Infinix Hot 7 – Full Specifications And Cheapest Price In Nigeria

Published

Infinix Hot 7

In this post, I’ll be taking a look at the recently released Infinix Hot 7 specs and price in Nigeria and other parts of the world.

If you can remember clearly, Infinix released the Infinix Hot 6x sometime last year and the phone came with a notch just like you would see on the Apple iPhone X. Although I expected Infinix to release the Infinix Zero 6 first it seems they want to start off with increasing the number of phones in the Hot series.

Infinix Hot 7

Like all Infinix phones, the Infinix Hot 7 specs isn’t going to fall back on giving you an awesome experience while using the device so without further ado let’s get down to what this device brings to the table

Infinix Hot 7 Specs Summary

  • 6.2-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • 1GB and 2GB of RAM Variants
  • Quad-core MediaTek MT6580P processor clocked at 1.3GHz
  • 16GB of onboard storage
  • 13MP rear camera and 8MP selfie camera
  • 4,000mAh non-removable li-polymer battery

Infinix Hot 7 Design And Display

It’s 2019 and for some reason, the Infinix Hot 7 decides to give us a rectangular notch even when other brands are moving to the teardrop notch like the one on the Samsung Galaxy M20 but I would ignore that because this device was probably built last year and shipping would start this year even though I’m not a big fan of the Apple-like notch.

I think you get the picture already so let’s go over to the other design details. Apart from the notch that houses the 8mp selfie camera and LED flash, you get a 6.2-inch IPS LCD Display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a 720 × 1440 pixel resolution.

The overall build is basically plastic this time and the rear camera placement is supported by an LED flash. I don’t know if it’s just me but doesn’t that camera design look a bit awful.

The design looks like an iPhone X camera parody nevertheless it’s still a good camera.  The power button and volume rocker are placed at the side of the device.

The device will be available in multiple colors – Black, Purple, and Gold

Infinix Hot 7 Camera Specifications

Coming to the camera department the Infinix Hot 7 doesn’t really fall short of expectations. The main camera is an impressive single 13MP primary sensor supported by a dual LED flash for taking pictures at night or in low light conditions. There’s also support for Beauty Mode, HDR, and Panorama.

Selfie lovers get an 8MP camera to handle all their selfie cravings.  I’m still wondering why they decided to go back to a single camera setup when they used a dual camera set up on the Infinix Hot 6.

So basically the series went from this –

hot 6

to this –

I really don’t see the essence of the space between the camera and LED flash. I don’t know if this was meant to be a dual camera phone or it was a design flaw, either way, it does look awful.

Inifinix Hot 7 Software/Hardware

Infinix had previously used a Snapdragon processor on the Hot 6 And Hot S3 and we all probably expected them to do better on the Hot 7 but they went back to using a MediaTek processor and I’m a bit disappointed but the processor still manages to keep up with normal tasks on the 2GB variant.

Under the hood, you get a MediaTek MT6580P processor (quad-core) clocked at 1.3GHz. Supporting the processor in the graphics and performance department is an ARM Mali GPU.

The Infinix Hot 7 comes in 2 variants –

  • A 1GB variant running on Android Oreo 8.1 Go Edition with XOS 4.O Honeybee UI
  • 2GB  variant running on Android Oreo 8.1 with XOS 4.O Honeybee UI

The two variants will come with the same amount of storage -a 16GB internal storage capacity (expandable via micro SD to 128GB)

Infinix Hot 7 Network And Connectivity

The Infinix Hot 7 comes with support for 4G LTE and will work with most networks in Nigeria. You still get the normal connectivity options on the device – WIFI, GPS and Bluetooth 4.2 support. There’s also the USB Charging port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Infinix Hot 7 Battery Life And Capacity

The Infinix Hot 7 ships with an impressive 4000mAh battery and comes with fast charge.

It is still months before Apple unveil their next iPhone, but that has not done enough to avert the ton of leaks online.

The release for the iPhone 11 is set for September this year. Apart from the aesthetics and designs, not much is known about its specifications.

Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.

Here are the leaked photos. What do you think?

Huawei Ban In The US – The Domino Effect And What Is Really Going On

Huawei Ban In The US - The Domino Effect And What Is Really Going On 20

I’ve been following up the Huawei ban by the Donald Trump and administration and to be frank with you, I really hope this ban is reversed because the effect is something I would call a “Domino Effect”. Can you just picture a pack of dominoes falling ?

Huawei ban

I believe you get the picture now, that’s what Donald Trump just set off and I really hope this doesn’t escalate. The US got into a trade war with China and The Huawei ban was a result of the crossfire. This move is affecting a lot of companies not just Huawei and it would slow down a lot of improvements in the tech sector globally.

 Huawei Ban In The US - The Domino Effect And What Is Really Going On 21

Huawei is the second largest smartphone company in the world coming in right below Samsung and just above Apple. They even made an excess profit of $100b some time ago and this money comes in from their various buinesses. Huawei happens to be the biggest Chinese brand in this position globally and it’s really disappointing that this is coming just right after the Samsung Fold issue and people were looking towards the Huawei Mate X as the next foldable device to look forward to , even Android Q now natively supports foldable phones but now it’s seeming like we all will have to wait for another foldable phone to get us excited again.

What Huawei Has To Do With The Trade War

Huawei doesn’t make just smartphones, they make a lot of things from laptops to servers to telecom materials and now they have developed 5G.

