Design, Display, Photography
Infinix Hot 20 features a design that is similar to the other members of the Hot 20 Series. It offers the same plastic body and glass protection in the front. You get it in four different colors: Sonic Black, Legend White, Tempo Blue, Fantasy Purple.
A 6.82-inch display is provided in the front, which gives it the biggest screen in the Hot 20 series. The IPS display offers 720 x 1640 pixels resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. The display also supports up to 500 nits of brightness and Eye Care mode that protects your eyesight by reducing Blue Light.
A dot-notch is provided in the front for the 8 megapixels front facing camera. The camera offers a wide-angle lens with an aperture of f/2.0. Dual LED flash is provided for the front facing camera.
On the back, though it looks like three cameras, the Infinix Hot 20 comes with a 50 megapixels dual camera actually. It is a good quality camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), HDR, and quad-LED flash.
Both cameras deliver good photos and can record up to 1080p Full HD videos.
Infinix Hot 20 supports dual speakers with DTS for immersive stereo audio.
Hardware and Software

This smartphone supports Extended RAM for activating additional RAM with virtual RAM. The 6GB model can add an additional 5GB virtual to give a total of 11GB RAM for seamless multitasking.
Add the support for Dar-Link 2.0 and the 90Hz refresh rate as well as the 120Hz touch sampling rate of the display and you get a hint that the device might be a decent gaming phone.
