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.
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 –
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.
