Have you seen a smartphone with dual selfie cameras before? Imagine how the photos would look like. Meet the Infinix Hot 7 Pro – The 1st Infinix smartphone with Quad camera lens.
The Hot 7 Pro is a camera centric smartphone that was unveiled after the Hot 7 was released. At first, it wasn’t clear if there was going to be an Infinix Hot 7 Pro but it ended up landing in a shelf.
This is because Infinix went against the normal tradition of releasing two variants at the same time. Usually when we see a new launch there is mostly a Pro version of it.
That said, let us dive into the full review of the Infinix Hot 7 Pro. We need to find out if the Pro variant really deserve to be delayed against the odds, considering the fact that it was released on a later date in Nigeria.
Release date: April, 2019 OS: Android 9.0 Pie Screen size: 6.2-inch HD+ Resolution: 1520 x 720p RAM: 2GB/3GB ROM: 32GB Battery: 4000mAh Rear camera: 13MP + 2MP Front camera: 13MP + 2MP Network: Global 4G LTE Sim-slot: Dual (Nano-sims)
Availability & Price
In Nigeria, the Infinix Hot 7 Pro is available in Gradient Purple, Milan Black, Sky Blue and Champagne Gold colors. It is selling at a budget friendly price and can be bought in online and offline stores in Nigeria.
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro comes with a similar design as that on her lower variant only that its got a better build quality; one can clearly see her full view notch display.
On the notch is where you will find the dual selfie cameras and flash light. The receiver was moved to the top because of the limited space in front.
Every other placement is not far from usual. The fingerprint reader and the vertical camera bump are placed at the back of the Hot 7 Pro. This is a common touch that is trending in 2019 particularly here in Nigeria.
There are also some inscriptions at the back of the Hot 7 Pro. At the bottom is where infinix placed her 3.5mm headphone jack, micro USB port and speaker grill.
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro also comes in a portable size. The volume and power buttons are placed within your reach on the right side of the phone, so you don’t have to stretch too much.
Let’s talk about the display. On the Hot 7 Pro is a 6.2 inch HD+ full view notch display that is occupying almost every part of the front.
The full view notch display comes with a 1520 x 720p resolution which ensures better clarity and quality viewing experience. You get enough space to play with right here in Nigeria.
If you are uncomfortable with the notch on the Infinix Hot 7 Pro and you find it standing in your way, you can choose to take it off by activating some settings options.
The overall rating of the display is crips, clear, sharp and bright, it can used to for mobile gaming, watching movies and even do some studies in Nigeria.
The camera is the biggest tech in the Infinix Hot 7 Pro. This is the part that made history for Infinix Mobility in the first place, we are talking about quad(4) cameras here.
Like it or not, the Infinix Hot 7 Pro is the first Infinix smartphone to have two selfie cameras. On a good day, a single selfie camera does a lot of magic, imagine what two can do?
On the Hot 7 Pro are two front-facing cameras,13MP + 2MP dual lens system that comes with a flash which helps to render crystal images with Bokeh effects.
The dual selfie cameras also comes with AI technology that lets you detect gender, age and facial expressions with beautiful solution for a perfect selfie shot.
At the rear are 13MP + 2MP dual lens cameras with PDAF fast focus that lets you take pictures with more natural looks and feels. Imagine how great your pictures will appear.
The dual rear cameras on the Infinix Hot 7 Pro also feature a wide-aperture mode that lets you adjust the focus with expansive field of view.
With her triple camera setup, you can now take more natural and stunning pictures in Nigeria with the help of her upgraded AI quad lens that is ready to serve.
The Infinix Hot 7 Pro comes with a battery capacity that is enough to save the day. In fact, you don’t need a power bank to help you out in Nigeria.
Under the hood is a non-removable 4000mAh battery that can conveniently last for a full day on a single charge.
Infinix Mobility even guarantees up to two days but that would be for light users who hardly do much rendering with the phone.
