Hong Kong-based Infinix just announced its latest entry-level phone – the Hot 8. It’s a budget device that actually packs some impressive specs considering the initial starting price of INR 6,999 ($97). You get a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD display with a waterdrop notch and 20:9 aspect ratio. The selfie cam comes in at 8MP and the bezels are quite slim.
Going around the back we have a vertically stacked triple camera setup with a 13MP F1.8 main shooter. The other two are a 2 MP depth helper and a dedicated low-light sensor. You also have a fingerprint reader and LED flash.
Under the hood, the Hot 8 packs the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage which can be expanded via the microSD card slot. There’s also a 5,000mAh battery which charges over microUSB. On the software front, we have Infinitix’s XOS 5.0 on top of Android 9 Pie.
The Infinix Hot 8 is available in Midnight Black, Cosmic Purple and Quetzal Cyan colors. The phone will go on sale starting September 12 through Flipkart. It will retail for INR 6,999 ($97) until October 30 while after that the price will go up to INR 7,999 ($111).
