The Design and Display
The Infinix Hot 9 features one of the most better-looking design upgrades we have seen in the Hot 9 series. Compare it with that of the Infinix Hot 8 and you immediately notice a very refined design, one that tries it best to fit into the latest trend.
The rear of the Infinix Hot 9 features curved edges and a glossy finish with a mild gradation in color. This rear panel is home to a capacitive fingerprint sensor, a quad-camera setup and the Infinix logo, which indicates its an Infinix phone.
Upfront, we have set up that resembles that of the Infinix S5. It’s a 6.6-inch IPS LCD display housing a single camera cut-out. This display has a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and a screen density of 269 PPI.
Infinix included a beefier camera system in the Hot series this year. They managed to squeeze in quad rear cameras in here, which allowed for more camera features.
The primary camera sensor varies according to the storage variants you purchase. variants below 64GB will have a 13MP primary camera, while variants with 64GB and above will have a 16MP primary camera. Other cameras included in this quad-camera setup include a 2MP macro camera, a 2MP depth camera and a QVGA camera which helps in taking photos in low light conditions.
This camera setup is supported by a triple LED flash and is capable of shooting photos in HDR, Panorama, and videos maxed at 1080p @ 30fps. for selfies, it makes use of an 8MP shooter, which is capable of shooting photos and also shoot videos maxed at 1080p 30fps.
