The all new Infinix Hot 12 is here. The phone which was launched during the University of Nairobi Tech Week promises to bring with it powerful modern features for the fun-loving crowd. It is befitting that during the Tech Week, students were showcasing their innovative ideas for solving challenges around them by creating competitive projects. The Tech Week annual initiative started back in 2018 and has been growing in popularity since. This year for instance, 20 universities across the country took part.
Winners of the contests stand to walk away with cash prizes of upto Ksh.50,000/- and a brand new Infinix Hot 12 Play phones. It is quite apt for Infinix to launch the gadget at a university tech event since it is a tech packed gadget and students will have a lot of use for it.
The Infinix Hot 12 Series
The device has quite a number of impressive features, starting with the trendy straight edge design making it stylish and acceptable among its fans. Infinix has always been known for strong batteries and this one has has a massive 6000mAh, supported by an 18W fast charger. These, plus an enhanced gaming technology and a Helio G85 processor and a 6.8” screen make the phone quite modern, fast, and satisfactory to use.
A slow phone is quite frustrating and thankfully, this is becoming a thing of the past as phone manufacturers up their chip game. The Infinix Hot 12 for instance has a MediaTek 485 gaming chipset which enables it to handle faster demands and speed hoggers like gaming. The G85 gaming chipset adopts dual-core flagship CPU architecture, two fast ARM Cortex-A75 cores up to 2 GHz for performance tasks and six small ARM Cortex – A55 cores up to 1.8 GHz for efficiency. All eight cores can be used together thanks to heterogeneous multiprocessing support. These headline features combined make for a fantastic gaming smartphone enabling Hot 12 to run the top games in sublime quality for an immersive gaming experience.
Day long battery
Of what use is a powerful phone if it can’t stay on for users to enjoy the features at will? The Infinix Hot 12, as in with all other Infinix phones, does not disappoint in this department. With a 6000mAh battery and 18W fast charge, a nonperforming battery is not something users of this phone will have to deal with. The fast charge rate is about 50% power in 50 minutes. Gone are the days when phones had to be charged overnight.
To further improve battery quality, The Infinix HOT 12 is equipped with Infinix self-developed battery lasting technology, which improves the longevity by approximately 25% in a single click. With just 5% power remaining, an additional 2.6 hours of usage can be unlocked using Ultra Power Mode.
Memory and storage are really what make the phone. This device comes with 128GB ROM and 6GB ROM. This allows users to multitask even on the most demanding apps without lags or glitches. It also allows storage of lots of work documents, photos and videos either for work or family memories, and even movies and series for those who are not streaming. Gamers can enjoy fluid frame rates and blazing speed when playing the latest games giving them a considerable advantage over players with older devices.
In case of needs for extra RAM, Infinix has the self-developed RAM fusion technology that means users can extend RAM by 5GB. This makes operations even faster, and the extra RAM gives users extra power when they need it.
Trendy Eye-catching Design
As mentioned earlier, the Infinix HOT 12 has a trendy straight edge design which gives it cleaner lines and a visibly thinner and eye-catching look. The device comes in colour options of racing black, legend white, and original blue, giving users a good range of choice. It is a 6.82” and with a 180Hz touch sampling rate. What this means is that the phone is very responsive and good for demanding apps and gaming.
As for sound, the Hot 12 comes with dual upper and lower speakers for an immersive audio. Good sound is an advantage for everyone – music listeners, online media consumers, and especially gamers who want to combine exciting gaming with real like sound.
For the cameras we are looking at 13MP triple rear AI camera, and 8MP front camera also AI equipped. It also has a powerful image algorithm and users are assured of good photos in different settings. Cameras are one of the first things I test out when a new device comes in and I can’t wait to try this one.
With Infinix XOS operating system, the company has offered users many extra features like smart scene applications, boosted gaming options, and a quick setting to mute messages and calls during gaming sessions.
