On the Infinix Hot 8, we have a 6.5-inch sized display screen. The resolution of the Hot 8 is pegged at 720 x 1600 pixels with 20:9 aspect ratio. The phone has a screen-to-body ratio of over 80 percent. Screen type is IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen.

Processor and Software

This Infinix device is rocking the MediaTek Helio A22 chipset. The Quad-core Cortex-A53 processor is clocking up to a speed of 2.0 GHz.  The second model houses a Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 chipset with an Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU.

Looking at the software side, we see the Infinix Hot 8 running on Android 9 (Pie). It is coupled with Inifinix’ in-house XOS 5.0 UI.

Memory

On the storage side, the Infinix Hot 8 features a base capacity of 32GB.  The company decided to go with a 2GB RAM for the Hot 8. You can upgrade the size to 256GB via a microSD card.

Battery

The Infinix Hot 8 features a non-removable Li-Ion battery. The battery is a plus point of this phone. The battery has a capacity of 5000 mAh. Standby time is not known right now.

Obviously, this battery can make the phone last through 24 hours and probably even more. As with recent Infinix devices, the charging does not consume too much time. So there’s no need for long hours to charge this phone.

Camera

The Hot 8 comes with 3 cameras at the back. They include a 13 MP wide camera, and a 2 MP for depth of field sensing. The third lens is a low light sensor, meaning, photos in darker environments are going to be lit up.

The 13 MP lens, being the primary of the 3 at the back, comes with f/1.8 aperture and phase detection autofocus (PDAF). The triple camera setup offers features like bokeh (portrait), panorama, beauty mode, and more.

Selfie camera

The selfie camera on the Hot 8 is 8 MP, with a focus of f/2.0. It is a wide-angle camera. You also get a LED flash on the front to help you take good photos in dark environments.

Sensors

The Infinix Hot 8 has a fingerprint scanner, which is mounted on its back. Also, there is an accelerometer, a compass, and a proximity sensor.
