After the launch of the Infinix Hot 6, many people following the trend have been believing that the Hot 7 will be the next in line, if that is your guess then you are right. The Infinix Hot 7 is here, the device is a mid-range smartphone with cool features at an affordable price.

The new Hot 7 is the latest addition to the Infinix Hot series, it comes with features and specification to meet the demand of every budget-oriented consumer. Also, the device comes in two variants one featuring a 1GB Ram and a single 13MP back camera and the second featuring a 2GB Ram and dual 13MP and 2MP back camera.

Both devices will go on sale at a different price, however, the prices difference is not that much. Here is a summary of the specification.

Infinix Hot 7 - Design and Display

For those that love large display phones, the Infinix Hot 7 is packed with a large 6.2-inch touchscreen display with a 19:9 aspect ratio big screen and 720 x 1440pixels resolution that brings a more preferable bright display. The device has a bathtub notch at the top where the front facing camera, LED flash and other sensors are located.


The body of the device is made of plastic, as seen in the Hot 6 considering that it is a budget device. The Hot 7 is designed to meet the users choice and are available in Black, Purple and Gold colour options. It is also designed to feature a Dual SIM slot and a dedicated MicroSD card slot for storage expansion.

At the back of the device is the dual 13MP + 2MP camera for the Hot 7 Pro while the Hot 7 features just a 13MP camera at the center is the fingerprint scanner and a footer located at the bottom.

Infinix Hot 7 - Performance, Storage and Camera

As for the performance. First, Infinix Mobility employed an entry-level chipset in the name of MediaTek MT6580P to power the smartphone. Quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, found on the chipset, functions in relaying its roles. This quite below our expectation as performance is very important.

We expect to use a device free from nagging and hanging. Again, it is packed with a 1GB and 2GB ram, the latter offers better performance. So, depending on your taste, you can choose between the 1GB or 2GB RAM to serve your needs. Android 8.1 Oreo OS is pre-loaded with apps on the device.

As for the storage, there is a 16GB internal storage capacity that allows you to save as much as you want, and if you are running low with storage space, the device can still be expanded using a MicroSD card up to 128GB. This gives you more room to save more file with no issues.


The Hot 7 and the Pro version, both come with an 8MP front facing camera and LED light, while at the back there is a difference. The Hot 7 has a single 13MP camera, while the Hot 7 Pro has a dual 13MP and 2MP back camera. Below the camera is the back LED flashlight that allows you to take good photos even in a dark place.

Infinix Hot 7 - Battery and Other Features

The battery is a major deciding issue especially for those who stay where there is no light. Nobody would like to carry the charger everywhere looking for where to constantly charge your smartphone. This device is a large 4000mAh battery capacity. It's quite unfortunate that it does not support Fast Charging.


The device promises a whole usage even under heavy usage. Furthermore, You can secure the device with the latest face lock and fingerprint scanner. In terms of connectivity, it features a 3G and 2G network connectivity for browsing, an OTG, Bluetooth, Hotspot and many more cool features that make the device awesome.

Infinix Hot 7 - Price and Availability

The device is currently available for order in Nigeria, both online and offline. So, You can buy the smartphone anywhere across the country. Infinix Hot 7 price in Nigeria ranges from ₦37,000 to ₦44,000 depending on the location and deal.

Infinix Hot 7 - Pros
  • Large battery capacity that can a whole day even under heavy usage
  • Affordable price
  • Good and beautiful design
  • Notch design - the latest trend
  • Good camera quality
Infinix Hot 7 Cons
  • Powered with a MediaTek processor even in 2019, we expected a more powerful processor for better performance
  • No 4G LTE
  • No Fast Charging support
Finally, you should look very carefully if you want to buy this device, it comes in two variants, the Pro version is the higher, more expensive one with a better feature as compared to the Hot 7. However, taking the price into consideration, we can't more than this feature.

The feature is actually good and I can recommend the device to anyone looking for a budget-oriented smartphone under 40,000 naira in Nigeria this 2019.

Thanks
