Given that — it is a rounded rectangle phone with a flat design and a squircle camera island with three camera bumps on the back. The thing measures 8.25 mm in thickness and weighs 196 grams. Meanwhile, it is available in four colour options, namely Horizon Gold, Starlit Black, Palm Blue, and Starfall Green.

In terms of display, we are getting a 6.78” IPS LTPS LCD panel with a centrally aligned hole-punch camera cutout. It is an FHD+ display with a 1,080 x 2,460 pixels resolution and is capable of a 90Hz refresh rate. Additionally, it also offers a touch sampling rate of up to 270Hz, peak brightness of 500 nits, and a typical colour gamut of 85% NTSC.


Moving on to performance, the Infinix Hot 40 ships with a MediaTek Helio G88 — which is a budget midrange chipset. It is an octa-core processor built on a 12nm fabrication process with a peak clock speed of up to 2,000 MHz.

Camera and the rest

The Infinix Hot 40 comes with a three-camera setup on the back. This setup comprises of 50MP primary shooter together with a 2MP Macro lens, and an “AI Cam”. The AI Cam is most probably a depth sensor helping out with bokeh effects. Meanwhile, on the front, we have a 32MP camera with fixed focus.
