We don’t know if this will make its way into the other African markets any time soon, but Infinix has launched X1 Android TV into the Kenyan’s market.
Infinix X1 Android TV makes it easier for users to access 400,000+ movies and shows, play music and games, cast from any device onto their TV, and add the apps they use most. The TV is also preloaded with Boomplay Music, a popular music app in Africa.
Android TV allows users to access content from a variety of platforms, and for them to connect their TV to a wide range of smart devices within their home in a more user-friendly way.
Infinix claims they have precise insight into African users’ love for music, so the X1 is preloaded with Boomplay Music, one of the most popular music apps in Africa. Boomplay is also owned by Transsion which owns Infinix, TECNO, Syinix, itel, and a couple of other brands.
It sports a frameless design, which substantially increases the screen-to-body ratio. To create an immersive home theatre experience, the TV also comes with the 24W high-quality speakers and supports Dolby Audio and AAC sound effects.
The Infinix X1 Android smart TV comes with built-in WiFi, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play Chromecast, High Dynamic RangeHDR, and Dolby Audio. It comes preloaded with Android 9 Pie out of the box.
The Infinix X1 will retail at KES 31,990 (USD $295) for the 43-inch and KES 19,490 (US $179) for the 32-inch.
We don’t know when and if it will find its way into other African Markets but it is already available for purchase in Kenya.
