On Friday afternoon/evening, I was at the Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos for the launch of Infinix’ new phablet, the Note 3. Pretty interesting event. It was themed #JIMsBigThing and I found out JIM means Jumia, Infinix, and MTN. Apparently, these three companies are in some kind of distribution, network, partnership-thingy.

In the same vein, MTN is offering Infinix Note 3 customers 7GB data for N2000 or 3GB for N1000. The General Manager, Consumer Marketing, MTN Nigeria, Richard Iweanoge said as much during the event. He also said, “the launch of this phone is coming at a time we have commenced the rollout of 4G/LTE services in the country. As such, we are excited about the possibilities that this phone brings to our customers. We also look forward to providing users with quality service and internet speeds that will enrich their digital experience.”

The phone itself looks pretty interesting. There was a lot of talk about it delivering 200 minutes of talk time on a 5-minute charge, but I’m more concerned with the 4500 mAh battery, its “water-cooling technology”, and how all that translates to real world use. It’s also got (like the Hot S) a fingerprint scanner, 13MP rear-facing camera, 5MP front-facing shooter, a 6-inch HD LCD display, fast charging…blah blah blah, enough with the talk. You’re here to see what the phone looks like. Well, here it is:
