Design and Display

Infinix Hot 40 looks similar to its predecessor, the Infinix Hot 30. The dimension and weight is the same on both devices. The smartphone features unibody polycarbonate body with glass covering in front for the display.

The display size and resolution are still the same at 6.78-inches and 1080 x 2460 pixels respectively. You getting one additional camera on the back giving a three camera setup this time compared to the two cameras provided in the Hot 30 series.

Infinix Hot 40 features a 6.78-inches IPS LCD punch-hole display with a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels, which translates to a pixel density of approximately 396 ppi. The device also delivers 90Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of around 500 nits.

Magic Ring is the new introduction to the display interface. This new feature is similar to the Dynamic Island feature that we saw in the latest iPhones like the iPhone 15 Plus, the iPhone 15 Pro, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max offering a new way to interact with your smartphone.

The Magic Ring interface expands the punch hole camera on the display to a notification bar providing fast and easy access to information like charging progress. When receiving a call it will also offer information on who is calling.

On the right side, you get the volume buttons and a power button which doubles as a fingerprint sensor while there is a SIM port on the left and the USB Type-C port, speaker grille offering stereo with DTS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack is on the bottom.


Infinix Hot 40 offers a triple camera setup. The main lens is a 50-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/1.6, a wide-angle field of view, and autofocus capability. It boasts of a good low-light performance with its new and improved AI algorithm.

This is supported by a 2 megapixels macro lens and a 0.08MP lens. The camera combo promises a colorful, bright, and sharp photos. A quad-LED flash is provided on the back, which helps to illuminate subjects in low-light conditions and produce brighter and clearer photos.

The selfie camera is seeing a massive upgrade from an 8 megapixels camera in the Hot30 to an impressive 32 megapixels camera in the latest iteration. Take the best selfies and make sharp video calls with this camera offering an f/2.2 aperture. The camera features full HD video recording capabilities and dual-LED flash with shooting modes such as portrait, beauty, and wide selfie to provide users with a range of options for taking the perfect shot and video calls.

The chipset also features an Mali-G52 MC2 GPU, which is adequate for basic gaming and graphic-intensive tasks. With the device running the same chipset, you may wonder whether it offers any performance upgrades.
