Infinix INBook X2 offers a lighter body and two built-in webcam lights
Infinix has officially launched the INBook X2 which is the successor to the INBook X1 which the company launched in select markets around the world including Malaysia last year. While the overall design of the new model is generally identical to its predecessor, there are a number of factors that separate them.
Just like the X1, the X2’s chassis is made of aluminum. In fact, it looks like Infinix has kept the X1 lid design for X2 although the new model is much lighter at 1.24kg compared to its predecessor which weighs around 1.48kg.
The X2 is also slightly thinner at 14.8mm compared to the X1’s 16.3mm chassis. Infinix didn’t provide any details on how the company is able to make the new model thinner and lighter, but we suspect having a lower capacity 50Wh battery (the X1 has a 55Wh battery) could be the key.
Talking about the battery, Infinix claims that the X2 can last up to 11 hours for web browsing while it also comes with a 45W USB-C charger. As for the other new element that separated the X2 of its predecessor, it would be the two integrated LEDs that accompany the HD webcam of the laptop.
Aside from what we mentioned above, other hardware in X2 is similar to X1, including processor options that include Intel Core i3-1005G1, Core i5-1035G1, and Core i7-1065G7. Depending on the configuration you choose, it comes with 256GB or 512GB of flash storage and up to 16GB of RAM.
Likewise, the X2 still comes with a 14-inch Full HD IPS display that has a peak brightness of 300 nits and 100% sRGB coverage. Pre-installed with Windows 11 as standard, the laptop also has a USB-C port which is used for charging and DisplayPort Alt mode as well as data transfer.
Other I/O ports that have been outfitted in X2 include another USB-C port for data transfer only, two USB-A 3.0 ports, an HDMI 1.4 port, an SD card reader, and a headphone aux jack. sides of DTS-enhanced stereo speakers and two microphones. Infinix smartphone users can easily exchange files with X2 or enable the hotspot feature on the phone using the company’s AirLink collaboration app.
Infinix has yet to announce a release date or local price for the X2 series in Malaysia, but said the laptop will be heading to Indonesia, Thailand and Egypt from January 22. The company also noted that the X2 has a general starting price of $399 (~RM1,672) for the base i3 model, while the i5 and i7 options can be had for $549 (~RM2,301) and $649.
