Infinix Hot 8 Price in Nigeria
The Infinix Hot 8 Price in Nigeria has not been revealed yet, however the Smartphone is expected to be priced around #33,000 to #37,000 naira in Nigeria.
The Infinix Mobile is planning to launch the Infinix Hot 8 next week and the price of the Hot 8 will be revealed their also, this post will be updated once it is launched.
Design and Display of Infinix Hot 8
According to the Infinix Hot 8 Specifications, this device is made from a glass material, both the front and back of this device is made from glass and it has a dimensions of 165 x 76.3 x 8.7 mm (6.50 x 3.00 x 0.34 in) it is a light weight device which i know every one would like, it weighs just about 179 grams.
This device is beautifully made but i would have loved if it was made from plastic, glass material are always find to be easily shattered but plastic doesn’t, but unless you are a careful handler then it will be nice or if you are too careless, you can get a rubber case for it, the rear cameras is just aligned vertically at the left side of the device.
In terms of display, this device spot a 6.6 inches HD+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 by 1600 pixels, it has 269 PPI density and has 81.5% screen to body ratio.
This device will have a nice viewing angle, it will be bright outdoors and typing on it will be smooth, the only set back is the 720p screen that it has, you will be limited to 720p when watching videos online like on Youtube, you can’t buffer more than 720p video, this is fine also because it will keep your data consumption at minimum.
Being that this device has a massive 6.6 inches, it will be very tall and consuming media content on it will be enjoyable, this only applies to those who love watching videos on their Smartphone and also viewing other stuff.
Hardware and software of Infinix Hot 8
As regard the Infinix Hot 8 Specifications, this device runs on Android 9.0 pie with Infinix customized XOS 5.0 slapped on top of it, it comes in two configurations which includes the one with 2gb RAM and 32gb ROM, other one has 4gb RAM and 64gb RAM.
The one with 2gb RAM is powered by Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm) while the one with 4gb RAM is powered by Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm), both of them has a powerVR GE8320 GPU for graphics or gaming.
Now with this Specifications, this device will run fast at it’s best, gaming will be playable on this device but don’t expect to play high end games on it such as Pub g or asphalt 9, don’t get me wrong, it will play Pub g and Asphalt 9 but the gaming experience would not be as smooth as those high end phones, if you want this phone, just play basics games on it or you can close up all apps running in the background and play high end games.
Camera and battery overview
This device camera will be really awesome, not the best camera out there but for a midrange phone, the camera is mind blowing, looking at the Infinix Hot 8 Specifications, it has an 8mp front camera with f/2.0 aperture accompanied by a led flash and on the rear, it has a triple camera setup which includes a whooping 13mp rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, a 2mp camera for depth sensing and a QVGA low light sensing camera with a Quad led flash.
It has an auto focus feature which automatically detects an object you want to capture and focus on it which blurs out the background, it shoots video in 1080p at 30 frames per second.
On the battery side, this is where the Infinix Hot 8 really kicks things off, it has a large 5000mAh battery which is expected to last for 3days on a minimum usage, however we don’t know if this battery claim is valid but we are going to test that out and give you a full review once it’s out.
Infinix has always been producing phones with 4000mAh battery since 2017 but I’m glad that this time around, they stepped up a notch higher by giving the Infinix Hot 8 a whooping 5000mAh battery, nice development from Infinix.
Network and Sensors
Adding to the Infinix Hot 8 Specifications, this device comes with 3g connectivity and as well as 4G LTE, it will surfs the internet fast and one thing i love is the download speed rating in 3g network, it has 5.76mbps so the download speed using opera mini that comes pre-installed on this device, downloading with operamini will be super doper fast, it can be able to download 1hour 30 minutes video in just 13 minutes which is not bad considering the category this device is resting on.
It has a fingerprint sensor which is located at the rear of the device, the fingerprint sensor will be fast too, just place your finger on the sensor and boom, your device is unlocked.
So that’s pretty much of the Infinix Hot 8 Specifications overview, here is my verdict, if you need a phone which can browse the internet very fast, watch videos on YouTube without buffering, check social media update, good battery capacity and a very decent camera, look no further than the Infinix Hot 8 but if you need a phone which can play heavy games and can do fast multi tasking, i advice you to look else where, though the Infinix Hot 8 will play high end games but with just one background app running, if you have too many background apps running, it will lag while playing games, let me know what you think about this Smartphone in the comments section down below, don’t forget to share to your friends and family.
