Infinix Hot 11 for the budget buyers!

So, today we will see what the new Infinix Hot 11 has to offer us. We know that Infinix launched two brand new smartphones aimed at the budget segment of the market. There hadn’t been as much activity in the under 10k segment as there had been in the mid-range price segment recently, so these two launches have really arrived at the right time. The Infinix Hot 11 is the more affordable model out of the two smartphones, with a starting price in India of Rs. 8,999. This budget device is well packed with features, such as a great display, massive battery, and an efficient gaming processor, among others.

The Infinix Hot 11 was launched on 17th September 2021. In terms of display, the phone features a 6.60-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1,080x2,408 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display is vibrant and the colours are vivid. In dimensions, Infinix Hot 11 measures 164.70 x 76.20 x 8.90mm (height x width x thickness) and weighs 201.00 grams. The feel of the smartphone can be a bit bulky because it weighs on the heavier side. That could be one of the slight drawbacks for some. The design is nice and sleek and the smartphone has offered four distinct colour variants of 7 Degrees Purple, Emerald Green, Polar Black, and Silver Wave colours.

Now coming to the performance aspect. The Infinix Hot 11 is powered by a 2 MHz octa-core MediaTek Helio G70 processor. The Helio G70 is a decent addition for regular uses and also some budget gaming so I think this is a suitable integration. The processor is coupled with 4GB of RAM and packs 64GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card with a dedicated slot. The Infinix Hot 11 runs XOS 7.6 and is based on Android 11. Further accompanying the efficient processor and performance features is a massive 5200mAh battery which I think is brilliant. The weight of the smartphone is mostly because of the battery but that’s alright because personally, I would deal with a slightly sore arm if my phone can offer a really good backup.

The smartphone comes with a decent dual camera setup at the back of the device. Infinix Hot 11 on the rear packs a dual camera module that features a 13- megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. This is supported by another 13- megapixel sensor. The rear camera setup comes with autofocus. For all your selfies and video chats, Infinix has also provided a single front camera setup, featuring an 8- megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. The front camera also comes with autofocus.

The Infinix Hot 11 supports all the regular connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth v5.00, USB OTG, and USB Type-C. There are also a number of sensors on the smartphone which include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass/ magnetometer, proximity sensor, and a fingerprint sensor. I think overall, for the price point Infinix Hot 11 is as good as it can get.
