Infinix Hot 7 – Full Specifications And Cheapest Price In Nigeria

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.

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 –

infinix hot 7

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

Google Pixel with Snapdragon 730G Launced – Full Specifications, Features and Price

Published

Google Pixel with Snapdragon 730G Launced - Full Specifications, Features and Price 15

After months of wait, possessive leaks and counter-marketing teasers, the self-aclaimed mid-range warrior, the Pixel 4a, has finally become real. The Google Pixel 4a is the tech giant’s latest mid-range smartphone.

Google Pixel with Snapdragon 730G Launced - Full Specifications, Features and Price 16

Also, the phone has been launched at an aggressive mid-range price that’s even more affordable than the Pixel 3a’s which was launched last year.

In the lead up to the launch, the Pixel 4a had been leaked a number of times, with not only its entire spec sheet but also design and features leaked online ahead of the official unveiling.

So, if you saved yourself from the emotion rollercoaster and frolicking that ensured prior to its release, here’s a full lay down on the specifications and features of the Google Pixel 4a.

Google Pixel 4a Specifications and Features

Despite being renowned for its awesome optical capabilities, Google pixel devices also pack impressive hardware tech to go too. In terms of the hardware, the Pixel 4a managed to keep things simple.

For the display, the phone uses a 5.81-inch Full-HD+ punch-hole OLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The display is HDR+ compliant and should be great for watching movies and TV shows on the go. Being an OLED screen, the panel will support Always On Display and Now Playing features, and also bring support for Titan M Security Module.

While, the display ticks the boxes, the hardware chipset used brings us all down to reality that it’s still a mid-range device. At the core of the phone is a strictly mid-range Snapdragon 730G chipset that is paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Just like its predecessors, the previous Pixel phones that have been launched before it, the Pixel 4a will also focus heavily on the cameras. However, it will do so by keeping the hardware to the minimum.

The phone gets a square camera module on the back, but only with a single lens fitted inside it, The module features a 12.2-megapixel dual pixel phase detection rear camera with f/1.7 aperture, OIS, and a 77-degree field of view. This has been sat next to an LED flash.

On the front, the display’s punch-hole houses an 8-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture and an 84-degree field of view.

Camera features are tipped to include 4K 30fps video recording and 1080p 120fps recording. For battery, the phone has been announced to get a 3,140mAh battery pack for keeping the lights on. All this hardware is wrapped inside a body measures 144×69.4×8.2mm and weighs about 143 grams only.

Also, it’s worth mentioning that inasmuch as you are assured of ‘that’ stock Android experience on Google Pixel phones, there’s the major bonus of having the Android 11 beta in full swing too.

*Tasty*

So far so good, now how do we get this beauty down to your location?

Google Pixel 4a Price and Availability in Nigeria

One thing to note is the new Google Pixel 4a is quite awesome and wallet-friendly thanks in part to the chaos caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Pixel 4a has been launched at a much more affordable price point than the Pixel 3a. The device has been priced at $349 and is slated to go on sale later in October.

Moreover, the Pixel 4a has been announced in a single model, with no XL model this year. This model comes with a 5.81-inch display and has been priced at $349. Interestingly, there is only a single variant here with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage that’s currently been announced for retail.

Also, there will be another 5G variant of the Pixel 4a that the company has revealed will start selling later in the year — but reports point to this being only available in the US alone.

Google Pixel 4a Key Specs

  • Display: 5.81-inch
  • Front Camera: 8-megapixel
  • Rear Camera: 12.2-megapixel
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 64GB
  • Battery Capacity: 3080mAh
  • OS: Android 10

“The Ultimate Budget Champion” – Redmi 9 Series Launched in Nigeria: Full Specifications, Features and Price

Published

on

"The Ultimate Budget Champion" - Redmi 9 Series Launched in Nigeria: Full Specifications, Features and Price 19

Xiaomi officially announced its next lineup of Redmi devices to the Nigerian market yesterday which it dubbed “entry-level smartphones but

I tell you what, these devices are nowhere near ordinary!

The Redmi 9, Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C smartphones which is a bit toned down version of the Redmi Note 9 devices and successor to the Redmi 8 announced last year all packs impressive specs whilst doing it job pretty fine.

Also, it is worth recalling this is a company that only made the leap into the Nigerian smartphone market space, but so far has incredibly worn the heart of Nigerians if not really taking occupancy with its premium-budget yet affordable devices.

The Redmi 9, Redmi 9A, and Redmi 9C are sold at different prices, but all of them are between N41, 900 – N66, 900 and offer good value for money.

