Infinix HOT 8 Unboxing

Our Infinix HOT 8 Unboxing is here. Infinix actually launched two variants of the device just recently. There’s the HOT 8 and we are also getting an Infinix HOT 8 Lite.

Infinix is selling the HOT 8 at Ksh. 10,999 while the HOT 8 Lite will retail at Ksh. 9,999. Both devices are available at Infinix outlets across the country and XPark formerly known as infinixmall.

We got our hands on the HOT 8 which comes with a 6.6-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720×1600 pixels.

It is powered by a 2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processor and comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 256GB). It runs XOS 5.0 based on Android Pie and packs and is powered by a 5000mAh battery which we will also be testing in the coming few days, so expect a post on that.

As far as the camera is concerned, the HOT 8  packs a 13-megapixel primary camera with an f/1,8 aperture and a second 2-megapixel camera. The selfie camera, on the other hand, is 8-megapixel with an f/2.0 aperture.

For Ksh. 10,999 the device is one of the most affordable phones with a triple rear camera system.
