When news broke that there might be a new device from infinix mobile, i said to myself that finally, infinix 2018 flagship from the Zero line is here. Then days later, they announced the infinix hot 6X. However, never give up on that yet because for some years now, this smartphone manufacturer has announced upgrade to the Zero line in the month of November and we are just only in the first part of that month.
The hot 6x is the latest device on its line and infinix seems to focus more on this line in 2018 with reasons only known to them. Talking about the launch of Infinix hot s3 in February which was their first device powered by Snapdragon processor, then hot 6 and hot 6 pro came along in June and the hot s3x in August which was their first device with notch display.
The new hot 6x seems not to be bringing anything new to the table but rather the combination and mixture of great specs that makes the infinix phones launched earlier this year. Talking about the combination of notch display from the S3X, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor from the S3 and dual rear camera from the hot 6 and its Pro variant.
However, they seems to have bump the front facing camera a little on the hot 6x from 5MP to 8MP as seen on the hot 6 and hot 6 pro. The hot s3x however has a better 16MP selfie camera.
Infinix Hot 6X Review.
Below are all the information you need to decide if this device is going to be your next smartphone or not.
Design & Display.
The new infinix hot phone is a 6.2-inch IPS LCD smartphone with 1500 x 720 pixels screen resolution and weighs 168 grams. It comes with a notch display as seen on numerous devices launched in 2018.
Inside the notch are the earpiece, front facing camera and ambient light sensor. The side bezels are pretty thin and so is the chin (though i think it can be thinner). On the right side are the power and volume buttons and on the left are the sim + SD card slot. Under are the speaker and USB port while the 3.5mm headphone jack resides on the top.
Flipping to the rear, you quickly notice the dual rear camera with the dual LED flash at the top left corner and the octagonal shaped fingerprint scanner at its usual position with infinix branding just below it. At the mid-bottom are some other trademarks.
Performance, Software & Storage.
Hot 6x from Infinix is powered by a mid range Qualcomm made processor, the Quad Core Snapdragon 425 SoC which powered most other infinix hot phones that has been launched in 2018. On board this SoC is the Adreno 308 GPU which is going to take care of anything relating to graphics.
You have options for 2GB or 3GB RAM which are paired by 16GB and 32GB of internal storage respectively. You have also get an expandable storage slot that can handle up to (but not recommended as it may reduce performance) 128GB of SD card.
It runs on infinix XOS 3.3 based on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. There is a probability it will get Android Pie in the next couple of months.
Camera, Battery & Connectivity.
The rear facing camera is a dual 13MP + 2MP sensor that Infinix said are AI powered and can be used to capture great moment by taking crisp images. The front facing camera is 8MP also AI powered with Face Unlock capabilities.
It is packed with 4000 mAh battery capacity that can last you more than a day of fair usage thanks to the well optimized infinix XOS custom ROM.
Connectivity wise, it supports dual Nano SIM card, 4G LTE network, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
