Right on the heels of the launch of the latest member of the Hot S family comes the Infinix Hot 6 Pro.
The device, a sequel to last year’s Hot 5, has been updated with a modern design, a larger display size (still in the same footprint), an interesting twist to the camera department.
Let’s look at the device …
- Network: 2G / 3G / 4G
- Display: 6.0 inches, IPS LCD Touchscreen display — (720 x 1440 pixels)
- Software: Android version 8.0 (Oreo)
- Processor: 1.4 GHz Quad-core CPU (Qualcomm Snapdragon 425)
- Memory: 2/3 GB RAM | 16/32 GB ROM
- Cameras: Front — 5 MP (with flash) | Rear — Dual Setup: 13 MP (f/2.0) + 2MP, PDAF, LED flash, 1080p video @ 30fps
- Battery: 4000 mAh
Software, Design, Display
As always, the new Infinix Hot 6 Pro is an LTE-enabled dual-SIM Android smartphone running on the Oreo flavor of the operating system but skinned with Infinix’ latest custom user interface — XOS 3.0 Hummingbird.
Design-wise, nothing much has really changed in terms of the material used, but aesthetically, the Hot 6 Pro is markedly different from the Hot 5. This is, in part, due to the fact that the Hot 6 has the trendy tall 18:9 display as seen on modern flagships and slimmer bezels.
The display is, as usual, a 720p IPS LCD panel which spans 6 inches diagonally across the device making its pixel density a very modest 268 Pixels Per Inch.
Protection-wise, there’s no Corning Gorilla glass on the display, so you’d have to make do with a tempered glass.
Performance, Hardware, Cameras
Continuing in the steps of the Hot S3, the Infinix Hot 6 Pro features, under its hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.
The specific chipset is the Snapdragon 425 which makes the device a 64 Bit Quad-core smartphone having a CPU speed clocked at 1.4 GHz. Also, thanks to the CPU, graphics processing on the Infinix Hot 6 Pro is handled by the Adreno 308 GPU.
Regarding internal memory and RAM, you’d have to pick between two options:
- A Hot 6 Pro with just 2GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage, or,
- A Hot 6 Pro with 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage.
No matter which option you end up picking, however, the onboard memory can be expanded further by means of an external microSD card.
For selfies, snaps and video calls, the Infinix Hot 6 Pro sports a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter which has a dedicated flashlight, while at the back, the camera setup is dual.
This dual setup consists of a primary lens (13MP) and a secondary one (2MP). The rear setup features phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and is capable of shooting 1080 videos at 30 frames per second.
Other features worth pointing out include:
- Face Unlock,
- A fingerprint reader at the back,
- A massive 4000 mAh battery,
- OTG support,
- No dual front-facing speakers this year.
