Infinix introduced the Hot 12 series today, and its pioneer is called Hot 12i. It’s seemingly the lowest standing of the trio and is an entry-level affair through and through.
The Infinix Hot 12i has an Helio A22 chipset with a 2.0GHz quad-core CPU. On paper, RAM goes up to 4GB, but the company only offers 2GB and 3GB options currently. Storage is 64GB and there is a dedicated microSD slot for expanding that.
The brand did not reveal much about the cameras – we do know the main shooter is 13MP with AF, and we can only assume the other two are 2MP for portrait and macro shots. The selfie camera is behind a waterdrop notch and has an 8MP sensor.
On the front, there is a 6.82” LCD with a 720p resolution. The software is XOS 7.6, based on Android 11.
The phone features a 3.5mm audio jack, but also a micro USB port, which alone should be a dealbreaker for anybody in 2022. The battery capacity is 5,000mAh.
The Infinix Hot 12i is currently available in Nigeria in four colors – Black, Green, Gold, and Blue. Price is NGN 61,800 ($150) for the 2/64 GB variant and NGN 67,000 ($170) for the 3/64 GB version.
The other two phones are not named yet, but we can see one of them will have two cameras on the back, while the other will come with a triple shooter and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
