It looks like CloudFone’s Next Infinity series is about to become more interesting. Whether you’d see it as a positive kind of interesting or not depends on how you feel about the notch.

You see, the Philippine company just teased an Apple iPhone X lookalike on its Facebook page with the caption, “The next CloudFone?”

There’s little doubt then that the device in the video is going to be part of CloudFone’s lineup of nearly borderless smartphones. The series already includes the following:

  • CloudFone Next Infinity Quattro – Price: P12,999 or around $250
  • CloudFone Next Infinity Pro – Price: P9,999 or $192
  • CloudFone Next Infinity Plus – Price: P8,999 or $173
  • CloudFone Next Infinity – Price: P6,999 or $135

Where will the company’s iPhone clone figure in the Next Infinity line? Will it be the most premium smartphone? That will be a tough sell — especially if the price will be higher than the Quattro’s — considering that a five-figure locally branded device usually doesn’t do well on the market. It will have a lot of competition from international brands.

If it’s in the bargain-basement category, it will join iPhone X-like Android devices that have started to swarm online stores like Lazada. The cheapest example we can find is the Vinovo K1, which sells for just P2,999 or roughly $58.

But we doubt it. We think the teased smartphone’s price tag is going to hover around the P10,000 ($192) mark. After all, the Next Infinity devices have relatively good specs.

Google’s Android P — code-named Pistachio Ice Cream — will reportedly embrace the iPhone’s notch in order to woo iOS users. So this will only be the start of Android handsets adopting the controversial look.
