Design, Display, and Cameras
The Infinix Hot 20 5G looks similar to the Hot 20, though it is a bit more compact and come in different color options. You can buy this 5G model in Racing Black, Space Blue, and Blaster Green.
Aside, the chip inside, the display specs, and of course 5G, this 5G phone is largely the same with the 4G variant.
The camera on the front and back are the same. In the front, you get an 8 megapixels selfie camera sitting on the dot-notch. On the back a 50 megapixels dual camera is provided. Both cameras can record up to 1080p full HD videos.
Infinix Hot 20 5G offer the best quality display in the Hot 20 Series. Perhaps only the Hot 20S comes close. The IPS display measures 6.58-inches and offers 1080 x 2408 pixels resolution with 500 nits. You also get blue light reduction technology on the display for your eye care.
The display’s support for 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate is a big plus and gives it potential as a gaming phone. It also means it will be good for watching movies and browsing the web.
Hardware and Software
Infinix Hot 20 5G runs Android 12 with XOS 10.6 on a MediaTek MT6833P Dimensity 810 (6 nm) octa-core processor. This is the same chipset we saw in the Infinix Note 12 Pro 5G, the Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G, and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11S 5G.
The chipset offers a dual-core Cortex-A76 and hexa-core Cortex-A55 processors clocked at 2.4GHz and 2.0GHz respectively.
While the smartphone may have potential in gaming, the provision of just a 4GB RAM models leaves a lot to be desired, especially when you consider that the Hot 20 4G includes a 6GB and 8GB in addition to the base 4GB while the Hot 20S only comes with 8GB RAM.
So, we hope Infinix will be adding models with 6GB and 8GB RAM in future for customers looking for a gaming phone with 5G connectivity. However, with Extended RAM you add 3GB of virtual which can boost performance. For now, the Infinix phone is available in with 64GB or 128GB built-in storage.
A 5000 mAh battery is built-in to offer a decent battery life. The smartphone also supports fast charging with an 18W charging capacity. It can also double as a power bank to recharge your other mobile devices like smartwatch or wireless earbud.
The android phone features USB Type-C port with OTG support, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi. It supports 4G LTE. 5G connectivity is not available on this phone.
