Infinix has added a new smartphone to its Hot lineup of budget smartphones. The new Hot 12 was unveiled alongside the Note 12 and Smart 6 HD. In this article, we will be discussing the complete specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Infinix Hot 12 in Nepal.
Infinix Hot 12 Overview:
Design and Display
With the new Hot 12, Infinix has gone with a more modern design on the front. The phone now features a center-aligned punch-hole cutout compared to the traditional waterdrop notch on its predecessor. Likewise, the screen is also bigger at 6.82-inch. Furthermore, it now has support for 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate.
That being said, Infinix has compromised on the resolution of the screen. While last year’s Hot 11 came with an FHD+ screen, it has been reduced to HD+ in its successor.
At the back, Infinix Hot 12 has a new rectangular camera bump. Users can choose between four different color options: Origin Blue, Legend White, Lucky Green, and Racing Black. The phone will also feel different in hand as it switches to a flat-edge design. It measures 8.32mm in thickness and weighs around 195 grams.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood. Infinix has gone with the Helio G85 chipset. Compared to the Helio G70 on the Hot 11, G85 brings an overclocked Mali G52 GPU. The clock frequency of the Cortex-A55 is bumped to 1.8GHz from 1.7GHz. Other specs and features are identical across the two SoCs.
Infinix is offering the Hot 12 in a single memory configuration of 6+128GB. Users will also be able to expand the former up to 11GB with virtual RAM technology. Similarly, the storage is also expandable with an external microSD card.

The cameras on the Infinix Hot 12 are not much different than its predecessor. Infinix has added a 2MP auxiliary sensor, but it is not clear what its purpose is. Other than that, you get the same old 13MP primary and an AI lens.
With the rear camera setup, users can record 1080p videos at 30 fps and slow-mo at 240fps. There is also a dedicated night mode and autofocus. Over on the front, Infinix has included an 8MP selfie camera with AI features.
Rest of the specs
Infinix Hot 12 gets its juice from a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. The phone has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometrics. It even boots on Android 12-based XOS 10.6 on top. You also get a dual speaker setup with DTS audio.
