It is not surprising to see the Infinix Hot 9 taking a step further in regards to her design. If it had stood in her normal position or maybe a step low, there is hardly anyone who would think it through in Nigeria.

The placement on the Infinix Hot 9 is traditional to the core.  Starting from my right is the volume and power button, the sim tray is on the left while the speaker grill, Micro USB port, microphone and 3.5m headphone jack are at the bottom. The top is however empty.

A simple flip over to the rear will introduce you to her chains of cameras, an AI quad camera setup I will say: A 16MP + 2MP + 2MP + QVGA with Flash. The camera has a macro lens that grant you access to more details with closer objects.

Also, the popular AI beauty mode that intelligently beautify images with AI Beauty Mode function and create your own beauty style while capturing in this mode can be found on the camera app of the Infinix Hot 9 in Nigeria.

Final Thoughts

The Infinix HOT series have come a long way. Form first generation Infinix Hot to the present Infinix Hot 9 of 2020, there is definitely a lot to talk about in span of 9 years, i believe there is more to say when it clocks 10 years in Nigeria.

All said and done, there have been some upgrades here. We cannot deny the fact that the Infinix Hot 9 has her strongest point when it comes to design. That is by far the biggest upgrade on this device.

The software is number two, with Infinix installing the XOS 6 UI with Android 10 here is indeed awesome. Don’t forget that Infinix has one of the best user interface you can find on a budget smartphone in Nigeria.
