Infinix has been targeting the Pakistani market with great looking and decent smartphones for the budget conscious consumers. As usual, Infinix has partnered with Daraz.pk to launch a new mid-range smartphone, Infinix Hot 2, in the country.
Designed in Paris and Shanghai, Infinix Hot 2 is a normal sized smartphone that takes cues from its bigger sibling the Hot Note Pro. Infinix Hot 2 features a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display at the front. Infinix claim that the LCD panel of Infinix Hot 2 is of a very high quality with great screen legibility, colours and sharpness.
The back of Infinix Hot 2 is covered by a rubbery material with a dotted pattern giving the phone a unique look.
Infinix Hot 2 is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor manufactured by Mediatek. The phone comes in two versions, one offering 1GB of RAM while the second one comes with a much beefier 2GB RAM.
The internal storage in Infinix Hot 2 is 16GB which is plenty for a low to mid-ranger. Infinix Hot 2 also supports microSD cards of up to 32GB giving the users choice to expand the memory on their phone.
The camera is a 8MP shooter at the rear and a 2MP front facing camera. The phone is powered by a relatively small 2,200 mAh battery. Hot 2 supportd 2G and 3G networks only.
