Infinix Hot 12: A new budget smartphone

Infinix has listed a new smartphone in its Hot series – Infinix Hot 12. It was announced with two other smartphones – Infinix Note 12 and Infinix Smart 6 HD. We are yet to be informed about the availability of the Infinix Hot 12, but we will discuss its specs, features, and expected price in Nepal.

Infinix Hot 12 Overview

Display and Design

The new Hot-series installment here brings a 6.82-inch IPS LCD screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. It boasts a 720×1612-pixels capacity alongside a 259-pixel density. Above the screen, there is a center-aligned punch-hole cutout to hold the front-facing camera. Previously, there was a waterdrop notch in its predecessors. This means the design is a bit upgraded. However, it is the compensation for the HD+ screen instead of FHD+ like on its previous installments on the Hot series.

The body weighs 195 grams and embeds a dimension of 170.5×77.6×8.3mm. Both frame and the rear panel are made up of plastic, but the front is glass-made. Then, the back features a rectangular camera bump as well. There are four color options available for the phone – Origin Blue, Lucky Green, Racing Black, and Legend White.

Performance and Memory

Powering the device is the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset based on a 12nm fabrication process. It integrates an octa-core CPU with two Cortex-A75 and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at the speed of 2.0GHz and 1.8GHz respectively. Likewise, the graphics depart is handled by Arm’s Mali-G52 MC2 processor.
