Infinix Hot 12 vs Tecno Spark 9 Pro; what difference can you see?

The age-long battle between Infinix’s Hot-series and the Spark series from Tecno has just been rekindled. Tecno decided to go compact, offering the Spark 9 Pro in a rather smaller body with 6.6-inches screen. The dewdrop notch is used on the head, which is not that fancy.

The Hot 12 on the other hand still believes the bigger the better. So it comes in a slightly larger 6.8-inches screen, and it went for a dot-notch screen instead. But the screen resolution is 720p, instead of the 1080p panel on the Spark 9 Pro, although 90Hz refresh is available on both phones.

But guess what; both phones are powered by MediaTek Helio G85 CPU, and same storage options are available on both phones. Where their major difference lies though, is in their camera setup, and the Spark 9 Pro seems to have the win here.
