Design and Display

At first glance, you will notice that there wasn’t any new design changes to the Hot 7 Pro. It has exactly the same design as its predecessor.

At the rear is a dual camera with dual flash and a fingerprint sensor. It has that IPhone cutout notch, which together with the slim bezel on both sides allow for more screen space. Which is perfect for playing games and watching movies. The notch houses the selfie camera, sensors, ear speaker and flash.

The screen is equipped with display protection corning gorilla glass. It also has a 2.5D glass to give it that premium look.

The Infinix Hot 7 Pro is 8mm in thickness and weighs approximately 174 grams. It comes with a headphone jack and USB charging port which are placed at the bottom side of the phone.

in terms of display, it features a 6.2 inch IPS LCD display, with a resolution of 720 x 1500 pixel and aspect ratio of 19:9. It has approximately 82% screen to body ratio.

Camera

The Infinix Hot 7 Pro comes with dual 13MP main shooter which has an f/2.0 aperture plus
a 2MP depth sensor camera. Both of which is located at the rear. Also at the rear is a dual led flash for taking photos under low light condition.

These two camera work together to produce high quality images and videos of up to 1080p at 30fps(frame per second). The dual led flash is perfect for taking pictures as well as videos at low light or night time.

At the front is an 8MP selfie camera which is housed at the notch with a led flash. The selfie camera can record videos of up to 720p and features face beautification for taking the perfect selfie. other features of the camera include Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, paranoma etc.

Storage and Battery

The Infinix Hot 7 Pro is equipped with a 3GB RAM for multitasking and a 32GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 128GB.

It comes with a massive 4000mAh Li-Ion non removable battery that can last for hours when fully charged.

Infinix mobility is well  known for their massive battery capacity. So I wasn’t too surprised when the hot 7 pro was announced with a 4000mAh battery.

Software and Hardware

The Infinix Hot 7 pro comes with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with the Infinix XOS 4.1 Honeybee Skin.

As far as the CPU goes, it features a MediaTek MT6580A Soc. It has a quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.3GHz with  Mali-400 GPU.


Some Drawback Of The Infinix Hot 7 Pro

The Infinix Hot 7 pro does not support 4G LTE. Which is a major setback of this smartphone. Since almost all mobile carriers now support 4G network.

Another major setback of this smartphone is the fact that it does not support fast charging. With the massive 4000mAh battery capacity, users will have to wait a long time before the phone is fully charged.

The Processor, GPU and RAM are all features of a mid range smartphone. But considering the price of the Infinix Hot 7 Pro, this is something we are willing to take.
