Infinix GT 20 Pro: Proleague Gaming Phone for under Php16k

With the formal announcement of the Infinix GT 20 Pro as the official tournament phone of the MPL and its eventual release in the Philippines this June 13, 2024, we look at what makes this smartphone an affordable yet very capable gaming phone in the market today.

Along with the popularity of the GT 10 Pro from last year, the Infinix GT 20 Pro followed the same principle and design aesthetic and then upgraded the core hardware of the phone.

Here are the three main focuses that made the Infinix GT 20 Pro the most affordable gaming smartphone so far.

Hardware and Performance

In order for the GT 20 Pro to be a truly capable gaming device, it has to be powered by a very capable chipset. Infinix chose the 64-bit octa-core Dimensity 8200-Ultra from Mediatek because of a number of reasons.

This chipset is comprised of a single primary ARM Cortex A78 @ 3.1GHz, a secondary triple-core performance ARM Cortex A78 cluster running at 3.0GHz, and a power-efficient quad-core ARM Cortex A55 cluster running at 2.0GHz. This is complemented by an Arm Mali-G610 6-core GPU.

  • The 4nm TSMC process technology used in the Dimensity 8200 is very efficient in battery optimization and gaming performance.
  • It features Mediatek’s HyperEngine 6.0 with support for Vulkan SDK. This enables raytracing for games and also brings FPS improvements and smart resource optimization.
  • It comes with a Mediatek APU 580 AI processor that can efficiently work as a coprocessor for imaging, display and gaming tasks.
  • It has dual 5G modem for better cellular reception with support for WiFI 6E for a lag-free, jitter-free gaming experience when connected to the internet.

Our complete benchmark tests of the Infinix GT 20 Pro showed outstanding results that the numbers could have been mistaken as flagship-level a year or two ago.

With an included 12GB of RAM, Infinix added an additional 12GB of MemFusion allocation. This means more memory space to put apps and games in the background and allows it to fire them up quickly at any time.

The 6.78″ display has a 94.3% screen-to-body ratio that is almost bezel-less. On top of that, the 144Hz refresh rate of the AMOLED display allows for smoother gameplay and better viewing experience. This is among the highest in the market and normally only found in expensive and high-end gaming smartphones like the ASUS ROG Phone.

Infinix also incorporated a Pixelworks X5 display processor, to boost visual or display performance for highly demanding tasks such as gaming. Many other flagship devices have used the same visual processor to improve performance, such as the OPPO Find X5, the HONOR Magic5, and the iQOO Z9 Turbo.

The stable frame-rate engine gives an all-around quality to the gaming experience by optimizing visuals, render efficiency, cooling, network acceleration with low power consumption.

Supported games include: MLBB @ 120FPS, PUBG @ 90FPS, ROV @ 60FPS, Freefires @ 90FPS, Call of Duty @ 90FPS, Genshin @ 120FPS (interpolated), and Honkai: Star Rail @ 120FPS (interpolated).

This is complemented by dual speakers, tuned by JBL, so you get great sound whether playing music, watching a movie or doing a round of Rank games in Mobile Legends.

Software Game Optimization

Running on the Infinix GT 20 Pro is the XOS for GT V14 on top of Android 14. Infinix guarantees that the GT 20 Pro will get Android updates up to Android 16, including all security updates in between.

Where Infinix placed a lot of attention is on software game optimization.

The Infinix GT 20 Pro also offers a unique “ESports Mode” to create a zero-disruption gaming experience. You can do this whale playing games, like Mobile Legends, and simply enable this via XArena.

Infinix’ focus on a Clean & Pure OS, along with ESports Mode allows for an optimized gaming experience devoid of any disturbance, bloatware and unnecessary processing in the background.

Immersive Audio-Visual Game Experience

One of the reasons why the Infinix GT 20 Pro stood out (including the time when the GT 10 Pro was first announced) among many other smartphones in its price category is because of its unique design.

Cyber Mecha Design with Mecha Loop LED Interface makes for a visual treat – whether you’re simply charging the phone, getting a call or playing music. Turn it up some more with GT Game Boot (lights are enabled when XArena is booted or a game is opened), or set it to Party Mode so you get them blinkies lighting up all the time.

Infinix surely managed to build a gaming phone at an affordable price point (under Php16,000) without sacrificing great hardware and performance.

Infinix GT 20 Pro is also the official tournament of the MPL Philippines (MLBB Professional League), MAL Malaysia (MLBB Academy League), MDL Indonesia (MLBB Development League), MEP Myanmar (MLBB Myanmar Esports Party), and PMSL (PUBG Southeast ASIA).
