As one of the giant players in the African smartphone scene, Infinix Mobility keeps refreshing its various lineups frequently. One of the latest in their pack of awesomeness is the Infinix Hot 7 (a.k.a. Infinix X624). Being the update to last year’s Infinix Hot 6 family, the phone is targeted at the budget smartphone audience. Cool features locked inside the smartphone are the notch design, large battery and display.

Design and Display
Ever since the release of Infinix Hot 6X and Infinix Hot S3X, Infinix has developed a particular likeness in the notch design. Hot 7 shows how much the company still admires the groove. Taking that into consideration, there are reduced bezels on the plastic-covered smartphone.
A fingerprint reader is positioned at the rear for easy reach of your index finger. A camera sensor and dual-LED flash are also located at the backside, millimetres away from the fingerprint scanner.
A decent display experience is what the smartphone offers its user. I’m talking about a sizeable 6.26-inch screen working alongside 720 x 1500 pixels resolution. With the reduced bezels in place, there’s more than enough screen arena for display ease.
Battery and Camera
Thanks to 4,000mAh battery, the smartphone gives enough juice to run you through two days’ activities and beyond. Quite unfortunately, no Fast Charging technology enters into the equation.
Smart photography is the watchword on this smartphone; that’s because AI assists its front and back cameras. For selfie captures, an 8MP lens executes stellar images. Fortunately, a LED flash brightens the scenery in low light. Upon flipping the phone, you’ll be greeted with a 13MP camera and dual-LED flash.
Models of the Infinix Hot 7 sold in India offer four cameras, two each on the front and back. A pair of 13MP + 2MP dual cameras are located on the front and back.
Hardware and Software
Here’s one aspect that made the phone’s price hit a low turn. Infinix Mobility employed an entry-level chipset in the name of MediaTek MT6580P to power the smartphone. Quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, found on the chipset, functions in relaying its roles.
In India, you will be getting a more powerful MediaTek Helio P25 octa-core processor.
Variability exists in both segments of the phone’s memory. Depending on your taste, you can choose 1GB or 2GB RAM to serve multitasking needs. While the 1GB RAM teams up with 16GB expandable storage, the 2GB RAM is accompanied by 32GB expandable ROM. Android 8.1 Oreo OS is pre-loaded with apps on the device.
In India you get only a 64GB model with 4GB RAM and Android 9 Pie.
Infinix Hot 7 Price and Availability
You can buy the smartphone at leading online stores in your country. Infinix Hot 7 price in Nigeria ranges from ₦42,000 to ₦46,000 depending on the location and deal.
In Kenya, the Infinix Hot 7 starts at 10,499 KSh. Infinix Hot 7 price in India starts at Rs. 7,999.
