Infinix is trying hard to stay relevant in the smartphone market. Thanks to the high price to performance ratio smartphones, Infinix is now one of the best choices for budget smartphones. Customers liked Infinix Note 7 and Infinix Zero 8 thanks to the decent hardware at an affordable price tag. Now, the company has launched another Infinix HOT 10T. Is it any good? Lets check it out!
Infinix HOT 10T sits in the middle of previously launched HOT 10S and HOT 10S NFC. The Hot 10T shares a lot of specifications from these two phones. However, the company has downgraded a few specifications to bring the price down. Design-wise, the phone looks great. It has a modern look thanks to the bold square camera module. It also comes in different color options. Now lets check out the specifications of Hot 10T.
Infinix Hot 10T specifications
The device features a 6.82-inch IPS LCD panel. It has a resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels (HD+) which is absurd in 2021. However, the company provides fancy features like a 90Hz refresh rate and a 180Hz touch sampling rate. I would prefer an FHD+ 60fps display instead of HD+ 90Hz considering the chipset won’t be able to game at 90fps anyway.
Moving to the camera department, the device features a triple rear camera setup led by a 48MP primary, a 2MP, and an AI lens. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera. Performance is one of the highlights of the device. It comes with an Helio G70 chipset. The G-series chipset of MediaTek is famous for providing high graphics power on a lower budget.
5,000mAh battery provides the juice to the device with support for 10W charging. 18W would have been better, but hey, it’s a budget phone. Also, there is a MicroUSB port on the device instead of USB Type-C. The phone comes out of the box with XOS 7.6 based on Android 11.
Pricing & variants
The device has arrived in Kenya for now. It comes in two variants; 4/64GB and 4/128GB. They are priced at Ksh 15,499 (~$146) and Ksh 17,499 (~$164) respectively. Color options includes Purple, Black, Green, and Blue. Now at a similar price, there are more options available like the Redmi 9 which has better specifications. The lack of FHD+ display and USB Type-C port makes the Hot 10T a poor choice. Let us know your opinions in the comments section below.