Huawei Ban In The US - The Domino Effect And What Is Really Going On 22

Yes you read that first line well, Huawei has developed 5G and is working on improving data download speeds and also fixing the problems that come with such speeds . 5G is not just advanced 4G LTE as many people feel, 5G is actually a whole lot faster. You can download a 2 hour movie on 5G within 3.6 seconds.

Yes.. it’s that fast and with the growing number of driver-less cars , smart homes and inter connected devices, 5G would actually make life a whole lot easier. Doctors can even perform surgeries in a location from an entirely different part of the world. The benefits are just too numerous.

The US was actually the first to develop 4G and it added about $100b to their GDP and created over a million jobs. If they had pioneered 5G first, they would have added $500b to their GDP and created almost 10 times the amount of jobs they created. I get the fact that Trump is a businessman but there are better ways to do settle this rather than accusing Huawei of being a pawn of the Chinese Government.

 Currently, Donald Trump is literally like a frustrated driver in Lagos Traffic getting annoyed that someone overtook him in traffic after he did the same a few moments ago .The major issue Trump is using to cover up here is that he fears that the Chinese Government would use the 5G network to spy on other countries and personally I feel this is just a bit overblown.

The Effects OF 5G and Why The West Is Scared

Now most of our communication systems already have some sort of encryption in place so I really feel it’s not something that we should be worried about . The only major concern here is the power it comes with and the security concerns have gotten into the UK. The UK already set up a panel to investigate Huawei and make sure there isn’t any security  breach or backdoors in the system.

Like it or not, the future of warfare would be totally cyberwarfare, if someone can shut down the communication systems of a country with the touch of a button, the resultant effects would be definitely catastrophic.

I believe you now understand why western governments are scared. I also understand this but I still feel the decision to ban Huawei was rather too hasty even though one Huawei executive was arrested sometime ago for a case related to espionage but I still feel it isn’t enough to pin Huawei completely and start a Huawei ban

Huawei CEO Responds To The Huawei Ban

I followed up an interview where the Huawei CEO was asked to give his views on the Huawei ban is facing at the moment and here’s what he had to say –

Huawei Ban In The US - The Domino Effect And What Is Really Going On 25

“I’m very grateful to the US companies, they’ve grown with us for the past 30 years and made a lot of selfless contributions, they taught us how to walk. Most of my consulting enterprises are in the US for example IBM and many others, Secondly we have received great support from these companies and it reflects
the conscience of the US Firms in this crisis”

“2 or 3 days ago I received a call saying that the US companies are working to solve the crisis by reaching out
to the US Government regarding the ban on Huawei. There a re 4 types of regulations. We are not seasonal control, we received entity control this means whatever US companies are selling to Chinese Companies need to get permission. ”

“Even though the entity control is there the inside of the company would not be affected.
The US is a country with an adequate legal system so US Companies have to abide by the law and so does the entity list. So this affects both US companies as well.”

“We are not quite prepared for our low-end products because we think they will die out soon so those might be affected but our high end products won’t be affected at least 5G won’t be affected. Other companies won’t be able to catch up with us in the next 2-3 years”

“If Google cuts off the support to Huawei it would affect Huawei significantly even though Google is still a good company and we’re working on it to find a solution as soon as possible.”

How The Huawei Ban Would Affect Huawei

Now this ban would actually affect Huawei in two major ways and unfortunately these are the major parts of their company as a tech company – The software part and the hardware part.

The Huawei Ban Software Problem

Google has already revoked their Android License so Huawei can’t use any of their products on future devices. No Gmail, Youtube, Playstore and others. Now these apps are already part of a core Android users mobile experience and you can hardly find a good replacement for that apart from users within China who don’t depend on it.

So basically that on it’s own poses a major challenge for the mobile division of Huawei. Although Huawei has two options in this part to use AOSP (Android Open Source Project) without Google Services or simply create their own OS.

Huawei has already been rumored to be working on their own OS for smartphones , HongMeng OS and according to one of their executives the OS was supposed to be launched this year. If you can recall one of the Huawei GT smartwatches didn’t run on Android Wear but was still a great smartwatch.

Was that actually HongMeng OS?

Well I can’t say for sure but I have a feeling it might be.

In the PC division, there’s the Windows issue, Huawei makes Matebooks which all run on windows. Windows is a Microsoft Product (A US company). So Huawei would still have to chose an OS for their new laptops as well.

The Huawei Ban Hardware Problem

Although Huawei probably has the ability to make a few of the hardware they buy from other companies, if not all but it would still affect them badly. Corning, Intel, Nvidia, Synaptics and Snapdragon are all US Companies and they can’t do business with Huawei immediately after the 90 day period when the ban goes into the effect .

These companies all contribute to Huawei’s products in one way or the other. Huawei has confirmed that they have 3 Months worth of supply stored in their company from each company they buy from, which means Huawei actually prepared ahead of time.

I was confident Huawei would be able to make their own chipsets for their smartphones since they already made it -the Kirin Chipset. Now ARM, a UK based company that makes the components for most of the smartphone processors have also pulled out of supporting Huawei because their production plants are based in Houston Texas. So this still poses a major threat to the development of Kirin Processors.

What lies Ahead for Huawei – HongMeng OS  Or AOSP ?

Huawei Ban In The US - The Domino Effect And What Is Really Going On 30

Huawei as basically two options, to use AOSP without Google apps or use a brand new OS – HongMeng OS that is said to make Android apps 60% faster . Hauwei is a big company and has the capability of making the OS a major competitor in the tech market and with so many restrictions  at the moment the future seems to point towards HongMeng Os and even though I want the restrictions to be removed , I can’t wait to see the new OS.
