The major highlight of this Play smartphone is its 6,000 mAh battery capacity. It is the first Infinix smartphone to feature that battery size. There are no words yet if the phone will make it to Africa but the phone’s specs have already been listed on the company’s website.
The smartphone is built around a huge 6.82-inch display panel with 720 x 1640 pixels resolution. This is also the display specs featured on the Infinix Note 7.
Powering the Hot 9 Play is the MediaTek Helio A25 SoC, which we saw on the Infinix Hot 9. The chipset comes with an Octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz and a PowerVR GE8320 graphics processing unit. The memory configuration of this device is 2GB RAM with 32GB storage. The storage is expandable up to 256GB through the microSD slot. The Hot 9 Play runs on the Go edition of Google’s Android 10 operating system.
At the back of the Infinix phone is a rectangular shaped camera module which features a 13MP main sensor and a QVGA sensor. Upfront, we have an 8MP selfie camera living inside a waterdrop notch in the display.
The Infinix Hot 9 Play features a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, face ID and Nano dual-SIM slot. The gigantic battery capacity we mentioned earlier will be charged using a 10W charger, which in my opinion is pretty disappointing considering how long it will take to reach full charge.
The smartphone is expected to launch soon in the coming months, probably when the coronavirus pandemic settles down. Anyways, we will keep you updated with the launching information of the Infinix Hot 9 Play. For the pricing, you can expect it to be cheaper than the standard Infinix Hot 9. Here we are looking at a price between N35,000-N40,000 in Nigeria.
