The smartphone will be available on Flipkart on sale from February 18 onwards. A special launch day offer is available for Zero 5G users through which they will be able to buy Infinix Snokor (iRocker) worth Rs 999 for Rs 1 after seven days of purchase. Users can also avail of the eCommerce platform’s recently launched Flipkart Smart Upgrade Program on the device at an additional fee of INR 99. Under this plan, they can own a Zero 5G by paying only 70% of MOP value upfront. After using the device for a year, customers can either continue with it by paying the remaining 30% of the value or return it to Flipkart. In addition, customers can also avail no cost EMI option for six, nine and twelve months.
Packed with an array of top-notch features, the premium & trendy-designed device will be the first-in-segment to feature the latest processor, an expandable 8GB + 5GB RAM with 128GB ROM, big battery with superfast charging and an advanced camera to give a far-fetched smartphone experience to the consumers. The device will come in two colour variants; Skylight Orange with vegan leather back panel and Cosmic Black.
