In an exclusive sneak peak, Cloudfone has given us access to their upcoming devices. In addition to the already launched Next Infinity Quattro and Next Infinity, there are two more devices that are awaiting the green light for announcement. The Next Infinity Plus and the even more interesting Thrill Boost 3.

The Cloudfone Next Infinity Pro is meant for those who don’t want to burn a lot of cash for a decent mid-ranger, Sporting an 18:9 display. the Next Infinity Plus has a 5.7-inch IPS HD+ display, and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 430 processor. Not the latest, but still a capable SoC. It also has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, and a 3,000mAh battery.
