Overview

The Hot 10i is another variation of the Hot 10-series from Infinix. This smartphone is available in two versions; the Asian version with MediaTek Helio P65 octa-core CPU, which is a better CPU option than the African version that has UNISOC SC9863A octa-core CPU. RAM and storage option are not same either; the Asian version has 3/4/6 GB RAM with 32/64/128GB ROM, while the African model has just 2GB RAM with either 32/64GB ROM. All other specs of the phones as same across both regional models.

As for the display, the Hot 10i sports a compact 6.52-inches screen with 720 x 1600 pixels resolution. The screen is IPS panel, and it has a notch overhead which is the house for the selfie sensor. The built quality is plastic, hence there are some stripe lining going on on the rear, which is aimed at enhancing grip.

The device packs dual camera setup on the back. These includes a 13-megapixel autofocus sensor with f/1.8 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, coupled with four LED flashes on the rear. For selfie, you are getting a single 8-megapixel lens kept within the notch upfront.

The device is available in Morandi Green, 7º Purple, 95º Black and Heart of Ocean colors. It support FaceID and come with a rear placed fingerprint scanner. You are also getting dual Nano-SIMs with 4G LTE network on both SIMs, a large 6000mAh battery, and the Android 11 with XOS 7.5 out of the box. The full specs of Infinix Hot 10i is contained in the table below.

  1. Thank you guys for existing and doing a review of this particular phone. If any African user only had mainstream website as only source of information, we would have been fooled believing the asian version is universal and be deceived.

    • It is not clear why some companies embark on such schemes. Just hoping that Nigeria and other African countries will have a functional body to regulate some of these unacceptable schemes in the future. Infinix have been playing these deals since the launch of Hot 6-series.

  2. This is a kind of disdain for us as customers. They don’t care for the African continent at all. Meanwhile they are creating specifics phones series for countries like India exclusively. It is time we, as African create our own brands, made by us from scratch. It would not be that difficult since most of the raw material comes from our underground. We must build entrepreneur mindset and invest in manufacturing of goods and services. Maybe you should write an article on this theme and list all the brands and models that are concerned.
