The Infinix Note 7 was announced recently to succeed the Infinix Note 6 of last year. The aim of this post is to give you a quick and clear difference between the two phones and to help you determine whether an upgrade is worth it.
You might struggle to find anything similar between the two phones. Not to mention, both phones have a single 16-megapixel front facing camera. And both fit in the Note series category. But… How different is the Infinix Note 7 from the Infinix Note 6?
The one major difference between the two phones is the display. The Note 7 has a larger 6.95-inch IPS display with a punch hole and a 720 x 1640 pixels, while the Note 6 boasts of a 6.1-inch 1080 x 2160 AMOLED screen that has no notch.
Interestingly, the Note 6 has a better screen than the Note 7, despite the latter’s being bigger. 720p on the close to 7-incher is peanuts to 1080p that the Note 6 has and also the Note 6 has AMOLED panel much better than the IPS screen on the Note 7. Remember the X-Pen? We shall miss it so much because unlike the Note 6, the Note 7 lacks it.
The Note 7 visibly has four sensors on the rear, in a new round combo of 48 + 2 + 2 + 2 MP, while the Note 6 has 3 cams merging a 16-megapixel sensor with an 8 MP and a 2 MP auxiliary sensor.
Performance and Software
The Note 7 has the new Mediatek Helio G70, which is better than the Helio P35 in the Note 6. Both phone’s CPUs are octa-core, and much as the Helio P35 is clocked at 2.3GHz while Helio G70 is at just 2.0GHz, the G70 is based on ARM Cortex-A75 while the P35 is based on Cortex-A53.
Plus, the Note 7 is built for gaming giving it a much better Graphic Processor than the Note 6. This is the reason for the Mali-G52 MC2 presence against the predecessor’s PowerVR GE8320.
The Note 7 has Android 10 based on XOS v6 Dolphin, while the Note 6 has Android 9. There is a 5000mAh battery on the 7 while a 4000mAh battery runs the 6.
The rear fingerprint scanner on the Note 6 has been replaced with a side-mounted scanner of the Note 7. Isn’t that interesting?
