Infinix is a brand that is known to offer feature-rich smartphones at affordable rates. Recently, the company has become more active in the Indian subcontinent with new releases. In the latest news, Infinix has announced Hot 9 series of smartphones that bring punch-hole displays in the budget segment. Let’s learn more about the specs, features, expected price in Nepal and availability of Infinix Hot 9 and 9 Pro.
Infinix Hot 9 Series Overview
Design and Display
Both Infinix Hot 9 and Hot 9 Pro feature a 6.6-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. The aspect ratio on these phones is at 20:9. On the front, you will notice that both the phones have punch-hole displays, that are placed at the top left corner of the screen. Thanks to the circular cutout, Infinix is claiming a screen to body ratio of about 90.5%.
The screen is housed inside a plastic body. Its back looks beautiful with the gem cut texture, while the rear panel showcases the rectangular camera module and fingerprint sensor.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, both Infinix Hot 9 and Hot 9 Pro come with MediaTek Helio P22. It is paired with IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The combination isn’t anything to complain about at this price range, but we have seen Realme C3 and Narzo 10A with a more powerful Helio G70 at the same price range. The two phones are available in 4GB + 64GB memory configuration.
Both Infinix Hot 9 and Hot 9 Pro feature a quad-camera setup on the back, but the latter features a better primary sensor. The Hot 9 Pro has a 48MP primary camera, along with a 2MP depth sensor, 2MP micro camera, and a low-light camera. It also has a quad-LED flash arrangement.
Hot 9, on the other hand, has an inferior 13MP primary camera. The rest of the camera setup is the same. It only has three LED flashes. Both the phone feature an 8MP camera on the front for selfies.
Battery and Others
A 5,000mAh battery powers the Infinix Hot 9 series. The two devices feature rear-mounted fingerprint sensors for biometrics. In terms of software, the phones run on the company’s custom XOS UI 6.0 based on Android 10. Two phones come with support for dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0
