Infinix’s budget-minded INBook X2 comes with Windows 11 pre-installed and dual fill lights


Infinix is a budget-minded smartphone brand that has entered the affordable Windows laptop segment with a device that sports innovative dual fill lights, 10th-generation Intel processors, and an all-metal chassis.

The INBook X2 runs Windows 11 out of the box with a 14-inch IPS display that has FHD resolution and 300 nits, a choice of 10th-generation Intel chipsets, and weighs in at just 1.24kg. The laptop comes in 4/256GB and 8/512GB configurations, with the RAM being soldered onto the motherboard, unfortunately, which means it’s not possible to upgrade the memory on the INBook X2. You can, however, upgrade the M.2 SSD module.

Keeping the lights on is a 50Wh battery that supports 45W PD 3.0 fast-charging (USB Type-C) which can top-up the battery from 0-60% in an hour. The keyboard is backlit, and you’ll find an LED on either side of the webcam to help with backlighting during video calls. As you might expect, the INBook X2 laptop can identify nearby Infinix smartphones, allowing users to transfer files and images between the two devices.

The Infinix INBook X2 laptop goes on sale from January 22nd in grey, green, blue, and red colorways with pricing starting from $349 for the base i3 model and $649 for the i7 variant.
