It’s only seven months since the last Infinix Hot phone launched in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and other African countries; we already have a new phone on the market: Infinix Hot 8.
For all fans of Infinix Phones, this comes as a very good addition to the family as they don’t have to wait for long to upgrade to the latest Infinix Hot phone.
The Infinix Hot 8 was launched in Accra, Ghana alongside the official unveiling of Shatta Wale as the new Infinix brand ambassador as well as the Hot 8 Invasion concert, which I attended and did really enjoy.

Features of the Infinix Hot 8
Design and Display
The Hot 8 phone features share the likeness of most different budget smartphones. Infinix Mobility has given it a sleek look and also the spherical edges increase the texture of the device.
The gradient colour of the phone is clearly done to enhance the beauty of the phone. There are many colours from which one can choose from — Quetzal Cyan, Cosmic Purple, Shark grey and hour Black.
A feel of the phone reveals that the phone does not slip from hands and it does not weight as much as one would normally expect, considering the size.
The SIM & memory card slot is on the left, with room for 2 SIMs and micro SD card. The 6.6-inch size of the screen may be a very little too huge for one-hand usage, however, a lot more people are comfortable with bigger phones nowadays and this should not be an issue at all.
The Hot 8 features a resolution of 720×1600 pixels with 20:9 screen aspect ratio. The phone features a screen-to-body ratio of over 80 per cent and an IPS Liquid Crystal Display capacitive touchscreen.
Triple Rear Camera
Capture beautiful images with more details for the distance and depth thanks to the 13MP triple rear camera with a Quad Flash. The infused new AI software technology enhances the overall beauty of the resultant images. The camera comes enhanced with the PDAF autofocus function with an F1.8 aperture.
The battery on the Hot 8 should be one of the big plusses of this phone. If you are using your phone for games and social media, the battery should normally last for more than a day.
Also, the battery on the phone will charge fast once you are using the Infinix approved charger the device came with.
Game Mode Mobile customization creates a more fascinating gaming experience, with different modes of quality priority, equilibrium mode and smooth mode being on offer. The frame rate speed has increased by up to 125% and gaming time extended by up to 113% on a single charge due to optimized power consumption, and an overall wi-fi access time increase of 6.7%.
