Infinix has launched a new budget-friendly smartphone dubbed the Infinix Hot 10i in the Philippines with sufficiently good specifications. Despite being a budget offering, the Hot 10i sports an awe-inspiring design that gives it a premium look. Aside from that, it has a waterdrop notch to house the front shooter. There’s a dual rear camera setup housed in a square module. The fingerprint sensor is available on the back so that it can be reached effortlessly.
It is worth mentioning here that the Hong Kong-based smartphone company is reportedly gearing up to launch the Hot 11S in India in the next few days. The phone will be launched under the company’s popular Hot-series smartphones. The Hot 10S successor could arrive in the country in mid-September with almost the same specs as the Redmi 10 Prime. With the Infinix Hot 10i hitting the store shelves in the Philippines, it is safe to assume that the company plans to launch more devices in different regions before the year ends.
