The much-anticipated first-ever pop-up selfie camera phone from Infinix is here. Infinix S5 Pro was launched on the 6th of March, 2020. In December 2019, I wrote a post about Infinix’s mobility plans to launch a pop-up selfie camera phone. In the post, I explained that Mr. Benjamin Jiang in a radio interview inferred that Infinix Mobility will introduce a smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera.

Infinix however, withheld the specific model that will have the pop-up selfie camera. The announcement in India on the 6th of March 2020 cut short all the speculations surrounding the S5 Pro.
