Infinix Hot 9 Play Highlights and Overview

The Infinix Hot 9 Play is a fresh range of smartphone under the Hot 9-series. The central focus of this phone is the huge screen and the presence of a larger 6000mAh battery. Instead of the 6.6-inch display used in the standard Hot 9, the Hot 9 Play come with a bigger 6.82-inch screen, similar to the Infinix Note 7. The large 6.82-inch display uses a 720 x 1640 pixels resolution, and has a dewdrop notch overhead.

There are two variants of the Hot 9 Play; one with Helio A22 and the higher version with Helio A25 CPU, depending on your region. Built-in storage starts from 2GB RAM, all the way to 4GB RAM, while the internal storage is up to 64GB, further expanded up to 256GB via SD card.

At the back, the Hot 9 has just two rear camera modules; the main sensor is a 13-megapixel shooter pegged with a VGA auxiliary lens, along with a triple LED flash. At the front, there is a single 8-megapixel selfie lens kept in the notch overhead.

What’s more? There is also a rear placed fingerprint scanner and support for dual 4G VoLTE SIMs. Interestingly, the 9 Play packs a larger 6000mAh battery with 10W fast charger. The 2GB RAM version runs on the basic Android 9 (Go Edition), while other RAM variants has standard Android 9 (Pie) out of the box.
