Infinix Mobility, a brand under Transsion Holdings, has added the Infinix Hot 6X to their collection to their Hot series lineup. The smartphone was launched today with much social media attraction. The phone was able to rank amidst the top 20 trends in Nigeria on Twitter.
Social media aspect aside, Infinix Hot 6X carries exclusive features in and out. For one, its camera features made Infinix tout the smartphone with the catchphrase “See everything”. Well, now, it’s time for you to see everything about the smartphone.
Design and Display
Infinix Hot 6X looks stunning with the notch design and gallant-looking curved edges. Wrapped in plastic material, the smartphone’s thickness is finely chopped to 8.25mm. More so, the phone’s rear region is occupied by dual cameras and fingerprint scanner.
Images and other forms of media are displayed on the phone’s 6.2 inches IPS LCD capacitive screen. The resolution of the screen is 720 x 1440 pixels. One thing to note is that this is the first Infinix smartphone with Infinity Display (19:9 aspect ratio).
Software and Hardware
Android Oreo OS runs out of the box as the smartphone’s software. The latest edition of Infinix’s OS, XOS Hummingbird 3.3 is the platform with which the Oreo OS operates.
In the hardware region, Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC dictates the smooth flow of operations on the device. Four ARM Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.4GHz are found on this chip as well as Adreno 506 GPU. Even more, the sound quality on the smartphone is enhanced thanks to Dirac 3D speakers employed.
Camera and Memory
Infinix Mobility paid an adequate amount of attention to the camera section of the Infinix Hot 6X. At the rear area, 13MP primary + 2MP depth shooters are positioned for fantastic photography. These cameras are backed up by LED flash, AI and HDR.
On the other hand, the front region bears an 8MP sensor for decent selfie captures. Facial unlock can be achieved through this selfie camera.
Marketing Communications Manager, Infinix Nigeria, Tayo Odunowo spoke about the phone’s photography saying:
Music and photography are huge aspects of today’s pop culture, and young people want the best of camera, sound speakers, design and so much more at an affordable rate. The Hot 6X is a masterpiece from Infinix, and it confirms that our consumers deserve the best and the best is what we are committed to giving them.
Moving on, the storage unit of the phone is highlighted by a 16GB ROM. Although this seems diminutive, a MicroSD card is available to increase the storage to 128GB.
A non-removable 4,000mAh battery delivers the long lasting duration of this smartphone. Additionally, the smartphone charges at a rapid rate with the help of XCharge Fast Charging technology present.
