Infinix Hot 7 is the latest smartphone from Infinix under it affordable HOT series. But unlike the Infinix Hot 6 and the hot 6 Pro, the new Infinix Hot 7 is design like the recently announced Hot 6x, featuring a large 6.2-inch display and the trending Notch display cut-out introduced in the Apple iPhone X.

Infinix hot 7 specifications

The specifications and features of the Infinix hot 7 is not too far from what we saw in the previous Hot 6, except for the introduction of an all new display cut-out, which adds more beauty and premium feels to the device.

Just as mentioned above, the Infinix Hot 7 comes with a 6.2-inch display, featuring 720 x 1520 pixels resolution. Above the device is the display cut-out, hosting the front-facing camera, LED flash, light sensor, and of course, the earpiece grill.

Surprisingly, Infinix Mobility is still using MediaTek’s MT6580 CPU. This is the older Quad-core Cortex-A7 SoC, clocked at 1.3GHz, along with Mali-400MP2 GPU. However, the Hot 7 has a pro version which runs on a more powerful Mediatek CPUs.

It has 1/2 GB of RAM and a 16/32 GB internal storage. The ability to expand RAM size is not available in mobile phones yet, and don’t expect it anytime soon. But you can of course expand the built-in storage up to 32GB via SD card.

On the camera department, the Hot 7 is got a dual 13 + 2-megapixel sensor at the back, and a single 8-megapixel sensor up-front, coupled a single LED flash, to help brighten selfie photos at night

So what’s more? Does the Infinix Hot 7 have support for  4G LTE network? No. Hot 7 has only 3G network. Does the hot 7 have Fingerprint sensor and face Unlock? Yes, there’s a rear Fingerprint sensor and support for FaceID.

Just got mine. I am very disappointed the phone does not support 4G network. Even the 3G is too slow. Not an improvement at all on the part of the manufacturer infinix. A new and latest phone for that matter. Really feel sad and disappointed buying the phone.
