We are expecting the devices to hit the markets of more than 30 countries in the coming month. Shoppers in Nigeria, Egypt, India, Kenya, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Morocco, and many other countries will soon be able to get their hands on the new release.

When the screen is off, pulling out the X-Pen launches an off-screen writing pad that you can scribble some notes, you can also use the stylus to navigate through the phone and you also get some stylus shortcuts to complement its existence.

Also, the Infinix Note 5 Pro comes a trendy metal back finish as far as body build is concerned (not glossy like the Note 5). This gives it a premium look. The 18:9 screen aspect ratio saw the fingerprint scanner move to the back as there is not enough room for it in the front side. There are three stylish color options; Milan Black, Berlin Gray and Ice Blue colors.

Powering the Note 5 Pro (stylus) lies a 4,500 mAh battery that comes with a quick charge technology to give you more battery juice is lesser charge time. The battery is advertised to keep the device up and running for up 3 days. The phone has 4G network option with dual micro SIM capability.
