After the successful launch of the Infinix Hot 7 this year, the HongKong based company just announced its latest entry-level smartphone appropriately dubbed the Infinix Hot 8. For an entry-level smartphone, the Hot 8 comes with some impressive specifications and a very reasonable initial price.
Design and Display
Design-wise, this smartphone comes with a matte back, a triple sensor rear camera vertically aligned on the top left and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It will be available in three colors Midnight Black, Cosmic Purple, and Quetzal Cyan.
The water-drop notch display is a 6.5-inch LCD panel with HD+ (720p) resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio.
The vertically stacked triple sensor rear camera features a 13 MP main sensor, 2 MP depth sensor, and a low light sensor. The selfie camera is a modest 8 MP single sensor.
Internal and Storage
On the inside, this budget-friendly smartphone is packed with a MediaTek Helio P22 SoC topped with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of built-in storage which can be expanded via a memory card.
Software-wise the smartphone runs on Infinix’s XOS 5.0 flavored Android 9.0 Pie.
Battery and Pricing
The whole package is fueled by a massive 5000 mAh battery which unfortunately charges over the old school MicroUSB 2.0.
Currently, the smartphone is available on Flipkart at the initial price tag of $97. After 30th October the price will be increased to $111.
