaming phone from the company. It has had powerful devices in the past, but there’s more to it than just a fast chipset. Let’s check it out.
Design and Display
The design of Infinix GT Pro 10 has a cyberpunk theme and has a customizable mini-LED light for music and light synchronization, notifications, power on, incoming calls, gaming, and charging indication. The device’s back design has a semi-transparent finish like the Nothing Phone (1) and Nothing Phone (2). Infinix ships this phone in two shades: Cyber Black and Mirage Silver.
The other key component for mobile gaming is the display – the Infinix GT 10 Pro boasts a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2400 pixels). The panel enjoys a 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate when tracking 2 fingers.
Likewise, you get a 10-bit panel with slim bezels and 900-nit peak brightness. It uses 1,920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, hardware low blue light solution, and TÜV Rheinland certification as well.
Performance and Memory
In terms of performance, the Infinix GT Pro 10 is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 8050 chipset, which is a powerful processor that is designed for gaming. This 6nm (TSMC) chip features one Cortex-A78 (3.0 GHz), three Cortex-A78 (2.6 GHz), and four Cortex-A55 (2.0 GHz) CPU cores. And handling the graphics here is Mali-G77 MC9 GPU with 9 cores.
There is only one configuration available, 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage (16GB RAM is shown in promo materials sometimes, but that includes the 8GB virtual RAM). There is a microSD slot card on board, so you can add up to 1TB of additional storage.
The GT 10 Pro is well-optimized to deliver quality frame rates and visuals for popular games like PUBG: Mobile, Genshin Impact, and Free Fire.
Not related to the gaming aspect much is the camera – the Infinix GT 10 Pro features a unique camera island housing a triple camera setup. It includes a 108-megapixel module on the rear with an f/1.75 aperture, followed by a 2MP + 2MP depth and macro combo.
On the front, there is a 32-megapixel selfie camera with dual LED flash support. The rear camera supports 4K video recording at 30fps, while the front tops out at 2K@30fps.
Battery and OS
Fueling the phone is a 5000mAh battery with 45W fast charging support. It also supports bypass charging – i.e. using a USB Power Delivery 3.0 charger to power the device directly, going around the battery. This prevents the smartphone from heating during gaming and also prolongs the battery’s life.
As for software, the phone runs on “Pure” XOS 13 with reduced bloatware and no ads as per the company. Moreover, Infinix promises to provide one major Android update and two years of security updates for all members of the GT series.
The Infinix GT 10 Pro is well-equipped in terms of connectivity, supporting dual nano-SIM cards, Wi-Fi 6, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, a 3.5mm audio jack, and USB Type-C. For security, it features an in-display fingerprint reader, along with a proximity sensor and light sensor.
In addition to its powerful hardware, the Infinix GT 10 Pro also has a number of features that are designed to make gaming more pleasant. For a gaming phone, Infinix has packed a 4D vibration technology via a z-axis linear motor. And to keep the thermals in check, you get a vapor chamber cooling on this phone that optimizes the phone’s performance by keeping it cool while you are gaming.
Before we talk about pricing and availability, an interesting highlight is the phone’s box which can transform into a passive sound amplifier or a charging holder. This is a smart and fun reuse of the packaging that enhances the overall character of the Infinix GT 10 Pro.
