HOW TO KNOW IF YOUR INFINIX DEVICE IS FAKE OR ORIGINAL
Infinix has created an online platform that helps you verify if your Infinix smartphone or battery is genuine. The online platform enables users to check if their Infinix phones and batteries are fake or original. Nowadays, product imitation or clone by China are very unavoidable in the market.
Most especially when the product is from a popular brand. Infinix devices are widely used around Africa and known for making cheap, affordable and durable smartphones.
The platform allows you to input the IMEI and VC number of your Infinix smartphone phone. (You can get your device IMEI on your purchase box or dial *#06#. For the VC number you have to check on the battery or phone itself. It is usually below the battery compartment.)
Once you input the two and submit, Infinix will let you know if the device is genuine or not. You can also do the same for your battery (The battery verification works with only the IMEI and no VC number).
How to Verify if your Infinix smartphone and battery are genuine