Marketing Director, Mr. SomoyeHabeeb speaking during the launch event dully acknowledges that the “Xiaomi Redmi 9 comes in as a smartphone intended to pacify enthusiasts who cannot afford the Redmi Note 9 series. It offers a cheaper price tag, which can be seen as a strategy to reach customers with a lower budget.”

So, too much of the post-launch rituals over; here comes the new arrivals then

Given that they carry different prices(which we’ll talk about later) and they are all devices released by Xiaomi, you probably understood that don’t REALLY offer same specifications.

But you don’t really have to worry about which one to buy or worth spending more money.

Just hang on with me here

Redmi 9 Specifications and Features

The Redmi 9 features a 6.53” FHD+ Display (2340 x 1080 pixels) with a waterdrop notch cutout for the selfie camera. The display is topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 protection with the phone measuring 9.1mm thick and weighs at 198 grams.

The Redmi 9 has the impressive MediaTekHelio G80 chipset running under the hood with an octa-core CPU and Mali-G52 GPU and runs on MIUI 12 which is based on Android 10. This is paired with up to 4GB RAM starting option and up to 64GB storage options to choose from. There’s also an option to increase the phone’s storage further by using microSD cards of up to 512GB.

Moving on, the camera department is where the real teaser is. There is a rear quad-camera setup that consists of a primary 13MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 118-degree field-of-view, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, useres will have to make do with an 8MP selfie camera housed within the waterdrop notch cutout.

Furthermore, the Redmi 9 offers a fingerprint sensor on the back for security measures and the likes and also comes with a 5,020mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging out-of-the-box.

Xiaomi has priced the Redmi 9 starting at N66, 900 for the 4GB RAM +64GB RAM variant. The phone comes in three colours– Grey, Green and Purple.

Redmi 9C Specifications and Features

While this would be pretty evenly hard to say, there had to be a difference by the way. Though the Redmi 9C features same 6.53” display, it is only a HD+ Display (2340 x 720 pixels) with a waterdrop notch cutout for the selfie camera.

"The Ultimate Budget Champion" - Redmi 9 Series Launched in Nigeria: Full Specifications, Features and Price 23

The Redmi 9C is powered by MediaTekHelio G35 chipset with an octa-core CPU and PowerVR GE8320 graphics. This is paired with up to 3GB RAM and 64GB storage with an option to increase the storage by up to 512GB with microSD card. It also runs on the latest MIUI 12 which is based on Android 10.

While the Redmi 9 comes with camera setup akin to the Redmi Note 9, Xiaomi has chosen to go with an iPhone-like boxy arrangement for the Redmi 9C. The phone comes with a triple camera array that consists of a primary 13MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. There’s a 5MP selfie camera on the front housed within the waterdrop notch cutout.

Overall, this could have been on point but a 5Megpixel camera for selfies? Your thoughts right now are as good as mine.

For sensors, the Redmi 9C also features a rear fingerprint sensor and is fitted with a 5,000mAh battery which doesn’t support fast charging.

The Redmi 9C is priced starting at N46, 900 for the base variant with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage and N53,900 for the 3GB RAM variant with 64GB storage.

Redmi 9A Specifications and Features

Arguably the last baby of the lineup but the Redmi 9A smartphone still delivers on ‘promise and agreements’.

"The Ultimate Budget Champion" - Redmi 9 Series Launched in Nigeria: Full Specifications, Features and Price 25

The Redmi 9A features the same set of display, battery and selfie camera as the Redmi 9C. It is powered by the MediaTekHelio G25 chipset under the hood with octa-core CPU and PowerVR graphics for fair gaming tasks.

The phone also runs on MIUI 12 and features a single 13MP primary camera. However, the catch is that this toddler here can record in 1080p at up to 60FPS which is a major win too.

"The Ultimate Budget Champion" - Redmi 9 Series Launched in Nigeria: Full Specifications, Features and Price 26

This device is paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage with an option to expand the storage further by up to 512GB via microSD cards. The smartphone retails at N41,900 for the base variant however, the Redmi 9A doesn’t come with a fingerprint sensor.

Final Verdict and which Redmi 9 Series to Buy

Xiaomi has always pride itself in it’s consistency in offering mid-range and flagship-killer devices and the Redmi Series is no exemption.

However, if you were observant enough(which you really should be when it comes to spending money), you will notice the Redmi 9 lineup specifications and features takes a particular trajectory.

This implies that the base Redmi 9 device is the most valuable of the triumvirate while the Redmi 9C is the least.

In other words, if you are in for something closer to the Redmi Note 9, you might want to go for the base Redmi 9 smartphone. Also, if you find the retail price a little bit over the top and ready to make some camera sacrifices, there is the Redmi 9C which also offers value for money.

However, in all fairness, the Redmi 9A is the real entry-level smartphone here with both its specs and lack of features.

The call is yours to make!
