Infinix Hot 8 Review, Full Specifications and Price

Released in September 2019, the Infinix Hot 8 is the latest addition to the Infinix Hot series and as you might have known, it is also the successor to Infinix Hot 7 smartphones. Seeing that both Hot 7 and 8 smartphones were both released the same year (2019), some people consider the time-frames between them a short one but that doesn’t count much. As long as we’re satisfied with upgrades. Unlike the Hot 8 which has much fewer variants, the Hot 7 has 6 different versions distributed equally under the tags ‘lite’ and ‘pro’. Consider a few features from the Hot 7 pro.

The Infinix Hot 7 pro is a 6.2 inches device which features an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a U-notch design. The resolution is pegged at 720 x 1520 pixels with 271 ppi density.
Other features include Android 9.0 (Pie) as the operating software, Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) as the SoC for 3+32GB and 6+64GB versions, Octa-core 1.8GHz Cortex-A53 as the central processor and PowerVR GE8320 as the graphics processor. The dual 13+2MP selfie cam setup is so damn impressive. It packs a 4000mAh battery which affords it an impressive battery life.
Also, it has a 2GB RAM + 32GB ROM variant with a different SoC, CPU and GPU which isn’t included here. Check our Hot 7 Pro review for full details.

The features above are cool and since the Hot 8 is supposed to be an upgrade to the Hot 7 pro , the features should be even more impressive

In some part, the Infinix Hot 8 has better features than the Hot 7 pro but in other parts, the Hot 7 Pro prevails. The Hot 7 Pro for example has better RAMs for its variants, 3gb and 6gb respectively but the Hot 8 bring 2gb and 4gb instead. However, the Hot 8 has a better battery of 5000mAh and the main camera sensor adds one to make it 3. The 64gb version sports the same chipset as the Hot 7 Pro which is kinda cool. Above all these, the Hot 8 is bigger than the Hot 7 Pro and falls around just the same price. Judging by the Hot 8 features, the Hot 8 Pro should be a force to reckon with.
