Design and Display

Infinix Hot 12 Play comes in an all plastic body available in Racing Black, Champaign Gold, Horizon Blue, or Daylight Green. You still get two cameras on the back with the fingerprint sensor. The front camera is placed on an infinity-O cutout.

This Infinix Hot phone seems to offer exactly the same display as the standard edition. The 6.82-inch IPS display offers a resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels. The display also features 90 Hz refresh rate and 180 Hz touch sampling rate as the standard edition.

This is great since you are getting the same display at a more affordable price. The high refresh rate means better experience while watching movies or gaming while the high touch sampling rate is a plus for gamers.

The Cameras

While the Infinix Hot 12 Play appears to offer the same display as the standard edition, it falls short in camera. While the standard edition sports three rear cameras, the Play edition offers two.

Hardware and Software

Infinix Hot 12 Play runs Android 12 on an octa-core processor. For now it is not clear the identity of the processor. However, we can confirm that it is not same processor in the Hot 12. Given the price differential between the two devices it is most likely a less powerful processor.

What we know for now is that it is an octa-core processor clocked at up to 2.3GHz. The smartphone offers 4GB RAM with option of 64GB or 128GB built-in storage.

You also get an extended RAM of up to 3GB, which means you get an effective memory of 7GB for a smoother experience. Battery capacity is retained at 6000 mAh just like the Hot 11 Play.
