Features of the Infinix Hot 7
Design and Display
The Infinix Hot 7 maintains the trendy slim bezel design like the Hot 6 series. The design is compact so it feels firm in the hands when held. This phone is, however, one for people on a budget hence the plastic design of the outer.
The screen has the 18:9 aspect ratio with the very visible notch at the top. The screen to body ratio is thin, hence providing a large area of the screen to feed the eyes.
At the back of the phone, the camera setup with the dual flashlight is quite visible. The rear camera and flashlight are arranged at the top left section of the phone with the fingerprint sensor placed a few millimetres away to the right of the dual flashlight.
One of the areas, the Infinix Hot 7 impresses is the battery capacity which is not really an over the top capacity but is enough for extensive usage on the device. The 4,000 mAh battery fitted in the Hot 7is efficient and comes with quick charging to get the phone powered up in no time.
Rather than go the way of the Hot 6 to bring dual cameras to the Hot 7, Infinix put up a single 13 MP Camera with an autofocus Dual flash light at the rear of the phone.
The front of the Hot 7 sports an 8 megapixel FF Camera with flash light. Enough to brighten up most of the selfies you will be taking on a budget phone.
Welcome back, MediaTek Processors. The Hot 7 comes with the MediaTek MT6580P chipset. The CPU is a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 type with a maximum CPU Frequency of 1.3GHz.
The phone should be able to handle most multitasking duties as well as deliver properly on playing games.
