Life is full of thrills and spills. Everyday we face physically demanding challenges which require that the precious pieces of mobile technology we hold dear are, able to take a knock if and when it should occur. Thankfully Hisense have developed a mobile telephone known as the Infinity (C200) KO.
Built to handle the tough knocks life has the throw at it, the Infinity KO is built of ultra tough Corning Gorilla Glass 4, which sandwiches its components within a its tough aluminium sides and rubber bump protectors on the corners.
“Under the hood,” the Infinity KO packs quite a solid punch as well. With specifications which include:
– 5.0 inch HD Touchscreen Display
– Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box
– Dual Sim Slots (supporting 4G LTE)
– 32 GB ROM memory & 3GB RAM
– 3200 mAH non-user removable battery
– Octacore Processor
– 13 MP Rear Camera with LED Flash ; 5 MP Forward Facing Selfie Camera
What’s in the box? In the box Hisense provide:
– Infinity (C200) KO device
– Wall Charge Block
– Micro USB Sync/Charge Cable
– Hisense Headphones
– Screen Protector with applicator
– Warranty manuals and cards
Running Hisense’s very own software overlay, the Infinity KO has a very slick and clean user interface. A simple slide to right, reveals the device app drawer. With its 5 inch HD display, everything is very clearly displayed and the colours are vivid as well.
The IP rating of the device protects against knocks ; spills ; dust and even keeps the device completely watertight for up to 30 minutes submerged within up to 1 meter of water. It is essential however, that the dust/water covers remain sealed as specified to ensure the device has the ability to remain water and dust tight.
When you couple these high-end specifications with the Infinity KO’s real world strength, class good looks and slim profile, you get a very desirable package. The Hisense Infinity KO is available through several major networks and retailers such as Makro and is well worth discovering.
