Another budget smartphone lineup from Infinix Mobile enters the club because they just introduced the HOT 11 and HOT 11S. One of their new smartphones features a trendy 50MP camera setup and a higher 90Hz screen refresh rate.
The first in the HOT 11 series is, of course, the HOT 11 that features a MediaTek Helio G70 octa-core processor. This device already has 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB internal storage. You can insert up to 256GB microSD card in this phone in case the 64GB is not enough for you. It will also give you hours of usage, thanks to its large 5,200mAh battery capacity. Besides, you can charge this device with a 10W fast charger.
HOT 11 also features a large 6.6 inches IPS display with FHD+ resolution and 440 PPI. However, this model still lacks a high screen refresh rate. On the top of it is a waterdrop notch that carries an 8MP selfie camera. While for the rear camera, only has a 13MP main shooter with an AI lens and quad rear flash.
Next is the more powerful HOT 11S that features the latest affordable MediaTek Helio G88 octa-core processor. Infinix also put 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB internal storage to this device. But this HOT 11S also has a dedicated slot so you can also insert up to 256GB microSD card and two SIM cards.
Compared to the inferior HOT 11, this phone has a smaller 5,000mAh battery capacity. But the good thing is, it supports a higher 18W fast charging.
Moreover, it also has a bigger 6.78 inches NEG Dinorex T2X-1 Glass-protected LTPS LCD screen with FHD+ resolution. As I mentioned above, this HOT 11S boasts a 90Hz screen refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate as well. Its screen also features a trendy punch-hole that carries an 8MP selfie camera.
These new HOT 11 and HOT 11S already run on XOS 7.6 based on Android 11. They also feature 4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 5.0, OTG, fingerprint sensor, face unlock, USB Type-C, and more. Lastly, the available colors of these phones are Purple, Green Wave, and Polar Black.
