The phone has an aluminium frame and aluminium back with the scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 at the front. I guess the only difference between the Zero 5 and the Pro variant is that the Pro variant is available in bronze colour. The phone has a thickness of 8 mm which is quite slim and weighs 197 grams.
The display here is the same as the Zero 5. Infinix Zero 5 Pro features a 5.98 inches IPS LCD display with a FHD resolution of 1080×1920 pixels and 368 PPI density. The display has a maximum brightness of 500 nits which is quite okay under the sun. The display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on it which is scratch resistant.

The processor on this smartphone it’s quite good but I expected something better. The Infinix Zero 5 Pro is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 processor which features 4 cores clocked at 2.6 GHz and 4 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz. The phone performance is expected to be same as the Zero 5. The phone utilises Mali T880 MP2 GPU for gaming and graphics-related activities.

The rear camera features HDR, LED flash and Panorama and can record 1080p videos at 30 fps. Infinix says this phone is perfect for capturing superior quality images, even in portrait mode.
At the front, we have a 16MP camera for taking nice selfies. The front camera has a LED flash which helps in low light situations.

The phone has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor at the back for securing the device from unauthorised access.
Infinix Zero 5 Pro Review in 2020
The Infinix Zero 5 Pro is not a good device in 2020, almost all its specs and features are now outdated and obsolete. It doesn’t even have the latest software so you’ll have issues with apps that require the latest software version. There are tons of phone in the same price range with the Zero 5 Pro now that are better and newer than it.
