Infinix is one of the budget smartphone brands in India and had launched a few excellent devices like Smart 3 Plus, HOT 7, HOT 7 Pro and many other successful models. Infinix has been seeking to expand its consumer base in India and to serve them with better, Infinix has launched HOT 8 smartphone for Indian customers. With this new announcement, Infinix has extended its most successful HOT smartphone product range.   

The phone comes in four amazing color options which are Quetzal Cyan, Cosmic Purple, Shark Grey, and Midnight Black. So you can choose any of the colors as these colors are pretty cool and will make you feel premium while holding the smartphone into your hands. We got the phone for review in Quetzal Cyan color and we can say that the phone was looking very classy and its shining body drives everyone’s attention. 

Infinix HOT 8 smartphone is very slim and lightweight. The weight of this smartphone is just 179 grams. The curves given on the corners are very beautiful and it helps you while putting the phone into your pocket. Furthermore, the volume and power button is placed beautifully, you get both the buttons on the right side so you can press these buttons with the use of just one thumb. 

Let’s talk about the in-box accessories, as you are getting a USB cable, a charging adapter, a SIM tray ejector pin, some documents like user guide manuals, a warranty card, and a complimentary back cover. Apart from these, Infinix has also provided a screen protector film that will safeguard your phone from scratches. You will be disappointed bit as this phone does not comes with earphone. 

Infinix HOT 8 is powered with XOS 5.0 Cheetah, based on Android Pie 9 which gives fast and smooth user experience. The phone has Helio P22 Octa-core 64 bit processor and 2.0 GHz GPU that makes this phone more powerful and performance-oriented. You can play popular games and can use many other apps at the same time. The performance will not be affected and the phone will run smoothly because of its better processor. 

HOT 8 has a large 6.52-inch HD+ Drop Notch Display that produces 720*1600 pixel resolution. We are quite satisfied with its display because while watching the YouTube videos on it, it was overall a very remarkable experience for us. Its bright colors and the high contrast ratio impresses a lot and ultimately it feels so amazing to do multitasking with this phone. 

The smartphone boasts an AI-powered Triple rear camera setup. It features 13 MP main camera + 2 MP Depth Sensor and a low light sensor. We clicked pictures and recorded videos in extreme low light conditions and it didn’t disappoint us thanks to its QLED flash. It also has an 8 MP AI selfie camera along with a dedicated front flash. Its selfie camera clicks real-type selfies and if you are selfie addicted then it can be a great choice for you. 

The massive 5000 mAh battery is one of the best things you are getting in this budget. This battery size would never let your phone out of the charge so you can play games, listen to music, watch videos and can do a lot more with HOT 8.  During the review, we didn’t charge this phone for about 2 days and still, we had much battery in hand.  Also, the fingerprint and face unlock features are truly fascinating due to the lightning-fast speed. Both the features are so quick and as we feel, it is faster than any other phone in this category.

So the Hot 8 smartphone is available with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. This amazing smartphone is now sold on Flipkart and priced at Rs. 7999/-. But if you buy this phone before 31st October, you can avail a discount of 1000 Rupees as a part of an ongoing special festive sale on Flipkart.
